Staring at some fish...

What better way to celebrate the end of work and a future lack of cashflow than to go on vacation?

Kim and I spent last Sunday through Wednesday at the Atlantis resort in Nassau/Paradise Island. Most Caribbean islands have lovely beaches, and Nassau was no exception, but the resort itself was remarkable to say the least. The “lost city of Atlantis” theme has all the potential in the world of being tacky, but somehow the designers made it very tasteful. Central to the resort is a series of huge aquariums featuring a ridiculous variety and number of fish. There was enough space and enough fish to see schools darting around the entire resort. Some of the more interesting denizens included an ENORMOUS manta ray, several large sharks, and a collection of very creepy large eels. Unlike Freeport, Nassau was certainly large enough to have kept us busy for at least an entire week. We wish we had the time to visit Eleuthera or a couple of the other nearby islands. Perhaps another time.

So…tomorrow is the first day of school. I’m wavering between feeling slightly panicked and feeling at ease, almost bored, which I suspect is more a coping mechanism than real boredom. We had dinner with Jimmy last night, and he helped to get me in the right mindset for school, but I obviously won’t “feel it” until I’ve settled into the academic routine. While general chemistry is probably the best subject for me to ease base into things again, I expect to be challenged. But that’s good, right? That’s the whole point of this path, and a large part of my decision to pursue this career. So bring it on. Let’s see what I can do!
