Priorities: in their current order of importance…
It’s the second day of the semester and I’m already on information overload.
I’ve had all four of my classes as of 3:15pm today, and all I can say is that it’s going to be a busy, challenging, hopefully rewarding, adventurous, spontaneous, and a happy semester… yes, I can tell you that much already.
If you don’t recall, I listed the four courses I’m taking this semester here. It’s a very diverse schedule, with a lot of writing, a lot of reading, one huge group project, and a lot less science. My professors are so different from one another in terms of their teaching style – it shall be interesting!
Oh, and on top of that, I have a brand new internship… a.k.a. more writing.
Happy Running Tuesday! I finished Week 3 of training [recap here] with an awesome speed workout at the WREC this evening. I made sure to get there a bit earlier tonight, as everyone and their mom was there yesterday. I guess the students are trying to start the semester off “right”. They’ll be over it in a couple weeks… it’s true.

- salted oatmeal walnut chocolate chip cookies to end the day.
Reading, quizzes, and assignments already!
