" 'The time has come,' the Walrus said..." -- Self-betterment school

 
{"We say we waste time, but that is impossible. We waste ourselves.”-  Alice Bloch }

I'm declaring MAY to be my personal 'going back to school month". Yeah, I know, graduation was basically last week for lots of people, but I've been out of 'real' school for a while now. And I miss it. This has been a long time coming. Lots of discussions about motivation and time management and personal goals. 

It's past time. I've made a plan. I'm turning off Hulu.

{All my favorite shows suck now, anyway. Ha ha!}

I used to READ! I used to DO stuff! *sigh*...I'm so much more mobile in the warm months. Cannot wait to go hiking, biking and camping. 

 
If I pretend like it's a class, if I actually schedule my life. Make to-do lists with time limits, I may actually start hacking away at that "I-want-to-do-that-someday" list.
  So many projects to get done! So many classes to teach! So much good life to live! Woohoo!

I've decided to get a degree in moi.  Welcome to your life, Kaje. It's going to be awesome. 
And cheap! Heh heh...
COURSE WORK:
Intermediate Yoga Courses (namaste Yoga DVDs pretty much rock my world)
{This is me, in high school *yipes!* sketching at a chateau in France & a happy box of canvases.}

Art courses--my art projects, commissions.

 

Music Courses -- Hooray for roommates that can teach guitar! Also I'm making goals to work with piano twice a week, and pick up some drumming beats.




{My life is colorful!}


Gardening Classes
Literature Classes
 
{When I was 14, I read this book cover to cover...time to go back and have a refresher course!}

I love annotating. I LOVE it. But I don't know if I can do it in these lovely volumes. 

May, is going to be rich, and full.

Sounds delicious! Have you seen yogatoday.com? It's my go-to for studio-quality classes that I can do at home; and they have one free class each week. I love it:) Good luck with your rich and lovely month!

Sounds Lovely! I totally want to follow in your fancy footsteps.

p.s. did you inherit the djembe? I bought that in Ghana when helping out Barbara.... then it disappeared. I credit you for its rescue. :)

@ Katie- Shoot, it'll come. You've got summer adventures around the corner!

@ Amy- I haven't seen that. I'll have to check it out! Thanks! :)

@ Liz- YES! I THOUGHT that was yours! Do you mind if I babysit it for a bit? Come for another visit and teach me how to play it. And, you know, then I can see you for more than 5 minutes. Blasted life! Ha ha! So busy and great :)
