Today marks the day I find myself once again, sitting in a classroom. But now, I am a grad student. It's not my first time at the rodeo, but this is definitely a new horse. I am filled with excitement and nervous energy. I really don't know what to expect and can you believe this, I haven't even figured out what to wear yet!
Then I remembered when I picked up my parking permit and was asked casually by the security guard, if I would like the fee deducted out of my faculty payroll.
And yes, I read his bio. Never hurts to be prepared.
So as I sit here typing away, I am wondering what this day holds for me. I know that I will head off to yoga in an hour, to calm my frazzled nerves a smidge. After lunch (if I can eat) I plan on leaving for school with plenty of time to find parking and get myself acclimated to the campus. I missed "new kid" orientation but I figured once again, I might be mistaken for an R.A., a house mother or a member of the faculty welcoming committee. After the parking permit incident, I thought it best to sit that one out.
Wish me luck as I embark on this adventure. One that is sure to be filled with surprises and reality checks.
And I want to thank each one of you who have supported and inspired me to follow my dream of writing and returning to school to pursue that dream. Most importantly, I want to thank my family and my husband Chris. Honey, you are amazing and I am so grateful that I have your love and support. You ROCK and you ARE my rock.
And as far as my blog goes, well perhaps it will take on a new shape. One that is filled with my adventures as a wide eyed graduate student at the tender age of 40.
