I'm almost halfway through my first semester at Smith College (eee!) and I'm enjoying it more than I ever thought I would. Having an illustrious background of four different community colleges over twenty years, my previous college experience was fair at best, more often meh.
It hasn't quite sunk in yet that I'm really here, does the imposter syndrome wear off before graduation? We choose our classes for next semester at the beginning of April and I'm really excited!
So, there's a lot of reasons to be angry about the government shutdown, but I'm not going to get into them. What I am going to get into is gushing a bit about some of the marvelous things we've been making from scratch.
