You know that feeling you get at the beginning of the school year? Like you're five and it's your first day of Kindergarten all over again, and you can't wait for it to start?
Well, that feeling is gone, because of course it is fleeting - it only lasts through the first twenty minutes or so of your first class before listening to the Professor discuss the syllabus gets boring, and your turn to introduce yourself to everyone ("Hi, I'm Kiersten. I'm a sophomore with a major in English and a minor in Journalism.") has already passed.
But after that first excitement fades, and you realize that unlike kindergarten, History 150 and Computer Science are going to require far more work than memorizing the alphabet did, comes the real excitement. The anticipation that follows the end of the first day of classes, when the next day holds the promise of actually learning something, and maybe even an assignment or two!
Or is it just me?
Either way, tomorrow marks the first actual day of class. On Monday, all of my professors simply explained their expectations for us that semester and, for the smaller classes, had everyone introduce themselves. Tomorrow, we'll start learning. We'll break in the new notebooks and pens, and write a couple of assignments in our agenda books. And, maybe I'm just crazy, but I'm excited.
How about you, Friends? Are any of you starting a new semester at school? Tell me all about it!!
