Back to School

Today I begin something very different. Of course I was in school this past year, but that was with 3 credits (one class) per semester. This time around? NINE credits, and still working full time! I have 4 credits worth of Math on Mondays and Wednesdays, then 5 credits worth of Physics on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with a lab section after the Tuesday class. Most days I'll be home by 7:30 or 8, except Tuesdays.

But this is only a difference of size, not kind. (I was going to say a difference of degree, but that would be a very bad pun in a post about college.)

The real change is my change of major. Why would a history major be taking math (Algebra/Trig) and physics?

That's because I'm an astronomy major now. Well, technically it's physics with an emphasis in astronomy/astrophysics, but it's close. It's something I've wanted to do since I was very little. I had space books on the shelf right next to my Little Golden Books!

It's going to be a long road. It's not quite starting over, but close. But now I am on the road, and we shall see where it goes.
