One of These Days

I know I'm a geek, but I'm psyched for school to start again. I was actually a bit disappointed that it starts so late this year (The last week of August). I think it helps that I'm majoring in something I really love, instead of just going to college for the sake of going to college, which was how I started out.

This semester is also freaking me out a bit. I'm taking textiles, which is as boring as it sounds. Actually, probably more boring than it sounds. But I suppose I understand why it's important. The class that has me worried is Architectural Design and Production. It's essentially designing a house over the course of the semester. It should be interesting, but I'm not nearly anal enough to be an architect, so these classes are always killer for me. (And I'm REALLY anal.)

I will soon be the proud owner of this beauty:

It should make for an interesting semester.

On a side, but related, note, a classmate of mine, Rachel, has been nominated for the Glamour Woman of the Year award. She's a three time cancer survivor who was nominated because of all the work she's done with cancer charities and whatnot. You can read more here.
Please go vote for her, it will only take a minute of your time.

Designing a house over a semester? That sounds cool!

I wish I went to college when I really knew what I wanted to do, seems like such a waste of a degree :(

That architecture class sounds SO COOL! I would LOVE to design a house... just not build it or maintain it. :D

Will go visit the link for your friend in a minute, I promise you.

Done! And I even voted using my real name and birthday and everything!

Avitable: Would you like to help me with my homework?

Robin: You could always go back. It's going to take me like 7 years to get my degree because it took me so long to decide what to do

Poppy: Thanks for voting for her! The class should be fun, it's just a crap load of work

Thanks for the shout-out! You'll do great in Arch D&P-it was one of my favorites! Who do you have as your prof? I had Mary.
