    Today I begin two new phases of my life: teaching and college student.

    At work, I'm going to be a facilitator, teaching a class of 51 newly hired employees, showing them how to do what we do here, and it's a three-week curriculum. Needless to say, I'm a little nervous because I've never taught before. Wish me luck.

    Then after the work day is finished, I'll zip over to the local community college and start the first day of my first-ever college class, U.S. History II (you can take them out of order, apparently). At 35, I should have long ago started work on my degree, but rather than lament the late start, I'm just pushing ahead. Again, wish me luck.

    As such, because of all these changes, I may not be able to post on the board as much as I'd like to, but I still enjoy the company of all you fine fellows and ladies.

    Don't forget to beat the shit out of the biggest guy there so the rest of the class knows who's in charge.

    Sit in front of the class and show off your knowledge by speaking up and being the best student. The other students will worry that you will do well on tests and they'll be worried about the curve!

    You will terrify the young college students. They'll come to look at you with a mix of awe and scorn. "How does that old fart do so well on these test? Was he there when Lee signed the surrender papers?" and "That SOB doesn't have anything better to do that to study for these damn tests! I'll bet he's never invited to the keggers *I* go to!"

    As a former Navy man, you'll crush them. And you could probably pound them at the kegger, too.

    Take it to a room, but leave the door cracked.

    Good luck to you AA.

    I went back to school after being out a while. It sure was different than the first time. When you're older, you just want to slap around the loosers who would rather do anything but learn.

    On the other hand, the weather's warm and there should be hundreds of 18 year old girls wandering around the local JC wearing tank tops and shorts. So you've got that going for you, which is nice.

    Facilitating my last section of the day and it's gone great so far. Some system issues (computer login problems, of course), but the opening of the class went great. Felt like a veteran. My curve ball was popping.

    Did my first teaching a while ago and was terrified. Turned out to be one of the greatest experiences of my life.

    Kick ass, Alley. :D

    Now, of course, her students will ask for autographs, and if she knows John Waters.
