The Riddler

I attend school 4 days a week for at least 2-3 hours a day.  May not be a lot, but it is harder than you think because it is a work at your own pace classroom.  This means that you use your own means to get your class module finished.  I like to be the most anti-social being in the classroom and sit in my own little world and work on my computer. I don't have friends in class, I don't make small talk, I am there to learn Web Design and that is all. In other words I am a total beast. (It is a stretch for me, I know!)
There is one old lady, "The Riddler" in my class that attends on Monday- Wednesday.  She is clearly learning about computers and photoshop.  I would be fine with her in my class except for the fact that she like to ask the most ridiculous questions.  She yells at the computer, and asks it to work for her.  She pesters the teacher, (he is a very patient person, but you can tell there are some days he doesn' t want to deal with her.)  Today she started on one of her rants that included: which colors she should use for her project,  which program opens a certain file type, and if it was "Happy New Years" or "Happy New Year"!  It was when she started talking about what the history of figgy pudding " (From the Christmas Carol, "We Wish You a Merry Christmas") that I realized that I was so over this and was going to take an extra day for my winter break.   I think my best Christmas present this year will be an extra 3 hours away from the Riddler!

That is how I am in school! I am not there to be social...I do my thing and get out of there. The older I get, the less patience I have. :)
