dukes of hazzard the beginning
now that i haven't been with professor for a while, i can reflect on the experience from a different perspective.
i have always looked at subcultures of society with great interest. i enjoy social psychology--the way people think in groups. ever since high school as the girl from the other side of the tracks. thrown in with a bunch of rich white kids. i've sorta been an outsider.
and now i'm reassessing what's important to me. professor and academia was great fun. eccentric. i traveled to great places. did a lot of hiking. i bought arcteryx clothing and gear. that is super expensive. but sparing no expense for travel and travel gear is a part of his world. hence his current location climbing kilimanjaro so he can say he did when he returns to classes at the uw next fall. although he is not a braggart. i think mostly he competes with his stanford professor friend. of course they also value knowledge. and control of emotions. very intellectual. not emotional. learned.
and yet, i'd love to see that again. what a handsome man. wow. but overall a different world. admittedly it suit me well. much better than my previous bf. and much better than the life i had with my recovering crack addict exhusband. no way i'd EVER be involved in alanon or amway. please.
the good news is i am rich, beautiful, well educated, successful, healthy, sane, well travelled and much more. i have options galore. a bit frightening. i prefer to have a goal, purpose, direction and consistency in life. in many ways i've had that. in other ways not so much. and now as empty nester without significant other, i can run like the gate was left open. instead it is taking some time to adjust.
so what world shall i explore next?
