Re: going back to college...

lol thanks! i don't plan on going anywhere anytime soon. first semester classes will be easy ( least I'm hoping so!)

Auto Body Refinishing, 1 day a week but its an 8 hour class, 4 units and ill lean how to paint bikes/cars/trucks ect....

Drawing, 2 days a week, 3 units and its a required class for Visual Communications

Drafting, again 2 days a week, 3 units and its a required class for Engineering

then throw in a Kickboxxing class, which is only 1 unit but it go's toward my Humanities requirement and i learn how to punch ( or at least it will look like i know how to punch lol)

I can't express how disturbing it is to me that a kickboxing class goes toward a requirement in the Humanities...PhysEd, sure; but along side an intro to psych, intro to philosophy, an anthropolgy survey course or nice class on drug use in America? No way!

Best of luck on the program...It sounds like a great course of study, and should be challenging if it is to be respected by the student...And 25 is not late...I didn't really go to college (some classes after high school, but nothing much) until I was 30, so don't worry about it.
