My first day at City College

Woe is me, all summer long I was happy and free. Save my soul, the board of education took away my parole. I gotta go back, back, back to school again.

What a day! Up at 5:30 to catch the bus to take me to my first day of school!
I arrived about 30 minutes early in order to find my class on time. Political Science 102, The American Political System. I found my seat and settled in 5-10 minutes before class began. I was shocked at the amount of people that came in late. OK 8AM on the first day of school I can understand if you are 5, maybe 10 minutes late.. But half an hour?? Well Miss THANG pulls a chair up next to me and says "can you scoot down?" (I wanted to say) NO BITCH I CAINT!! I got here on time, I picked this aisle seat because I wanted it. But what I did say (politely) "no you can sit in the middle I was here on time so I could have my pick of where to sit".. Or as Sister Iona said.. (I'm paraphrasing here) "I aint in school to make friends, move your ass out of my way"

I really liked the Professor, hes been teaching 40 years and this is his last year before retirement so hes full of stories, and VERY ADD like me. I follow him perfectly. So far there are 3 or 4 cute BOYS in that class, one who is sorta "cubby", but yes they are all under 20 years old, Im guessing more like 18 or 19, fresh out of High School. Those of you that know me know how I feel about the young ones.

I have a 5.5 hour break between classes on Mon & Wed, which beginning next week will be fine, because I can go to the library and study and play on Facebook...I mean study. Today I came home to eat lunch. The bus ride is only about 30 minutes each way, if i were to drive it takes me about 15 minutes to get to City College but with the parking situation downtown I could drive around for 15-20 minutes looking for a parking spot that's blocks away from the school. It really is quicker to just take the bus.

Back to school to try and crash a math class (some people call it auditing a class) Technically I wasn't crashing because I was on the wait list for the class, I am #7 on the list. I got there early and sat front and center so she could see my smiling face! ( I may have even flirted a little, HELL I NEED THIS CLASS) When the instructor took role today there were 8 registered students not in class and 2 on the wait list, so I moved up to #5 on the wait list.. The instructor said if they aren't here on the first day I drop em!! Now if 8 registered students were absent and I am #5 on the list... Well lets just say that math I DO understand, however the instructor wont give out any add codes until the next class, so Im still not officially in yet.

I really hate math, or I should say the IDEA of math. Today the instructor went over some basic stuff and it all started coming back to me, I even asked a question that stumped her for a moment. I think I'll do well in this class. The instructor encouraged us to try to form study groups of 3-4 people, so after class the cute read head boy came up and introduced himself. His name is Sydney.
