The good news is, my folks are all fine. I talked to my dad last night right as they were getting the edges of the storm, and the location they're in would probably still be standing after armageddon. My brother and his daughter are also fine- I haven't gotten any gory details about the goings on in New Orleans yet, but I'm sure that'll start trickling in shortly as soon as the phone lines are workable again.

School is going well, some of the things I was concerned about don't bother me, and other things I thought I'd have no problems with... do.

I was worried that being back in a scholastic environment would feel strange or weird, mostly because I'm so much older than the average student there. That... doesn't faze me. I guess since my last employer was ginormous and hired a lot of younger people, I feel pretty comfortable being around all age groups. The things that -do- bother me... I feel a little overwhelmed with some of the coursework and classes. I'm taking French, English Comp, Western Civ I, and Drawing I, and... yikes. I guess I should have realized that I AM taking a full course load, but I think it's one of those things that you don't fully appreciate the impact of until it whams you in the head.

I am going to get photos of my drawing homework to post tomorrow, as it's a bit big for my little scanner. If folks are interested, I may post some of the English Comp essay.

Back to the grind I go...!
