Cause, fo realz, they are going to save me this semester.
Somehow it never crossed my mind that there would be math involved in my family finances class. Duh, Sade. I just didn't give it a whole lot of thought, and the little thought I did give it was spent picturing one of those playskool grocery checkouts, like I thought I was taking 3 credits on Extreme Couponing or something.
Well, I was wrong.
I think the most commonly used word so far has been "algebra" which makes me cry a little.
But then I remembered I had an awesome math tutor all through high school (homeschool worked for me) and when I was doing math one-on-one I understood it.
Just as I was giving myself the "I think I can!" pep talk, depression hit. I realized that there are 250 students in my class. Not so one-on-one.
But then, one quick glance at the syllabus later, hope was restored as I remembered the existence of TAs.
Beautiful, nobel, life-saving TAs. Let's just say that we're going to become pretty familiar this semester as I attempt to soak up their knowledge and left-brain abilities.
For those of you who are interested (so, none of you except Katie, I get that), I am going to start linking to blog posts from a year ago in my current posts. Blog posts from Jerusalem.
