In case it wasn't obvious...

For those who had not figured it out yet by the lack of entries here, college plans are on indefinite hold. Nothing has gone according to plan since leaving WY... and although things are picking up on my Zazzle and Squidoo ventures (please see Art on the Edge for details), I simply cannot afford higher education right now.
Because of my need to move out of the housemate's home, combined with inability to find work here in central FL, I had to take an assignment out of town...again.
It is not what I wanted.
However I am excited about it and think it may be a very enjoyable interlude.
Once I complete my contract, I would ideally like to spend a few months in either the UL or Ireland for old times sake.

I have really questioned whether a degree is necessary, after all.
I can still do self-guided study, and am still looking at the possibility of attending New College in Sarasota at some future date.

Struggling with this ADHD has never been easy. By the time I am certain I know what I want to do, I no longer really want to do it. It's like the effort of planning it took the passion for it out of me. I got much further in the process this time, and I believe that if real life hadn't dictated otherwise (necessity for work), I would be taking at least a few classes by now.

Who knows? Maybe next year...
I'll keep you apprised.

Good luck finding a job and with your career. I will be waiting to find out what happens next. I agree, there are many ways to learn.

I think I may have adhd. My daughter has it, and I always knew there was more to my problems then just social anxiety, because I make one decision, then within an hour, I change my mind completely. One day I have to finish school, then the next, I'm like, oh well, may be next semester I will finish. omosghh, it drives me crazy. Anyway, I hope you find your true calling in this life, which I'm sure eventually you will.

I just ran across a comment of yours on my blog and wondered if you are still planning a trip to India. Also, did you see the great state dinner with guest of honor Prime Minister Singh? It was so great to see India in the news. Anyway, I was curious. Keep us posted on your news, and let me know about your trip too. I once lived in India. It is a wonderful and unique country.

I want to hear about your India journey. Are you going to post photos or a blog? I am interested because I used to live there.
