The First Day of School

I haven’t been in a classroom in roughly a dozen years, but for the first time since then, I’m a student again. Tonight was my first day back to school in an effort to right a wrong, silence a little voice and to further my education.

Surprisingly, it was what I expected. We didn’t do anything of importance, and the routine of a first day of class was very familiar, bicycle riding-type familiar. He passed around the sign-in sheet and the syllabus, and then proceeded to read it to us, afterwards, explaining who he was and what we should expect from the class.

I felt as though I had an edge on everyone else. Since I prepare more for everything I do in my life now more than ever, I had already read two textbooks on the subject (and 1/3 of the assigned textbook) and I had even practiced some of the assignments in those books.

I was excited to go to class again, but I should have left about 10 minutes earlier than I had, because by the time I had parked and briskly walked to the Engineering Building, found the classroom (I actually found it a couple of weeks ago—remember, I am prepared), and sat down, the class had just started.

Tomorrow, I have to run to an architectural supply store to get all of the equipment I’ll need for the class, about $75 bucks worth of things. At least I’ll have them.

Architect, here I come. Wish me luck.
