Sophmore year

Well, last year was the answer to life the universe and everything, thats why there were 42 posts of course. Hopefully this year I will post more than 42 times.
The year started fast, I had multiple homework assignments waiting for me when I arrived. I also worked two shifts in the kitchen my first day. Despite the hurried start my first lab and philosophy classes have been great so far.
The campus changed quite a bit. All of the mobile buildings are gone now, the faculty building is complete, there has been an art room for painting and sculpting added, the mail room has been moved, and a complete room for computer use has been added with internet hookups.

My schedule for the year is great. Monday is the only day I have to get up before 9:00 and I have just 2 hours of kitchen work on the weekend. This is good because it looks like the homework load is going to be even bigger than last year. I haven't started Latin yet but i suspect it will be killer. On the other hand I haven't started math yet and I am thinking I will really like it this year. Lab is definitly going to be fun, my first question for the teacher was "do we get to blow things up?" she hesitated before replying "yes, in a controlled environment " thought another molment and added "or, a sort of controlled environment ." I guess control and explosion are contrary.

I have Mr. Appleby for two classes, theology and seminar, for those of you who haven't heard me speak of him: he has a doctorate in medieval history, specializing in the weapons of said period, teaches fencing classes on campus and watched anime in his spare time. He is also one of the most dry witted, but funniest, people I know. I have five people in my section who were in my sections last year, one of whom was also in my summer program section and two who were not in my section last year but were in my summer program section. Basically I know everybody but two people and I'm sure I will know them very well soon.

I suppose this post is going to be a bit boring because I have spent such a lot of it simply relaying facts. Hopefully my next post will be soon and filled with intrigue and deep philosophical thoughts. for now i must go prepare for seminar.

Sounds like a great start to the school year! I'll probably learn latin my Senior year can't wait until we can jabber in dead languages.
