back to the grind

Well, it hasn't rained more than a few drops for 3 months. I get to Banner Elk, and we get a huge wave of precipitation from the hurricane. It literally rained 36 hours without stopping. But me and Carson got the mountain bikes out and brushed up the technical skills on our course while it was nice and glacial. Actually, it wasn't bad at all, it turned out to be a blast. 

The standard "first day of classes are a joke" is over with no punch line. I actually had to take notes in three of my classes on the first day haha. At least they don't give you any hope from the gun. My course schedule looks good though: Ornithology, Principles of Ecology, World Religion and Beginning Painting. Should be a good mix of everything: difficult, easy, stressful, relaxing, all wrapped into one semester. 

It's different knowing this is my last semester, I guess last year I knew I would be back. It seems like I should put out the extra effort to enjoy my time here as it winds down. But, this is two straight text-only posts, and I know that's weak, so I'll make sure and get some pictures up next time,
