In 10 years!
and what a change!
I had my first evening of classes yesterday. I had gotten myself into a major panic over absolutely silly things. I couldn’t find my student ID # so I couldn’t print out my schedule so I didn’t know what books I needed or where to go for class. I got myself all worked up before I remembered that my student ID card probably contained my student ID #. Then I worried that 2 hours was not enough time to park and buy books. Yeah, I was done by 5:30 and class wasn’t until 7. The only logical panic would have been that the ex did not take my daughter but even that went without a hitch. It was a lovely cool day out so I found a little spot to knit for an hour before I went to class. Honestly, since it is a commuter campus, it is set up so that you really can get everything you need right there. I think I may just go after work on Wednesday evenings and study till class starts.
The class itself will be difficult, it is all English poetry. He is a demanding professor but I got a good impression of him right from the start and enthusiasm from the prof makes difficult subjects go much better. There will be a quiz each class and 3 large exams. Class participation is a large part of the grade so I will have to lose my observation tendencies and get in the game. Oh….and my ability to concentrate? Class goes almost 3 hours and I had no issue whatsoever paying attention the entire time. Let’s hope it stays that way! I bought a used book but I think I will have to return it and spend the extra on a new book. Scanning poems that someone has already scanned is just confusing to me. I think the extra $20 is a good investment in this case.
Stay tuned for my bonehead car moment….
