Tomorrow is the first day of school. I am ambivalent.
I have most of my books, all of my supplies, and my schedule is set. I just have to show up to class!
The next few weeks will be flying by non-stop. Roommates/friends moving in and out of the house/neighborhood will keep me occupied, I am sure.
If your neighborhood ever has a block party, I recommend that you attend. You may meet some interesting characters. I was introduced to an Italian woman who wants to teach me to cook Italian food (in exchange for me teaching her Persian cooking), a recent transplant from Texas with a child who wanted to know where to eat in the neighborhood (I was happy to oblige), an older couple with a friendly dog who lamented the fact that their son was not in attendance, and a woman with a young daughter from Ghana. There were at least 4 interracial couples and probably 30 children running around.
And I can’t even describe the food. 🙂
