It’s back to the grindstone…or library as it were. I had my first class of summer semester today, ‘Poverty, Social Inequality and Policy’, and purchased my new “used” school books with my very borrowed student loan money. Because summer semester is only 11 weeks instead of 15 like Spring and Fall, the classes are longer. So my classes are all supposed to be 3 hrs and 20 minutes long. Yikes! Thankfully, our Prof let us our early today in what he called “My gift to you.” He made it clear that he wanted us to get ‘our money’s worth’ and since we were paying for 3h 20min of class, that is what we would get. No matter, I have found in my experiences with this group, that policy classes tend to go LATE, not early. Fun fun. well, i’m off to go do something. not sure what yet. the icebox has been acting up, maybe i’ll see about that.
