This is the type of thing that I thrive in. I simply enjoy lectures, reading, and putting information to practical use. I probably could have been a professional student if I hadn't had to get out and actually get a job. Things that I would have liked to continue to study would have been art history, English literature, French, German, anatomy, and all aspects of navigation and piloting. An explosion of neurons is taking place as I rev up to work on this course. It will run for 11 weeks. And I am supposed to take another one on engine maintenance starting next week. I feel as if I am back in graduate school.
So tonight I got home after 10 PM. I missed my home group meeting and won't make that for another 10 weeks. That is a down side to my continued education as a mariner. All I know is that I have a passion for learning as much as I can. I will get back to home group as soon as I can. In the meantime, I will be plotting a course to get from point A to point B.
It is kind of like Al-Anon which is about the journey and not the destination, with lots of way points thrown in. And my job is to avoid the problems as I navigate so that I can arrive safely. I can tell that this is going to be a lot of fun and a good challenge.
