Back to schoooool!
The first week or so will be nuts, and I probably won't see him much myself. While he will have a full Monday-Friday morning schedule all semester, this first week and a half is all-day orientations, lectures, meetings, and events. Tonight, he has a banquet with the other master's students and employers. Tomorrow, after class, some cocktail & mingling time with classmates. Friday, its some scavenger hunt and class. And Saturday, we are leaving to spend the weekend out on the archipelago, camping (I think? Or it could be a cottage/stuga?)
And school starts up for me on Monday! I just found out that a space opened up in the program I applied to at Stockholm University, in the Curating Art master's programme. Stu & I had a field trip out to SU this week, and its HUGE. 50,000 students, so much bigger than University of MD, and I won't even mention tiny Mary Wash. And I was pleased to see that the Art History department shares the building with the campus library.
I have a much less busy semester schedule, with only 2 classes per week, for only 2 hours. Much more like the grad school schedule I am used to! I had a heart attack when I saw the hours in class that Stu had to commit to in business school! And for the mean time, I am working in the afternoons as a nanny with 3 kids, so we'll see how it goes. I learned yesterday that couscous is "blehbleh" (thats 1-year-old speak for icky) and that the 4-year-old wanted pasta with ketchup for dinner. Gourmet, for sure.
