Since my partner and I split up, and my kids are spending a couple of nights a week at their father's house, I have some free time on my hands, and I am trying to use it wisely.
Something I've been enjoying a lot lately is researching and learning - about all kinds of things. I pour over the news, blogs, and all kinds of other things whenever I have the chance.
One of the things I've been trying to learn more about is science - particularly science and the universe. It's just one of those subjects that is so incredibly vast, and I find it almost impossible to even begin comprehending the size of our galaxy and the huge distances between our planet and our neighbors. Looking at pictures and reading descriptions helps a bit - and it's definitely an interesting subject!
I like that I'm thirsty for knowledge again. I feel like it's been too long since I really challenged myself to step outside of my little box and do something new!
