Today was my first day of college. I have decided to take it slow because as a 37 year old, I was afraid I may be quite rusty. I feel like Billy Madison except I don't see an imaginary penguin running around nor do I subscribe to any dirty magazines called 'Drunk Chicks'..lol
Anyway, I am starting off my first class with a writing course. I had been nervous as all hell because I was scared of everything imaginable. My clothes are not the greatest. I haven't had my hair done, or cut since April so at this point, I'm looking like a long haired wildebeest in need of some serious night games. However, all of the fear subsided when I got into class, looked around, smiled, said good morning, and saw the teacher who was wearing crocs, stretchy pants, and an older style sweater. I thought, "Okay cool, I got this". I took a seat up front. I was one of the first to arrive. I thought I would get a lot of crap from the kids being that I'm a big girl. I was prepared to be bullied, but to my surprise; as they started to file in, most of the young guys took seats either in back of me or right aside of me. Well, that was weird..lol Must of smelled good or something, idk..lol But it made me feel more comfy knowing a lot of the youngens chose to sit up front aside of me.
Anyway... to get to my point. I had worked myself up all weekend long, and all night long while at work. My anxiety level is an all time high over this. The teach wanted to get to know us. So, she had us write some personal things down to her as a first class assignment, like; what was our major, what are our goals, how do we feel about writing, and to explain anything that may help her get to know us. Lastly, she wanted us to tell her something about ourselves that made us who we are as adults, something out of the norm that individualizes us. This would be something that she said she may put down on paper for everyone in the class to see. Well, the first thing that popped-up in my head that I was this extreme, crazy Kid Rock fan and that I had traveled and gone to more then 50 shows, and three 'Chillin the Most' cruises...lol
So, I come home after my first day of going back to school. Pour myself a cup a coffee, come into the living room, and there it is. The framed Kid Rock poster adorning my wall. It's a picture of him at a pool table in a semi-dark room with a lot of light coming in from a single window. His look is very serious with his eyes focused on a the cue ball ready to take his shot. Underneath it reads "RACK 'EM BITCH".
There's a first time for everything, but I never looked at the picture as inspirational until now.
~Smiles~ Yep, I got this bitch :)
