or ... I'm not sure if it's the maths or the typing that's going to finally do me in.

So I'm doing my Bachelor of Science. Again. I did it, originally, when I was young and stupid, and ended up with a degree that a) I didn't really want, and b) I never actually used. I didn't really want the degree because it was in an area of science that doesn't really interest me: Biology. I did it because I was young and stupid, and followed my friend into her field, and because it was easy. What I really wanted to do - what I have always wanted to do - was maths. And physics. Because numbers are fun. Really. It's just that when you have to suddenly work your head around stuff you haven't done in *cough*20 years*cough*, it hurts a bit.

Okay, a lot.

But what's more frustrating is when you've finally beaten the work into submission, you've then got to turn around and fight with Word to get it formatted properly. Actually, it could have just been because I was working in pseudocode, which is fine when you're handwriting it, but it involves numbered lists. Repeating sections of numbered lists, and the lists DO NOT LIKE to repeat sections of numbers. Or, at least, mine didn't tonight. But I beat it! I ended up working with text boxes to separate out the sections so that I could have them all lined up, all numbered exactly the way I wanted, and now I'm happy. The assignment is finished, due in 5pm Thursday, and all I have to do is fill out the coversheet and hand it in. Yay!

My first post: what shall I say? Should I dribble on about, well, nothing, or simply introduce myself? This is my non-fanfic page, so maybe a brief introduction.

I am a single mother of three children, living in a three-generation household. That's right, I moved back home to Mother. And Father. Just thought I should mention that. I have an amicable relationship with my ex (really should get around to divorcing him some day) and I love my family. I have 2 girls and a boy, and for those in the Greater South-East of Queensland, beware: my eldest gets her Learners next year. If I didn't have grey hairs before (no comment) I will then.

I'm going back to Uni next year. (How's that for a segue?) Well, in 11 days time, but that's really part-time/external. And I have my first assessment on the 16th. Not that I'm stressing or anything. I'm doing Maths and Physics. I really should have done it first time around, but I was lazy and influenced by peer-pressure. (Do Biochem! I'm doing it, and we can study together!) But Maths is my Wun Twu Wuv!!!!! and it's the language of Physics, so who am I to argue with Twu Wuv! and Soul-Mates! and all that? Please! The quiet screams of 'what the hell am I doing?!' are just a cover for the fact that I'm getting an education. Again.

Well, anyway, I'm going to sign off here. I'm going to try for Nanowrimo this year (should I have signed up already?) and I've started writing something. Fanfic and original fic will be on my other page: [personal profile] misse
