In a mere 16 days I will be an official college student. Holy shit! Is that not a scary thought? I suppose I am one now, but my first day of class is in 16 days, on August 30th. But I'm psyched! I can do this...that picture of that sweet ass car over there says so. It's my motivation. My prize when I'm done. I'm determined to see this through. This is something I've been talking about for a year now, and I can't believe the time is finally here.
It's strange to think that when I do my kid's back to school shopping in a few days, I will be buying my own school supplies too. It's been a very long time since I had to do that. Seventeen years, as a matter of fact. Backpack, folders, notebooks, pens, pencils...oh my! Maybe even some back to school clothes? A new pair of shoes? All the things that mark a new school year! :)
Speaking of a new school year, my baby is entering middle school this year! OMG! Middle School!! I wonder if I'm going to cry his first day of school? We've been doing this for years now, but it's a NEW school, with lots of new kids! How am I ever going to handle that? But more on that later. I don't want to think about that right now...my baby's growing up, sometimes it seems way too fast :(.
