Archive: This Day Has Finally Come

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

I saw this post from 8/20/2007 and felt that I should be reposted.
Today is the second day of classes where I work.  It has been a madhouse.  As I look over student records I am seeing date of births that include 1992, which is the year that I pledged my sorority.  I was a junior and I was on the four year plan.  At the end of that summer, I lived with my father and seriously thought about my life.  I dated a guy ten years older than me.  I entered Fall 1992 with a plan to attend graduate school.  Good thing, too.
I had been fielding questions from family members who wanted to know what I planned to do with a degree in Sociology and a minor in Pan-African Studies. I didn't know either.
When I go home tonight, I think I am going to have a eight dollar bottle of beer. 

To the archives after the jump.

Classes started here today.
I have been pretty busy and working late since last week getting ready for the new students.
I learned that this year's freshmen include young people who were born the year that I graduated from High School.
I knew that this day would come.
I thought that I would be ready for it.
But I am not....
Send Puerto Rican Rum....

The website where I found that picture wrote that in today's dollars that computer would cost $13,800........

my son goes to Uni next week, so on the one hand it makes me feel old, but on the other I feel envious, as it was such an exciting time in my life.
