Being chronically ill I spend a lot of time in bed or resting on the sofa. If you are anything like me you have also accomplished two things through rest: One, found the end of the internet, and two, watched more Netflix then you ever thought possible.
There are moments during my day when I feel as if I am wasting my time just watching tv. Granted, there are days that I am doing my best just to focus on a show, but other days I know I could push myself to do a bit more. So, I started brain storming ways I could use this time to expand my horizons beyond the four walls of my home. So I started researching things I could reasonably do from home on a (very small) budget.
I first compiled a list of sites that offer free books so I could spend more time reading with no extra cost to me, unless I needed to print the book out for easier viewing. Still a huge bargain on my part (and no late fees from the library).
I then thought about taking a class as I have always loved to learn. But, at this time in my life I am not able to consistently attend a class in a college setting. So, I started searching for on-line classes and found that there are TONS of free college and continuing education classes available at our fingertips. Below is a list of places that offer free classes to anyone willing to sign-up.
