So now it is a new year, and all the possibilities are before me.
True to my need for constant overstimulation and unrelenting stress, I have enrolled in an online archaeology course. I am very curious how the online thing will work, as my scant knowledge of archaeology has left me with pictures of using q-tips to gently brush the surface soil from an acre in Montana in hopes of unearthing a wooly mammoth or raptor; I have a feeling I will not be undertaking a similar dig in my suburban backyard (though if I should, I expect to find a cache of toy soldiers).
But (as they say on TV) wait, that’s not all! I also enrolled in a systems analysis course. Much of the material is known, but there was enough subject matter that interests me and is relevant to my chosen work to make the course attractive.
Now I sit here with buyer’s remorse, wondering if I am having a crisis of faith or insanity.
