“Devise a list of 5 courses you would take to fix your life. It’s more fun to be in classes with friends, so include them into at least one class. Tag five people to complete this meme as well.”So if there was a school that offered classes that could help me "fix my life", these are the courses I would be looking for:
1) Home Improvement 10: Do-It-Yourself Home Improvement Seminar
It would be wonderful to be able to fix the things that break and fix-up everything else around the house all by myself. It is so hard to find good contractors and handymen to begin with and it costs so much once you have found someone. My Dad was always so handy around the house and I regret not spending more time with him learning the skills he possessed. I would drag my husband Robert to the class with me, as he is less than handy around the house.
2) Psychology 251: Advanced Seminar in Psychological Manipulation
I know this one sounds sinister, but I promise to use this knowledge for good and not evil! This information would help me unravel the psychological morass of my childhood, prevent family from manipulating me in the present and help me to reset my mind so that I can condition my mind positively. After all, when you act happy you soon will feel happy.
3) Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia Self-Help Semester-in-Residence
I have taken all the available classes and participate in the all groups offered by the CFIDS & Fibromyalgia Self Help group. At this point, what I feel I need is a in-residence program were I live, breath and sleep all the self-help principles I am trying to incorporate into my every day. It's one thing to try to make changes with a group online and another to do the same thing in-person in a residential group setting.
4) Personal Finance 40: Advanced Topics in Personal Finance
This is another class I'd take with my husband Robert. It's not that we don't have a handle on basic money management. Quite the contrary. But in this time of economic downturn, limited and tightening credit markets and the mortgage meltdown, it wouldn't hurt to learn more about personal economics. At the end of the day, it would be nice to feel ahead of the game and not just struggling to get by.
5) UCLA Extension Writer's Program
O.K., this one is actually a real program and I would love to attend classes with my friend and fellow blogger Cyndie of A Writer's Crazy Journey. I want to attend to learn more about the process of creative writing and my goal is to earn a Certificate in Creative Writing in Fiction. I want to start a second career as a writer because it is a work-at-home, fibro-friendly career. While it would be nice to write a national bestseller or a work of literature that stands the test of time, I'd be happy to just make a living writing Harlequin Romance novels!
Thanks to the blog Being Frugal for this blog meme idea. You can read the original post I found here:
