Grad school officially began for me yesterday.
Orientation has been taking place. Lots of info. Lots of new faces. Lots of responsibilities. I’m already tired just thinking about it.
It’s an interesting assortment of people. Most of them are fairly fresh out of undergrad. A few ‘took a few years off’ before going back to grad school. I’m definitely the old man of the two year class, but that’s no surprise.
One of my classmates, Laura, is one of the top collegiate shot-putters in the world. She competed at the Olympics in Athens. That’s pretty darn cool. Another is from the Ukraine, one is from Trinidad. Most of the others are from Hometown, USA.
We have to wear uniforms when we teach. I’m teaching Swim Conditioning, Exercise and Conditioning, and the Triathlon classes. Mindcrime will add something pithy to this, I’m certain.
Off we go. It’s going to be an interesting two years.
