First Day Jitters

Today is my first day as a FULL TIME graduate student. I am taking four classes: Counseling Theories and Techniques, Gestalt Therapy, Expressive Arts Therapy, and Therapeutic Writing. I'm so excited for all of the possibilities, but so afraid at the same time. I'm scared that I will be overwhelmed with assignments, Graduate Assistant work, and commuting. I just hope that I don't run low on energy this semester and that I make it through with flying colors.

I have two Assistantships in the Learning Assistance Program and I'm so excited about them. I will be mentoring first year students and running study halls for Student Athletes! I can't wait to share my love for Appalachian with all of these students!!!

I give you Eggers- my home from August 2003-May 2004. Oh to be a Freshman again...so many memories were made in that building, on the bench outside, and on the hill (sledding in a kiddie pool, on cafeteria trays, etc.).

So in honor of the first day of school and my 100th post (!!!), I'd like to offer up a RAK of scrappy things. I can't be for sure what all will go in the box, but it will be full of goodies!!! Just leave me a comment telling me of your favorite school memory if you'd like to be entered for a chance to win! I will draw a name on 8/31 at or around 8pm EST. I will ship internationally!!

Good luck! I love school... I soooo want to go back... some of my best school memories were my freshman year in college when I lived at school... My roomate and I used to go to the sundae bar and load up on ice cream and jimmies and get "jimmy residue" -- go ahead try it... jimmies (or sprinkles as some of you probably call it) leave a residue on your teeth -- especially when you eat LOTS of them :o)
