I will take my first Ph.D. class. Tonight.
I have my "luggage" all ready -- a blanket, a pillow, my contact supplies, PJs, makeup remover, and, the most needed of all, my laptop.
Is it sad that I actually have to pack to go to class?
Super Duper University is located around 3 1/2 (no traffic) to 4 1/2 (loads of traffic) hours away. In another state even. Superman is driving me back and forth, thank God. But my class is from 6-10 p.m. Thursday nights, so we'll be leaving around 12:30 p.m. or 1 p.m. and getting back around 2 a.m. Friday.
Oh, and did I mention I have to be at work at 7:30 a.m. Friday morning?
Triple shot latte coming right up!
But I am so excited about this. Ridiculously excited. I haven't even seen the syllabus, and I e-mailed my professor yesterday with an idea for a paper proposal that I want to present at a conference in Texas next year. I even looked up articles to research.
Thank God I'm a nerd, because I think you have to be in this game. And in World of Warcraft (but I don't play that, promise -- though some people who read this blog do...LOL).
And just for funsies, my class that I teach starts today, too. It's an online class -- the first online class I've taught. Which means that TECHNICALLY -- not that I'm going to do it, but TECHNICALLY -- I can teach class AND go to class at the same time. Wrap your mind around that one for a second.
I am suddenly soooo glad that I'm anonymous on here, because I'd really hate for my professors to see that. ;)
