Friday_Fill-In_BadgeHere are the fill-ins:

  1. My Chinese zodiac animal sign is __________________.

  4. In hindsight, _______________________.

Here are my responses:

coconut-1123738_640My Chinese zodiac animal sign is the snake, which I think is incredibly funny because *someone* I know isn’t particularly fond of snakes. .

My zodiac sign is Leo, and the description fits me in a lot of ways. Other ways, not so much.

Income tax season usually is a good thing for us. People call David for help and he is usually able to help them out of whatever mess they might be in. One of those somebodies is going to bake us a coconut pie. 🙂

In hindsight, I never should have tried going back to college. It cost money that we didn’t (and don’t) have. It did not help my self-esteem issues to be called “abnormal” because I am an introvert. It just left us broker and me feeling even worse about myself (and deepened my introversion!).  Besides, our health issues have removed opportunities to use what I was learning anyway. I would have been better off fighting it through on my own in regards to learning what I wanted to learn. YouTube has lots of educational videos and there is a plethora of websites discussing anything that I would want to learn. AND I can watch/read those on my own time table!

Have a blessed weekend, y’all!

    The interesting thing is that after people graduate from college and enter the professional world, very few read. Some read a few career-related magazine articles, some even have continued education requirements. But if you were to continue to read books in a field you are interested in, you could easily surpass the knowledge of someone who is working in the field, and your information would be more up-to-date. I think it’s a good lesson to take from that experience, that you can continue to learn and grow on your own without having to be in a college class. You get to customize your learning to what you’re most interested in, and you get to do it in the manner that best fits your learning style.

    • Thank you. That is exactly how I feel about it. I can learn what I want to learn, when, where, and how I want to learn it. AND I don’t have all those papers to write and worry about being good enough. The stress is less and the retention and enjoyment are much greater.

      Have a blessed weekend. 🙂
