worky school work

Today was the first day of school. The class was MA 113, Introduction to Probability. It was fun! We got to learn about set theory, including sets, the universe, elements, subsets, empty space.. and such. We did our work, got together in groups, all did fine. Met Yalonda and a girl who calls herself Chan (she says her real name is difficult to pronounce).

Got homework to do. Read chapter one, and several pages of this other book.. do some problems. Problems should be fun and easy, just gotta get the reading done. No biggy, just taking my time, and doing things in between. All pretty simple stuff so far (and very familiar thanks to some programming experience.. which always made sense to me off the bat anyway).

Tomorrow will be AN 101HC, Introduction to Social & Cultural Anthropology (Honors), and EN 101, Technology of Reading & Writing I. That should be fun too! Especially Anthropology. I got a class with Mary Gallagher.. yay! It does start earlier, but that's okay. I just have to be sure and get off work no later than 1:00 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. She warned me that it'll be mostly younger people in her class, to which I retorted that I would probably look younger than any of them anyway.  (^*^);  She said she would be glad to have the company of someone more experienced than the rest of the students in that class (and so she waived the normal 12 credit requirement to get into that class).

I'm not sure what English will be like.. never got around to trying to switch up to English 102 (been so busy, didn't get a hold of the head of the English department to do so). Aa well.. we see how things go. Maybe it'll be better for me to take the 101 class anyway. It's been a while. Or maybe they'll let me switch up later.. who knows. There's a grace period for these things.

The only problematic thing with today was buying the books. I found all the books just fine, and purchased them just fine.. but with my financial aid not through yet, I had to pay for them myself, with money I don't have (which means I used a credit card). I will be picking up my check from work tomorrow.. (going in for about four hours), so that will help, but the one that comes after that is probably going to be pretty skimpy thanks to this week. Didn't work yesterday, won't be working Friday, and Wednesday and Thursday are pretty up in the air. mya

I spent $200.19 on books today, and still have to purchase the books for my Introduction to Human Communication class. The Pell Grant that I'm up for is about $2025, which will cover tuition and books, and leave me with an additional $275 (round abouts).. however, it won't be in for another month or two yet. Things are gonna be tight, and I'm going to have to cancel my PSOBB account, as well as cut my "frivolous spending" budget pretty much entirely. Especially since my food stamps money won't last forever, and I'm going to be paying out of pocket for my meals soon. It may be that credit cards will become a temporarily ally, depending how things go. Which is oofy.. but mya.

'Til tomorrow! Gotta get back to homework before bed..
