School days, Golden Rule days

  • Do you have any old school books? Did you keep yours from college? Old textbooks from garage sales? Old workbooks from classes gone by?
  • How about your old notes, exams, papers? Do you save them? Or have they long since gone to the great Locker-in-the-sky?

Yeah, I think most of my college notes are boxed up, sitting in my parent's basement! I'm sure I saved my artwork from high school, but hopefully, nothing else from that era.

I wouldn't mind having that stuff back so that I can go through it. My art is probably not worth having, but I did take some interesting classes in college. And I'm forgetting the information I learned... The animal nutrition classes were among my favorites; I remember "PVT TIM HALL" stands for the essential amino acids, but I've forgotten what they all are!

I also took several creative writing classes, and I think I kept hardcopies of the stories. maybe? I wrote them on a jazzed up typewriter, saved to disk, but then got rid of the typewriter so the disks are useless. I totally regret ditching that typewriter. It had a little tetris game on it, even. sighs.

The books from my college classes, I mostly sold back. I did keep a couple. I was intent on reading my Astronomy book, straight up. But have yet to. It does have some great photos in it.

I think I kept the book of Chaucer. But I don't remember seeing it around, so I'm not sure what happened to that. We had to memorize the first paragraph of The Canterbury Tales and recite it in the original Middle English. "Whan that Aprill with his shoures soote..." bleh.

I also kept the Collegiate Dictionary of Zoology. I actually use this book on a fairly regular basis! I have an interest in animal classification.

... So ... from the random classes and books I've mentioned, do you think you could guess what my major was??

Haha, nope, you're not even close!

I majored in Equine Science, Industry Concentration. And minored in Computer Science.

And yeah, I'm a wage slave making screens to print decals. I think one time I got to make a screen with a horse on it, but that's as close as I get to my college major these days.
