first day of school

So, I graduated from university in 2002 and went right into a government job with the newly formed TSA. Big mistake. Not only did my abusive ex boyfriend work at the same airport they wanted us to do the physically impossible and, with my fibro, they refused to work with me so I had to quit. Can you say no disability???? So I've been kinda floating while working on the novel and decided to return to school for a second degree. I'm way out of my comfort zone with this one - Chemistry.
Today was the first day back and I'm stunned at how much the teachers are using the internet as a crutch. I had one teacher - ONE - hand out a syllabis. I know that's not spelled right. Everyone else just said it's on the web page make sure you look at it. The rest of their lectures made no sense because they didn't have the bloody class schedule in front of them, or us, so it was pretty much a waste of time.
Then there was the four mile round trip walk in six inches of snow with an injured knee because there's no parking on campus at all. The only class I had fun in was my history class, Pirates of the Carribbean and Beyond. My teacher is from England so I loved listening to him and he had everything in order, ready to go and seems to know what he's doing. Now I just have to figure out how to convince him I need to do my term paper on Captain Jack Sparrow. *evil grin*
