I was becoming dumb. No, really.
It took me 2 years, but I started thinking that my contributions to intelligent conversations weren’t so intelligent. I didn’t have anything to add, and that’s not a great feeling to have. It occurred to me that this only started after I graduated college. I have a feeling that it is mostly because I was forced to use my brain, think things through and BE intelligent.
So, I had eventually had enough. Both for myself and the great fear that the Engineer would leave me because I had gotten too stupid. I wouldn’t blame him.
I had been wanting to go back to school for some sort of technology for a while, but once I had that epiphany, I was registered within two weeks. TWO WEEKS. I wasn’t playing around.
Have I noticed a difference? Ask everyone around me. I’m back to my semi-smart college self. :)
