Spring Term is upon me so I don't expect to be on the forums/chats more than once a week. No promises though, it's a tough addiction to break.

Why? well, I am taking 5 classes this term as opposed to 4 last term and I really have found what works well for me as a learning style. This means long hours writing/ transcribing information. Last term I got sick and ended up in the hospital for a few weeks and it was really hard to catch up. I ended up last term with a 3.5 gpa instead of the 4.0 I knew I could have achieved. My goal this term is for that 4.0 and nothing is gonna stand in my way!

I have also started exercising more and this makes me tired, so I plan on an early to bed strategy as well.

I won't be totally absent though, I might lurk in the chat on a study break or peruse the forum threads for anything Suzuki related or interesting to me.

I am also as I am sure everyone is aware by now, participating in some live video hangouts which is also going to require some additional practice and study time as well.

I am committed to Australia Day, which I am practicing Waltzing Matilda for that. There is also a rumor of The Godfather theme party which I am excited about.

So I will still be here, while not being so much here.

It is great fun to interact with this community that has taught me so much, I plan on being around for a long time to come.

Nice to see that you are so disciplined. Enjoy the term and keep up the great work. Goals are great but don't let shortcomings bring you down. 3.5 is great.

In order to use the colleges practice rooms, I think I just agreed to join their orchestra!? I am due in the orchestra room at 2:30. (All I really want is a quiet place to practice during the 5 hour gap between classes on Mondays.) that's what happens I guess when you take a violin to classes.

I did two semesters a couple of years ago and enjoyed it. I love learning. Whenever I walked through the hall where they taught science and technology, I felt like I was in a museum.

 

I enjoyed the English classes. The professors seemed pretty open to whatever I wrote. I didn't like a couple of the classes like Communication and Anthropology in particular because I didn't feel that the professors were very open-minded. In anthropology, I would make suggestion for a better world and the professor kept poo-pooing my thoughts and would mark me down.

 

My favorite professor was my Philosophy professor. He was open to whatever a student had to say as long as he built his case in the paper.

 

It is true that I usually do march to the beat of a different drummer.

 

Good luck in college. My hat is off to you.
