NOTHING LIKE JUMPING RIGHT IN! After two days and four classes, my classmates and I headed back to our respective homes with four assignments. One is due via e-mail at midnight tonight (I just sent mine), and the other three are due on Friday and Saturday.
Dare I admit that I am enjoying it, lest I jinx myself? The assignments are low-stress at this juncture. I think it's a good thing to work steadily -- as opposed to having tons of stuff due at mid-term, for example. It's helpful for me to have to stay on top of it. Like anyone else, I will rest on the laurels of time (as in: "Oh, I can do that later!")
I am doing fairly well with the goals I set in my summer article. I'm exercising (two hours on the bicycle this morning), eating healthy (I've dropped 4 pounds) and sleeping (I've been in the bed between 10-11 p.m. most nights this week).
Tomorrow is my field orientation. I am excited about it! Wish me luck. I'll be at DFCS at 8:30 a.m.
