Well, my life changing decision to go back to school has kicked my reality in the ass. Today is the day, I go mingle with other newbie education graduate students. Luckily for me, I will know some of the staff as I was a very tenacious work-study during my last tenure at the University Of Colorado, a decade ago.
This time around my experience is a tad bit different. I have to pick up Sj from school, drop her back home with my parents, and then run off to campus. I still haven't gotten my student id, and HELLO I am dying for a movie discount or a free bus ride. I won't be a leisurely stroll from campus, speaking of which, where in the world am I going to park?
And believe it or not, I might kinda forget where the EDUC building is. I suppose pregnancy and nursing did me in as far as remembering things like locations of buildings on campus. If I have time after my meet and greet, with some a short advising session, I'm gonna hit the bookstore. One class, one hundred dollars worth of books, gulp. Maybe I'll ask for a grant from my Mom to float me. Umm, just kidding, I am thirty something. No, I'm not, hope she'll hand over the visa.
Now, I am off. I won't go into the details of how I am a bit nervous. I didn't stay up late planning my outfit, I am simply going with the flow. Lucky for me, I don't need to impress the others. Hopefully, they'll accept me for who I am. That's college the second time around, which feels good.
