Getting Ready for Fall Term

My classes are a mix of online, face-to-face and blended this term. The campus is still a ghost town. I am taking organic chem + lab, physics 2 + lab, world literature and GIS (geographic Information Systems). My labs are face-to face. My orgo lecture is face-to-face one day and zoom the other. All the rest is online.

Mom and Dad decided that E and I needed real desk chairs and working surfaces this year. Only catch, we had to build them! I got this cool new peddle machine for under my table to keep moving when I am sitting all the time. I really like it, helps me focus.

We also had a last minute coffee taste test. Our coffee is no longer made so we had to find an alternative. Mom tasted them and bowed out. Emmerson tried but just kept making faces and racing to the sink to spit it out. Dad and I picked a few new favorites and look forward to a fall season of iced coffee in the mornings.

The last night before school started we had fun playing Putt-putt and having lobster rolls. Back to business and distractions as we continue to live in this weird world of COVID-19. Someday we will look back and laugh, maybe?

Oh, a few last things. Es gecko hasn’t been eating much so mom is not hand feeding it to get it to bulk up. Going well so far! Also, earlier this summer was the SEmmy Awards at SPC. It is an art contest for high-school and college students. I entered one of my insect photos and was a runner up in this years contest. It was supposed to be a huge gala event but ended up as a virtual youtube video event. Still cool though!
