I've Just Done Something Truly Mad
Sometimes I can surprise even myself with the mad things that I do. And today, I think I may have exceeded even my ability to do something mad that I may live to regret it.
I am two modules short of my second degree; I'm doing one of those at the moment, and I have to admit while I am enjoying it, it really isn't taxing me a great deal. I think this is because it is interesting, but at a much lower level than the modules that I have been studying over the last few years.
So what is it that I have done? No, I haven't signed up for the last module for the degree. I've done something even more stupid that that. I've signed up for a course that will get me on the path to a third degree. Yes, I know that it is mad, but one of the things that has happened to me over the last five years or so is that I have become addicted to studying. It has to be a lot better for me than becoming an alcoholic, I am trying hard to shake my tobacco addiction, and at no time in my life have I ever felt the need to try hard drugs.
If I'm going to get addicted to anything, I am sure that being addicted to education is safer than most things. And what will the new degree be in? Psychology. Yes, there is a certain irony in it.
