I did it because, even then, I could see that public education was silly and the kids immature... or, maybe I was a dork.. anyway, the skill has come in handy as an academic..
Think about this -- On December 15:
- I'm planning a course that will end in mid-May.
- Two weeks ago I finished the Summer 08 schedule.
- Last week I worked out the major kinds from the Fall 08 schedule.
Yea, that work-ahead thing may have been inconvenient for my 4th grade English teacher, but it is coming in handy for me...
