Classes, Gary Cooper, and Lucy...

So yesterday I had to go and meet with my advisor and register for classes. I'm pretty happy with my school schedule, and I think everything is going to work out well. I don't have to take public speaking the first semester, which is a relief. This way I can get used to school without stressing out over public speaking. We went to the childcare center to meet with my advisor, and she seemed very nice. The childcare center was so cheerful and clean and organized, and I just had a really good feeling after I had been there. It felt like everything was falling into place, and like I finally knew this is what I'm supposed to do. It was so quiet there, so I guess all the kids were napping, LOL. One lady was toting around a little girl who was asleep in her arms. My schedule worked out pretty good. I have to go everyday, but not all day, and I only have one really early class. I'm taking a basic English class, a college success thing that everyone has to take, a child psychology class, and two early childhood education classes. For one of them, I'm going to be in the childcare center for several hours twice a week, so I'm looking foward to that. I can't believe I'm saying this, because I know in a few weeks I'll be a nervous wreck, but right now I'm actually a little excited about starting community college. =)

I have a whole list of things I need to be sewing right now, like several things that have to be finished in about a week and a few that I would like to finish before school starts. But I haven't been sewing anything over the past few days. It seems like all I've been doing is reading and watching old movies. The other night I watched "Mr. Deeds Goes to Town" again, starring Gary Cooper and Jean Arthur. It's such a good movie, funny but pretty dramatic towards the end. I love the tuba, the courtroom scene, and the Swanee River.

Her hat in this scene reminds me of Peter Pan, for some reason. I guess it's the shape and the feather. Whenever I hear the song "Swanee River," I think of this scene and the Peter Pan hat.

"Lucy Thinks Ricky is Trying to Murder Her" is probably one of my favorite Lucy episodes ever. It's one of the first episodes, I think the first filmed but the fourth shown on TV. It's hilarious, especially the bullet-proof protection and the sleeping powder scene. "I Love Lucy" is the only show that can make me laugh every time I see an episode, no matter how many times I've seen it.

Until next time,
Kristin (missvintagegirl)
