My First Day of School
So this was me on my first ever day of school. Note what were the important things to bring: glue, pencils, and a Tom and Jerry book.
Tomorrow is my first day of school since '99 (not counting the few easy classes I took after graduation just for fun). I will be taking a class at a big public university for the first time. Yesterday I went to sign up and it was crazy (do have to admit though- they know how to run the bookstore- remember those hour long waits in the bookstore the days before school starts- this school has roughly 20 thousand plus undergrads and I was in line for three minutes). I didn't know where anything was and very really old and dumb. I was wearing the wrong clothes (I had come straight from work) and everyone was listening to an IPod (do I have to remind you of the tape deck in my car?). I stuck out like a sore thumb. Especially when the sorority girls walked by. I am not sure what part of the rushing ritual I witnessed, not really knowing much about the Greek system myself, but there were about six different groups of girls all dressed up in fancy dresses walking around campus.
So, I'm nervous. Hopefully I will do everything right. I hope I find the right classroom. I hope my teacher likes me. I hope I find someone to eat lunch with. Okay so not the last part.
