It’s been more than two years since I finished my last final exam and I thought then I’d be done with school forever. Life, however, has a way of maneuvering down strange roads that eventually led me back to…school. It’s the same in that it’s different. I’ve had a long enough break to take this on as something new. I’ve learned plenty during this long break, things that aren’t taught in school. I’m sure I’m well prepared and yet, I feel a sense of unfamiliarity. Something’s amiss. I can’t put it in words. It’s weird. In any case, I am excited and nervous about grad school. I shall see what it really is like tomorrow.
**8/31 – Tuesday
Well, at least I survived the first day. It’s only going to get harder from here on out. LOTS of reading and homework. I took too long of a break and got out of the habit of preparing for class and all that. Now I have to get back into it. It’s going to be fun though because my linguistic classes are right up in my alley and so interesting. The professor has a good sense of humor and that helps. In order to feel better and get “everything” out of my system, I’m going to scream: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
