Welcome, and thanks…

for caring enough to take a peep. This is to be my scratchpad for primarily economic, but also any other, thought that seems vaguely relevant to 2011’s newest challenge. That is my journey into the world of being a “non-traditional student” (i.e. I’m old, financially independent and will be attending part time) in economics.

I’m beginning this journey in about 2 weeks at Chicago’s Harold Washington College, a seemingly fine and certainly reasonably priced institution of higher learning that I will be attending for at least 2 semesters. Afterwards (inshallah, so to speak), I will be transferring over to the University of Illinois at Chicago.

This will also maybe serve to be a repository of streams of stuff about the world at large which I’m usually piling up over at Facebook. Not sure if I’ll continue “blessing” everyone with my daily blasts over there (Will have to see if there is a popular outcry! I suspect not). They will continue here either way for the gluttons for punishment among us to continue embiggening their minds with.

Anyway, a fitting thing to start on Dec. 31st I reckon.

  2. Thanks Dana. I’m fairly chomping at the bit. Where and for what are you going?

      I’m starting my prerequisites at Pima Community College and transferring to The University of Arizona for Computer Science. I finished my first semester with a 4.0! I hope to continue that. Haha. I want to get into software engineering and programming.
