HI my name is Tiffany, I live in whittier. I am a dance major and plan to get my masters degree so i can teach dance at colleges/universities. I am taking this online class because i am currently taking 23 units this semester, and the less time i have to spend on campus the better. My hobbies are Dancing (of course), singing, football,movies, church, and hanging w/friends. mY favorite book is "wait for me" by rebecca st. james and i listen to THE FISH, KIIS and only a few songs i can handle on KZLA. icon_wink.gif

Greetings, my name is Edel Hsieh, I am from Diamond Bar. My major is Business Adminstration, and I am on my way to get my Bachlors. I was originally a Electronic engineering major, but switched to something I really look forward to. I took a oceanography class in high school and found it very interesting and wanted to continue in this subject. Another reason that I am taking this course is because there is no parking at school, and if you do find parking, you have to walk a marathon to class. My hobbies include playing basketball, weight lifting, plinking at the local firing range and keeping up on computer/electronic news. I rarely watch movies and find books/magazines more entertaining. icon_lol.gif

My name is Sheila and I currently reside in Yorba Linda. I moved here in 1999, from Northern California with my husband and three children. I have been a stay at home mom for many years and went to work as a special education aide 4 years ago. It has always been my desire to go back to school and get my degree and with the current push to educate everyone working with children, I have been given the final push. I love spending time with my family and friends and in my free time I enjoy reading (especially christian books). I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge from this course with my kids in my class as well as my own family. icon_smile.gif

Hi Tiffany in Whittier! I enjoyed reading your profile and I too have an interest in dance, as my 9 year old daughter dances about 11 hours per week, which means I spend a lot of time at the studio! What kind of dance do you enjoy most? Do you compete? How long have you been dancing? With 23 units, I am sure you have your work cut out for you, but best of luck to you! I too like Rebecca st. James and LOVE THE FISH! Good luck to you!

Good Evening Edel. It sounds to me like you are a very focused and pioneering student. I have not ever taken an oceanography class before, but I thought it would be a great place to start since spending time with my family is one of my favorite things to do and spending time at the (beach) ocean is one of all of our favorite things to do. Good Luck to you in your studies, and in the future instead of becoming frustrated over the walk, look at it as taking care of your cardio work out for the day! icon_lol.gif

Hello to everyone. I currently live in La Habra, but have lived in Orange County most of my life. My major is psychology, and hopefully minor in international business. Like edel, I also took an ocean class and found really cool. I wanted to learn more about it, and I am taking the lab, too. I don't know what to expect yet from the teacher. I guess just fairness and consistency. Whenever I'm not at school, I am at work or hanging out with my roommates. I go to movies, read, go to clubs, venues, and just hang out with my buddies. I usually listen to rock, hip-hop, r&b, punk, a lil pop ( it's danceable), and a tiny bit of country( my roomies).

My name is Gail and I'm from Placentia. I am majoring in Accounting. I am a mom of 5 (only 1 has left the roost), and love these telecourses that let me work from home. I am interested in learning new things, and Oceanography is definitely new to me. I appreciate Dr. C's clear instructions because I am computer-challenged. I like to read and see movies, but have very little spare time, so I read textbooks, my Bible and whatever my kids read. As far as hobbies, I am a Girl Scout leader (Daisies and Brownies) and sell Tupperware. I think I'm going to learn as much about using my computer as I am about the ocean. Sounds like fun. My only experience with the ocean is sailing on our Columbia 22 to Catalina when I was a kid, and loving it. Good luck to us all[/list]

Hi Tiffany,

My husband and I listen to the FISH also, and I have 2 CDs of Rebecca St. James, but I didn't know she wrote a book. I wish you the best in your career, and in handling 23 units. Take Care.

God bless.

Gail

Hi Sheila,

I think we have a lot in common. I've been taking classes off and on since leaving USC in 1981, while sometimes working, and now being a stay at home mom. Like you, my family is just as interested in this class as I am. My stepdad and 16 year old wanted to take it too, but couldn't. I'm a Christian too for 11 years now. I wish you the best in this class and in your work.

God bless

Hi Everybody! My name is Kimberly and I am a full-time student at Fullerton College and I am in my 4th semester. I live in La Mirada and have lived here for all 19 years of my life. After finishing college I plan on becomming a Kindegarden teacher. I love the going to the beach to surf, going to the Colorado River to wakeboard and going to Big Bear to snowboard. If its fun or in the sun... its me! This is my first teleweb course, I am looking forward to it. I work at State Farm Insurance and have been there for about 4 1/2 years, just recently I became a sales specialist. Well, GOOD LUCK to all of you and if there is anything that I might be able to help you with just holla! icon_biggrin.gif

Oh, my favorite movies are, Blue Crush and A Walk to Remember!

This is my all time favorite quote:

Wow Tiffany! 23 units... I thought that I had a full load with 15 units. Good luck with those classes. So your not a fan of KZLA...huh? I love KZLA. I can't say that I have ever listened to the FISH, but I do like KIIS, POWER106, and KROQ I just started listening to lately. icon_biggrin.gif My "little sister" loves dancing also, she is in Jazz, Tap and Ballet right now. She loves it!
------------------------
Luv, Kimberly
