First Day....checkkkk

Here is a picture of me looking epically into my future as a Masters student. I understand if you couldn't recognize me at first, I probably look wiser and smarter after my first day.

I have absolute no clue what this building is. I do however know it is not where I go to get my ID, I still am ID-less.
Check out the foliage on that one!
This just in I go to school at Hogwarts, I'm getting my masters in sorcery. 
Hello cathedral, It's a pleasure.
I got the first day jitters and ended up getting to school wayyy tooo early. Hark the benches that housed my bottom for a good half hour.

Anecdote: I got totally and COMPLETELY lost when going to my first class this morning. I spent a good fifteen minutes looking for a fifth floor in a four floor building, a search which took me to the roof THREE times (some people just never learn). It took some time but I finally realized that I confused the class listing as the room number. How did I ever make it to higher education?
Check out this wicked cute notebook I got at the bookstore!! It was labeled "Dogs wearing sweaters" Who with a heart could pass that up?!? I for one don't have that sort of strength.
My absolute favorite pens! Now I'm good to go!
What does this look like to you? A pile of books? Hmm..looks like $400(!!!!!!) to me!

Phew, I'm tired after my first day. Off to chug more coffee!

  4. Hehe! Well, the campus is gorgeous as are you...and you'll be finding your way around in no time! I'm so glad I'm done with grad school and no longer have to remortgage my house to buy text books! This is why when I started teaching I found the best and most inexpensive text for students...it costs only 12 bucks! Hehe good professor Parker! Lol
    I think I'm going to put sweaters on my actual dogs now because that notebook is too cute (or would that be animal cruelty? Hmmmm)
    Have an awesome day two Katie!

    This totally sounds like something I would do; countless times I've left the house early for something, inevitably gotten lost on the way, pulled over to check the street directory again, then arrived late and flustered!!!

    I like your trousers too!
