It's been a while...

I got a great present just in time for my 1st week of school, a nasty allergy/sinus thing.  It really shut me down last week. I would wish that on no one. 

I'm officially back in school as of last Monday.  I have Introductory Algebra on Mondays and Wednesdays and Meteorology on Tuesdays.  Classes went well for the first week. Howard Community College has made it very convenient for me to be able to get "caught up" on my maths and sciences, while still maintaining a job and a little bit of a social life.   I was able to jump ahead on the Algebra because of all the practice I did over the summertime.  Meteorology 111 is basically meteorology with no math or science attached, which should be interesting but has the potential to be dreadfully boring.  We shall see.  My goal is to get A's in both classes. There's no reason I can't do that.  I may even try to get far enough in the Algebra class to test out of the next level, but I don't want to get ahead of myself.  I'll just keep plowing through material until I get stuck.   I'm really excited to share some of the stuff I'm learning about the weather, so I'm going to try and throw random weather facts up here that I think you may find interesting.    Today's weather fact:

Without greenhouse gasses such as water vapor and carbon dioxide in our atmosphere, the average temperature on Earth would be a chilly 0 degrees F instead of the balmy 60 degrees we are used too.  BRRRR.

  1. The real question is, are you trying to fit in with the 18 year olds in your classes? I can see 90% of your classmates hitting you up to buy them beer...
