1st day of my junior year

I guess technically, I’m a junior in college, albeit a 31 year old junior. Happily, since my class is on a Sunday, it’s filled with others my own age, and older, so I didn’t feel too out of place. In fact, there’s a 47 year old woman in my class who will graduate in May…I definitely don’t feel too old to be in school!

I’ve already got a paper to write, which is due when we meet again in 2 weeks. I’m not sure when I’m going to cram that in, given that I’m heading out of town in a few days for a whole week. I do all of my best work at the last minute, so I’m not worried. The first paper is a short one, but then the 2nd (and last) paper has to be 3,000 + words. A few years ago, that would have loomed over me like a death sentence, but since I can easily blog 1,000 words on a mundane topic, I’m not worried at all.

Jim and I met during the break between classes and went to the bookstore and such before parting ways – he had another class, and I got to head home to veg out.
