So, since work has been beyond minimal, my Wife and I have become Full-Time College Students!!!
Annie (my Wife) is focusing on her Major in Forensic Genealogy. Accreditation is very similar as would be for a P.E., except Her field requires a Masters', instead of a Bachelors' alone.
My target is mostly General Ed and reviews of all Math-Based stuff, English, Writing, and Engineering Fields.
Annie and I started this quest last Semester (Summer), in which we both attended an expedited "Hybrid" Anthropology Intro course.
Expedited meaning a 16 week course being fast-tracked in 5 weeks!
"Hybrid" meaning the course was part on-campus and part on-line. This is how we were able to do 16 weeks worth of lessons in only 5 weeks.
Man, I am loving this!!!
The Anthropology course was tough, but very exciting! Learned quite a lot, despite the fast-track 5 weeks.
For this Fall Semester, my Wife and I have one common on-line course which we both are enrolled... Political Science!
The Instructor is awesome, and takes the on-line course very seriously.
Annie has Two on-campus courses for this Semester: Architecture (intro), and History of Rock-And-Roll.
For this Semester, I have One additional on-line course: Intro to Database (MS Access), and Two on-campus courses: Music Theory 102 and 106.
102 is "Sight Singing" scores, Rhythms and pitch with emphasis on beat tracking (we are learning Rhythmic Syllables and The Conductors Beat - the hand-movements used by Conductors).
106 is Rhythms and pitch, applied towards relating Instruments to the Score, with emphasis towards Classical and Jazz Pieces.
It is great to be back in Music!
My Career had stifled everything outside of the Electrical Engineering Realm.
Last time I played my Drum Kit was Early Spring 2003; played for a whopping 30 Minutes.
The Y2K Roll-Over was the final Jam I played.
Since New Year 2000, all the way to April of this Year, life has been 100% EE; and let me tell ya':
"All EE and no Play, makes Scott a Dull Boy!!!"
To wrap this up, I thought this would be interesting everyone here at ECN!!!
Especially since I am 49, and 99.5% of the Students in my Classes are < 30!!!
Take it easy everyone!!!
