First off, I’m sure a lot of people who read this blog know already (because they know Me…) but for those who don’t know: I am a member of Mensa. An easy description is that it is one of the few places in the United States where the stupid aren’t considered innately superior to the smart.
But to the point: a few years ago I bought a membership that covered a few years. Either next year or the year after that membership will end, and I’ll want to make a decision on whether to do a lifetime membership or to just plain quit.
Cost shouldn’t be an issue, as I got plenty of credit and possible plenty of $$$ when the time comes. I’m sure I could even get some financial aid from the person I’m with at the moment.
But here’s the question: If I were to move out, would I still want to be part of Mensa?
That’s it. While my friend is a lifetime member of Mensa, I’m going at it with the possibility of me living by myself when the time for decision comes. One never knows, after all.
Just so you know, I’m just thinking at the moment. Nothing completed, but the thoughts are there.
