Yes it's true. I'm a co-ed again. And let me just say that college wasn't this hard when I was a co-ed the first time. I feel like I pushed the wrong key on the computer and lost all my files. And can you say "OLD"! I mean the only person older than me in my classes is my math teacher. And speaking of math, WHAT WAS I THINKING??!!! Why is the class I signed up for--"Math for Elementary Teachers"--all about Algebra? I thought I'd had enough Fibinaci numbers and Pascal triangles when I was in Jr. High. And that was 40+ years ago! I'm also taking International Children's Literature which will be interesting. And then my other class is Beginning Spanish. OK, here's the first day in Spanish:
Teacher: I want everyone to introduce themselves and then tell three
things about yourself--two true and one false.
Me:...Well, one, I'm a Grandma; two, I'm thirty-five; and three, I graduated
from the U in 1975.
Teacher: I don't think you could possibly have graduated in '75.
Yessss, I love that teacher!
The other thing about the U is that it covers a lot of area and you have to park in Sandy if you drive. And that's how close you can get for $75. Also--Books--and I'm not talking about beautiful coffee table books with filagree edges and fabulous photography. My three textbooks and two workbooks cost $300! Can you believe it?
P.S. Did you know that every night the buildings get shuffled around and all the classrooms are re-numbered so it's really easy to get lost?
