My first day of class was on Tuesday, and I am taking the “capstone” early (before I finish my electives) so that I can get it out of the way in the beginning of the year, and not have to try to cram it into a shortened summer semester.
I assume that this highly-integrated class is going to be just like a thesis defense, except I don’t have a year to finish it, only a semester. And it’s a group project. Which, given my track record with group work through my MBA, this could be bad news.
That said, I’m very committed to learning as much as I can in this class, and starting work early, and working on it often. I will not get caught with my pants down as far as learning the material is concerned, which is exactly how I felt at the end of last semester.
Here’s some other things I’m feeling grateful for, in addition to not proverbially mooning anyone:
- My hand-blown drinking glass I got from Hale Farm. I’ve put a lot of gallons through it.
- New pants from the Ann Taylor Factory Outlet. I now have more than two pairs of pants in my wardrobe that fit!
- Taco night. Good god-particle, I love me some tacos.
- Audiobooks that I can listen to while pedaling nowhere on the recumbent bike at the gym.
- The feeling you get when you pull the covers up to your chin when it’s cold out. So snug!
