First day of Classes

By Casey Tolfree

I have to say after a year and a half out of the game, it felt really good to be back in a classroom. I hadn't realized how much I missed the classroom and discussions on literature and having new people to talk with, bond with over books and writing.

I will admit I was a little nervous at first, afraid that I wasn't as smart or well read as my peers but I think I held my own. I read a good amount between high school and college and then on my own. I feel well-rounded.

I had two classes last night. Five hours of class - my butt hurt for sure. The day started off with Genre Development: Novel. It's a reading intensive class. 12 book. I have to do 90 minute presentation/discuss on September 29 about Mrs. Dalloway. Great. A preview of what my future in teaching may be. There's eight people in my class and it seems like a good bunch. A little quiet though.

My second class was playwriting, which I was a little worried about but my teacher is a riot. I think I'll really enjoy it, as long as he lets me keep my shoes on from now on.

I have a lot of homework this semester. It's going to be a challenge for sure.

Fiction writing is tomorrow night.
I'll keep you updated.


  1. There is nothing like a comical professor! Sounds fun! What's this thing about your shoes? lol

  2. haha... sorry to cut the blog short - I was blogging at work. (no school yet equals no high school sports yet) and I got called in by my editor to go over this feature I'm writing.

    The professor made us trace our hand and our foot and write stories from the perspective of our finger or in that case foot.

  3. perspective of my foot..hmmmmmm


    i was worried when i had a stage/screen seminar as well but it seems those teachers are always so much fun!
