This semester is going to be a little crazy. I am taking a Greek translation class at Millsaps. We are reading Plato's "Symposium," which is proving to be very interesting. I haven't had a Greek class since the spring of my sophmore year, so I was really really nervous about this class. But it is going well so far. Most of my Greek is coming back to me. It's also fun to feel a little like a college student again.
Lately, a lot of my friends have gotten pregnant. Several people from ABC are expecting, as well as a good friend who I worked with in Oxford. I have to admit, part of me wishes I was pregnant, too. Bech and I love kids and cannot wait to have one!
A lot of people have been asking me lately when we are going to have kids. Bech and I have decided to wait at least a few more years. Part of this reason is motivated by financial reasons. I don't have maternity insurance and babies are expensive! Another major reason is that I want to go to graduate school first. I would at least like to have my masters degree before I have a baby.
So thats our plan. But I am so excited for all of the people that are pregnant! I can't wait to buy them all baby presents so I can spoil their babies. I just started working for a few hours every Friday at a store called the Polkadot Pony. It is a childrens boutique (although it also has some really cute adult clothes, which would be why I am working there!). I am planning on using my discount to buy some cute baby presents!
