what ARE we thinking ???

13 Apr

Whoever said that Uni is a good idea for a “50something” ??? I mean really, who am I kidding ??

I love the idea of learning, and I love the idea of being a student…. sitting here in a hotel room with a glass of wine, cold chicken and textbooks …. but even more than that I love the idea of writing (and if that means essays …. then so be it) … BUT why go to these lengths I ask myself, as I balance 3 blogs and 3 FB pages ….isn’t that enough ‘writing’ for one person ?

At the end of the journey (IF I work in the field)  I will command approximately half of what I get paid now …so there is no economic sense whatsoever….BUT the satisfaction of finishing it can’t be measured in dollars (I keep telling  myself).

Onward and upward the end is (almost) in sight.end in sight

Meanwhile let me share a little trivia that caught my eye today ….

No doubt,many of you subscribe (or have been subscribed to)  numerous online shopping list serves, you know the ones … cudo, living social, catch of the day etc etc etc … well it never ceases to amaze me the array of “BARGAINS” on offer that we never knew we needed.

Mostly I just hit that good old delete button … but the title  line of this one made me laugh…. what WERE they thinking ?? It read :

Colonic Hydrotherapy Treatment | Mouth-Watering Lebanese Feast


 I mean ….SERIOUSLY ???
