Here it is. I am officially and upper-classman. Not just "not a freshman." Not just living off campus. Not just a junior by credits. But today . . . today it is like I am finally a REAL adult. Today was my first day of classes as a 3rd year student--junior by both credits and years. And, let me tell you, it's AWESOME.
1) Job possibility. Today I woke up and went to an interview for an English TA position, which went okay. I'm really not sure at all how I did. I felt like it went too fast, but you know, maybe that's a good thing. I just really want this job. I need a job, and this will be perfect: not quite as much money as I was looking for, but it'll be enough, plus it's something I would enjoy immensely. Helping students new to the English major realizing that it's not just reading books--it's so full of so much more wonderful stuff of gladness. He interviewed 14 people, which sounds like a lot, but really isn't all that many when you consider how many probably applied. And I made the short list! But I find out tomorrow, so I'll keep you updated.
2) Classes. Let me just give you a preview of what my semester is looking like. After my interview, I spent 2 blissful hours of classtime in my favorite building, the JFSB. Writing with England peeps, so we get to make new memories. I have just missed being around them all. And then Engl 292, later British Literature, which I am SO excited for. I have missed studying literature so much. German, which will be fun, but will also kick my trash. Up for tomorrow is Floral Design, D&C, and mehr Deutsch. Also, choir auditions. Sort of a last minute thing. I wasn't going to try out again, but it just felt like something I should do, so I went and signed up for prelims on Friday, did them Saturday and then audition for Sister Applonie during my Floral Design class tomorrow because I got times mixed up, but it'll all work out, no worries.
3) Friends. They're just fabulous. Plus I got a random compliment from a random guy I didn't even know while I was walking up to campus today. Totally made my day. Yay BYU boys. :)
So yep. Good day. Life rocks. :)
