I had planned to "do stuff" today. "Stuff" along the lines of going to the gym and go to the movies. But I woke up this morning feeling a bit meh, and scrapped those plans in favour of a day of doing some laundry and reading. High stakes excitement right there people. Don't you wish your life was like mine?
I did do a bit of university research though. The deadline for applications is 28 September, so the clock is beginning to tick. The course I'd really like to do (at RMIT) is only offered on a full-time basis, which has thrown a spanner in the works somewhat. It would be almost impossible to keep my current 3-day-a-week job and do the course, so I've had to expand my search and am now contemplating a part-time BA at Melbourne Uni. Six years of part-time study is better than the next six years of no study... I think I'll just jump in.
Having said that, it does make me wonder just how appropriately this picture (which a friend had on his facebook page this morning), sums up my life...
Sure, a lot of things in my life which began with this philosophy turned out well, and I'm sure returning to study will be one of them. However a large number haven't worked out quite as well... hence the hesitancy. But hey, life is short. Why not live by this principle? The good in my life has far outweighed the bad.
Right. Back to the research.
Speaking of studying, have you seen this? The delightful Melba alerted my attention to it in a post the other day. Yale courses, available online. FOR FREE. So good I decided to link it twice. Awesome. Thank you Yale. And thank you Melba!
