So I'm officially a student. Well, I suppose it was official when I signed up for classes, but now it's official, official. I went to my first day of class.
When I went this morning, I stared for the longest time at the university from across the street. I couldn't believe I was going there. But I suppose it'll be worth it in the end. I can get out of SAT TV and I can do something more enjoyable for more pay and less stress.
Finally, I got up the courage to go to my class. I got lost on the way there and had to ask some teenager for help. Eventually, I found my way to the lecture hall. There were more people there than I expected.
The professor stood at the front of the class. "My name is Dr. Clark. I want to personally welcome you all here. I know for many of you this is huge step in your life. You're making changes. Changes to your career. Changes to your future. It won't be easy. It will a difficult 18 months -- you will work hard, study hard and many times you'll feel like quitting -- but at the end you'll have your bachelors and a degree you can be proud of."
I'm not sure what to make of Dr. Clark but, like it or not, I'm stuck with him. I wonder if I'll pass this course.
