Interesting how a GED was enough to get by years ago. I got one. Working fast food, maid service, cashier, sewing factory jobs, valet, etc. Opportunities ran out so I attended college expecting to beat the odds. Even so, higher education hasn’t increased my potential to get hired yet; possibly a hindrance in some cases.
This is rural North America where country living is casual. Travel is simple but stress soars when funds are low. Eventually, I earned computer science degrees. Job searches was nightmarish for many techies. Computer geeks are a dime-a-dozen around here. So entrepreneurial agendas was my masters degree plan. In the real world, I failed miserably at it. Then I attempted a doctorate in education to become an eLearning professor and earned the eLearning education specialist instead (EdS) an advanced terminal degree.
Some favorite ways to pass the time is knitting, crochet, reading, writing, or simply doing nothing at all. This journal involves ways I’ve found to pamper and entertain myself. For instance, putting tennis balls in a sock for a self massage… aroma therapy soothes the soul, sound therapies eases pain. Distraction works.
Watching the cats play is an amusing distraction. Talking to animal friends is fascinating to me. Cats may even try to talk but generally don’t argue about much. They listen very well. So far, I’ve not had any serendipity moments to use that EdS.
