I registered for spring semester classes last week. I’m pretty excited about the HIST 103 class (History of World Civilization to 1500) but a bit nervous about ECON 102 (Microeconomics). I have a bit of a phobia about economics after a bad experience in an inferno during my senior year of high school (long story …). Fortunately, the AP Microeconomics teacher at the school where I work is very nice and has offered to help me out if I need it.
Now I am in that awkward time between registering for the classes and waiting for them to start (February 22). My textbooks will be arriving soon — hooray for Amazon.com and used textbooks — and book geek that I am, I’ll be stacking them up neatly and then flipping through them, then stacking them neatly again. Even in junior high and high school, I was one of the few kids who was excited about getting new textbooks at the beginning of the year.
