Back to School...Back to School...
You know the rest.
School started on Monday. Yippee. I hope you can hear how (NOT) excited I am about that. It's actually been pretty nice though, because I'm working in the mornings now which means way less hours and way less money...but way less stress. So that's really nice. Today after one of my classes I even got to take a nap! It was so exciting!!! It was only for like 15 minutes, but so worth it. I'm taking a class called iComm. It's a practicum which is the alternative to an internship. I'm currently doing iNews which is BYU-I's news. But iComm has all kinds of stuff. They do the student newspaper, the Scroll, they have Alloy, which deals with advertising and PR and organizational comm, they do Rixida which is the dvd yearbook and a bunch of other stuff. So I'm doing iNews which I'm kinda excited about. I was actually really excited about it until I went there and they said we have to be there Tuesday, Wednesday, AND Thursday...and I have conflicting classes Wed and Thurs! So I'm worried about what's going to happen, and I'm already feeling retarded about everything and like a total beginner. Which I am. I'm just intimidated! Hopefully it goes ok. They're having anchor auditions on the 29th but I don't know if I'm going to do it. We'll see. But the majority of my classes I'm actually excited about and think they'll go well.
Cody's also taking a bunch of classes. He's taking 2 really hard mechanical engineering ones (he was taking 3 but I convinced him that was way too much to do AND work 8 hours a day), a religion class with me, and an English class. But the English class is for engineering majors and it's only a block class. So it'll start halfway through the semester. I signed him up for it because I didn't want him to take the 3rd super hard m.e. class, but I didn't tell him until afterwards that he has to write a 30 page paper for it. I told him I'd help him...Even though I know NOTHING about engineering I am pretty good at writing papers and I'm definitely good about making up stuff that sounds right.
All in all, it should be an interesting semester!
Oh, an in my iComm class today I was talking to an old friend. She said she was expecting and I told her I was too and she said-Yeah, I thought maybe, but it's not like you can really tell...And you don't want to say anything unless you're sure...Which was nice, but then I thought, Oh my gosh, I'm that girl..THAT girl. The one you see in the store and say to your friend-Pregnant at 10:00 yes or no?!?! (Do other people talk using the clock as their guide as to where to look? or is that just my family?) It's almost as bad as.. Guy or girl at 10:00?? I can't wait until people can just be like-Whoa, she's pregnant. Maybe not the whoa...cause that implies I'm pretty big. I guess just the-She's pregnant. For sure. Not just fat. I also feel like I'm the only pregnant person that has ever been like this. I've never really noticed people that I KNOW to be pregant getting bigger..until they're for sure pregnant looking. Other pregnant people, did this really happen to you? Or is it really just me?!
