Remember how excited you were on that first day of school? You had your new clothes, and your super cool backpack. your lunchbox, and your favorite lunch (whatever mom wanted you to have). Well, apparently that excitement is only there as a kid.
Today is my first day of fall semester for grad school and L’s first teaching day. Neither of us are excited about it. I don’t have my books yet (as always!), and L is nervous about it as if its her first day of teaching. She has been doing this for 4 or 5 years but she still gets really worked up.
I feel really bad because I try to calm her down but then I get frustrated because she gets really worked up about things that I think are not worth getting so about. I mean, I can admit that I don’t like being ill prepared either for things, but at the same time, I know that I will never do a bad job no matter what the situation. I am not very prepared for this semester as of right now, but I know I will do well. I mean, I don’t have much of a choice I don’t think.
I just priced out my books….200 dollars!!! Easily the worst part of this whole advance your life experience.
Well, Terps won! And I am off Friday, so things are looking up…I’m just worried about L. I hope today goes well for her!
