Today is the last first day.
(I also said this my senior year of high school… and I’m sure I’ll say this the first day of spring semester.)
But, really. This is IT.
I’ve been trying to wrap my brain around the whole Real World right around the corner situation all summer long, and have yet to really come to terms with it. Anyone who has had the pleasure (ha) to know me for more than a year or so knows that I have a lot of issues with how our education system works and is run. Here I am, my whole life I’ve been “a student.” I have one more year of studentship.
I feel like I’m ready.
Whether I like it or not though, I still have to get through one more (tough) year.
Soccer Mom and Dad helped me so much moving in (who knew moving in during a hurricane would actually be a blessing…. tons of parking, cooler weather, not a lot of other movers). They did get “stranded” in D.C. for an extra day because of flight cancelations, but it was really fun to get 24 more hours with them.
Soccer Mom bought me this Dogeared necklace, and I love it so much. I’ve been looking for a replacement one all summer and couldn’t find one that “fit” me. Stumbling across this on M St. was totally like a sign.
This year I’m taking five classes and I am a TA for another.
Who’s started school already? How’d your first days go?
