One Week Until Classes Start!!

Is anyone else as excited as I am???

Okay... probably not but that is fine since I am excited enough for all of us! :-D

I received an email this morning outlining more of our schedule for next Friday. As of right now I don't know where my classes are going to be in a concrete sense. I know the name of the place so I could probably find it online but I think I'll feel a lot better after I've had the walking tour next Friday.

Tomorrow we're having an informal meet up with our class and the class ahead of us just to get to meet each other before the madness of classes start. They selected an Asian bistro, which is right up my alley.

There was some definite sadness yesterday, which was my last day at work. I had to say goodbye to the manger who hired me, without whom I wouldn't even know what a PA is/does, the veterinary pathologist who taught me how to gross the big scary things, and the two other grossing techs who've spent at least forty hours a week with me for the past 3.5 years and 2.5 years respectively... Who have put up with my bouts of verbal diarrhea, obsessive interests, questionable taste in music, my pervy sense of humor and just my personality in general. Work life will be very different for them--a lot busier until the new hire gets up to speed--and quieter.

It will be strange not going to work and for a few weeks in the afternoons and evenings when I look at the clock I will be thinking of them and hoping everything is going okay.

In other news I scheduled my appointment with the student health center for a PPD and a Tspot. Not sure why both since the latter is more sensitive than the PPD, but whatever. If it is a requirement they require then I'm doing it!


  1. I mean I'm pretty excited for you. You set out to do something and now you're finally there. You're changing your life, and you're doing it with a family in tow. Awesome. Good Luck in your first week of classes.

  2. Aw, thanks :-D I really appreciate that.
