    Looking back (way too many years), this song has stayed with me. Don't rush yourself.

    Thanks for that MrR,
    Recall that song as a kidlet. ..Music and smell are time machines.

    The hardest part about being back so early (technically this week is still our winter break and not many people are back yet) is that there isn't that much to do, so I have been spending a lot of my time chilling in the library and taking some nice early strolls across campus. Apparently there is supposed to be a big snow storm tomorrow, so that will be fun

    Cheers :cheers:,
    Dave

    That sounds like my idea of heaven. Back in campus early with no last minute rush to get settled and organised plus a huge empty library. You will be off to a flying start once classes begin. Enjoy!

    Since about 2 am, Bowling Green has been getting non stop snow. The whole campus was shut down and everyone, including myself ended up being holed up in our rooms. However being inside my room did have its perks. I was able to move some stuff around such as the two desks that I made into one large desk which created a nice little work space. I did go outside a couple of times and the snow was almost to my knees! From what it looks like, we have about a foot of snow here!

    Cheers :cheers:,

    Well there is nothing left to do but crack open a cold one, put your books down and watch it fall.

    Baby powder in the hair dryer.
    Ice water while showering is potent, but no mess. Retaliation is of a lesser order.

    This whole semester has been the toughest semester so far in my college career (and it's gonna get harder :panic: :panic: :panic: ). Classes have been keeping me busy. I had my first course for what I want to do which is teaching, and I had to spend time observing kindergarten I also had to teach them for a requirement for the course. I have been taking an Arabic course which has been a very difficult class because the teacher is a first year teacher and she isn't an "official" teacher since she is a Fulbright student from Egypt. All the other classes have been going well. I think I am going to pass this semester, it's just been a very difficult and draining semester especially with a job as a night clerk at a dorm which has very difficult hours.

    On the bright side, the semester is getting closer to its end. By next week I'll be home for Thanksgiving break which is something I am anxiously counting down the days for. I wore my 63rd Infantry Division pin last week on Friday in honor of Veterans Day and it felt good to be wearing that. The Geiser family continues to show their appreciation for what I did for Mr. Geiser, but I am always thankful to them for giving me the chance to be a part of Eddie's last chapter of his life.

    I miss coming here on a regular basis, but with the semester starting to wind down pretty soon, I'll be able to come back more often.

    Cheers to All :cheers:,
    Dave

    It's good to see you posting again, Dave, and completely understand the need to take a hiatus for your studies. I'm impressed that you are taking on Arabic. I studies Koine Greek which was challenging, but it had some familiarity since much of the English language is based on Latin and Greek. Anyway, keep pressing on. Hard work always pays off in the end and sometimes in ways we don't anticipate.

    As an old, is it really true that there are safe spaces for students who feel that they are overwhelmed by...by stuff that makes them uncomfortable?
    Back in my day, if anyone started crying or whining for less than reasonable reasons- they were mercilessly verbally abused.
    The way it should be today...shame the pussies. Crying snowflakes- we'd take extra time and pleasure to torment.
    Don't want to ask USMCPrice how snowflakes are handled in the marines. ..i may have to seek a safe space just to listen.
    I suggest we move the snowflakes to France/Germany/Belgium, where their special needs can be more easily addressed.
