I work 40 hours a week, shift work. I'm currently two years into a three year Bachelor of Theology degree, and my boss has been nagging me to pick up post grad papers to work towards my Masters - which I want. I also want to travel next year, or the year after.
How can I do all this?
Well, I'm cheeky and do a lot of night shifts so I can sit on my backside for hours without being bothered....
But generally, its because I don't have a husband or children to run around after. If I marry, I doubt I'll be able to faff about the way I am now. Everything I'm doing is currently just filler to keep my mind occupied without sulking about the "oh my gosh, I'm 31 and still single! My life is over!" mantra.
I suppose it also helps my calendar that I don't have much of a social life [on account of that horrible shift work].
