So in T minus 4 days I will be a full time student again, nurse, mommy, and wife. YIKES. I do love a busy week and I'm bound to get what I ask for. I saw my sister today and she said something that I'm going to have to repeat to myself over and over...one day at a time. Maybe that will be my mantra. Kevin is very supportive and Sloan is probably more excited than I am. She found out I was taking Pre-calculus and decided she will be my tutor because math "is my favorite subject and I'm really good in it". Which is really true, she is good in math but her math only has consisted of addition and subtraction of double numbers, counting by 1's, 2's, 5's and 10's and some fractions. So, maybe I'll find a supplemental tutor elsewhere? Kevin is hoping that in my *free time* I'll have time to find a cute little sorority and "pledge". hmmmm...probably not, actually all his friends are really hoping this happens due to their perpetual singleness. So ironically I am not taking a Spanish class this semester for many reasons, first....it wasn't available (apparently I enrolled late-shocker), and secondly the first 2 cl assess I need to take that are considered "basics" are M-F for an hour, which does NOT work with my work schedule or Kevin's for that matter. To make a long story short....hopefully summer 1 and summer 2 will be when I'll get to take these....which will then open up the magical portal into my degree plan. My ultimate goal by the way is to be bilingual.
So the classes I am enrolled in for this semester (which are required for my degree plan) are Classical Mythology, pre-calculus, American literature, and earth science. I also have to take the mandatory chapel class. So all in all a total of 12 hours plus chapel. I have gotten my books. I am very excited about the mythology and American literature. The required reading books piqued my interest, so I have that going for me. I cringed when I opened the math book, well, honestly, my eyes filled with tears. Kaleb is already on my speed dial and a system has been initiated for questions and a calculator is on its way (hopefully). Kaleb seems a bit nervous for me and offered a prayer for me when I said this " calculus doesn't involve graphs does it". Apparently, it does. My calculator I got as a freebie is unworthy anymore, I need more buttons.
So books, check...all school supplies bought. I went on a "dry" run today on Baylor's campus to kind of see where my classess are in respect to the next and the next, you know to see how far / close everything will be. I have only found 2 of my class buildings, some poor stranger is going to be bothered come Monday. Also, I saw that a cold front is expected with rain on Monday-perfect. Why not. I'm obviously very nervous! I told Kevin my biggest fear is that I'm going to be the one in class no one wants to be partners with due to the constant disheveled look/I just worked 36 hours in a row look/ I may or may not be in the right room look. I'll let you know how my first week goes hopefully before the semester is finished!
