Week 1 is over!

Working full time and going to night school 3 evenings a week is not only torturous, but is alienating me from my family. The dog now thinks I'm an intruder! Fortunately, this is going to change...

Just as I suspected...the photography class was WAY TOO BASIC. I knew I was gong to have a problem when the instructor began pointing out the various components of the camera. I am absolutly certain boredom would have prompted me to do something drastic like stand up and scream, “It’s a freaking lens, for God’s sake! Holy crap...let's move on!” So, taking the advice of others, I dropped Ultra-Basic Photography (2 days a week) and enrolled in a class that will provide a lifetime benefit, Advanced College Writing. This ain't going to come easy, but it will certianly keep me from going nuts! Best of all, it's only once a week!

Life just keeps gettin’ better, eh?

And so it begins...

Spent the weekend in Providence, Rhode Island for my brother's wedding. Pretty neet town, Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design are there...never had the grades for either one :o)!
Anyway, Music Appreciation 100 started yesterday...nothing too tricky. In fact, it was quite an interesting class. I was not the oldest one there which made me feel a whole lot more comfortable! It's basically a brief history of music from the medieval (400 ad) to the contemporary (present). One of our assignments is to write 3 music reviews during the duration of the course...1 symphony, 1 chamber, and 1 jazz. 14 more weeks to go for the spring semester.
Photography starts this evening from 6-8:30 pm and am hoping it is not too basic. That's all for now.
