I am working (one class at a time) on a nursing degree at the local community college. It’s a chance for me to get out of the house and interact with people and (hopefully) learn new things. My work-at-home job is very solitary, I do a lot of reading about science, but I push a lot of paper (electronically) around and I don’t need to talk to very many people – so it can get lonely.
Last semester, I took a wonderful intro to Sociology class which I loved, loved, loved, even though the professor was 7 years younger than me. This semester I’m taking microbiology which I realized after the first class that I could probably teach it. So it’s a little boring, but I’m trying not to complain too much. There is a lab component which is fun. These are my lab partners who coincidentally also know all the material. One is a fireman/EMT and the other is a pharmacist. I will let you guess which one is which. We make an awesome lab-partner team.
