Back in October I said that I would be writing “soon” about the new direction that my education is taking me. “Soon” turned out to be nearly eight months, but I am back. 2020 was a hell of a year. I lost five friends of more than 20 years, three family members (two on the… Read More #613 – Is It Soon Yet?
I have written you only once since January 2019, and that was back in March of this year to discuss academic changes that I was in the process of making. There have been a LOT of other changes since post #610. This is going to be a hastily thrown together post that’s essentially a collection… Read More #612 – New Website, New Me
I haven’t written in some time, not because I didn’t want to, but because I couldn’t. The subject of this blog post was something I needed to tell family first before putting it out publicly, and now that certain people know, I can write. Regular readers of this blog know that for the past two… Read More #611 – Crash & Burn/Phoenix
Once again, I find myself in the unfortunate position of catching you up on a couple months’ worth of activities instead of writing a little bit as I go through the days and weeks. This entry will be shorter than my last one, since there’s really not that much to report on, outside of school.… Read More #605 – I Survived
So hey there, how are you doing? Been a while, hasn’t it? I have over two months to catch you up on, and that has been a hectic time. My apologies for disappearing, but there have been reasons. The last time I wrote to you, I was just getting ready to start the spring semester… Read More #604 – Been a While, Hasn’t It?
Today I finally got my grades for algebra. I pulled down an 85.76% for the semester, for a solid B. I’m very, very happy with this, given the struggles I had with the second half of the semester. Today has also been a very lazy day, and I’m going to enjoy it while I can,… Read More #593 – Finally
First, let’s get the bad luck out of the way, because it’s not that much fun to talk about. I had an algebra test last Thursday and I did abysmally on it. Like, might have dropped my average two whole grades bad. I still don’t have a score, but it will not be high. I… Read More #585 – Luck, Both Good and Bad
On Monday I wrote about being late for class because of construction along my usual route, and about how I was planning on leaving a little earlier than usual tonight to make up for it. Well, it’s been a cold, rainy day here in Austin and so I bumped up my departure time a few… Read More #581 – From One Extreme to the Other
And boy, was today interesting. Algebra class went off without a hitch, although it was a close thing – I used the last sheet of notebook paper I had taking my final notes, so once class was over I had to go buy another pack. While I was at Office Depot I perused laptops for… Read More #579 – May You Live In Interesting Times
Today’s big story is that I completed my registration for spring classes, and I have a monster of a semester ahead of me. I’m taking anatomy & physiology I, applied physics, composition I, and effective learning, a skills class that Austin Community College requires all students to take prior to the end of the first… Read More #575 – Registration and Revelation
