When I get back from vacation, I’ll be sitting with a couple of school advisors to see if there’s a program locally that fits what I want to do. If I have to take a lot of classes that aren’t interesting or what I feel is pertinent, then I’m not going to bother. I don’t want to waste time or money. I am not after the degree, I’m after the education. And I want to learn what I want to learn. I’m at the age and stage in my life that I know what my goals are and if a degree program doesn’t get me there, that’s fine. I have never performed well when being forced to learn/do things that feel like a waste of time.
In the mean time, I picked up a book on weather. It’s full of great photos and illustrations and covers all the basics in terminology and concepts. From there, I want to move on to basic weather forecasting. I’m enjoying learning more about weather patterns and how to better read the data. From there, I will probably look into space weather.
From Graphic Design to Meteorology, I’m really in a place to learn. Filling my head with lots of new thoughts is what is keeping me sane these days. For relative values of sanity, I guess.
And now…off to work.
