  • Pay the Piper

    Well, I knew it was coming, and it had to happen, but today I got the email letting me know that my first student loan repayment is due at the beginning of next month. So, for the next 5 years, I’ve got that to look forward to. Unless, I can somehow manage to pay it […]

  • 3D Showcase

    I wanted to showcase the stuff Lady Ronn made in her 3D Design class. They used a bunch of different materials, and as with most of these school projects, they had some specific guidelines to follow. Which can often lead to some frustration, but I’m pretty impressed with each of these things my lovely wife […]

  • Friday Film Day

    The lovely and talented Lady Ronn is taking a video class this semester and has given me permission to share with you, her first two projects from class. Now, I will simply preface this presentation by saying that outside of capturing some home movies on our Super8 camcorder back in the day and some phone […]

  • My Degree Has Arrived

    My degree has finally arrived. August 16th, 2019 was the big day. September 18th, 2019 they went in the mail. September 20th, 2019 I pulled them out of my mailbox. I have been awarded the degree of Associate of Applied Arts and Sciences Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning/Refrigeration Technology. Woot! It only took 1,081 days, just […]

  • Not Enough Math

    I may have my Associate of Applied Arts & Sciences degree from Grand Rapids Community College, but Ferris State University isn’t impressed. I just took a call from the coordinator of their HVAC program letting me know that he can’t let me into the program and wanting to explain why. Apparently, I do not meet […]

  • Biology Grade Posted

    All my math the other day turned out to be right. I earned an A in Biology 101. And I’m very happy with that. I pulled the grades from a different place this time, so they’re formated a little differently… Also, can you imagine how different my life would be if I had worked this […]

  • Biology Breakdown

    The final grade hasn’t been posted, but class is over and all the quizzes, labs, tests, and assignments have been graded and posted to Blackboard. All of the numbers are there. We have all the pertinent information. Let’s see if we can’t figure out how this will turn out. You know what, wait. I want […]

  • GRCC: That's a Wrap

    Tonight, I left work early and went to the testing center where I took Test #4 and the Final Exam for Biology 101. Not sure how I did, but I feel pretty good about both tests. Afterward, I went to my Biology Lab and did the last of the lab assignments. And that’s it. I’m […]

  • Traits, Recessive and Otherwise

    A little biology exercise from class last week reveals a few things about me. And as I’m in class tonight, I thought this would be as good a time as any to show what I’ve been up to in Biology 101. PTC Taster: I am not a taster. OTher than the taste of wet paper, […]

  • Apparently, I'm Done

    I sent an email to my advisor earlier this week asking about why I was unable to register for a math class in the Fall 2019 semester. She could have responded simply and told me that the math assessment is only good for a year and then you need to retake it. But she didn’t. […]

  • Dropping Public Speaking

    Enough is enough. This class, or rather this instructor, is too disorganized for me to do this in the short summer semester. I received an email this morning, that was sent out last night at 9:38 PM, with a list of things to do, have done, and bring to class tonight. I’ll spare you the […]

  • Too Much?

    This may be rough going. I’ve done two classes each for Public Speaking and Biology lab. I haven’t even started on the Online Biology lecture; that’ll be this weekend. And it feels like a lot to do in this condensed Summer semester. I may have bitten off more than I can chew. Again. I went […]
