My old thermodynamics instructor finally threw in the towel & retired now that she is 77 years old. I thought the girl would never retire despite the fact that I know she would had enough of teaching the abstract class at my old UF school. It is funny because the mascot for our school is the gator & this thermo instructor’s last name is Gater, no joke. That was the toughest engineering class that I had to take & I still don’t entirely know what it was all about. Calculus was disappointing enough, however thermo is a whole bizarre level of confusion. Heating & cooling systems is what the class was all about, dealing with refrigeration & entropy, my good friend and I even had to endure a second class of it once my good friend and I survived the first class. I don’t feel I would ever use what I learned from that class in a million years & am not sure why they gave it to us. My local business associate tried taking the class & quit engineering after failing the class three times, cooling down her plans to be an engineer like I was in The Valley in Cali. I only worked there a few years till I figured out that engineering wasn’t for me. I could still be there now, building heating & cooling component for commercial businesses & hating every minute of it. My old friends there used to count down the months & years till retirement, something which seems so deranged for me. The HVAC business where I labor now is much more fun than the old HVAC system engineering gig.
