Let the games begin!

Yesterday was my first day back at ASU, and I think it went pretty well. I've changed my class schedule a bajillion times this semester, so I'll do a run-down on my classes, for those of you who haven't heard the latest changes. On Monday and Wednesday mornings, Chris and I drive out to the Downtown campus for BIS 301, a fast-track, eight-week course that runs into the end of October. When that one is done, we start up BIS 302 (same days, same time, same teacher). We're also taking another eight-week course together online, ARS 300--Introduction to Art. Then, I'm taking two more online classes, ENG 301--Writing for Professions--and ENH 380--Ents, Orcs, & Hobbits: Tolkien's Vikings in Middle-earth. While it looks like I'm going to be reading a LOT this semester, I think I'm going to enjoy all of my classes.

I am disappointed, though, because I was planning on taking two classes at the Institute this semester, but I ended up dropping them. I'm not on the main campus at all this semester, and Chris was going to have to make a bunch of extra trips to get me to my classes (I hate being a burden to anyone). It was going to be way inconvenient for him, and after seeing the syllabi for my classes, I decided it was going to be too much with my work load. I hated having to make this decision. I'd been looking forward to these classes all summer. There's always next semester, though...

Anywho, I'm super excited for tomorrow afternoon!! I get to don my Hallmark apron again for the first time in almost 3 months!!! I just hope that I'll remember how to do everything, haha, especially as we're having a huge visit. Ahhh!! Prayers, please!! :)
