College has been tough on my broken body this first week. If you’ve been following my twitter page, you know that I’ve got a bunch of homework from my Pre-calc algebra class (my night class). Little bit of Spanish, little bit of English, no Biology homework yet.
I’m enjoying my classes, all of them, but most especially my Biology class. The prof is great, and the subject of course is the reason I’m there, so it’s inherently interesting to me. He’s spending a great deal of time and effort on the Scientific Method, which rocks. You simply can’t do Science without it.
By request of Steve Story, Moderator Emeritus at AtBC, I’m sort of pseudoblogging my Bio class at After the Bar Closes. Please feel free to read and/or contribute there. It’s a great place, full of Scientists, Science educators, and people just interested in Science. Mostly, its raison d’etre is for mocking creationism and the dishonest purveyors of the Intelligent Design Creationism Hoax, so although you’ll find some heavy duty science there in places, you’ll also find a lot of mockery that might be described as “puerile”. It’s sort of to be expected, given the target.
For English class, I have a great guy for a teacher. Very gregarious, very boisterous, and not afraid to be fun and/or cheesy. I like that in a teacher, as well.
I have a very young lady for PreCalc Algebra. She nice, and she’s friendly, but seems just a little nervous or timid or something, like she could really use a drink before class. Is is appropriate for a student to suggest such a thing? If so, how would one go about that without implying that she have a drink with me? My wife would probably be a little sour on such an idea, so I definitely don’t want to give that impression. I kinda like sleeping indoors, I’ve grown accustomed to it, and would rather not find myself on the porch.
My Spanish class is a bit livelier – sometimes. The teacher does a lot to get everyone involved and keep it light, but in a class made up of kids, well, sometimes they’re just introverted. It’s been interesting to see the collective mood swing back and forth within each class period.
Anyway, I’ll try to blog a little more often about my classes, but right now I have a ton of homework and my first quiz (precalc) is Monday.
