Baack to shkool, baack to shkool..

So, school started today! Wahoo!! I am attending Pima Community College in Tucson AZ. It's a big deal here and there are like 9 campuses all over town. All of my classes are at PCC West and it is the most beautiful location! It's in the middle of nothing but mountains and cactus and it has a killer view of the city.
I'm easing back into full time with 9 credits. First is my social work class which is taught by none other than a time-warped Mr Jefferson!
Just kidding but he has the hair, mustache, tan tweed blazer, orange and brown tie, and brown polyester pants. He has a doctorate and his last name is Lewis so he even refers to himself as "Dr. Lewis". But seriously the nicest man in the world and I'm excited for this class. Next is Group Work. Very touchy feely but I love it. We will learn how to work in groups and explore our feelings. (Social work major requirement, I promise!) The teacher blazes in with a Hawaiian shirt and three pink pasty boxes. He pulls an entire coffee machine out of a closet and opened up his own diner. He's energetic and funny and I like his choice in doughnuts. ;)
And to close out my day, is my History of the Holocaust class. Very interesting but the teacher is QUITE strict especially about attendance. Miss twice, he drops you. The door is closed the second class starts and if you get there and its closed, well then don't even bother coming in. Very much accidentally, I was telling my mom about his attendance policy and was about to say "He's such a Naz-....." realized half way through the word what class it was and felt so awful!! I need to be very careful I don't say that in class!
"He's not a Nazi. He just happens to be a little eccentric. Most geniuses are."
- Kramer, in "The Soup Nazi"

Sorry I wrote so much! First day of class is loosening my bloggers block. (say that 10 times fast! bloggers block, bloggers block, bloggers block,.....)

oh my gosh, you guys! I am so excited that you have a blog now! I have to admit when you commented on mine, I had no idea who you were. I was like, "Natchel. . . who is that?" And then it dawned on me! It looks like you guys are having an awesome time in Arizona! The other day Bryce said, "Man, I miss Nate and Rachel! They were such cool friends!" We do miss you guys! But glad you like it down in Tucson! Good luck w/ school!
