DD actually seems to have that rarest of all college animals-a functional group project where everyone is participating!

    DD#3 has already done a lot of her homework. Her idea of heaven - a class about snakes!

    I hope she's enjoying it. DD was really nervous this morning. She really wants it to go well.

Kid, I am not responsible for the digital stuff that comes with your textbook. If I had my way, you'd have a print book and problem sets just like I did back in the dark ages when dinosaurs roamed the earth.

There is little panic deeper than a kid who has spent the last three years building up a SciComm account and following-and who finds her account inaccessible. Twitter tech support is less than helpfu

DD12 is in her first college final-which is also her first ever final. I think I'm more nervous than she is!

    I think the anxiety over the first year college finals is worse than AP exams. Sounds like she's doing great!

    Why would the Poles make a cartoon featuring Australian animals? It sounds soooo weird hearing koalas speak Polish.

Watching a biologist live tweet her dissertation defense is really cool (pre-scheduled tweets)-it's #morailsdefense if anyone wants to hop in!

It seems an easy question-when does conference registration END tonight? So far, I've called, e-mailed, and messaged four different people, and still don't have an answer. Ugh.

    Test is done, with a 95! Somehow, I don't think she needed to worry...

Seriously? Apparently DD's college textbook's online components only work well on 32 bit versions of IE??!!?? I paid $125 for this???

    Can you download a 32 bit version? It should work just fine on pretty much any computer.

    A's went well too. The prof sounds very cool and apparently seems very passionate about math himself.

    When we had the birthdate issue, an officer asked DS to enter the info with an "older" year. Then she went to tech support and had them change it back for him.
