- I had dinner with my brother, sister-in-law, and dad.
- I had asparagus stuffed chicken for the first time. Yummy!
- Watched a BBC show called Top Gear, and learned that a Nissan pickup converted to an amphibious vehicle (correctly of course) can make it from England to France across the English Channel.
- While playing a game of Trivial Pursuit I learned that Ben and Jerry's retired flavors go to the Flavor Graveyard. I love that the cartouche on each gravestone has angel wings on the ice cream cone. My brother pointed that out to me. That still cracks me up. http://www.benjerry.com/fun/halloween/?fg=1
- Well, I learned that I need a lower lever class right now, since I've forgotten so much. I don't know a covalent bond from a Sean Connery Bond. ;)
- Switched to Principles of Chemical Science.
- The first video lecture was an introduction of the professors. Both are women, which makes me happy.
- I learned that I can take 3 pages of notes and still not understand what he was writing on the blackboard. :)
- I'll have to do some background reading on polynomials brush up on Algebra III.
- I was reading the lecture notes for the chemistry class and they mentioned rules and policies regarding 'clicker use'. I had no idea what they were talking about. The first thing that came to mind was those noise making clickers that some dog trainers use. I knew that couldn't be right. So I found out that many colleges are using 'clickers' to encourage interaction in classrooms. Village Voice wrote an article about clickers last year. http://www.villagevoice.com/2011-01-05/news/the-rise-of-clickers-is-starting-to-change-how-college-professors-run-their-classrooms/2/
- Oooo! And, I learned how to turn off the 'Sidebar' and the 'Ticker' on Facebook. Woohoo!

Not A bad job for my first week of learning new things. :D
Oh! Also, I learned that Google Chrome's built-in spell checker, is kind of lacking. It didn't recognize 'cartouche' or 'covalent' and I double checked them on Dictionary.com.
