I <3 You, Office Depot

Hey yall!

Well, I am *officially* a college student again!

I had registered for classes a couple of weeks ago, but it finally became real today. As I opened up my university email for the first time, I had a couple from my professor. One of the emails was our syllabus for the semester. Excitedly, I opened up the email and read all of our assignments for the class.

And then...I panicked.

I mean, really panicked.

What if I don't remember how to write papers?
What if I don't remember how to study?
What if I don't remember how to do educational research?

I seriously considered not going back to school. I mean, sat down and gave it some serious thought for about 2 days. Is the pay raise worth all the stress of becoming a student again?

After I had a major minor freakout, I decided to suck it up and just. do. it.

It's only a year long program. I can do anything for a year...right???

So I trekked down to the campus, bought my books, purchased my school ID, and got my parking permit. I even picked up a university tshirt, just to get myself into the 'school spirit."

Then I decided I needed to pick up some school supplies, so I headed over to Office Depot. it possible to be in love with a store?

Because, I'm pretty sure, that I am having a love affair with Office Depot right now.

What could possibly be so great about an office supply store, you ask?

Well, only these...

Brightly colored file folers

and these...

Binder clips, push pins, paper clips, and magnets...all in coordinating colors.

and these really gave me heart palpitations!

No, your eyes are not deceiving you, that is, in fact, a Sharpie Center!!!

Every single color and type of Sharpie you can imagine.

I was in Sharpie heaven.

I might have a slight Sharpie obsession. But I'm sure I'm not the only one :)

I also found these clips that I must have.

They say things like Urgent, To Do, File, and Misc.

But who am I kidding? I really should just save myself some time and get these instead...


Wish me luck, friends. My first day of graduate school starts on Monday...ahh!

P.S. Please, please, please link up with my Favorite Fonts linky party. I am starting to feel like the loser who invited a bunch of people to her party and nobody showed up :(
