So, yes, today was the first day of classes. No, it was not my last first day of classes, as so many of my friends are putting on their facebook statuses (statusi?). I will never not have a first day of classes until I retire. Seriously– think about it. Me, being a teacher, will always provide me with: a summer vacation, a Christmas vacation, a spring break, a first day of class, a last day of class, and all the other holidays and snow days and whatnot. It will be great. (OKAY if you want to be technical, this is the last first day of classes as an undergrad. Next semester doesn’t count because I’ll be teaching teaching.)
So my first class was Reading in the Content Area. Basically this means teaching reading to students who either don’t know how to read, or are not good readers/don’t like to read. I had a really big NERD moment; the air conditioning in the room makes the SAME EXACT NOISE as the TARDIS. I know, I know. AWESOMEEEEEEE. And I totally volunteered to get up in front of the class and share my response to something we had to do in class. WHO AM I? I love it.
Then I had president’s training for this book club I started on campus, and then I had photography. Three hour class in an non air-conditioned room. Oh my. Everyone was sweating it was so gross. And the class can fit about 8-10 people and we had 2o in there. YIKES.
Then I did some homework and then had dinner with a friend and then went to my roommate’s A-Capella group’s auditions and got to sit in on them and watch people. It was quite interesting. There were some really great people, some really not so great people, and some really terrible people. But I remained more composed than some, which I felt was a personal triumph. And OMG there was this one guy who auditioned who was straight from China, and he kept bowing and he sang the only song he knew in English…MY HEART WILL GO ON. I mean, HOW FREAKING ADORABLE. He was soooooo cute everyone loved him so so much.
Now I am home and sleeepy and I has to get up early for classes tomorrow. SO as a parting remark for the END of BEDA, I don’t know if you noticed but every title has been a song lyric, or a quote, or something. SO I am going to now list them out and tell you what they are from because I know you are just DYING TO KNOW RIGHT NOW.
