It is a Big World. Why not try these things?
My friend just drove a car around the world. So there's that.
If I live according to my stated philosophy of looking at options and choosing to go toward what I might regret the least, I might take advantage of an opportunity that seems to be before me. I might go toward getting my Masters in Datascience. Hah!
I know it's preposterous now, but maybe that's how anything starts. With the imagining. So write it down. I've been having conversations with people. I've been getting vaguely excited about ideas and outcome. What have I said? I could maybe be a person with that degree all networked up with people thinking about these things and building things that could be useful.
Incidentally, I might be capable of cultivating my health and my wealth, while possibly being in a relationship with someone who could be integrated with that world.
It would be a lot of work. Yes indeed.
And lord knows I love a life of ease and have so many limitations. I guess I am writing this down so I can look at it outside myself and judge whether it is reasonable to take steps.
I could maybe.
As opposed to staying put in a job that is not so bad, doing stuff by the skin of my teeth and skirting expertise and becoming someone who can only talk about these ideas superficially, not have the clout or actual ability to implement or recommend, who will no doubt watch as someone else comes in to handle those realms, realms which I intuitively know will be vital in my professional world. Maybe.
Is it ego to want that? If so, is that necessarily bad? Is it out of balance with who I am really? Am I an artist, a mathematician, a programmer, or a philosopher? Or am I just barely a professional designer who can hardly get to work on time or complete the projects in my queue?
Posting now. Just this idea. Eeeeek!
