I look out my window and watch the wind whipping around the magnolia branches as the students hurriedly walk past, bundled up against the cold. And it's 3:30 in the afternoon. I don't think it got any warmer than 35 today. Brrrr! What happened to springtime? Everyone I have talked to needs a serious dose of sunshine and warmth!
I am going to Phoenix on Monday to visit my Mom, my friends and to attend my 30th high school reunion. In the meantime, I have an exam tomorrow morning to get through. That will be the second exam this week. I got a "B" on the first one - a Geology exam. I also have two papers and a quiz due when I return from my spring break. Fun stuff.
However, I have been invited to attend a master class taught by Richard Harris, Senior Science writer for National Public Radio, on March 16th. Only a limited number of students will be in attendance. I am looking forward to it. I think the class will mesh well with my History major and Geology minor.
I am also trying to figure out my class schedule for Fall 2010. I think I may just take a class that I don't need just because I have always been interested in it - Introduction to Cartography. That would be cool.
My mind is racing, I think I am trying to get a cold and I need to study for tomorrow's exam. I definitely need spring break and warmer weather. I will be in hot pursuit of spring come Monday. I'll let you know if I find it. Stay tuned . . .
