The spring semester has come to an end but lucky for you readers I have summer classes approaching so let the schooling continue. I’m currently in my first full week off from school and then it begins again next week. Although I have a break and my mind isn’t clogged with school work that’s due, school work that’s due in the future or reading, my mind is still filled with the thought that it’s still not over and things have to be done like….buying books.
Buying books was never a huge stressor seeing that I always go to the bookstore, buy what’s needed and off I go. For this class it’s a bit different than just going to the bookstore; this summer course is being held at an adjunct building which is near my home (5 min away) compared to the 45minute commute to Shippensburg University (and I’m not driving 45 minutes just to get books). Being the queen of procrastination, buying books was something that was constantly on my mind but just didn’t put the effort into going online and looking. The thought of money came into play, wanting to wait for a pay check to come in before buying them along with finding the best deal. In the end I ordered the books last week which would leave two and a half weeks for the books to arrive. So far so good, got one in the mail and now anxiously awaiting for the second, so that still leaves my head clogged thinking about when my book is coming and hoping it comes in time. The book I’m waiting for is also the book that was suggested by the professor that we get a jump start in reading…awesome!
