I'm So Excited!!!

Ouch! My brain hurts and I've only attended one class. I walked into my History Honors class this morning five minutes late because I misjudged where I needed to park and how long it would take me to get to class. If you've never been to the UT campus, or East Tennessee for that matter, it is quite hilly. I will definitely get a good workout walking to class.

The History Honors class is going to be a brain stretcher, that's for sure. We were trying to come up with a provisional definition of "History" in order to answer the question, "What is history?" That's not an easy question to answer nor an easy term to define. Dr. Freeberg is very good at challenging what we think we know. I am looking forward to this class. I am also looking forward to this semester. I figure if I can survive Introduction to Computer Science, I can survive anything!

This semester will definitely be a challenge. I told my husband I am going to rent a room at the library. Thank God there's a Starbucks there! My Economics class starts tonight. After class, I plan to go home and do some serious vegging while watching the Oklahoma Sooners stomp the Florida Gators (I hope!)!

I mentioned in a previous post that "I feel as if I need to lace up my running shoes, get situated in the starting blocks and get ready to run my heart out!" I've started running and it doesn't look like I'm going to slow down anytime soon! Stay tuned . . . .

HI, I am reading your blog from the start - I found it via google. I didn't realise 'mature students' are called 'Non trad' in the US! I have put the link below to another blog I found the same way. I remember my first year, I did the first year & a half full time but had to slow to part time for the final year and a half - it s taken me 5yrs altogether and I am on the final phase. I remember that feeling of running everywhere - back and forth to uni and school and kids activities! In a way I miss the adrenaline rush! I'll keep reading and maybe comment again.
