I'm a nerd...as if that's a surprise

I'm beginning another school year for the 18th time and I couldn't be happier. Is saying I'm as giddy as a school girl too much? Okay, maybe giddy isn't the right word, but it's close. I'm talking about rhetoric and transnational lit in my classes and then (drum roll please)I'm teaching writing & rhetoric...to freshmen! I get to have office hours and a desk. Yes, I might have thought "I'm a big girl now!" to the Huggies jingle, but no I was not so excited that I needed their product.

At my mom's request, I took a first day of teaching photo. And I promise it was really at her request, but I happily complied.

I thought carefully about that outfit and had it approved by all the roommates. I hope you're picking up on my enthusiasm.

Besides teaching and having a desk, it's back to school as usual. I have homework to do, ward socials to go to, (My new ward is hyper-social. I'm talking 6 activities in one week.) and football games to watch. My roommates and I went all out for this first game. The only reason we didn't have blue hair was because we forgot.




So basically, I'm loving this semester and it looks like I'll continue to love it...until I have to stay up late consistently working on papers, but I'll deal with that when the time comes.

Your first day of teaching photo is waaay better than the photo from my first day of kindergarten. For one, you aren't wearing a bright pink t-shirt with matching socks and stonewashed shorts.
