The boyz ripping along at 95%+ for theoretical physics after a few assignments  :shock:
Other subjects are running at upper 60's, lower 70's, but he says it's a learning curve wrt required assignment formats.
One good one out of 4, with the other 3 improving, is good... with only 1 month into uni.

Shyt I'm getting excited.. from planes to space planes.  :icon_mrgreen:

I think he's forming a chip off the old block..  :redface:

On numerous occasions in lectures they've been given options and have to explain their choices.
He says that when he explains his choices everyone else looks at him if he's nutz... but the lecturers say he is correct.  :shock:

I've always encouraged the kids to trust their instincts, no matter what the world thinks.. so maybe this is working for the greater good.

Van,

Sounds like a smart kid, a lack of herd instinct is a true virtue. I would not encourage him to go to West New Guinea having watched a few docos on flying there, some of those airstrips on mountain tops would be hard for a helicopter pilot to land on let alone a conventional aircraft.

I think it's a mixture of smart and hard work.

He looks very tired, but hammering away at his work.
We're bringing him home for a little break and home study time - A refresher of sorts.

He does sound a bit homesick, but this is natural for first time away, and we always knew he would have to come back for Xmas.
He'll go back 're-energised' for 1st semester exams.

Shame.. he's had to learn to cook, wash and clean, all the while studying in a high stress environment - looks like he's handling it well though.

Arrived home, via Paris, late last night... looking better than when we left him 4 months ago  :shock:
Mom's tired and very happy -  a full house.. and Dad's chasing them into the global village  :biggrin:

A good braai (Barbie) today, family ..etc and even better news on his student network.. 96% on the last assignment.

I'm all for the merit system  ;)

> he's had to learn to cook, wash and clean
That sounds very familiar to me  :biggrin: When I entered the university, I shared a flat with some friends, one of them and I decided to make lunch together. The first week was up to him and he decided to make white beans, a meal I always hated, but the important thing was goodwill, you know. The problem is that he did not take into account the need to soak them the night before. Sure, the next day they were super hard and had to renew the water ... I do not know how many times. Well, as you can see he did not pay much attention to the physics class, he decided to pour salt every time he renewed the water ... What can I say, they finally burned and even when we tried to sink our teeth to it, they were super salty and super burned. Nothing, we had to grab the fridge and make a sandwich. That was our first foray into culinary themes.

Van,

Sheer necessity will make him a better cook, I am a truly lousy cook (my main experience is with an oxy torch welding) but if you want to eat, you learn how to make things you can eat. I am lucky here as a I have a stone age stomach that does not like anything fancy so I only need to produce simple things.

ahh cooking,never been much of a fancy cook,mainly Microwave stuff,BUT the navy taught me to be more organized ans because I worked in the laundry, learned about washing cloths.also dry cleaning,ans cutting hair,got so good at that everyone wanted me to do their hair. was popular because I ran the vending machines. Ships service was also at times also referred to as ships Mafia( Guess why)we always were first in the chow line

And got favors with the chief of dispersing(money) because I did his uniform special.always good to have a few I owe you ones from people

Navy taught me many things that have helped me throughout life.

We were forced into military and learned fast, I give it that complete credit, and will never regret it - it taught you to stop whinging and handle the situation.

We taught the kids how to cook from when they were 12/13 years and involved them in many household 'duties'.
It was always 'fun' and disasters.. but 'we learnt from that', the basic essentials of veggies, meat and pasta, fruit,..etc.. plus a bit of imagination  :t
This was his true test of culinary expertise.. and he looks to have surpassed it, for his requirements.. that is.  :icon_exclaim:

I look back now, and think what a paranoid 'prick' I was.. but with hindsight.. Ja.. it was time well spent.. oh yeah!!  :t

That's pretty cool. Good way to involve youngs in real things of life.  :icon14:
