Those of you who know me, know when I don’t have something to do, or something to learn I start to go stir crazy. I was reading one of those advice columns (one of my many guilty pleasures) and the columnist recommended that the person take some classes. Then she recommended two different places where you can get free classes from top notch schools. So I looked into it.

I am now taking a class called Artificial Intelligence Planning from the University of Edinburg through the website Coursera.org. It is a 7 week on-line class in something I have always been interested in. I am signed up to start a 12 week course on Feb 4, called introduction to Computer Science and Programming from MITx and starting March 4th I start a class called Social Network Analysis from University of Michigan through courser.org. I wish I had known about these classes earlier I would have been taking classes all along.

I love learning. I cannot imagine living a life where I don’t learn something every day. I am so lucky to have this opportunity, I have time – not that I wanted to have the time, but I would have made it – and I have the ability so I am going to take advantage of it. There is a class on quantum physics that I would really like to take but I need to brush up on some of the math aspects before I take it. I don’t want to get in there and be completely lost. I don’t want to take some ones spot that can do it better. But I will be taking it someday.

I have included the links to the websites below.  I hope you at least look at them. Well I have to get to work . . . 🙂

Happy thoughts for a happy day!
