Commence the freakout.

School started today. Damm was gone all day and I spent most of the day trying really really hard not to think about my classes. I've got two online classes-intermediate spanish and Russian history-and both have assignments due already. The syllabus for my honor's course was emailed at the beginning of the week. The other class I'll encounter tomorrow.

And we ordered most of our textbooks from online sources. And they're NOT HERE YET. THEY'RE NOT HERE. They won't get here til the 23rd. Next Tuesday. That is FOREVER. We're going to have to find another way of saving money. I'm having panic issues. Yeah, that's weird. Just remember I'm most like Hermoine in Harry Potter. I would be disappointed if exams were cancelled.

The most work will be my Spanish course. The rest will just be a lot of writing. Think at least one 3-page paper a week and frequently more. I can do that-I've done it in the past-but never when I've had two little kids clamoring for my attention.

I freak out every semester. Once I figure everything out and determine how much time each class gets I'll settle down. But right now the mountain is looming large.

==============================================================
She's a history major :P Art's and sciences college requires 4 semesters of foreign language.

I'm an electrical engineering major cadet. Guess who requires zero semesters of foreign language?

Art and flowers.

My camera phone doesn't focus at a range close enough to get the details :(... trying to solve this.
Anyways you can make out the green and gold color scheme I hope.
I *had* to draw today the orclette told me to.
Our flowers are growing along now.
And look very pretty.
Well some of them. Our many many sunflowers..... are now two.
But at least they are blooming!
