When I went back to school a couple of years ago, I discovered, or rather was informed (by a rather grouchy counselor I might add) that I was missing an Arts/Letters class for my general ed requirements. I decided to put it off because I was a little annoyed that I was being forced to return to those general classes I had thought were completed. After getting over it and realizing that I will never finish unless I take the darn class, I ended up taking a music theory class this semester to make up for this deficiency, as an art class doesn't count for me (because I'm a fine arts major). Today I received an email from my instructor informing me that I have done far better than the "C" I had anticipated at the start of the semester.
All I can say is "YAY!" Now the countdown really has begun. Soon, I'll be back to my normal bicycle chatter, but for now, I'm just basking in the glory of being done with one class... and soon, the rest will follow.
Psst... by the way, it's been incredibly gorgeous here in Colorado! We haven't really even had any snow stick yet, and tomorrow, it's supposed to be close to 60 degrees Fahrenheit. It's as though Christmas came early this year.
