Went back to school

Today was my first day. The classes were fun. Sort of.

I sort of dread the one class because it's going to be about arguing effectively and rules of logic, which isn't dreadful at all, but we're going to be making arguments in class and I expect it has the potential to include a fair amount of cringe-worthy college-age passion about "causes." The last thing I want to do is get in an argument with idealists who just graduated from high school. (Does this count as a "don't commit this to the internet" sort of sentiment?) I do want the logic class though.

And Algebra. The first Math class I've taken in over 25 years. So far I remember the material once it's shown, but before that the problems are entirely opaque and I couldn't even guess where to start. The on-line homework is new and confusing. On the one hand the way each step is shown is wonderfully helpful. On the other hand, I'm not sure if I exit if the problems that are not completed are counted as irrevocably wrong.

And I'm the only student in my Earth and Planetary Sciences lab that is an EPS major.

Tomorrow I've got the EPS intro lecture class that goes with the lab, and Greek Mythology.

And now it's way past my bedtime. ;-)
