  1. I use to tutor math. Depends on what it is I suppose. I can't stand quadratic equations. I know how to do them, just detest them is all. I prefer trig. Good luck, I know how hard it is to study when you don't like the subject. I am actually thinking of taking some courses. Lily you have inspired me.

    Hello

    Welcome, R0st3r! I third what they said. Glad you found the Wheel of Time books and our beloved DM.
  3. Welcome, Kevala. The social groups are a lot of fun. Here you can be an Aiel, a darkfriend, a wolf, an Aes Sedai, and the list goes on. It might help you glean some insight for your book too. Hope to see you there.
  4. Especially when it is so beneficial to the learning process. People complain about the youth of today not being able to think and function as well as previous generations I think not having art and music is part of that issue. The other of course is video games and the lack of parental involvement. It is all tied into what is wrong with our public education system. Just as a disclaimer: I did home educate my boys. They are both very functional, intelligent men who have awesome careers. Both are in positions where a bachelors degree was required for employment and neither of them has one. One even supervises people with master's degrees. It isn't because they are super smart, it is because they have critical thinking skills that aren't taught and art and music help develop those skills. They are a gateway for expression which leads to critical thinking.
  5. I think that if there isn't sentient life out there, then it is an awful waste of space. Art benefits society by opening the doors of creative thought and imagination. Which leads to invention and improving one's life. I am not an artist either, but I can appreciate it's purpose in fulfilling a need to be creative.
  6. I love tin foil dinners. I do mine with ground beef due to dietary restrictions. I also love Dutch oven cooking over a hot coal. We haven’t done much camping since the boys got married and moved out. I was hoping to go camping this fall, but our business is interfering with the plans. Too many other trips. I love camping. The more primitive the better for me. Of course, I say that and am reminded I can't sleep on the ground anymore. I can't lay flat, so I have no clue what I will do when we do get to go camping. Enjoy your hiking trip. Yes, when backpacking you can't carry much and you have to carry out the trash too. So, limits what you can take.
  7. Congratulations to both of you. Bondings are fun. *grabs some hot cocoa and a hot dog* This is an awesome way to celebrate too.
  8. My daughter lives in Seattle. She hates the heat in Arizona. She is the only kiddo living out of state. The other 2 live 6 miles and 30 miles from me. I love forests.
  9. I keep a tab open too sometimes. I have left it open overnight before. *giggle* My office is after all in my house.
  10. You can do it. Just take it one day at a time. It is like eating a whole elephant. You do it one bite at a time.
  11. Yes!!! You just had to get back in the groove of things is all.
  12. Congratulations! The uniform suits you. Oh, noodle swords!! Ladria and I (A Green Aes Sedai) got kicked out of a toy store once playing with those. We happen to be with a sister of the Brown Ajah too. Somehow only us Green Sisters got the actual kicking out. *giggle* Sadly neither of them are still here at the site. So, have fun with those and no getting kicked out of toy stores.
  13. Try listening to some calming music. Like a movie score you like. When I need to get in the zone for work I listen to the Braveheart soundtrack. Works like a charm. Also, cut yourself some slack. It has been a very long time since you took a test. Might have just been that.
  14. I think the pressure might make you nervous so you get a lower grade. Just a thought.
