    Here's hoping for good sleeps tonight for us.
    That would be so nice being able to meet up.

    I'm noticing a pattern now. A night of poor sleep followed by a good sleep followed by a poor one again. Last night was 4 hrs sleep and so maybe tonight will be a good one?! I was busy all day so hopefully.

    Yes -that pattern happens to me, too! Are you having more vivid dreams? I am because of the pandemic and the unrest/protests.

    Yes, I am. Same. The odd nightmare and random bouts of anxiety as well.
    It did start up because of the pandemic, and it got worse during the protests/riots. Its everything going on, the general sense of upheaval and uncertainty, contributing.
    I'm trying to focus on positives, and to continue to do things which are important to me. I'm trying to keep up with exercise and eating well, as we know how important that is for managing stress. It's just an odd time and we are all trying our best.
    The Uni I've been taking classes through is officially staying strictly online through fall at least. On the one hand, it makes a lot of sense and I'm relieved. On the other, it was neat for me getting that uni experience in person. But the important thing is I'm actually doing it. Something I always wanted to do, completing a degree and continuing a more formal education.
    I'd often thought over the years, if things had been different and I'd have chosen differently, I could have advanced so far by now in schooling. It's something that has bothered me. I love studying and it comes naturally to me. I'm a voracious reader and learner by nature, so there is this part of me that regrets not directing it into a degree sooner. But I can't go back, and most of that was due to circumstances and struggles with my mental health. So there's no point beating myself up, though honestly at times I do.

    I think it's awesome that you are pursuing this goal! Good work.

    Frustrating about everything going online... I've always preferred in-person learning, too. For me, it seems to be more effective to have the teacher present, interactive, and immediately accessible. But they are probably making some important forward strides in the online learning formats now that mandatory distance-learning is so wide-spread. I've heard interesting bits of info from the moms I know. More minds on the problem...

    Hope you find improvement with your insomnia. I've suffered from it in the past, along with midnight dreads. It was awful. But it's been gone now for years and years. All I can think is that something was out of alignment in my life when I suffered from it. That was about 15 years ago, and I was just passing out of my mid-20s into real adulthood, reckoning with my lingering childish beliefs. It was a stressful time, but it passed for me and I think it will for you, too.

    Jibralta wrote everything I feel and yes!! I understand about the regrets with the degrees. I hope you find forgiveness -that you were doing your best at the time. My dear friend's daughter has wanted to do graduate work for years -she is in her late 20s and got her college degree a bit late. But the last couple of years she's been off track and kind of self-sabotaging and it's frustrating for me to watch especially since part of it has to do with really bad choices in men to the point where she is now being sued by one -frivolous but still. But I won't say anything to her -it won't help. At all. She has to come to the decision and motivation herself.

    I'm glad you're doing this and yes I totally agree with Jibralta about the downsides of virtual learning. My son starts a not inexpensive virtual minecraft camp today -at least it's technology so it lends itself more to virtual but I've seen the downsides in his school online learning and now camp.

    Good luck!!

    That's a good point about strides being made with online learning during this time. That's a positive thing. Opening up new avenues for people to learn, which is always a good thing.

    Minecraft camp...the video game? If so, that's really cool! My husband's nephew is obsessed with Minecraft. He would love a camp like that!

    Well so far it was a huge disappointment because the download didn't function -but they're going to try to work with us- my son loves Minecraft too!!
