My first day of school went amazing! It feels SO good to finally be doing this for myself.
So, first things first -- thank you all so much for your supportative comments and helpful suggestions! Especially on the textbook issue. I ended up following Amanda's advice and ordering them off of half.com. Both together, including shipping, were $66, instead of the over $100 they would've been at the bookstore (even the used versions). In the future I will definitely be looking into renting them, but the school isn't doing that until closer to fall. A facebook friend told me a about Chegg.com where you can also rent textbooks.
Also, I discovered we aren't allowed to eat in class, at all...even though it's an evening class. I guess that means I'll be eating bigger lunches for the next six weeks on Monday and Wednesday!
The instructor is great, the class ended an hour early (yay!) and he said it may often end early. It's a good thing I like writing because there is supposedly a paper due every week from now on! Last night we wrote an impromptu "diagnostic essay", which I managed to get through. I'm excited to learn more about writing and hope it transfers over into my blog writing style. :)
So overall, it was a great success! I'm really looking forward to this whole college thing!
Today I'm planning the menu for this weekend. My family is coming over Saturday for a beach day and a cookout. I can't wait! Also I have a surprise date planned for Friday with the hubs... hehehe.
