Going To School Tomorrow

Hola todos,

Tomorrow, is back to school. (I move into my apartment tomorrow, and start classes on Monday.) As written in my previous blog, I am not excited for this. I would much rather be in South America, speaking Spanish, experiencing culture that I am still learning about and meeting lots of new and interesting people. Being in a place I don't know well.
Instead, I am going back to school... A thing that I have become unfamiliar with. Do you know, the last time I had a serious class was over nine months ago? (The end of fall semester at Albany.) I mean, no class was taken seriously/ we didn't even have class in Chile. I am not excited to have to sit at a desk, listen to a professor, and take notes. And worst of all, write papers,take tests and read boring textbooks. A person can learn so much more about a topic by experiencing it themselves.
I  suppose I'm also nervous. The fact that I haven't had a serious class in nine months has not only made me not used to the idea of class, but has put a damper on my studying habits (or lack there of) and schedule when in school.
Oh well, at least this is my last year and then, I will win the lottery and spend the rest of my life traveling in South America!
