Semester Two at Vermont Tech

I just wanted to let everyone know what classes I am taking this semester.
In no particular order of importance they are:
Physics
Calculus
CAD part II
English-Technical Writing
Materials (deals with concrete and asphalt)

Lots of work this semester. One more class than last. I have 18 credits this time. I won't have to take 5 classes again during a semester thankfully. My schedule is better than last semester in that I have only one day that I am on campus from 8-6. I still have my job at the hardware/feed store on Wednesday afternoons and weekends. I set up tutors for myself in Calculus and Physics. I really like having tutors especially the way it works at VTC. If you sign up early enough (of course I did!!) you can get a 1:1 tutor. Plus there is no charge for this service. There is lots of drop in tutoring but none of that is 1:1. This school seems to go out of its way to help us succeed. I hope I can do as well as I did first semester. I have put a fair amount of pressure on myself to do well. I really like to get A's.

I think that Johnny the Bobblehead is planning to attend some of my classes with me this semester. He claims he wants to learn some more, but I think he just wants to check out the co-eds.

Those all sound like fun classes, except for English. We all know you will do great; you could probably be tutoring all the kids! How much class will you miss for the Frozen Four?

I will only miss two days of classes as long as I get my CAD work done on Tuesday. My only class on Thursday is CAD so I need to finish my assignment before I leave school on that Tuesday. I am going to talk to my other profs in a week or so to let them know I will be missing some classes in April. I already know it won't be a problem in English as he has scheduled conferences for the classes on Wed and Friday.
I am quite sure I will need to do some homework while I am in Denver.

good luck this semester.
concrete and asphalt - i will file that away and the next time i take on another project, i might have to invite you down for your expertise. i could have used someone with your skills when i was trying to stake out my deck. what a nightmare that was.

Jeffrey said...

Mikey you needed a surveyor to do that for you. Hey wait I could do that...

concrete and asphalt?

i see a bunch of a's in your future, considering how hard you are working...

Jeffrey said...

I ain't too sure about this calculus stuff. Not faring very well on my first two quizzes.
