Back to REALITY!

I am sitting here at my laptop reading the prep for the courses I am taking this semester and thinking about how fast the summer went by. Of course I maxed out on summer courses so that may be why it seemed so short. But I can't complain because I am really enjoying soaking up all this brand new knowledge. I packed so much fun into the month of August with a road trip, hiking, Oneida casino, tour of the Miller Brewery in Milwaukee, shopping, concerts (Scorpions & Ratt and Ted Nugent), movies (Tropic Thunder, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2, Mamma Mia!), and an Arlington Park afternoon of horse racing, so I really made my short break count!

But now it is time to get serious again (I guess...!) and concentrate on school. I am taking Environmental Health, Library Research Methods, The Nature of Human Nature, and Internet and American Life. I love the diversity of the Liberal Studies program, it suits me perfectly. I am excited about my courses and can't believe I will be graduating in the spring of 2009. Second to last semester is here already! And then I will have to get a job again and reality will REALLY set in!!
