Guh. I am supposed to be working on the coursework for my summer algebra class. Having pretty well bombed out on the preceding chapter (a 63% test grade is NOT GOOD), I have pretty much zero self-confidence when it comes to pounding this stuff into my brain right now. Rather silly, really, as I'm doing fairly well with the homework for the first chapter section. Quadratic functions, you will FEAR the power of my MIGHTY BRAINMEATS! (...or they would if I'd quit doofing around on here and, y'know, actually go DO the homework. Whatevs.)

Alternatively, I could go scurry off to prep the room for my noon-thirty massage client. That would be a useful thing to do, indeed. ::watches self continue to do nothing particularly useful at all::

Can I just spend the day studying my math stuff and playing around with Ruby instead? Please? Because that would be fantastic, thanks. It'd be great if I could find some way to get paid to do math homework and learn Ruby, rather than have to do massages for a living. I really did pick the wrong field in which to work whilst earning a degree; I do not like people, and I do not like touching them.

It could be worse, though; I like my boss, and I like my coworkers, and we have a really nice office. Our clients are (for the most part) kind, reasonable, polite, and easy to work with. There's a minimum of drama, which is a pleasant change from prior places of employment. I do get a fair bit of time during the work day to naff about on Teh Intarbuttz and do homework.

I only have to stick this out for another year or two, and then I'll have become proficient enough with Ruby on Rails to apply for that Fancy Shiny Apprenticeship program. ::makes SUPAH!determined face:: I can totally do this.
