My name is Paul Baker and I am in the Monday/Wednesday English 1109 class. I am 25 years old and this is my second attempt at college. My first attempt was seven years ago when I was 18, when I attended Eastern Kentucky University for a semester and a "half." I dropped out before midterms of my second semester, to avoid getting a bunch of failing grades on my record, and enlisted in the Navy, where I served as a Corpsman (medic) with the Marines for five years. Now, I'm out and going to school for free, which is a pretty good deal.
