It’s the Xmas season………….I didn’t win the “Mega-Million” lottery

December 19, 2013

I suppose “Bah-Humbug” is in order. Or a piece of coal. Or a Mr. Grinch!

“I think not.” I believe I am exactly where I should be, and doing exactly what I should be doing.University is out for the holidays. I’ve only 12 more months until I am officially “educated,” and at 66 1/2 years of age………………..that ain’t a bad deal!!!!!!! This little academic quest I’m on will total 42 years in the making (1972-2014). I mean, how silly can you get. Little did I know, when I began this gauntlet in the 70’s, my life would go full circle and I would be back in the same building, in the same university (it was a college then), chasing the same piece of parchment. 

I believe that’s called perseverance

University is so much more fun when your older than your professors … there be some irony there. I love academia, I just don’t want to be an academic.

I want to go fishing.

Life is good ….I wish all great holidaes!

Be safe and NO text’n and driv’n!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • I appreciate be’n missed, but I never really left; I just took a minor side track through “The Looking Glass,” and while I was gone I found a great piece of advice:
      ““It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.”
      What fun life can be if you seek the enjoyment that avails you.
      Best!

      You’re welcome, my friend!

      Thank you so much for sharing this piece of advice.

      No pain, no gain…let’s just be hopeful that wherever we’ve gotten swept to, we may at least gain something useful even if we are landing hard on our bottoms…hehe…for that’s the fun part of being alive, my friend!!

      Have a wonderful weekend ahead, always~ Cheers!! 😀
