Back to School Junkie

Monday I start my first semester of grad school (okay, second semester).  I took a class this summer (but in my mind that doesn't officially count, since it wasn't technically on campus).  I'm taking 12 hours this semester; and yes, I've geeked out.  I went 'Back to School' shopping this weekend and bought myself some new jeans (I'm already planning my outfit for Monday)!

On a more serious note, I'm not sure how IVF treatment will interfere with school (there are a few days during the process I will be out of commission).  One thing I do know (wait, I know two things).  First, I'd rather be a full-time student than a full-time employee while going
 through IVF, being it's an intense 4 - 6 weeks.  Second, I'm more than lucky to have a husband who understands and supports my decision to go back to school full-time to become a teacher (thanks Dave!).

Here's a list of the classes I'm taking this semester:

SECD 5140  Secondary School Experience
READ 5255  Reading & Writing in Content Area (sounds dubious)
HIST 2207  Modern Latin America
ECON 1101 Economics for Non-Majors (most certainly will be oldest student in class)

Also, here's a list of some of my favorite school accessories I've been acquiring since I made the decision to go back to school (more proof I've totally geeked out).  I've assured Dave all these items are essential to my educational pursuits:

Little Debbie fudge rounds

Quo Vadis academic planner

GAP Essential jeans

Rocket Dog shoes

Pigma Micron pens

Moleskine notebooks


KEEN laptop bag
Built NY laptop sleeve

SIGG water bottle
Shiraleah bag

My husband LOVES those micron pens! Thanks for the opportunity for brownie points! Love all the links.

I'd be totally disappointed if you weren't a back to school junkie! My image of you is intact. Love YA!
