Out With the Old, In With the New


It’s hard to believe the summer has officially ended. Part of me is trying to cling on, not ready for the cooler weather, and becoming a semester closer to graduation. The other half is screaming to bring on the football, and adventures with friends. I’m ready to get back into school, and say goodbye to working (well, working for a paycheck anyways). It’s sad to say that has been the highlight of my summer. Working. No vacations, just work. Now don’t get me wrong, I love my Brixx family. They watched me grow up from the 16 year old mute hostess to a 20 year old server who had more than her fair share to say. However, I do not plan on making a living for the rest of my life by waiting tables.

To get past waiting tables, school must start again so I can actually get my degree. This year was definitely the most laid back first day I have had in the past three years. My only “class” was my GC 340 lab. Needless to say I was bored until about 2 o’clock when I finally got to go somewhere. The worst part was trying to find a place to park. Godfrey is in about the absolute worst location for a commuter…there is no where close by to park! Walking over from C-02 was far from fun. I’m pretty sure my leg muscles will be larger than my brothers (who lives on campus) when I return home for the summer. No joke. Anyways, I digress. I missed out on the chance to take 340 in the spring due to my semester internship. I was able to see a lot of photography work that my friends who didn’t intern did, and it got me really excited. I am definitely looking forward to learning how to take better photographs and having the opportunity to use (and own) an SLR camera. The photos from this summer just goes to show I have so much to learn (because of course my family will want me to teach them everything). I think it will be a lot of fun though, and make this the best graphics class I’ve taken to date.
