The agony! The nervousness! The excitement! Oh boy, it’s the first day of school.
It’s that time of year again, I’m going back to school to start my fall semester. I’m happy to say I took two weeks off after summer classes (I got through Calculus! Yay) for a much needed vacation (I wrote about what I did. Stay tuned for more posts this week!). And now….it has come to an end.
I have to say I am excited for what this fall semester brings! I am taking another Calculus class, Physics I, Physics I Lab and my favorite, Synoptic Meteorology. Some of you may be wondering, what in the world is Synoptic Meteorology. Well, here is the course description:
“This course presents a descriptive approach to the structure and behavior of mid-latitude, synoptic-scale weather systems. Primary topics include the physics of synoptic-scale air motion, the role of synoptic weather systems in the general circulation, jet streams, airmasses, fronts, and the application of these to cyclones and anticyclones. Elementary quasi-geostrophic theory and weather forecasting are introduced.”
Is it crazy that I am almost falling out of my chair with excitement about this class?! It is pretty much what I live for.
The weird thing is, the same nervous feeling I felt when I was little kid the day before the first day of school, still sticks with me. I’ve noticed it is a different from the feeling of starting a new job or even meeting someone new for the first time. This is in a different category. I wonder if I will meet anyone new, will my new profs be nice to me, will my favorite profs still be the same? I will find all of that out tomorrow.
I will let you how it goes!
Also…if you are wondering. The picture of the top are some of the weather symbols you would find on a weather map. My favorite is the thunderstorm symbol!
