Back to School

"Oh back to school Back to school To prove to dad that I'm not a fool. I've got my lunch packed up, My boots tied tight, I hope I don't get in a fight! Ohhhhhh back to school."

(Hehe. I watched Billy Madison about 100 times one summer when I was about 12 years old.)

Well, school officially starts for me on Monday. I had an anthropology workshop class for two weeks at the beginning of August, but going to campus to listen to and talk about rock and blues music for about 4 hours per day doesn't really count as real school to me. :)

This semester I am finally at the point where all of the classes I am taking actually pertain to my major and minor. I'm taking 4 psychology classes (developmental, personality, abnormal, and human sexuality) and another anthropology class (ancient mesoamerica) to count toward my minor. I have about a 30 minute commute each way, so to preserve gas and money, I had my advisor help me schedule all of my classes into two days per week - Monday and Wednesday. The bad thing about this set up is that on Monday I will have class for nine hours, back-to-back. Eek! Thank goodness I'm taking classes I'm interested in!

Brendan starts his classes on September 3rd. At the moment we are both still sharing the trusty Saturn, so we're going to have to try to figure out who gets to drop off and pick up who until good ol' financial aid comes in. (And believe me, they will take their sweet time getting financial aid to you.) This means that for a few weeks, I'm probably going to have to be at my campus for eleven hours per day on Mondays. Yikes.

Overall, I am excited about this semester. Interesting classes, beatiful new campus, nicer living arrangements. I suppose I don't have much to complain about for a while. :)

Your classes sound so interesting! It makes me want to go back to school! LOL I've just spent about 15 minutes playing your neato rice game. I may have to get one of those!
