-1)-1)-1) + 7 = X



For days I went back and forth with whether I should go to school or keep my job at Winners; as it turned out, once I took the math assessment test everything happened very quickly. The assessment was awful (I left more than half the test blank) the college recommended I start at Math 50, the next morning I showed up with an empty notebook and a pen.

I resigned from the big box store the next day. Yay! My last day is Thursday, then I have a shift at the clothing store on Saturday. After a few days off, I'll start applying for something else I can work between the hours of 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.

I really enjoy the math class and I find that shocking! But since I need to complete three high school math courses before I can start the Business Admin Program, I thought I should start asap.

Twenty-nine years after finishing (and barely passing) grade ten math, it's coming back to bite me on the butt. Surreal!

  4. You will do great. I loved Math -- and I looked back a while ago at my Calculus book from SFU - was all Greek to me now!!! But Math can be your friend - I love watching our Math instructors in action here.

    Absorb, learn and grow - its all GREAT!!!

  9. School can be a lot easier as an adult, and you will likely have fun with it, too.
