My addiction to learning…

I really hadn’t realized I was missing school. I earned my Associates of Science in Criminal Justice two years ago and have just been going through life as usual. I mentioned before that I had signed up for a grant writing class, but there really wasn’t any enthusiasm attached to it. It could help fill a need in our forward progression and that is exactly how I felt about it when I signed up for the class.
Then the confirmation email came. I turned into a giddy…well, a giddy school girl. I hopped online and set up my learning account immediiately. Class starts in 4 more days. I. Can’t. Wait.
After setting up my online learning account, I clicked the ‘view catalogue’ button. There are 6 more classes I have put in my learning que. Three veterinary assistant classes, another grant writing class, a wordpress.com class, and a wordpress.org class. I am bubbling over with excitement for and anticipation of these classes.
Each class is 8 weeks long (6 weeks, 2 lessons each week, with 2 weeks to finish each assignment). My first instructor recommends scheduling my next class for 8 weeks out so there is no overlap. Certificates of completion are given for each class.
When I talked with my husband about my excitement, the other classes I want to take, and my instructors recommendation, my husband laughed. He knows the class load I took on while getting my AS and KNOWS I will end up overlapping classes. I have to admit he is probably right.
My plan is to get started with this grant writing course and see how I’m doing (i.e. am I overwhelmed with the topic, am I feeling confident in my assignment completion, am I getting everything done way ahead of time and losing interest because there is too much time between assignments?). Whatever happens, I’m feeling like I have direction, again. Learning is amazing stuff!
