I've been thinking very hard about going back to school and finishing my degree. I'm tired of being stuck in dead-end jobs that I hate, tired of trying to figure out if I can afford going to the dentist or the doctor, tired of feeling like I'm stretched too thin to help friends and family if they need it.

Admittedly, becoming a starving college student for a couple years doesn't strike me as a great way to end that feeling. "If I can only survive this acid bath for two years, I will be able to attend to the annoying rash that has plagued me."

My other difficulty with the idea is that I don't have a real passion at the moment - a CS degree with a focus in systems administration or DBA is a fantastic way to get into a job that I might not particularly like any more than what I'm doing now, but with a bigger paycheck. On the other hand, money can't buy happiness, but it helps to let you choose your misery. *shrug*

I don't know. I'm fucking beat on my current situation, but the roads out seem awfully steep, rocky, and dense with cowpats.

In other news, rung 8 on the introductory exercise ladder this morning went well, and I'm down 30 pounds from start weight. I think when I get to the lifetime ladder in 7 weeks, I will start The One Hundred Push Up Challenge. Which means that 13 weeks from now, I should be able to do 100 push ups in a row without stopping. Check back with me on April 1.
