Relearning Middle School Math...

Well, lucky for me, I have a firm grasp of some of the more basic parts of math. Today we learned that if you have 104,893 apples, and you wanted to round it up to the nearest thousand apples, it'd be 105,000 apples. Whew, glad I studied. Coming off of a 12 hour overnight shift and going straight into a math class that taught me that 2 is what's called an "even number" was about enough to make me want to revert back to my high school days of "enter room, sit, head on desk, sleep..." I'm hoping my classes tomorrow will better put me in the college spirit of learning.

Work has been fairly busy, with a fatal pedestrian struck accident the other night, and having the paramedics on one of our rescue squads threatened with a shotgun last night. Otherwise it's just been the normal morons getting arrested for being stupid.
