    Tomorrow it starts

    Well I guess you remember me talking about going back to school. Well I did it. Start tomorrow at 8 am. Electrical Technology will be the degree/ program. Of course I have to do the English and electives courses as well. Going to knock out most of the electives and general stuff as soon as I can, in case I change my mind and go a different direction. When I picked my books up, I realized that this is going to be a different world. I wasn't real happy with the reader, Maus, until I looked in to it farther.

    Here are my books to keep the sheriff happy.

    Way to go Steve! Have fun, study hard, and get good grades.

    I think that if I had it to do all over again, I can't even imagine how much more focused I'd be now versus then...

    Way to go, Steve. I can't imagine myself going back to school. I'd probably be sent to the Dean's office the first week of school for backtalking the teachers and making jokes in class.

    Steve, I read Maus I years ago. It is a challenging and fascinating story... never did get a copy of Maus II to read. I think they sell it now as one volume.

    best wishes for school, you'll do great.
    I remember when I went back for my MSc years ago -- I'd only been out of my BA for about 3 years, but it made a huge difference. Returning students are generally well focussed on learning, as opposed to the "regular" students, and tend to do well.
    There's usually more than one way to do it...
