Hairs are chopped off and eyes are super-puffed from all of this Iowa pollen, but I’m trying to be excited about this semester. I survived summer classes and am on track to graduate in May (hooray!), but have never been so nervous about starting school again. After cramming a year of Italian studies into an eight week summer course (10 credits! Bam!), I am kind of worried that taking two upper level Spanish courses is going to absolutely kick my butt. And I want to be completely awesome at my internship but don’t really know what it is going to be like yet. Guess I’ll find out tomorrow. For now though, I’m going to go ahead and enjoy the last night of my summer and put off my statement of interest for my thesis workshop until the last possible minute. Some things never change.
