Am I crazy? I suspect so.

I signed up for the final course in my Creative Writing Certificate (Romance Writing). I have also signed up for two (yes, two) courses toward a Medical Transcription Certificate. I'll be taking Medical Terminology and Medical Keyboarding. Yup, that's three online courses while working full time (45 hours/week), commuting 1.5 hours a day, and (maybe) doing NaNoWriMo in November.

I also signed up DH for Chivalrous Swordhandling as an anniversary gift. He seems open-minded about it and is willing to give it a try.

Maybe it is time to check in with my shrink since I am giving such strange gifts to someone who has shown absolutely no interest in role-playing.


I meant to comment on this post yesterday and forgot... *winces* I have to confess that you do seem a bit crazy committing to such an insane schedule. However, if all these things make you happy then it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. :-) I hope all the courses go well and you kick ass in November with NaNoWriMo.

BTW I think you've chosen an awesome anniversary present for DH! :-) If he keeps an open mind then I'm sure he'll have fun.
Perhaps I am crazy, but I'm also a little desperate. I'm trying to develop a backup plan in case of certain problems and a new career might be in order. I'm much less concerned with happiness than usual. At this point, I'd be just as happy not showing my emotions to the world. (Damn the pale complexion that shows everything.)

I have already done and enjoyed transcription (with no training) and I enjoy reading medical stuff, so medical transcription seems to be the way to go. The good news: one of the courses is a glorified typing course (increasing speed, etc.), so I don't expect it will phase me too much. Also, I have a leg up on the medical terminology course already because of my previous medical reading. The third course is Romance Writing (final course in the Creative Writing certificate and I only need to pass with 50%), so I can take it easy on that one if I need to.

As for the swordhandling...DH likes the idea. He said he would not have guessed that gift in a million years. If I didn't already have three courses, I'd consider joining him. I may still consider it.
