Yaay! It's Sept. 1st! Apart from being the birthday of one of my most favourite people in the entire world (and if you're wondering who, the answer is buried in a previous blog post), it's also symbolic in other ways... Summer seems to be over. Sigh… Sadly, a few leaves have already begun to drop from the trees in Calgary... I’m actually sad to see the end of our ever-so-short summer but it does mean, of course, that school is just around the corner.
Most people my age worry about getting their kids ready for school. I have none of those, but I am busy getting myself ready for life as a student again.
I haven't been a student in years. Years! But this fall, I'm excited because I'm starting a Ph.D. (Catch me in November; I'll probably wonder why I even applied... But for now, I'm energized!)
I swing back and forth between thinking that I really must be crazy and having this almost-hyper tingly feeling inside, somewhat akin to being in love… but not exactly (that would just be weird!)
I have all the essential school supplies… laptop, iPod, a few new clothes, and of course, my text books (yes, we still have to read books!) Hhhmmm... I think there's something I've forgotten, but can't think of what it could be?
Yaay! I can’t believe I’m going back to school. Woo hoo! (Such a geek… I know!)
