Head of the Class

It only takes one day back in a classroom to feel like I'm a student again.

Of course, it helps that it's on my old campus.

I spent the day in the food science building at Guelph, learning about ingredient labelling. Woot.

We had the usual retinue of students, with some grown-up variety thrown in. We had the overeager question asker. The latecomer who asks questions about stuff we covered before she got there. The know-it-all who compared Every. Single. Regulation. to the equivalent American reg. The one who answered her cell phone with an, "Oh, that's okay - I'm just in a class." The noisy halls, the uncomfortable chairs, and the powerpoint. Oh, the powerpoint.

But it was a good course overall, and I'm headed back to Guelph tomorrow for another. I think I'll have more coffee tomorrow - I don't know how many more times I can stab myself in the leg with a pen until I start to bleed out.

I'm trying to visit as many of the NaBloPoMo blogs as I can and I thought I'd say hi, I liked your blog.. :) Yes, I think coffee is the preferred option to stabbing yourself in the leg. Get a double shot, I usually do.. :)
