Yippee! After a too-long, two-month winter break I have finally started back to school. The new semester began on Monday with classes starting yesterday, but since I don’t have classes on Wednesday, I only got back to the classroom today. And it was fun!
OK, fun might not be the right word, but I really did enjoy it. And I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s class, too.
And back to school means dusting off the school supplies!
So I’ve got fresh ink in my printer (it ran dry when printing course materials earlier in the week) and a couple of new notebooks for jotting down thoughts when I’m not able to type them out. I also have plenty of Post-Its and page flags for marking pages and taking notes when I’m reading, and highlighters for highlighting course notes and handouts. (I rarely use highlighters or pens in books – that’s a bad thing to do!)
And, of course, I’ve got Little Green, my super-fantastic netbook that I take to class with me. It really is the sign of the modern era, because in my undergraduate studies I had a desktop and laptop computer, but certainly wouldn’t have lugged something to class with me. Now, I power up at the start of each class and I search out further information on the spot (then bookmark the websites for later review).
Oh, and I have some textbooks, too. I’ll tell you more about them later.
Yeah, I’m pretty excited to be back at school. And once I’ve attended each of my four classes I will tell you a bit about them – because I know you want to know! For now, I have some reading to do for tomorrow’s class so I need to sign off.
But not before I remind you to enter the anniversary competition that I posted yesterday. I’ve really enjoyed the entries so far and would love to be entertained with a few more! (Don’t be shy!)
