Well, school started last week. I'd like to tell you that I'm really excited...but I'm honestly not. I mean, so far my teachers all seem very nice and fairly flexable, so that's all fine and dandy. The hesitation I have is with the schedule. I've gotten so spoiled with being able to schedule all my classes in 2 days, back to back, with minimal disturbance to my work schedule...and then last semester I had school on only 1 day! That was nice! :-) But this semester I have to leave work early and head to school 4 days a week! 4!!! Sick and wrong. But it's not too bad, I guess, especially since I mangaed to convince a cute, young, male teacher to add me to his already full class, which allowed me to drop the class taught by the horribly, mean, woman teacher (who's class I dropped last semester because she was unwilling to let me take the final on a different day, even though she'd changed her final date from that set by the school); or the fact that 2 of my classes use the same book, therefore saving me hundreds of dollars (...even though it means I will be attending the same class twice just because my anal department doesn't accept classes from different departments. ...How much trouble would I get in for filling their offices with baccon milkshake?) And thus far, the classes seem to be fairly simple contentwise, even though they will all require a lot of (busy) work. ...You know what? I've just made an important decision--I'll have to go do some planning. Sorry to rant and run, but...I'm gonna!
