I've been thinking about this date for months now. You could almost say today as been circled in red (not literally) on my mental calendar. Maybe 29 will become my "lucky" number.
According to Numerology (which is any of many systems, traditions or beliefs in a mystical or esoteric relationship between numbers and physical objects or living things--thanks wikipedia) traditionally the numbers 2 and 9 would be quite fitting for me right now:
2. Balance. Union. Receptive. Yin. 9. Completion.
Balance and Completion. It is technically the beginning of something (classes), but I'm working toward life balance and completing my bachelor's degree. See? Maybe there is something to it all. Then again 2+9=11 and 1+1=2 which goes back to the original "balance. union. receptive. yin." part. Receptive and open to new ideas and suggestions? Will I become a "Biology Maven" this month? I hope I can become a hardcore student of anything for only a month.
So if I look at the Cantonese number definitions:
2. easy 9. long in time.
Okay, so it's been a long time coming, right? That's how I'll read into that one. I can cross my fingers that this will be EASY, but maybe I know better than that. Let me restate my "new" summer motto: I can become a hardcore student of anything for only a month.
This morning I have been a bundle of nerves. I woke up at 6 and 6:30 then 7 and 7:30 then 8 and finally decided to take a shower at 8:30. I had a strange dream last night and all I can remember is a locker. A locker like in high school. OH NO! I hope my "stuck in high school at the age of 35' dreams aren't coming back.
I think after class today I will feel a whole lot better. I will have a syllabus in hand and some idea as to expectations for the upcoming 29 or so days.
Oh, and I can become a hardcore student of anything for only a month.
