What do I do now?

Tomorrow begins real life as a woman of leisure. The past three weeks were just a preamble filled with appointments, sidework, ebaying, moving/organizing, etc. But tomorrow?

Dental appointment at 9am then I'm free until Tuesday night's swim class.

So what do I want to do with all of this Free Time? The obvious answer is travel but I'm older and dislike traveling alone. I'd rather travel with my boyfriend but he's busy being employed and paying taxes.

What I need is a project - something new that I can practice at home (unlike swimming which is only fun if you have a pool). I've considered art class but have no aptitude and prefer something I can work on at home. Piano is an old standby as is cooking. I can't dance but lack rhythm and attempting it now scares me.

I want to learn something challenging, which is why I want to be placed in accounting class. I want something challenging which will force me to use often ignored parts of my brain.

I feel like this is my Big Chance to try something new while I'm financially secure, reasonably young and healthy. I don't want to squander my time off sleeping late and listening to books on mp3.

What would you do?
