    School, a new chapter

    Well yesterday I went to the local Tech school. Did the beginning paperwork for starting classes this summer. Tomorrow I go for some sort of test, to see if I need refreshed in math, english and writing. Been taking the online pretest. It would appear math has changed a bunch since the early 80's. Haven't gotten to the other stuff yet.

    Here is the pretest in case you want to play along

    as long as 1 +1 still equals 3, I could deal with the math.

    Just looked at the math one

    I went to college for mechanical engineering and it lasted until I realized you needed to know math to be one

    I was pretty good at math when in school... but when the kids brought home Texas algebra books in the late 90s, I couldn't follow how they were teaching them to get where they needed to go. I could get the answer, but not the way they did. Very frustrating.

    All loans are now under the obama administration as government loans. So you may want to check them out. I can do 2+2 be 4 math was never my strong point.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
