So I like Doctor Who, science fiction in general, fantasy too, Oz, Wonderland, theatre, sewing, crafting, creating anything with my hands, my boyfriend, and at least a million other things. There's no way I can describe myself with a blog. But I can certainly express myself. I like to rant. I like to put my rants here. (Some) Fandoms: Doctor Who, Torchwood, Sanctuary, Castle, Firefly, Serenity, Tin Man, Alice (SyFy), Chuck, old school Nickelodeon and Disney, The Hunger Games, Star Trek: TNG etc.

The big list post.

 

Uncollege sounds like what I’ve been doing since I got my first public library card.

I don’t remember exactly what I learned in K-12. But I do remember when ‘Atlantis: The Lost Empire’ inspired me to research the actual Atlantis legends. I remember being obsessed with drawing and reading every book I could on it. I remember that every time I was fascinated with a subject I would read up as much on it as I could. Queen Elizabeth I, Anastasia, coelacanths- anything I was interested in I would learn about in my own time. By high school I could not do that as much. Homework assignments, massive tests, presentations. College is even worse. Between class and my job and sleep (unlike some of my peers I need at least 7 hours of sleep to function, preferably closer to 9) and a healthy social life, I think I read one book for fun. I tried, but time just got away from me…

I’m going to continue with college until I graduate or the right opportunity comes along, whichever comes first. In the meantime, I’m going to continue with my re-enrollment in my favorite school of higher learning. I have a booth at a local con to prepare for. I have a feeling that experience will teach me quite a lot (if not more) that I will use in the long run than at least one class I take this semester.
