Another long pause between posts.
After much research and wrangling, I have actually started classes at De Anza College, one of the 112 community colleges here in California.  I am taking both traditional and online classes to make my load easier as I knew I would need to take a few remedial courses (Math, specifically -- I can't place well in a placement test with stuff I didn't learn the first time, thanks to a couple bad apples in my high school education) but I didn't want to get overwhelmed with the time management issues involved with a high-unit class load.  As someone with ADHD, I qualify for some assistance, and I will be getting paperwork filled out this week for that, and if I stay frugal I should be able to cover expenses (I will be applying for scholarships all the same) so I can just focus on doing well in school.  Focus is both a bane and blessing for ADD folks... we can hyperfocus to exclusion of all else for hours, and the rest of the time have difficulting in maintaining focus for more than 5 minutes.  I need to develop time management skills to keep me on track -- I wonder if there's a class for that.

Grats on getting back to school. I know that's something you've been talking about. I assume your foots finally healing for you to be strong enough to make your way to class? I hope so at least.

Think about you lots and hope things are doing well over there.

Best wishes

and good luck (I suspect you'll need just a little - as well as a pat on the back for the effort).

Here's hoping that you did well on your recent final exams...(maybe let me know how they came out sometime?)
