School starts on Tuesday. Part of me is happy and another part of me is screaming for another month to play. This break has been good and I feel refreshed enough to plunge ahead. However, I feel like a kid who has spent the last month of summer whining that I'm bored with nothing to do only to go kicking and screaming back to school that first day. I know this is good for me. I know that in the long run the sacrifices I am making will pay off. Shoot they are already paying off. But, it's still a love-hate relationship that I have with school. I love learning and expanding my mind I just hate doing it under someone else's terms, i.e. tests.
I went to buy my books today. For two classes it cost me $282.80!!!! It's for 3 books, two of which are used. It's absolutely ridiculous. I still need to buy the books for my other two classes. At least I can wait eight weeks before I buy those. One of those classes has 4 books that are required. How in the world will we cover the material in 4 books during an 8 week period!!!! Oh crap! I just realized I will need my financial calculator for these classes. I haven't unpacked my books and desk crap since I'm thinking of painting my desk before putting it back together. Ug! I guess I need to go riffle through some boxes.
