My First Week in School

Last Friday was our second meeting on Mathematics for Computing subject. I had a hard time trying to understand how a conversion of number base is done. It is easy, although a minor subject, I needed a little bit time to do an exercise how these things work, and during the session, I have noticed that my classmates find it easy and simple.

But it can't be denied that math gave me a headache, and it took me time to figure out how they were able to come up with their answers. Some parts of math has been my water-loo since college days, so it may no longer be a surprise if I find some data confuses me.

I find my Web Development subject too interesting though, for it allows me to understand more about developing a website and how the codes work using a note pad editor. It is more specific, and you can design a website without using a template that you can get from the internet.

In one of my subject, we've been asked to introduce ourselves and what are some of our expectations in a class as most of them replied, "My expectation is to pass the subject.." Well, that was so classic; I find it understandable because they were young, and perhaps shy and could not think of something else about their expectations. But of course, everybody wants to pass the subject.

During my classes, one thing that surprised me is that some of my classmates are just 15 or 16 years of age which is not quite normal during my freshmen year of my time. Well I guess I am old enough to become a student that even my professors call me "sir" to address my name. But I am not the only senior who went in that school, and in fact, I have a classmate who is an American Navy whose age is 60 years old. But I don't mind at all regardless of age, because we are in a realm of information technology and we needed to update our knowledge in terms of computer education. For us, it's a new endeavor, new opportunity, and it is something that I could not afford to lose.

Going Back to School

I'm officially enrolled in college taking up Bachelor of Science in Information Technology. As I put my best food forward, this gives me a good head start because lately, a lot of ideas are popping out in my head and either way, this new endeavor is good for a career or business. I know it's gonna take some time to finish this course but one year of patience is not bad at all. With all the memories still linger in my head during college years, perhaps it's time also to redeem myself with the shortcomings that I had in the past.

In the class, I know that it's some kinda uncommon for it can't be denied that I am one of those students considered as senior due to my age gap, and some students are only 15 and 16 years old which is quite unusual during our time in college.

My enthusiasm to learn more is there, just to arrive of getting a lot of information that I have been craving for these past few years and nevertheless of my schedules, it's only now that I can enjoy my time studying again.

From being a college student, sales executive, cruise staff, call center agent, business person, but now I am back to one, and this time that is due to my conviction.
