Back to School!

I popped into Staples on Labour Day for a couple of things and instantly regretted it. It was like being in a toy store at Christmas! I felt sorry for the staff. This year I'm taking two classes a semester - all evenings except one on Saturdays. And then, unfortunately, I will have to give it a rest because I have literally run out of money to attend ACAD. It's not the cost of classes or supplies, but the cost of living while going to school, and I'm hesitant to get a student loan. In this regard I can really sympathize with the younger folk, especially after finding out how much it costs to live in residence. My one class is on science and technology, which I'm pretty jazzed about. The other is on Canadian art history. After looking at the class outlines, I think I overdid it. I'll have several essays and a group presentation to work on. I'm going to have to cut down on craft sales this year as a result as well.
