Okay, time to be brutally honest.
I’ve never been to school in my life, so I’m finding college a little weird. Sitting in a classroom, having a real live teacher standing at the front of the room and teaching; taking tutorials where I can get my questions answered in real time; being assigned homework; having to be in specific places at specific times all day long – this hits me as enormous culture shock. Never mind that little things like the price of bread are still getting me the same way.
Right now my life consists of culture shock, informing my body that it is not allowed to be sick until April, avoiding people on the bus, working out the intricacies of two referencing systems (APA and ACS – why all the faculties on campus can’t use the same system I don’t know) unpacking boxes, and scrambling to get homework done.
Basically this is my way of saying… I’ve got a couple things scheduled here at AtS, but don’t expect to hear from me much… at all… for a few months.
If this is devastating to you (unlikely though that seems), try this for a change. It’s something I’m nominally involved in, that promises regular posts on Mondays and Fridays, and you’ll see me there when it’s my turn to write.
Thanks for bearing with.
