From the College Front

Today I began my winter term of college, and I'll be in classes Monday-Thursday. Which means update to the site may be sporadic or infrequent. Once I get settled into my routine at school I'll probably be back to daily posts. Until then, make sure to stop by every now and then, you may find I've posted something at 1:00 a.m.

I'm 36, and getting a college degree has been a goal of mine for years. I've procrastinated over the last 12 years, you know, paving a road to hell with my good intentions. So, it's a little strange at college (it's a community college) for me as a good 90% of my classmates are much younger. For most of them, the material is fresh, but for me...well, the last time I took a math class was 1985. So I have to learn math all over again, and it's weird, because what I'm seeing looks familiar, but I cannot quite remember how to solve the problem. Luckily it's a small class, maybe 20 students, and the instructor seems to genuinely enjoy teaching adults basic math.

More updates as time permits...Thanks in advance for your patience. I'm off to do some homework.
