Reality check

For some reason I simply can't believe the new quarter starts tomorrow. This is going to be my most packed yet since returning to college. I'll also be dealing with ACTUAL REAL LIFE TEENAGERS next term for the first time in years. We'll see how that shakes down regarding my intention of becoming a secondary school teacher.

I have one "little dudes" class -- Ornithology. Birds have toes, so they count.

I have Aikido again, but intermediate this time. That'll make a bruise.

I have a community service class which puts me into a local "in need" high school to help out.

And I have Human Genetics (yawn). I'm so tired of the micro, the mini, the minuscule in my schooling I can't tell you. Atoms? Fuck 'em I don't care anymore.

I want to study little dudes dammit, THINGS WITH TOES. I know I know, Humans have toes -- but "little dudes" means nonhuman things with toes. Is that too much to ask? I'm a biology major for crissakes, Organismal Biology at that -- why can't I study nonhuman things with toes? Why must I always peer into a microscope -- WHY?

...

Whew, I feel better, do you feel better?

Enjoy your next 3 months,

Bp

I dunno. The thought of teenagers is kind of scary.

I have to feel at least a little sympathy for them however, as they will be confronted with an authentic old geezer.

I'm an imposter. Just ask Colleen, I am really about 14.
