I had envisioned that I would post twice weekly on my progress as a student. Well because I am a student I have no time left to post. I don’t know how these kids do 2 and 3 classes with all the homework.
Plus the fact that our rental house has imploded on us hasn’t helped the situation. I have successfully ( with the help of the courts and the Sheriff) successfully evicted a half-dozen squatters from the house and I am now am in the process of getting it cleaned up and rent able. Since it is located directly across from the college I attempted to post a listing for it at the school, but the person I asked where to go to do that was house hunting so she and her roommate have rented it and are helping with the cleaning and painting. They are two cute young gals attending Olympic College and are so excited about having a house with space. I think this will work well for all of us.
I have come to the conclusion that I will probably take this same class again next quarter rather than moving on to Spanish 102. I can do the written work, I can pass the tests, but it’s the oral part that I’m still weak in. My goal has never been to become a translator or even be truly “proficient” in Spanish, I just need to improve my vocabulary and my ability to “hear” rapidly spoken Spanish. Also to be able formulate basic sentences. I’m in no hurry, I won’t move on until I feel I have mastered the material. This is the luxury of taking a class for personal enrichment rather than credit.
What amuses me is that my costs for going to school on a $5 senior waiver ended up costing $47. On top of the $5 fee they had a security fee a student fee and a something else fee. But it’s cheap at twice the price so I’m sure not complaining. Signing off KO
