the public update on the classes

I should probably wait until tomorrow, when I have my first class with my advisor, so I can give a complete report, but I'm having such a good day that I don't want to wait.

I am obnoxiously happy to be back in class.  I'm auditing a media class that I will probably be way too in love with because it's on fandom, my Japanese class feels like it's old home week because half of the people from my last semester of Japanese are also taking it (and most of them are the ones I liked), and I am frighteningly pleased at my theory class (that happened today) because the professor is awesome - the best combination of incredibly knowledgeable, totally approachable, and very very smart.  And she remembers things (of course that's dangerous because I'll have to remember what I say too).  Anyway, class was fantastic this evening, even if it did get moved from 2-5 pm to 4-7.   Someone told me they were amazed at my glee for school, but really, it's because this is it for me.  This is what I love.  Yes I'll complain about it, particularly via mid terms and finals and the rest.  But at the beginning of every semester, when reading is fresh and it seems like the future is simply littered with amazing things to read and brilliant people to talk to about them, I revel a little bit.
