First Day of School

This year is the first year in 18 years where I did not go to school. I am surprised that I am not more sad, but I am a little bit. It's weird that my whole life I have been defined as a student first and then whatever else I was doing. Now I have to decide what I want to be defined as. I know it is not a Senior Team Lead. A mom, teacher or photographer. Right now. A mom for sure, the others might change.

One thing is for sure, I want to continue to be a student. It might not be the first thing I am defined by, but I think it is good to continue learning.

So, I will be taking a class from BYU Independent Study. But I don't know which one. I think I am going to take on of these two:

The Expansion of Europe, 1400-1800
British Government and Politics

I wish BYU Independent Study had a larger history and political science section. I just have to decide by the end of this week.
