I Can’t Honey, I Have Homework


I haven’t uttered those words in a very long time…since 2007 to be exact.

That’s the last time I gave large amounts of money to a university in order to do lots of work and eventually (after giving even more money) getting a piece of paper with my name on it.

(The first time was when many of you were in diapers.)

Don’t get me wrong. The problem is that I LOVE school. So much that I’ve been researching some options and trying to figure out how to work it into my crazy life.

But for now, I’ve discovered Coursera, where I (and you) can take college-level classes…FOR FREE!

Because I’m a bookworm and have loved the stuff since I was a kid, I’ve enrolled in a 10-week class on Greek and Roman Mythology.

Yeah, I just said a 10-week class.

And in order to pull this one off, I’m going to have to either prioritize better or give up a few things.

Here’s my list so far:

  • Mopping – actually this one’s too easy because I HATE to mop.
  • Ironing – another no-brainer, because I don’t iron unless I have to. (But if I did, I’d gladly give it up.)
  • Grooming – or perhaps not, because I am obsessive about hygiene. However, I could probably give up shaving my legs for 10 weeks.
  • Sex – uh, no.
  • Pinterest – I’d sooner give up sex. :-)
  • All those FB games that people keep inviting me to play – except Words with Friends (my Mom actually  calls me to tell me it’s my turn. )

What do you think?

How do you find extra time when you need it?
