Well things are going to be hectic around here for a while!
I signed up for a pre-algebra class through my local community college. What was I thinking? It has been twenty-five years since I was in high school, ten since my last time in college and math was always my least favorite subject. Probably because it was the only one I ever really struggled in. I have decided to get over my fear of math.
It is an online class so hopefully I will have time to shoehorn it into my life. I did online classes before so I have some idea what I am getting into. That being said the format has changed some so I have been learning the new system I will be using. I also have lined up a local math tutor, did I mention I suck at math?
This should be fun.
So with some trepidation I am getting ready to be frustrated and humiliated. No really, I am hoping that I will get it this time. That is why I am taking this class. I am going to try to understand it. I have always avoided or done just enough to get through any math requirements necessary. I am tired of feeling like I’m no good at math. This time I am starting at the ground and going to try to build a good base of knowledge so that when I actually take Algebra next semester it won’t be Greek to me.
So between working, biking and trying to get the house and yard ready for fall/winter I have been busy. I’ll be around here reading and commenting, between sessions of trying to fry my brain. I do love to be busy, but it is a fine line though between being busy and being over my head. I do better when I keep busy other wise I have a habit of procrastinating. Give me too much time and I will lollygag about until the last minute. Give me a lot to do and I am more likely to get organized and get it done so that I have time to lollygag!
