|First Day of School
||[Jan. 23rd, 2006|05:02 pm]
Today was fairly awesome.
I'm not drained, as I expected I would be. Not having 8am classes might be contributing to that. :-)
I saw Lesley and Julie and I must have squeeled. We had lunch togeather, + Rebecca, who I don't know as well, but is Julie's roommate and is fairly nifty.
All of my professors seem awesome (so far) and the subject matter is all interesting. We've already learned stuff (on the first day!) in my CORE class (Content Area Reading for Grades 5-12) and the professor actually teaches at the grad school. He seems good. He handled us being all giggly and me being, well, me. I can be a total brat in class. It is sad Gary isn't in there though :(
The only downside of my school day was that security is saying I'll probably NOT get a parking pass for main campus because I live in Arlington. They have been known to turn down people who need to park on campus for medical reasons before. Meh. I'll figure something out if they deny me.
I didn't buy books today, will do that tomorrow when I'm at Porter. So no homework yet tonight.
I forget how much I love being in classes.
My Economics professor wants us to read the Wall Street Journal and The Economist!!! And was pleased that I knew how much houses in Eastern Mass go for (and wasn't too surprised that I was the only one. I was. How do people not KNOW this stuff?) He wants us to keep abreast of current Economic issues, so listening to Marketplace on WBUR counts as Homework. :-)
