First day...

So, today was my first day of community college, the day I've been worried about for the past year and obsessed with for the past month. It went pretty well. I should have realized that today would be a good day just by the fact that I actually managed to eat breakfast this morning. =) Anyway, I only had two classes, but I was in town all day, and I'm completely exhausted. I even went to bed early last night, but a terrible thunderstorm with a ton of rain kept me awake for a while (I love thunderstorms, but over the past month, we've had about three big storms that about scared me to death). I think I'm going to really like those two classes especially. The teachers are so nice and I was surprised to see a family friend who I've known since I was 4 or 5, probably, in my first class. I can't even explain the relief I felt to recognize one face, LOL. I was freaking out by that time because of the parking situation. Apparently, they're desperately lacking in parking spaces. I drove around for five or ten minutes and was nearly late for class because I couldn't find a spot. I hope it won't be like this all the time. It was complete chaos over there today, with people walking everywhere and cars everywhere. I saw a very near-accident a few times. It was crazy. That was the most nerve-wracking and stressful part of my day.

I like the personal, secluded feeling of the children's center. I like having classes with all girls who are in the child care program (and of course it's all girls...the unnecessary boys' bathroom in the class has become a storage room). Tomorrow and Wednesday, I'm afraid, I'll be thrown out into the real world, with all sorts of students in my classes (they're more basic classes). I got spoiled today, and I can't help but feel that the rest of my week won't go nearly as happily or smoothly as today did. Anyway, besides parking, I guess today was a good first day of college.

Until next time,
