One week down

Last week marked the beginning of the spring semester for me. I dropped a class and picked up College Algebra. This is a class I have to take for my major. I was always good in math in grade school and high school. Even after high school when I went to a four year college to party, I did well. When I took College Algebra after high school, it was 5 days a week. I may have attended 3 of the 5 days a week and still managed to get a B. When I started going back to school, I transferred that class as an elective because someday I will have to take Finite math also. I didn't want to just jump into that.

(This problem is easy in comparision to some that were given on the first night.)


So here I am, ten years later taking the class again. I'm not sure if I underestimated the class or if I am underestimating myself or what is going on but I'm scared shitless. The first night was a review, as in not even the first chapter. At first when the teacher wrote down the problems, I was thinking good god what am I getting myself into. Then, it started to come back to me.



This class might take some extra work but I'm going to try my hardest to stay positive. You see, I would really like to hold onto my 4.0 as long as I can. My school does offer tutoring for this class but I would have to drive to the main campus, lord only knows when, to get it.



Besides College Algebra, I am taking Intro to Business, which doesn't seem too bad so far and Strategies for Success. SFS is basically a class to help do better in all my other classes. The teacher said there are no tests and we will have time in class to do all our work. This is also the class I'm getting paid to take notes in.



So here's to staying positive!

I remember taking a calculus class in college, and failing miserably. That prompted me to change majors ...

I'm OK at most math but I hate it! I ended up majoring in Fine Arts :)

I only had to take 2 math classes in college and I'm VERY thankful for that. It's my worst subject so I'm wishing you TONS of good luck in this class!
