Campus, #1050

My first campus...the U of A!  Go cats!

My first campus…the U of A! Go cats!

I keep writing about being back in school again after 20 some years away from it, because it’s such a very big deal!  Well, I made it through my first day unscathed, and in fact, I can happily say that my first experiences with the whole school thing was actually enjoyable.  A friend who has already been through this program before described online learning like Facebook, and that is a completely accurate description.

I participated in an online discussion, and Facebook is exactly what it felt like.  We even uploaded photos!  I never thought that I’d get to know classmates clear across the country, but already a day into classes, I can see that I will know my fellow students well by the end of the semester.  In one of my classes, I even have to call or Skype a fellow classmate to interview her and introduce her to the rest of the class before next week comes along.  It is such a wise process!

My song of the day is called “Campus” by Vampire Weekend.  I love this song, because it paints the picture of the college campus experience I knew in my 20’s.  I can’t help to think about that time in my life a lot lately with this new endeavor before me.  College is great.  It gave me friends to last a lifetime and knowledge that I have carried with me and used in my career.  I can only imagine the same will be true of this Master’s program.  What a lovely thought.


About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
