Hot damn! I ate a big pile of salad AND A TINY SLICE OF PIZZA!!! (The lettuce in the salad was shredded, bob bless the deli at the North Campus building, and the pizza I'd cut into dime-sized bites, but what the hell! It was PIZZA!) *cheer*

The only on-campus meeting for my class was tonight. Most of the other students work in the health care industry in some way or another; in fact, three of them besides me work at my hospital, and a fourth is a coding supervisor for the external coding group we've just started working with in the past six months. It sounds like it'll be an interesting endeavor - no tests or anything, grades are based on participation in discussions and how you demonstrate application and understanding of the learned concepts in said discussions. Reminded me of what I was positive was an educational structure based on some Greek philosopher, but it does not appear to be Socratic in nature, so I'm not entirely sure what I was thinking of.

Winter is going to be the ugly quarter though - I'm going to need three classes, all of which will need to be taken That Quarter. Math - because my math placement results are only good through winter quarter, and I don't want to have to pay to take the damn placement test again. BTS 168 Database Applications - required as either a prereq or concurrently to the next MEDIT class. And MEDIT 220, Healthcare Informatics Standards - the second of three MEDIT courses. (Compounded, naturally, by the fact that each MEDIT class is only offered one quarter a year - fall for the first, winter the second, and spring the third. So if I miss one, I fall a year behind.)

Ergo, my Christmas list will probably consist of about $300 worth of Southwest gift certificates and Lots Of School Moneys. (Dear parents: I mean it. School > Ugly Moose. In fact, School even > NON-ugly moose.)

gnar. I need to do a bit of quick research (I only have to write about a paragraph - half a page, maybe) on the effects going back to college can have on a full-time employee - and while I can speak to my own personal experience, the assignment actually requires research from an external (preferably unbiased) source. My google-fu is failing me, and I'm apparently not coming up with the right string to search on. Any suggestions on how I might phrase it elsewise?
