1st Post from Lincon

This is my first official post since moving!  Needless to say, I've been a busy girl!  My house is nearly organized, though I have a few boxes that have not been opened.  Office and decorative stuff mostly.  It turns out that I don't really mind that I have no decorations in my house.  Haha.  I'm sure one of these days I'll pull everything out and find a place for everything!

Monday was my first day of class.  Wow, how odd to be a student again.  It seems like so long ago that I sat in a classroom and yet it seems like yesterday.  UNL is nice, but I have to admit that I miss Stillwater!  So far though, I have a couple of great professors and I'm actually enjoying most of my classes!  Statistics, psychology, and 2 marketing classes round out my schedule. 

Then there's teaching.  Yesterday was my first day of teaching.  Yikes!  I had 2 sections yesterday and will have 2 more tomorrow...about 160 students total.  I can already tell that one of my classes is going to be full of troublemakers.  Little do they know that I may be making a seating chart for them!  I was incredibly nervous before teaching, but it was definitely not as difficult as I was trying to make it in my head! 

I've also been something of a social butterfly, much to my dislike, actually!  Friday was department orientation, happy hour, and Indian food.  (The Indian food was a new experience, but I really like it, especially the appetizers!)  Saturday was the department back-to-school party, bowling with my fellow grad students, and Rock Band with Koch friends!  Getting home at 3AM is not something I plan to repeat, but it was a fabulous evening!  And finally, Sunday was free food at the Big Red Welcome (just like Lights on Stillwater) and swing dancing at a ballroom's country night!  I was exhausted after the weekend was over, and since the week just started, that's not a good thing! 

No photos to share this time; I need to remember to take some to share with you!
