back to schoolPosted: September 9, 2011
First thing I think of:
I’ve got my lunch packed up.
My boots tied tight.
I hope I don’t get in a fight (which I guarantee you I did not!).
Although, I would also add to the song, “I got my bank account drained,” because that’s exactly what university does to you! I swear the university violated me and my wallet today. Everything they can make a cost out of (hello goggles and lab coat!), they will. No bitterness detected…
Ohhhhh, back to school. Back to school…
All in all, it was a frustrating, but good day. I hate new situations with a passion (grandma alert, I know), so learning a new campus was not fun for me at all. Oh well, I made it to my classes with a few small mutters under my breath – and hey, now I know where I’m going (to those classes, at least). And, I seriously feel like the mama bear, especially in my first year class, where the prof started off the lecture with, “this is a lot different than high school.” Way to age me prof, way to age me.
I’ll be back at ya tomorrow with some school goals and my school must haves. Have a great Friday evening – I know I did with this hunk!
Question of the day:
How do you feel about new situations? What is your opinion on going back to school as a mature adult (read: married and boring)?
