So I'm back in town after spending the past year in the country. The country is quiet and peaceful and I enjoyed my time out there, but it's a bit far. And I enjoy being in the city. I like the activity and I like things being close. As I'm sitting here typing this, I can hear students outside laughing over something. I can see car headlights pass by my window. I've already caught up with old neighbors and classmates. Best of all, I'm in my own place, with my own bed and my own kitchen.
Today was the first day of class. This semester's a bit different for me as all of my classes are online. I've taken a couple of online classes, but I've never had a full load of classes online during any given semester. It feels a bit weird not having to be in an actual classroom for three hours. I log on to my account and download my syllabus for each class and do the work. Simple enough. Two more semesters and I'll be home-free!
