Last Saturday I moved into my dorm. This Saturday, I sit here freezing in my icebox of a room (which I love, of course) after a nice day at the barn. Classes started this past Wednesday. I've already been rained on practically each day since I've been here. I was caught outside one afternoon without a rain jacket. That was awesome and not awesome all at the same time.
Of the many many things that I am thankful for about the start of this new school year, I think right now this is number one:
I'm thankful for God giving humankind the ideas, the creativity, the tools, and the resources that we then used to create wonderful things. Sending us to the moon, crazy accurate machines used in major surgeries, highways that connect people, and STAIRS.
As I suspected, my class load will be very difficult, but most of them are very interesting. I look forward to the knowledge that lays ahead, but I'm also terrified of the difficulty. I did drop my Medieval Studies class (which I will take in a different semester) so that I could take a Communications and Information class. I'm taking CCI 150 because it is a prerequisite for another communications class, which is also a prerequisite for basically everything else in the college of communications.
I like to keep all of my options open. In the event that geology doesn't work out, I've also considered being a communication studies major. We'll see. I've also entertained the idea of double majoring. Ha!
So here's to a new school year. Buena suerte!
