My introduction

I'm not sure if this is really necessary to do, make an introduction. I suppose I will anyway because I'm going to sleep soon and I don't have time to ask my question that I joined this forum to ask. Well... I suppose by the time I finish this introduction it will have taken as much as time as it would have originally to ask the question I came here to ask.. It's too late now anyway, and I'm over complicating this.

Basically, I joined this forum because I have a very tight schedule and I am unable to visit my math professor's office hours and I need help occasionally and I used to join forums based on my interests. Math is one of my interests but I haven't ever joined a forum pertaining to the subject... I'm rambling. I should be going to sleep actually.

Um. Thanks in advance for your inevitable welcomes. I probably won't bother to check this forum again anyway. Actually, I think I will tomorrow morning. Sigh... christ. I just watched the movie "The Social Network" and I'm somewhat hyper. That, and I just drank a cup of coffee.

Well I'm enrolled in five classes at high school and two classes at my local university. Now, it is not a... high quality university by any stretch of the imagination, but it's a start. I am in Calculus II and the rest of my classes are unimportant. My Professor's office hours are in the mornings which are taken up by my high school classes. I am a Junior and should probably sum this up. I'll probably keep rambling, though because I just had that coffee and I won't fall asleep for a while anyway.

This is the most verbose introduction on a forum I have ever made. I consider myself a boring person, but most people disagree with me. A random point I would like to make is that I believe ADD or ADHD are just personality aspects that lie on a gradient. I think everybody has a separate attention span and those with less-than-adequate attention spans are diagnosed with the "disorder" and given medication for it. In my opinion, that would be like giving medication to every red-head for having RHD (red-headed disorder) or RHHD (red-headed hyperactive disorder). Yes, I had to make a separate subcategory of the non-sense disorder to also categorize somebody's inadequate imperturbability (Yes, I looked that word up because I couldn't think of an antonym of "Hyper" so I looked it up and picked the longest one.) I promise, though, that that is the only time I used the dictionary during this post. Otherwise, I used the auto-grammar-check to fix every misspelling of "Separate" I made. I even misspelled it in the previous sentence, along with "Misspelled" I misspelled now three times in this sentence. I need to calm down. I should stop now. I'm sure there is a word limit to these things and this post has nothing to do with Math. Sorry about this.

Yes, Calc II can be a hard class -- it was for me. (Actually, it was my first hard class other than a language class.)

Re: My introduction

Don't worry about all the rambling - a few of us moderators have installed breathalyzers on our computers that (in theory) keep us from getting too crazy after too many [hours without sleep, etc]
Calc II = too much information in one class!

Re: My introduction

Hello and welcome!

Rambling is fine, especially in your introduction, as long as it's coherent, which you were.
