New Crayons

I remember the excitement of going back to school.  Getting new school supplies, new clothes, being a grade “older”.  Well, here I am — going back to school (and it’s not just the “grade” that’s getting older these days).  School has certainly changed!  I’m enrolled in an online college.  I never have to go to a classroom.  So much for new clothes! I didn’t get any new crayons this time around either. But I can see the need to get out the sharpener because as far as pencils go, well, I’m not the sharpest in the box! My online college gives me access to a tool called a “Math Assessment.”  My first indication that I was in trouble was when it said that I had 3 hours to complete it.  THREE HOURS!  If it takes me more than 5 minutes, it ain’t happening in my lifetime. I’m a firm believer that the only math I need is the math that is available through my desktop calculator.  I don’t need to know calculus or trigonometry… dude, I can barely spell those words, much less define them – or, God forbid – work a problem. School these days is so much better.  Heck, with school online, not only do I not need new clothes, I can attend class in my PJs.  There’s no tardy bell anymore, no detentions – and if I’m lucky, I can stay out of the principal’s office (this time around!)
