School Tomorrow

Well, there's not much to blog about today. I'm making progress on the baby sweater, in fact I have two of the five pieces complete, but they really don't make a good photo. lol Just brown stockinette shapes on a carpet, you know? hehe

But that's not what I've spent most of my time thinking about tonight. I'm much more preoccupied with my school's orientation tomorrow. Here's the schedule:

Welcome Reception. President’s House.

So I'll be leaving my house at about 7:45am tomorrow morning and arriving home about 9:30 pm. It's a day just chalk full of awesome stuff ! I'll get to meet other students and professors, eat in the cafeteria, and have a reception at the President's House! How crazy is that?

Mostly, I'm excited that tomorrow is the beginning of a new chapter in my life. Dabney Lancaster Community College is now behind me and I'm taking the step in to a much wider world. I'm so looking forward to being around a totally new group of people.

Registration is Monday, then classes start Wednesday and I'm torn between chomping at the bit and wanting to savor the anticipation.

I guess I found something to blog about tonight, didn't I? ;)
