A Grateful Heart and School Supplies
If you are reading this between 8:30 am and 2:00 pm Central time, I am sitting in my first classes since 2005 (eep!). Psychology 101 and History 101. I read the first chapter in my Psychology book over the weekend, because I want to at least pretend to be totally prepared. I'm not terribly worried about my history class, but I guess we'll just have to see how things go.
Right now I'm just grateful I am able to go back to school. It's always been a dream of mine to finish my education and I'm glad I changed my mind about my major. At first I was going to get a BA in Business, but after doing some research and was really honest with myself I choose to pursue a BA in Psychology with a minor in English.
With my minor I'm hoping to take some creative writing classes. Then I can put on a better show for you guys here on the blog. But mostly because I've always enjoyed writing and it's been a fantastic creative outlet for me since grade school.
My favorite part about going back to school, even when I younger, was shopping. New pens, new notebooks, highlighters, post-its, index cards! I have a weird obsession with office supplies, especially now because they sell purple pens by the box! Philip surprised me yesterday when he ordered me an all-in-one printer. Now I won't have to go to his parent's house or the library to print things. AND I'll be able so scan all my TBT pictures in all at one time!
I'm looking forward to being able to get out of the house and be productive. And I'm also grateful for my first real opportunity to make some friends here. I miss having a social life, even the little one I managed to keep when I was in Georgia. Adult interaction is always welcome.
I promise to give you guys an update on my first day of school later this week!
How are you starting June? What are you grateful for?
