One week from today, I will begin my teaching certification program. For the next nine months, I will be working hard on furthering my career and expanding my knowledge base. I am excited and nervous. The last time I was involved in university-level learning was 7 years ago. Boy, time does go by fast.
I think I am about as ready as possible. Books have been in for a while, even a Psychology textbook I ordered just to have on hand as a reference. Amazingly, despite keeping strange school books, like Moby Dick, I sold back my Psych book. Grrr! Tuition is paid. I have set up my new school email and e-Learning accounts.
And I received a big surprise today! Joern bought me a new laptop with a mobile-internet stick. I am so excited!!! The new laptop is a new Eee-PC, like my pink one, just with Windows, a larger screen, and a slightly larger keyboard. It is black this time, but no complaints here. I feel really like I am getting ready for my first day of school, and remember beginning college with my brand new laptop. Okay, that lasted me four years, and I am going to make this stretch a whole 9 months, but still, it feels so exciting!
I am going to do lots of housework this weekend, because I know that will decline slightly when I begin school. Otherwise, I am just going to try to relax a bit this weekend and know that this is it for a while!
