This is my freshmen year of college, so book shopping is fairly new to me. I didn’t really know what the experience would be like. My mother told me you can’t buy books until you get your class syllabi. Although the course catalog suggests what you need, dif ferent teachers may have dif ferent...

As most people expect, college life knocks high school life out of the ballpark. I know this because it is my first year here at Los Medanos College, and a lot of stuff is new to me.

As I creep toward the ripe old age of 30, although I am only 27 now, a sense of overwhelming pressure hovers over me. I’m getting older. I know that and I have to accept it. But what really bothers me right now is time. There never seems to be enough to accomplish everything that I’d like to get...

Ah, another school year begins here at LMC. Everyone who’s anyone is probably busy adding, dropping or being wait-listed into classes; which is a “normal” late-August here at LMC. So to the returning students I say, “welcome back!” And to the new students fresh from high school graduation...
