My Biology Class is on Monday night

So last night was only the 2nd class, since the school was closed for the celebration of Dr. King's birthday last Monday. I arrived, early, after enjoying a lovely dinner with BabyBoy. He has rehearsal for his new play at the same time I have class, so it just makes sense to hang out with him for an hour or so on Monday nights.

I have to give the instructor credit, I probably would not have handled everything with the grace she did. According to her she had received several emails from various students asking about breaks on nights when we would be there late. (Class times are from 6:30-9:15) She explained that because she was sick last class and we left early, we would have to stay for the duration of class time and she would be giving us a break at 8:00 on the nights we would be there the entire time. We had a break at exactly 8 and we were released about 9:10. She also said that if we were not going to stay after 8, there would be no breaks. That's fine, but by 8, I have to GO, so I hope she doesn't think she is going to get an extra 5 or 10 minutes out of me.

She is a really great instructor. When DSD was teaching (in the Navy) during review time, he would kick the podium when he meant "This WILL be on the test," she just says, "This WILL be on the test." But the most important thing is that she isn't putting me to sleep. I think I may actually have a slight understanding of enzymes right this minute and that wasn't something I could say yesterday. :-)

Funny how instructors point out material on exams. Yet many people still fail. Go fig.
I'm not looking forward to Bio. I think it's one night of a three-hour lecture and another night of a three-hour lab.
I'm doing Art Appreciation this semester online... therefore I can take a break whenever I want to. :-)
