Use your lives

This is a little bit creepy, but I love the message it’s preaching. Courtesy of the occasionally deep, typically crass SMBC.

Let’s see. Discount high school, that was a lifetime of general academic stuff and a bit of social skills.

Science: 4 years of degree, 3 years of research = 7 years. Tick!

Science communication: 2 years. Maybe 3 if you add up the miscellaneous stuff.

Bodyboarding: 8 years (as last two don’t count). Errr, yeah, not so much mastered on this one.

Rock climbing: 1 year.

Photography: 4 years. But nowhere near consistently enough, so I’m halving that to two.

And that’s not even counting all the other random little things I do or want to do. Lots of lives left to explore.

What life have you spent most of your time in, and what is your next one going to be?

    Travelling, reading, gardening, hiking, writing, campaigning, healing, cooking, supporting, laughing, photographing, nurturing, loving…to name a few of the things to come in the foreseeable future. Thank you for a stimulating post.
