Thanks, Mandien. I started college in my 30's and got my AA. Now, I'm in my 50's but I don't care. I want to have my degree and I will. I love learning. I may feel differently next semester when I'm taking statistics, though. lol

I found statistics easier then algebra.

That's good to know, Ryrin. I think my brain is more like yours than his, being that we both chose the same career field. At least I hope so.

I was thinking that very same thing!

I moved this thread over because a new semester started and I'm so excited. I signed up for Abnormal Psychology because I had previously taken a class by this professor and I really enjoyed it. I thought it was going to be about REALLY abnormal things like sociopaths and serial killers. lol Turns out, it's about the things I work with on a daily basis - ADHD, Bipolar disorder, Autism, etc. I'm so excited for this class!

I loved that class, Lily.

 

If you want to learn about serial killers/sociopaths you'll find that in Criminal Justice. I enjoyed CJ classes.

I didn't particularly want to learn about those things. I think it would be interesting, but what I am learning has more real life application for me.

That's always good, though sometimes dangerous as I find, you learn more and realize that you done things wrong and get more work *nods*

I'm enjoying Abnormal Psych a lot. A couple of weeks ago, I just didn't have time to read 3 chapters in the week we were given to do so, so I tried to wing it. I failed the test. That was a first for me, or at least I don't remember ever failing a test before. This week I got an A-. Much better. It's looking like I have a B average so far. I'll be really happy with a B from the class. Of course, I'd prefer an A, so I'm shooting for that.

Now, I'm halfway through Research Methods. Not a fun class but required for my major. I'm looking forward to an interesting class again. Maybe in the Fall.

An interesting thing happened towards the end of Research Methods.  My life had so much going on, not the least of which was possible homelessness, that I emailed my professor and said that I couldn't finish the paper, and was turning in what I had done so far. I just couldn't focus my mind on writing a paper, although I did take the final. I ended up with a B- in the class, which I will happily take.

Hey, take whatever you can get. In about a year and 1/2 I will probably be going to college, so stick in there.

Awesome. When I was in graduate school I asked for an extra week to finish a paper as my mother was dying of cancer (out of state.) I didn’t get it. The professor said “we all have things going on.” He was a social work professor.

True. My son will be 30 next month and I still remember it.

My next class starts Monday, but I can get a jump start this weekend if I want. It's called Sensation and Perception and sounds really boring. At least there is no research paper this time. I don't have time for one of those right now. I'm moving in 10 days and still have a lot to pack.
