I'm bored on my lunch break at work, so I thought I'd do the whole introduction thing.

Name: Ryan

Age: 24.25

Location: Omaha, NE

Married to: Jenni (whose username is, strangely enough, jenni)

Job: Loss Control Specialist: fancy name for someone who produces certificates of Workers Comp. insurance.

Veg*n status: I've been one for 1.5 years now. Jenni and I currently only consume dairy in the form of cheese and ice cream. No milk or eggs. We're considering going vegan.

Currently consuming: WholeSoy Cherry Yogurt (Yum!)

Musical faves: Radiohead, Coldplay, Smashing Pumpkins, Roadside Monument, Aesop Rock, and on and on and on.

TV faves: The Simpsons, though I never get to watch the reruns due to my work schedule.

Uhhhh....I guess that's it. Any questions?

muppetcow: i'm often bored at work, too, but that's more because my job is boring. i wish i could access the internet other than a few "allowed" sites. however, my company is very strict about the security of our clients' information

mikie: about 5 years ago, i was looking for a new, more mature screen name. i was in calc II at the time, so I looked through the book and it sounded good, so i went with it. i've been stuck with it since, because i can't think of anything better. =)

and thanks everyone for the warm welcome. from what i've read so far, i think i'm going to really enjoy participating here.

Interesting story, derivative... I rarely got below a b- in high school, but I did get a low C in Calculus, and I've never been the same.

Last week, I bought a calculus text book, and I cannot wait until I master it and go back to school thinking it's easy.

It's always been a sore spot in my psyche!

mikie: I did okay in Calc I. I think I got a low A or high B. Calc II, however, was not as easy. The professor was so incredibly monotone; I could barely stay awake. I ended up with a solid C in that one.

Thankfully, I don't ever have to take it again...I hope. I'm going back to college soon to finish my degree, and I'm hoping that the colleges here will accept the credits I earned at my old college in Oklahoma.

Most colleges will accept math credits... good luck transferring English, however. Why is that every college thinks they teach English in a better way than all the other colleges?

It seems that when you get up to Calculus II, it's a general rule that teachers have to be absolutely crazy. Just think, in college, they probably had to go up to Calculus V or something!

I dropped Calc II three times because I never liked my teachers, and I needed a good teacher if I was going to stay in that class...
