Why aren't things ever as easy as you thought they would be?

I figured this semester was going to a breeze. Photo class that will mostly be a repeat of last semester's, but going into a bit more detail. Online Spanish class. That's it. Easy - right?

Oh heck no!

Photo class - 5 rolls of film need to be shot per week. Yes, you read that right, per WEEK!. How the heck am I supposed to fill 5 rolls of film up without just shooting nonsense? The cheap side of me is protesting LOUDLY.

And my Spanish class. How hard could it be? I aced French in high school - and Spanish is a bit similar, right? Wrong. Add to the fact I've discovered I am NOT an auditory learner, and my teacher assigned a ton of work the very first week. It isn't going to be near as easy as I thought, and I'm very grateful that this is the only other class I'm taking.

So much for looking forward to a relaxing semester!

And so it starts again

The craziness. And this time we're adding to it. School started this week. Chrissy went back yesterday, I did today. And Eric is now taking 3 classes online as well! I'm hoping our schedules will work to leave us enough down time. Last semester was a bit hectic. So far so good though! I even got to spend a little time in the studio playing with Aislinn.

You can see the rest of them in my flickr acct!


We didn't get as much done as we wanted while on break, but that seems to be the case most of the time. Never enough hours in the day! We've got a couple home improvement type things to finish up, as well as a couple that are in the plans for the next few months. We'll see how it goes!
