Has it really been two months since my last post? Wow, that’s pretty lame even for my everyday low standards.
What has happened since July? Jeez, not that much. My daughter had her fourth birthday, I had my 38th. We went camping one weekend. My summer classes ended (A in Statistics, B in Chemistry Part II, The Retake) and I had about three weeks off before my fall semester started.
Speaking of my fall semester, in order to finish my classes on time, I had to take an extra class this semester (and will have to next semester too). It wouldn’t be a big deal, but all the classes I need are the ones with labs. So this fall, I’m taking Organic Chemistry, Genetics, Physics I and Nutrition (but that’s an online class without a lab, so I don’t really count it as a serious class) And then there’s the beginner swim class at 8am, three times a week. Things are going well so far, but I’m starting to feel some pressure. I had a school anxiety dream last night about getting into a fight with my professor and having her yell at me in front of the class for being stupid. Nice, right? I thought I was too old for those dreams.
On the more positive side, I believe I have found the holy grail of school bags (for me). I found one that holds notebooks, text books, my laptop, wallet, moleskine, water bottle, my lunch and assorted pens/tissues/gum/keys/etc. Maybe not all at the same time, but enough for me. I don’t know if it’s the most stylish bag in the world, but I really like it and am super happy with it so far.
Here it is: The Sherpani Sojourn.
And it’s not a backpack or a rolling case. Good enough for me.
Ok, that’s it for now, see you in another two months.
