second day of school: i got into the class i really wanted, the natural history and ecology of the southwest. this is a class that meets tuesdays and thursdays from eight until five. really. i'm dropping the fiction writing class, because i think i liked bio better and with southwest you only take one other class. this is going to be a lot of work; today i'm reading some forty pages in my bio book and there's a comparable amount in southwest, with reactions and a class summary to write. it's going to be a lot of science work, and i haven't done science since high school. but i'm even more excited that i'd expected. so horray.
