Why Oceanography?

Why take Oceanography? Here is the quick list, from the artistic side:


1. love of ocean means learning something that should already be interesting
2. flexibility of choosing ANY college credit course but
3. limited to what is provided by the local college online (no art history)
4. extra credit involves snorkeling and I adore swimming
5. textbook has cool photos and graphics
6. influence next art works 
7. local college does not have JJ as a professor (he teaches writing)


As for why take college courses at all, well, it is a requirement to maintain a teaching certificate in Florida while not working in any school system. My mantra: "It is easier to maintain the certificate than later regret allowing it to lapse." 



First week of college credit course Oceanography is done! One chapter of a dozen completed. Goal is to pass with at least a C. I used to go always for the A and be hugely disappointed without it...but my life is not about pursuing another degree.

If my life were about pursuing another degree, this classes would not be taken at the local college!  



There you have it - all the reasons to take Oceanography.

Angeline,

You answered the question I had, but had not gotten around to ask you. I can now see why....makes sense.

Thanks,
Rosie

I think if I had to take a non art related class Oceanography would be at the top of my list. I am sure inspiration will find you working and we will se the results through art soon enough!
