I've got settling down to do.

I enjoyed the last eight weeks for their experience, but I am definitely looking forward to the official end of the transition tomorrow when classes begin. I want a routine, and I've begun to drift without one. Fortunately (and this is totally lame of me) one of my classes has a lot of assigned reading already that was posted online, so I've been tackling that as a way to get ahead and try to get my study habits in line. Focus has really been lacking otherwise; I stopped unpacking my bedroom days ago, even though there is still a lot left to do.

On the level of gripes, the day after Labor Day is a poor first day of classes. I'm trying to marshal resources, including books, the funds that financial aid is releasing to me to buy a new computer, and signoff from my advisor on my class schedule, and I obviously am not getting very far. I can put on my Patient Pants and wait until tomorrow, but it'd be nice if I didn't have to so I could move on.

One errand I did manage to accomplish today was getting a new phone. The Verizon Wireless sales pitch made me feel like I was an 80 year old buying a used car, but in the end I got a new phone and not the pile of crap accessories they wanted to give me. And I'll mail in a $50 rebate shortly that will make my total price paid reasonably low. Also? Lecturing me on how it isn't secure to save text messages for a long time when I asked a totally different question is not endearing. I stick with them because the service is good and not that expensive, but oh do I dread ever going into a storefront.

Time to do more legal reading, in the absence of anything else to do. And perhaps some laundry will occur, too.
