I am a little late, of course, but I just received a notification of a post, so I drifted in with it. A few years ago, when I had Algebra and Statistical Math, people on this forum helped me to do decently with my grades, since I am math challenged.
I have moved on to a major university in my area & graduated with a BFA in Creative Writing on Dec. 15, 2013. It seemed like I was worn out from so much college. I had the math problems when i got my Associate in Arts degree. I just wanted to thank everyone again. My last post was nothing to do with math & I hope it was deleted, as it was crazy. I think we have to just grow up all over again even if we're adults.
Happy New Year and tomorrow is my birthday. I am on facebook if anyone here is there. Of course don't look under "survival."
By the way, last week my heat pump decided to stop. I had no idea they were so expensive. I have one quote of over 4,000 for a new one and 2700 for just to repair the thing. My son and i are melting. I don't like shelling out that kind of money on something that sits outside and rusts. I will remember that the next time i buy something I don't need.
It reminds me of when past hurricanes when through and we waited for the power to bring back cool air. The thermomether reads 85 in the house. I have 5 ceiling fans and they are all blowing hot air. No pun intended.
Is 4,000 too much for a heat pump?
Please do not listen to that kaboobly doo. Men and women can not be friends.
I suggest renting and watching "When Harry met Sally." It is all in there.
I agree with Tigeree-that is absolute rubbish!!![
I've seen the movie. I didn't really like it very much either, so I am probably in the minority.
I am half and half on the male cannot be friends with a female. I guess it depends whether it's in the workplace or your environment and what that entails.
Also, when you think about it, how can there be any relationship without friendship? Male or female. None of us will ever meet anyway, so the Net is basically like seeing a shrink, in my opinion. You talk by typing. ONly difference is that on the Net, there is no fee to do so.
Oh ok, whatever works for you. That's a big move though. I will never set foot in Florida. Never been to Disney even and don't intend on it.
Hey, Atlanta you would love. It's the most beautiful state I have ever been through. I would not mind living in that state at all, but I don't know anyone there.
Actually, it is cheaper than both Nevada and New Jersey. I agree about California but not about Florida. Anyway, I will near the northern part of the state.
The slow gradual erosion of the coastline is not my immediate worry. A USN map that is being circulated shows an immediate threat to many areas considered safe by phony geological reports.
It seems that what areas of the US that will be safe is a personal decision based on information I hesitate to go into here.
As for the reliability of geological reports, that's not true. I have taken enough Geology courses (3) to know that they stay on top of everything. They are always in the exploration/"watching" stages.
Forget Florida, find a cheap state to live and with all the benefits such as a Southern state---VA, Ala, TN I can highly recommend.
NC where I am? I will b grateful to get out of here. Never visit if i make it out alive.
I am checking out a transfer type program that allows me to finish up my last year in just about any state I choose. Of course I am looking to TN which is where my roots are. I don't like the college I am in now.
You are are absolutely right. All of life is like that. As a matter of fact life itself is an endurance test. Those who work hard will always beat those who do not, regardless of talent or even genius.
Two semesters is not a long time.
I wish that were true.
I have the end of this semester and then two more. I am tired of going to school. '
They give homework under the guise of "well so and so is due the day you come back from break."
I spent the entire day and night writing one twenty page short story and it was not short. I still have to edit it.
Gute Nacht in German. Actually it is morning since 3 am. so that would be
Well it has been a little while since I was here. I am up late, so thought I would take a chance and let anyone who remembers me know that I am alive and still have one more year to go to my MFA.
My math is all finished, but the program I am in requires a foreign language, so I chose German. It was not my first choice, but classes were filled up in Latin. I realize Latin is a dead language, but it is the base of all languages.
I would have had two semesters or maybe one left but I dropped a class here and maybe two and did take that History of Rock Music class that did not count toward my Masters, but it was a darn fun class that rocked the walls with Bob Dylan. My professor and I were the oldest in there and we were nuts over Dylan of course, so the rest of the class had to endure bios and presentations of Dylan from the day he was 17 and hickhiked into NYC from Minnesota with no money.
I digress here as usual.
I have to finish up spring semester and it's the end of April I think when it's over. Out the summer, going to see my 80 year old mother/relatives etc. and somewhere in there look for a summer job. I have volunteered in a humongous art museum for about two years--free--so I am generous like that, but $ is nice.
Since the last post here about the date fianso, I have not looked at a man except in passing in the halls!!!!! As everyone who's heard about that last date knows, I am not good at relationships, it would seem or I choose the wrong ones. So I am on break from relationships since that last crazy one. I may have had dinner or something with a guy but it was harmless and in the daytime. It was safe, since I have known him about four years or more. He always wanted a servent or a wife or something and I cannot cater to such foolishness. Been there done that a thousand years ago---never again.
Spring break was this week and I worked on homework the entire week. Had four books to read and mostly write reviews and my opinions of them etc. My program is in the CRW area of writing, so after my year of "time" is over at college then I can go back home and either be a recluse up behind my mother's house---on a hill next to the family cemetery and write or teach in the high school there. If I am still in existence.
I just know you have all done a lot of math and helping the less fortunate as you did me in the area of math. PRAISE the Lord I have no more math to do except German is a lot to remember. I think it would actually be fun to travel over there and be around people who speak this language.
Long post. The usual long winded female, I fit that descriptiion.
If the post is replied to, I think it sends me notification--not sure it does that anymore. If so, then I will come back and reply, not that anyone will be overjoyed to hear from me or anything.
Thank you again to BobbyM and the ones who helped me pass my math courses. I think I mentioned I did get two B's and before that one C in Algebra, but that C was before I found this board.
Thank you again. Bless everyone.
Hi bobbym, I am okay I guess. Getting ready for school. NC had a tax free weekend (last) as they usually do, before fall semester/any school, starts in Aug. I didn't know I'd need a printer, so much for saving money.
Next week is my last free week to be lazy, but it will be mostly making sure i have not omitted anything. I'm also on two wait listed classes. If i get them, i can drop two of the four i already have.
It is a different university and it's large enough to look intimidating. I am not a nervous person, but I am feeling something.
I gave up on the dating thing. I don't know if i told you, but there is one older man/young kinda, who has pursued me since my last relatiionship ended three years ago. I had one date with him, no sparks at dinner, on my part. I got out of there as quick as possible.
He's hounded me with texts, offlines since that one harmless "out in the open" dinner date. He says it was love at first sight.
This brings me back to the printer i need. He says he has a nearly new one i can have. I am to meet him tomorrow in a public setting. My son says that it is just encouraging a possible stalker, since I have no inclination to be anything to him. I don't want to hurt his feelings, but my life is more important than that.
So, it's back to class for me, and I have to learn a new university, although no one really knows it, when it's so big and covered with teenie boppers. My classes, are unfortunately early. I have never had a class earlier than 11 am. ever. I will be drifting in the traffic, so I may need to get a temporary place closer to campus.
Be as it may, I will check back in. You are not online but i see others you talk to here. It's 5:42 am in the morning on the East Coast.
Hello again. I am a repeat, not new member. It is after 6:30 am on the East Coast and i am just now thinking of going to sleep. I am also in a talkative mood, and lost the random chatter thing. I searched and did not find it.
Have a nice Sunday to everyone.
Carpe diem, peace, make love not war, and all that jazz.
