Back to School!

I *heart* my friends at Flickr

I should be asleep by now, but I’m wired. That is what always happens when I have something “big” going on the next day. If I am going on a trip, I worry that I don’t have everything packed. I end up staying up all night, worrying about the things I am leaving behind. (I frequently have to remind myself that no matter where I go, I will be able to get anything I might need. It doesn’t normally help.) So tomorrow is the first day back to school. It will be a long day, and I’m worried because I don’t have a lunch box to take my lunch in. I thought we had a spare lunch bag, but it is icky inside. I tried to find one at Wal-Mart today to buy, but no luck. I guess I’ll have to try Target or somewhere else later this week. Tomorrow I’ll just tote my sandwich and stuff in an ugly plastic bag.

I start the day off with my Photography I class. I’m excited about shooting with film again and getting back into the darkroom for the first time in almost 20 years. (The darkroom part, not the film part.) I’m sure I will do fine, yet I’m really nervous that I won’t be good enough. I’m looking forward to having photo assignments, but I’m worried that I won’t have the skills I need to take the great shots I want to take. Plus I’m worried that I’ll be 15-18 years older than most of my classmates and that no one will like me. I know I’ll get over that right away, because it hasn’t been a problem so far – other than me wanting to smack the snot off of some dumb kid’s face in my Biology class last semester, I got along with everyone just fine.

Biology II is in the afternoon, and I’m not really worried about that at all. It will be a bit of a transition since I took Biology I at the other campus and used a different book, but otherwise it should be fine.

I shouldn’t be awake right now. 6 am is going to hit me hard tomorrow morning. I can do this. I can go to sleep. It is all going to be ok. I will be dressed when I go to school, and it will be alright. (I don’t normally have dreams like that, but I’m preparing myself just in case.) I know where to go, where to park, where my classroom is at. All I need to do is sleep. Sounds easy, right? If only I wasn’t so wired…

Have a great first day! I came to your website after seeing that, like me, you were disappointed about being late in finding the 200socks knit-along. It looks like you’ve got plenty of other stuff to do…I like your pretty pictures. Kick butt in Bio II (I like to think of science as stories, then it’s not so different from literature, or history).
