I'm sorry to have missed the Magnificent Monday post yesterday. I hope that you had a very Magnificent Monday, friends!
But, you see, I began school on Monday. It was quite a grand adventure!
When I awoke early on Monday morning there was a part of me that was nervous. But, most of me was like Nemo from Finding Nemo. I felt like dancing around the kitchen and saying, "First day of school! First day of school!" (By the way, out of consideration to my slumbering family I simply whispered that quote.)
Momma took a very quick picture of me for my first day of school. It was sort of an amusing idea that I had before my first day of class. You see, I've been home educated up until this point. So, I've never had the typical "first day of school picture" taken until Monday. I smile thinking about it.
Today I thought I would share a few things about my official beginning of college.
1. Even when you're tired and about to work on homework it is still good to take time to run outside and photograph a nearby butterfly.
2. Messy hair will happen in pictures and comfy sweaters are important when you have a 7:15am class.
3. College is an adventure. Which might include almost getting off of an elevator onto an office floor (instead of a classroom floor) only to be saved from being utterly lost by a matter of fact staff member. And, it might include later walking off of said elevator onto the correct floor only to turn to the right (which leads to a dead end). And, after having begun walking the wrong way suddenly hearing the staff member simply call out, "This way."
The adventure of college might also include laughing at yourself with your family later over how funny a picture those scenarios made.
4. I'm excited to learn and so far I like each of my professors. They each seem passionate about teaching which makes me smile.
All in all, I'm excited for this adventure. There are challenging aspects and I don't think that it is all going to be easy. Not everything is pleasant. But, I'm looking forward to taking it one day at a time and giving thanks along the way.
How was your Monday?
