Today is “that day”. You know, the day when you were finally starting to get in to the swing of Christmas break and then *bam!* school is back. Or change school to work and then I have appealed to everyone here.
My transportation options to school were not seeming appealing today. I had three options:
Ride my bike.It is 22° out. Take the bus.I still can’t figure out how the heck to get home.
Of course, driving requires that extra fifteen minutes of preparation time that is needed to scrape the ice off my car and heat the interior to a temperature that wouldn’t be appropriate for storing raw meat. Don’t get me wrong, I love my cold weather, but at 7am when it is 10 degrees below freezing, all I want to do is curl up on the couch with a cup of coffee.
I did manage to make it to school and find some parking, though, and I was off to my first class: Chemistry (dun dun dun!). Let’s just say I am a bit rusty. After not having taken Chem for about a year and a half, I am definitely going to have to study my booty off to get back to the same place as the rest of the class. Since I don’t really have any other option, I just have to
cry my eyes out and drop out of school grin and bear it.
Class number two was Biology (double yuck). It is definitely going to be challenging. It is essential an integration of basic Chemistry and intermediate Biology. Needless to say, my first two classes already have me on my guard for a very difficult Quarter.
Lunch was much less beautiful and more poorly photographed than usual.
Courtesy of my iPod camera, I bring you a salad topped with tomatoes, black beans, a veggie patty, and raspberry chipotle sauce. It ain’t pretty, but for days when I’m on the go, it does the job.
Now all that’s left is to tough out one more class (Interpersonal Communications… no thanks, I don’t like to communicate with other persons) before I can finally go home and run. Is it bad that the knowledge that my running shoes are waiting for me at home is getting me through the day? Maybe.
But hey, at least it warmed it:
