Kathy Schrock tagged me yesterday before I could even finish writing my 5 things! As I sat down this morning to read my bloglines, I discovered that Lucy Gray had not been tagged, so I am tagging her.
I was amused to see that Will Richardson mentioned as one of his five things that he knows he is a descendant of William Bradford. I am also a Mayflower descendant but to John Alden, George Soule and John Howland. If you have one line to a Pilgrim you probably have more.
2. As an undergraduate, I technically failed a required course twice which is probably still considered a "no-no". The course was Organic Chemistry and I sucessfully passed it when given a chance to take it at a different college. Lesson learned? The teacher matters. It was departmental policy to give a standarized test covering both semesters at the end. Probably, this was so science people could focus on research not teaching. The sixties was a terrible time. I learned so much more with my Master's degree!
