Talking new member :)


hi all, newbie to linux; primarily using xubuntu at the moment...trying to learn what i can, interesting so far! Currently using a netbook until my laptop is repaired---although, from here out, at minimum, I will have dual-boot machines only! (very few little things to even keep windows--just for small bit of their functionality ) hope to meet some friendly, knowledgeable ppl willing to point a newb in the right direction.Personal info-- I am a registered nurse; went back to college for a dbl in cs/mathematics; didn't get to finish (I hate not finishing things! (personal pet peeve)) as I became pregnant, had my daughter, and have since stayed home to care for her. Recently my dd and I made a much needed break for freedom--wished i wasn't becoming a statistic; however, remaining married to my husband is not an option I am willing to take....enough about the new stranger...let's learn!!! (BTW..I am one of those ppl who just would love to be a professional student...I love learning just about anything

That's the reason I dislike children, they are a responsibility,
which you can never get off with! And its the women only who have
to bear the brunt. Of course we can have those baby sitters and all
but then we may feel guilty of shifting the responsibility to
untrustworthy hands! P.S. Welcome to LQ

Wink misconception??

just in cause there was a misconception in my intro post....my daughter was an unexpected surprise; BUT she is the single most wonderful thing in my entire life that i have ever had a hand in creating...yes, i would LOVE to have finished my degrees, but i would not trade that, or anything else for the gift i was given....she gives me purpose, drive, and a heart that could almost burst with a type of love i had never known before her.....and there is something so unique and special about seeing soo much of yourself in your child(ren)...she's definitely a 'mini-me'; she is very young, but already possesses a soul that is all loving, caring, inquisitive, intelligent, and beautiful to the core....i did not mean to sound as if i was begrudged bc i became pregnant and did not finish...as for babysitters/daycares/etc...i have ALWAYS planned that if/when i had a child (or children) that i would be the one to provide their care, as i am sure that i am much more concerned with her safety and well-being, as well as her development into a healthy, happy, productive citizen..so i apologize if my post came off in a way i did not intend...and as for the responsibility aspect? i feel more like i have been entrusted with a blessing rather than a responsibility....i hope that one day (if u were to be ready), that u may also experience the joy that a child brings into your life...the joy, pride, love, laughter,acceptance,and too much else to mention...and i am extremely grateful for my huge surprise almost 3 years ago....again, she is far more precious to me than anything conceivable....sorry for the rambling, thanks for reading all!!! hope everyone enjoys their weekend!!!!

Thats just what i feel about learning. Sometimes i think how fine it would be to live long enough to study all those fascinating scientific study courses.
