I ain't as dumb as they want me to think I am...
As some of you know, I left my job at Christmas to return full time to school to get an engineering degree, I'm kinda clever ;-), but my first full time semester was full of suck. I took Thermo, Dynamics, Solid Mech, and Chem for Eng.
Chem for Eng was a joke, I never attended class and got an A.
Thermo, the teacher, it was his first time, I learned from the book, got a B+
Dynamics, the teacher was a grad student, and he was incredibly passionate about teaching, great class, harder than hell, got a B.
And then there is Solid Mech. The grade has been a sword of Damocles hanging over my head, I was doing so poorly that I even registered to take it again in the summer, the first test, I got a 39, and that was greater than one sigma below the mean.
Well folks, I just dropped that summer class because I got a C. Yea freakin' ha!!! I never thought I'd be this excited to be average. LOL.
So now I have all summer, only one class (materials) and maybe a part time job, expect to see more (low cost) instructables. Ghod, right now I feel awesome.
