I'm still drinking from the firehose, learning all about working in this new world that I find myself in.

I've been drinking from the firehose this semester, trying to pass all these chemistry courses.

Drinking from the Firehose is being a part of Stan the man's classes where you get so much information in a short amount of time and lots of information leaks out.
I know that this is a lot of information, so I'm just letting you know. My class is a lot like drinking from the firehose: Lots of information so drink what you can.
