  1. Well, it took over 6 months, but I finally took the first step! I signed up for 2 classes for the upcoming semester. Turns out my academic probation hold (which is pretty permanent thing on my record thanks to my fun-loving 20s) was lifted automatically by the college for COVID reasons. They granted an automatic lift to everyone on probation with a GPA over 2.0. Mine is apparently a 2.01. So go me! I'm opting to retake 2 classes that I'd signed up for in like 2003 but then stopped going to, earning an F. That way the new grades will replace the old grades bumping my GPA hopefully into non-pr

  2. Nice try,Ender. This place isn't social enough to get you fired.

  3. By some of you no less!! But I believe that I've definitely decided to go back to school...again. I was doing rather well before Luke was born, but then I decided to take a break because newborn, but I never went back. That kid just turned 4. So I looked into it. I'm actually only 6 classes away from wrapping up an Associate of Arts. I need: a 1 hour phys ed class Texas Government a speech/communication class a creative arts class (art history, art/music/dance/theater appreciation) a language/philosophy/culture class (mostly lit, philosophy, and humanities classes) and another science

  4. All this talk about McDiarmid's performance, personally I think this is the best version of the Emperor.

  6. "The USPS sucks balls" is a better argument against mail-in voting than "omg fraud!".

  8. Forgot to say, when I picked the Stones I wasn't even remotely thinking of the back half of their career. They went pop in the 80s, and beyond that they were just fodder for ad commercials and celebrity appearances. They ceased being relevant ages ago. When I think of the stones I'm thinking pre 1972. Everything post Sticky Fingers is pretty meh, save for a random track here or there. Everything from Tattoo You to present is actively crap. So really, I'm comparing them to the Beatles in the same era and not considering anything post 71/72.

  9. I vote in person because I worked in magazine circulation for 4 years. I know how often mail gets lost. I want to see the machine count my vote.

  11. It's cool. I voted five times, to make sure it worked.

  12. The worst part was being in the hospital. The Covid unit is an isolation unit which means no visitors period. I really thought I might die without being able to see my family again. Fortunately I didnt, but I got to witness people who did have that experience, and that alone made the whole thing way more real.

  13. TRUTH. Honestly, though, aren't we all about 10 seconds from making a no-regrets social media post that forces us to resign and not have to deal with our jobs? I know I am.

  14. Yeah, or at the very least you have a fake account for actual family/friends. Its been years since I was on Facebook, but back when I was, my cousin who was a principal had a fake name and profile picture so he could post without being caught. In addition to his real account.

  15. It's mainly real time battles (set up shortcut buttons for your favourite attacks (physical, magic or item usage), you defend or dodge (roll away) out of enemy attacks and so forth), but with an element of the old turn based style still retained in terms of a slow down of time if you go into the ability menu to find a specific attack you want to do for the main character or the rest of your current team. I like the use of the "stagger" bar also to drop your foes for a period of time. The equipment setting is very similar to the original (at least how I remember it all those years back!) in

  16. The early Beatles are sometimes interesting to look at, especially the albums. They were so popular that the record company obviously wanted to just keep pushing content out. They were releasing 2 albums and 4 singles a year. Their first 4 albums have tons of covers on them to fill them out, other than A Hard Days Night, which is really the pinnacle of the early Beatles "Merseybeat" kinda sound. The album is near perfection for the style. Just look at the track listing: A Hard Days Night, I Should Have Known Better, If I Fell, I'm Happy Just to Dance With You, And I Love Her, Tell Me Why, Ca

  17. Literally my entire life's motto is "be who you needed when you were younger". That's my entire parenting and dealing with children on any level philosophy. Also, I really prefer the tweens and teens age groups. The subjects are more fun and the kids like my sarcastic and irreverent nature.

  18. No. Not yet. Income-wise, probably. But most financial aid requires that you meet certain academic progress criteria, and thanks to all the classes I dropped, stopped attending, or simply just decided to fail in my teens and early 20s, I definitely don't meet those. It'll be another year or so of actually completing classes for those ratios to even out. If you want to go into education (I believe you would be incredible...I think your experiences as both a parent and a student are invaluable) in a high need field, such as special education, you might qualify for the TEACH grant.
