I took that so long ago it doesn't count anymore but it was hard too.
Nutrition, hmmm. are you pursuing something in the medical field or just following your whims?
I am going to take World Regional Geography.
How do you feel about the extra time you have now?
I feel sort of unmoored.

I am hoping to get my M.S. in Nutrition, eventually. I feel...not sure how I feel.

I am claiming you as my new school buddy! A master's in Nutrition sounds pretty cool! Does that mean you like to cook also?

As a voyeur I like the social sciences and especially cultures. I am too old and disabled to pursue a career. it's sad, but it is what it is. I would be some kind of sociological nerd. We will see where it leads. I don't have expectations, I just love the classes I have been taking.

I wasted the day on Facebook, it just pissed me off mainly. politics and blatant stupidity.

I am still far from being a functional member of society. Or maybe I'm closer than I realize, but who knows? I have not cooked much, so not much experience there. I am just going to settle back into school gradually. At least that's the plan for now.

I tried an online class last Summer finishing my Bachelor's. I did better in it than any other class I had at that university. Now I am moving to do a Master's in Museum Studies. I actually became friends with a girl online through that class, and have not actually met her in person.

savadpeas, I am not normal and will never be. My PTSD got badly triggered shortly after we moved here and then I no longer felt safe. I would only go out for medical appmts and missed quite a few of those. It came down to the only thing that could lure me out was to take classes. I wish I could take more than one at a time but I am not there yet. I thought I had to be a certain age to get the discount to go and later found out that being disabled qualified me, so I wish I had done this some time ago.
David, my common law husband, has been critical. I feel safe, secure, loved by him and I dote on him. I don't socialize or have friends as I can't stand pointless small talk.
But I can better myself, engage in a little bit of the world, do something I love and am good at by taking a class.
My house is a disaster area. I told myself I would get it all tidy over summer vacation, well I am not doing much with that so far. Fine, I am still decompressing.
I believe you can take part in as much functional society as you choose, growing stronger all the time.
Congratulations and well done aqua!! What an interesting course of study!
