It's School Time Again

School will be starting up again, and even though it has been rainy, the weather is starting to feel like Fall. I have been cramming to finish books I have to read for my new classes, which has been difficult as I have a lot of personal reading I'd like to get done.

The problem with assigned reading is, even if the book is good, it still has been "injected" into your reading list instead of getting there "organically." :D Those books on my list have to fight for their position on the "to be read" list and they can be carelessly shoved out of the way by an assigned book.

I've been busy trying to get all of my school things together and out of the way before the stress of classes starts. I still have a lot of school stuff to buy and my temperamental internet hasn't been working because of all of the storms.  A lot of people do "spring cleaning" but I always do my heavy cleaning right before classes start so I don't have as much distraction from my work. My schedule this semester is kind of crazy and it seems I will be spending more time traveling to class than in class. Right now is a hectic time for everyone but I can't wait to see everyone in the next coming months. 

P.S. I am pressing "publish" before my internet decides to stop working again.

  1. I feel your pain! I'm running around like a mad woman trying to pack up everything, practice my marching band music, and finish my summer homework. And I leave on Saturday. I'm getting more that a little nervous haha! I hope everything gets less stressful for you, especially the spotty internet. The internet not working can be a real pain. Good luck! :)

  2. I am surprised as an English major we're not given summer reading assignments. That makes me sad. :(

    I can't believe school is 12 days away. I get a week of rest after my vacation. This summer went by too fast.

  3. I'm really excited for my classes and reading my books as well! Glad I'm not the only Great Big Nerd who reads the books ahead of time. It really helps that they are largely novels of the 18th century ;)

    Good luck in your classes!

  4. Will I get to see you at work at all, being that you're so busy? Best wishes for a good fall semester.

  5. Thanks everyone! The beginning of school always makes me anxious and three months from now, I will wish it was summer again.

    Jodi, I don't think so. I have class every day. I'm sure we'll see each other at special events and things, though.
