goin' back to school?

On a whim, I applied online to re-attend Glendale Community College for the Fall semester. I only intend to take one course (Intermediate Algebra).

Here's how it happened: A co-worker and I were talking about the new Apple Airport Express, and then started talking about employee vs. student discounts for Apple products, and then somehow got on the subject of taking a math class two nights a week. Don't ask.

Being the staedfast internet browser that I am, I easily (and rather quickly) found an Intermediate Algebra class for the fall semester on Mondays and Wednesdays at 7pm (which is convenient, as we get off work here at 6pm). When the co-worker said she could go for that, it was on, and I went and applied.

I racked up many college credits over the years, and had even seriously thought about going back full-time during my last period of unemployment, so the idea of going back to get at least an Associates degree of some sort has always plagued me.

Even if I don't end up actually completing a degree, at least I get to take fun math class, right? 'Cuz math is fun, right?

Anyway, that's just a glimpse into the spontaneity of my life... aren't you bursting with envy of my impulsiveness?
