My final undergraduate semester got kick started last week as I attended the 49er new year celebration. I was truly excited about the school year ahead, I have a job uptown at Duke Energy (starting Monday September 8th), I have great friends and great courses. I have a trip to Austria coming up in two weeks. Clearly a lot to get pumped for.

As I started my second day of class in Coach Hibbs’ Baseball in America, I was even more excited to hear him talk about how he would kick people out of his classroom for wearing gear from other schools. He gave a great opening day speech. I really wanted to stay in his class but I realized that I could drop it along with German to only take 6 credit hours, saving me time and freeing me up for work.

Now I am only enrolled in Thermodynamics and Quantum Mechanics. Thermodynamics should be interesting and intriguing, Dr. Elliot who teaches it is a specialist on bioenergy and is going on the trip with me and the UNC Charlotte BioEnergy Initiative to Austria. Quantum Mechanics is taught straight from the book so its easy to follow along.

I’m looking forward to graduation in a few months but I somehow feel as if my college experience is already over, no long being a full time student. When I dropped under 12 credit hours and my student fees got refunded I realized that I was no longer a traditional undergrad student. It is definately a change of lifestyle.

This morning I began the daunting task of moving over 500 saved books in my Amazon Shopping Cart that have accumulated since 2004 over to multiple sorted wish lists. And what a task that was.Before I order anything, I’ll need to read the 20 or so books that are stacked up in my room. I’m starting with Steven Pinker’s The Stuff of Thought: Language as a Window Into Human Nature which has me very intrigued after the first 100 pages despite my complete lack of knowledge in the area of linguistics.

Now I can order something from Amazon without having to save everything that is in my cart, and friends or family members can see the books I’m interested in… 😉
