Semester Begins

Woooo! Here I go.
Diving head first into a new semester of college.
I have 3 classes again, as I did last semester,
maybe one day I'll actually graduate.
But I'm not holding my breath!

Here's what I have:
Introduction to World Geography
Grant Writing
History of the Maine Coast

I'm excited.
Grant Writing is a skill I've wanted to learn for a while, so hopefully I achieve that goal...
One never knows.
Geography will fill a general ed requirement, and I tend to enjoy the subject, so hopefully that won't be too painful...
And then the history of my beautiful state's coastline and fishing industry from prehistory to the present will be just plain great knowledge to have! I'm really looking forward to it.

Now if only I can stay on top of my assignments and my housework.....

Aw, I wanna take geography class too!

I have English ancestors who immigrated to Massachusetts and Maine in the late 1600s/early 1700s. One who was a fisherman said something quoted in a book or diary somewhere: basically "We came not for God. We came for fishing." Yep, I come from fishing pilgrims, not Puritan pilgrims!

I hope your Maine Coast course entails lots of field trips, Lisa. And I'm proud of you for going to college!

Thanks for the encouragement, Orange dear! I need it. :)

I will try to grant myself some field trips even if they are not included in the course. I love this coast!! I love that quote from your Dad's family totally fits that description, but my Mom's side had a MayFlower moment.
