and so it begins (again)

Tonight is the first night of the new semester. My class is Theories of Ethics, with Dr Stephen Barker. It is not the course I originally signed up for, Mesoamerica and the Pueblo Indians, but that course was dropped for low enrollment. I think this course will be more challenging, and more of a stretch for me.

I am a pretty fuzzy thinker. I run on intuition most of the time. So sometimes I have NO IDEA why I think what I think, or why I believe what I believe. Digging at a topic like Ethics, in a logical, intellectual sort of way is going to be difficult. I hope it will be interesting too.

OF course, the start of a new semester means the chaos descends upon our household again. Hopefully it will be a little easier, now that we have the puppy in daycare a few days a week. Yes, daycare. Yes, for the dog. Yes, I am now officially one of those crazy "dog people". I draw the line at sweaters and boots for the dog, though. And Halloween costumes. No costumes. I think.

Well, keep your fingers crossed, and let CHAOS REIGN.

Oh my dear, I have the tranquilizer darts ready if you ever cross the line into doggie clothes ... Hope the class goes well.

I'm sure you will enjoy the ethics class. Going into it your brain may rebel, but it will ultimately enjoy bending that way. Think of it as yoga for the mind.

Wow. I really can't believe I wrote that.

Let me know if you want to banter about ethics. I did kind of enjoy the ethics class I took last year. Though I think my brain may never be the same ... guess that's a good thing!
