I love this thread and I just love you guys! So much inspiration and learning here. I can relate to so much that has been stated in this thread especially from mamarhu.
What I'm currently learning (the most) is:
1. Spanish(I've been *not quite fluent for far too many years (over 10) I'm really planning to become completely fluent in less than a year)
2. Parapsychology & Intuition (another thing I've been almost fluent in for several years)
3. Literacy Studies/Cognitive development
4. Guitar & Piano
6. Internet Marketing & Business
7. Publishing books
8. A ton about new *to me technology/computers/internet/software
9. Natural health/nutrition & Advanced Yogic practices (been studying these for several years)
10. Accountability (I'm not a natural)
11. Communicating & Compassion(something I am constantly learning more and more about)
12. Native American culture & languages (see 1. and 2.)
13. Cultural & Modern Dance
I need lots of things to keep me occupied and help me feel like I have a lot of options(read I'm not a natural at accountability) but I am just now accepting that this is the best way for me to learn, until I have the time and everything available to really, really delve into something and master it. Things I was discouraged from doing as a kid, I am now doing. A lot of these topics are topics I picked up on in my youth. Another thing I really want to get more into would be RV and bio-fuel conversion, horses and becoming a better swimmer. Chess is something I'm sure I'll dive into sometime soon again and I'd like to learn how to do some basic fixing/maintenance of bikes and cars too.
When I think of adults who know longer attempt to learn things unless they absolutely have to(and dread it) or because they feel left behind and old if they don't(like social media & other trends) it makes me quite sad for them. I guess a side effect or maybe a pre-requisite for unschooling is a parent who likes to learn as well.
