Back to School?

One of my sisters-in-law is going back to school. She's fifty-three and has two bachelors degrees, but she's ready to take on a new challenge.

I envy her energy! I have no desire to go back to school. The mere thought of sitting in a classroom and taking notes or having to pay rapt attention to a professor literally gives me a stomach ache.

All I've ever really wanted to be was a writer. Even as I made my way though college and a career in advertising, all I ever wanted to do was write. Hope it works out.

However, even though I have no desire for another career, there are things I'd like to learn - or maybe there are just plenty of things I'd like to already know.

Here's my list:

Court stenographer (I've always thought they were cool)
Paralegal (I like research)
Archivist (I like research and old stuff)
Web site designer (Shouldn't everyone know how to do this?)
Physician Assistant (No med school - med school sounds horrible)
Computer Animation Designer (I doubt I'd have the patience, though)

How about you? Do you have a contingency list, wish list, or maybe something you'd like to seriously pursue?


  1. Even if I already graduated from my bachelor degree, I still wanted to go for another course or rather a list of course:

    graphic designer
    a chef

    I think that's all. Oh, and if that happens, I'll use a stainless steel tiffin for my pack lunches. =)

  2. Those tiffins are cool! Nice idea!
    You must be very artistic.
