I be gettin’ smart-ed

My classes started today.

ugh…I thought I was ready, I wasn’t.

In 2009 I bit the bullet and headed back to the books to try and get a degree.  The school I was attending in Alabama was a small community college.  Itty bitty, really.  It was the only school in the state that had a program for American Sign Language.

The pickens were slim.

I liked it.  It didn’t offer a lot, but it was a small pond and I was emerging as a big fish.  The classes were not demanding and the instructors had  low expectations.

I breezed through.

What I wouldn’t give to be back there!

The college I’m attending now is a far cry from that little community college in Alabama.  It’s a “real” school.  It has dorms and dining rooms.  My classes are full of 18 year old young’ns.  I stick out.  I’m intimidated.  I’m getting the education I’m paying for.
Maybe it’s just the first day blues. … maybe it’s the fact that I’ve already got a stack of things to read tonight…a paper due…homework…notes to copy…syllabuses to print….ack…

Maybe I just got really lazy during my year off.  I learned to like a low key schedule.  I didn’t work, I didn’t go to school, I enjoyed it.

I know I’ll get into the swing of things before I know it.

I also know this semester is going to zoom by and I’ll be finishing up finals before I know it.

But for today….I wanna curl up on the couch, watch silly reality TV and question why I’m back in school.
