dusty in here!

Reshuffling of priorities the last year or so. When's the last time I posted here?! i didn't even look!

Ok well I'm still in school and set to gradumate in the fall of '10. I'll miss my goal of doing this in exactly two years by three terms, but so what... it'll be done.

My teachers and professors have all been mostly awesome so far, except for one, and we won't go there. Note to adjunct community college teachers everywhere- If you spent the majority of your career teaching primary school and have gone to work in a community college, please adjust your teaching style. NOBODY wants to relive their 3rd grade year. That's right- NOBODY. And no one wants a new unreasonable rule after unreasonable rule surprising them and piling up on them at every class meeting.

Smart half will be done the same term. He'll have a degree in accounting.


I have all of my math requirements done. I still can't say I ever got an A in a math class, but I got some Bs. And I was happy to have the Bs, for sure. Because I never got a B in math, either...

I have one more class each in writing, communications and business. I'm full-on science classes til I am finished (10 more classes of them). I am not a scientific person. I often wonder what the hell I was thinking when I chose my degree program. Not that I don't enjoy science, because I really do dig all the ologies I've encountered... I'm just not good at the whole lab report thing and don't always get the point in class. I'm almost completely "right-brain" and this "left-brain" stuff involves learning a new thinking thing. I have high Bs so far in these classes this term and am bringing those grades up with more efficient studying methods. (bizarre to even have those words come out of my head, actually).

My mad skillz lie in words, and so I'm lucky enough that I am now working in the tutoring center as a writing tutor.
