    I'm back to school soon, classes start Thursday, Sept 7. I'm not really 'going' back to school, since my university (Brock University) is about a 20 minute walk or 5 minute bus ride from my house.

    However, last year I did visit Dalhousie University in Halifax. Had a great time, but it cost me about $18,000, whereas a year at Brock (and living at home) costs me about $6,000.

    San Diego State University starts back up on August 28th. So I have two weeks to build my checking account and pay of my parents before I'm back to being broke during the school year.:(

    Oh yeah and buy textbooks! There goes another $400-500 bucks!:mad:

    Summer went by soo fast! Atleast next year my School District will start on the 27th instead!

    @Tanglewood: yeah having to pay for textbooks suck. Someone stole my Spanish(!) book and I had to pay for a replacement. Not anywhere near 400-500$ though. It was only 56.45 :mad:

    Textbooks are so absurdedly expensive, I think those companies make more than oil companies. :(

    My anatomy textbook alone was $210. :mad:

    All I got from it by selling it back was $70. :mad:

    Going to CO School of Mines soon...I think we have some kind of freshmen introduction class next Sunday, and regular classes start on Tuesday...

    ...but I'm all moved in - I got an apartment, which is lucky for a freshmen. To bad Mines is supposed to be insanely difficult...:(

    I "go back" to Penn State on September 5, although I'm technically not going anywhere. :p I go to one of the branch campuses, and it's less than 20 minutes from my house. I'll be starting my sophomore year off with a bang: I'm taking 20 credits this semester! :eek: I kind of screwed up when I enrolled and took some business courses and then realized I didn't like business. At all. Now I'm pursuing a Math major and a Business/Liberal Arts minor, so my schedule is pretty jam-packed. Here's what my schedule looks like for this fall:

    Calculus 3 - Multivariable Calculus
    Physics 2 - Electronics and Magnetism
    Asian Philosophy
    Macroeconomics
    Computer Science for Engineers - Basic C++
    Accounting 2 - Managerial Accounting

    I can already tell that I'm going to be spending too much time on MR instead of studying... ;)

    New teacher orientation the week of the 21st.

    Teacher in-service days the week of the 28th.

    Kids arrive after labor day.

    I'm eager (and rested) at the moment. Should be about 2-3 weeks before I'm ready to gouge my brain out with a spoon.

    Junior year should be sweet.
