The First Day of School

School started today. I realized at about 10 pm last night that I had not yet reserved a projector for my lecture or made copies of my syllabus and handouts for my beginning metals class. What was I thinking?! The first day is CRAZY. Everyone needs copies made, everyone needs a projector! So, I worried myself into a frenzy and kept myself occupied by re-writing my syllabus and first project handout about 8 billion times. I finally went to bed at 2:30 am. I woke up this morning at 6:00 am so I could get to school early enough to get all the things done that I should have done last week. Everything was fine and I was all ready for class at about 8:30. My class started at 10:40. As usual I stressed and caused myself a migraine for NO reason. I swear sometimes I am just too high strung!
On a good note though, this morning when I got to the studio in my crazed worried frenzy, there was a six pack of Dr. Pepper waiting for me in front of the studio doors with a little note wishing me a good semester. Aww. A friend brought me some Original Recipe Dr Pepper! I can't wait to taste it! That put a big smile on my face. I'm a big fan...of Dr. Pepper, I love it! It really made my day!
So, the first day went ok. It even ended in a nice little drizzle which cooled things off a lot. I think we are running about 108 degrees all week. That is hot!
On the schedule tomorrow:
History of the Decorative Arts in Interiors

the Dr. Pepper reminds me of when I got to go to the Dr. Pepper Museum in Waco, TX, where Dr. Pepper was invented. I still have a cool license plate looking sign from there that I'm a big fan of.....but more importantly, you're a junkie :p
