yep, got me some glasses.
chris said i look like a teacher wearing them.
i hesitate wearing them at school...
see, this chick at work found out i was nearing on 30 and was like, "what?! you're older than me!? i thought you were 24 or something!" and she called me a BABYFACE. bless her heart!
but i think the glasses make me look older. and i am VERY SELF CONSCIOUS about being old at school. everyone there is, what, 20? 21?
my one class is filled with a mix of ages (my wed. night class - surprise) and there is a MUCH OLDER WOMAN in another of my classes. other than that, though, everyone is card-able. for cigarattes.
why should it matter than i'm older? i don't know. i guess, hey, i lacked the foresight to do this when i was younger! but, well, when it comes down to it, i got a pretty good thing going on NOW. only OMG, yesterday, chris got home from work late and it seemed like FOREVER.. it was 8 o'clock.. normally i would've only beaten him home by 2 hours, but since i was home all day, it was FOREVERRRRRR. i felt like one of the puppies, following him around, begging for attention. :D
as for the youngsters, it's really kind of amusing, actually... to listen to these kids on their cell phone, snippets of conversation. today some chick said, as she walked by, "and she told me i had to get all my stuff out now or she'd get it out for me" and another was saying how she didn't want to be no fucking whore or nothing and then, uh, it would seem that her interlocutor hung up the phone on her. ahh, to be young and dramatic! THANK GOD those days are over.
one thing that kinda sucks, and i really have to keep telling myself that it is the FIRST WEEK, is that... like, hi, the stuff is hard! i went from classes i didn't have to even THINK about to having to read shakespeare and plato's 'republic' -- much different. we got our first round of paper topics today in the literary theory course and i'm staring at the four topics thinking, "can i do ANY of these?" of course, i've only read one of the three stories we base it on so far, so i am guessing it's hard to even judge at this point, but... i am not used to doubting my ability like this, outside of math! i feel like this is a big leap into stuff i'm not used to.
but then again, it's the FIRST WEEK. and i take comfort -- the girl next to me, on her notes, wrote: "PLATO'S IDEA'S WERE...."
i figure, well, at least i'll be doing better than SOMEONE...
