So I was looking at my fall class schedule today when I noticed, 16738462 things have changed.
One of my Spanish classes has moved buildings, which sucks because previously it was in the same building as the class before. I now only have 15 minutes to run all the way across campus somehow?? My bike will definitely be in use this semester.
And then, I realized they had changed the fine print. The class is now an “online-hybrid” course. WTF. I was looking forward to being in the classroom again after a dreadful, pointless summer of Spanish online. The experience is completely different. True, while we do still meet on campus once a week, but I looked at the other section and the other teacher had stellar reviews (and normal class meetings)! While previous students of my instructor warned of "mind-numbing blandness" and "lectures so dry, you’d think the sahara was an ocean. Prepare to lose your mind". I would switch, but it would interfere with my Anatomy lecture which I REALLYdon’t want to mess with.
I guess you can’t have it all, but ughhhhh. I’ve always been able to schedule my classes exactly how I wanted them. It sucks knowing that there’s a better professor and class structure out there.
I was awakened early by the sound of my mom and dad sniffling in the hall, when I knew.
I refused to turn around and see, because I knew the moment I did, it would all be very real.
It puts me at ease she is no longer suffering. But this heavy heart I now carry will be very difficult to forget.
I love you so, so much Betsy. I will forever remember you as the single-most friendly and loving dog I’ve ever had. You loved us so so so much, and never failed to show us. In spite of everything, you were the first to greet me when coming home. You never skipped a beat. You brought our family so much joy and we could not be more shaken by your passing. Betsy, my goofy girl, we can’t thank you enough for the happiness you blessed us with.
My only hope is that when the end came, she felt no pain.
Thank you for everything Betsy and not a day will go by where I don’t think about you.
I might have to go through it again, very soon. :(
Please keep Betsy in your thoughts and prayers, I don’t think I’m quite ready to feel like I did when I lost Bruce last year again.
