Today was my first day back at school. I had so much anxiety about it that I hardly slept last night, and woke up at 4 instead of the required 5. I do this every time. I don't know why the first day of classes stresses me out like this, but it does.

That said, today went off without a hitch. I found all my classes, on time, got all my books, took notes, chuckled politely at icebreaker jokes made by professors, the usual. The hardest thing today was sitting still. When I got home I found Astasia waiting for me with a rose and a piece of cheesecake. I really am a very lucky girl.

Everyone's so much nicer this year. Last year, I thought it might be my imagination, but now I know it's true. Everyone really does hate freshmen. It's just so irritating to be a 29 year old freshman, because people don't know they can treat you like an adult (if, like me, you pass for a little punk). Now I'm a 29 year old sophomore, and it's so much better.

For now, the homework is practically nil. I'm enjoying it while it lasts.

    I'm starting back at school (I'll be 28 this month) one class at a time. Got to admit, I'm finding a lot of the 17/18 year olds frustrating. Especially the ones who are used to looking pretty and having their parents pay for everything and do their laundry.
    And I guess I pass for being 18, not sure if that is a compliment or not :)

    Wow, that was a lot of info you prolly didn't need.
