First Day of School
Today was my first day back to school in 29 years. I was feeling old and crusty as I sat among beautiful and handsome young students in my Philosophy class today, but hey, it takes some of us longer than others to get the job done.
The professor was working really hard to scare kids out of his class talking about how intensive it will be; the amount of reading required every other day; the expected quality and quantity of the papers we will submit; his tough grading policies; and his complete intolerance of late work. One girl got up and left during his hour long spiel (the class lasts 3 hours two days a week).
But I'm not worried about Philosophy (maybe I should be??) I'm actually too scared about my Intermediate Algebra class to spend much of my anxiety on Philosophy at this point.
I'll keep you posted. Maybe some of you can help me with homework assignments and give me tips on keeping up with those young students who already know everything.
