A Weird Time of Year...

So second semester started today. That means new classes, a new lunch, and lots of work for me. It also means my old classes are no more. This is always a weird time of year for me. Part of me wishes that it would stay the same. That second period I would get to go to Latin III and have fun. But part of me is incredible excited to have the chance to experience these new classes. It is a feeling I rarely get to enjoy right now, the thrill of knowing that I will get challenged. This does give me pause however. Do I want to be challenged? I think I do, but can I handle it. I have heard horror stories about tenth grade English. Will I be able to survive that on top of an intensive study of Medieval Europe? I honestly don't know, but I hope I will be able. Trying to just melting into my work usually helps. If I have a clear goal in mind, it seems to go better. So here's the goal: Survive second semester and try to gain a little wisdom on the way. Hopefully.
