I completed my first week of school on Friday and I can say it is going to be a tough semester for me and I need to figure out a better way to manage my time. It didn’t help that immediately after class I drove down to South Carolina to spend a weekend at the beach with my family. I spent a majority of the weekend stressing out when I was going to get my homework done. I got up early Sunday morning and went to a local coffee shop and knocked off my math. That was really the only thing I needed to do since it was due at 11:59 that night. I was able to enjoy the rest of the day on the beach and then later at a dinner show with pirates.
I will probably enjoy most of my classes other than English 102. I’ve never been a big fan of English classes. Boring. The course is mostly discussion based, which is hell for someone who has social anxiety. I don’t think I will do well in this class, but I will try my best. This will be my last English class I have to take, so I just need to power through it.
Math will be good this semester, I think. I took this same class last semester, but ended up dropping it because the teacher failed so hard (lazy powerpoint reader). This go around, I picked the teacher I had this past winter, so I know he will be good. I like his teaching style a lot. After this math class, I will only need to take one more math and I will be done with it.
My Japanese class only has 5 students total and its all the people I liked last semester in Japanese 101. I am glad I have the same teacher because I really like her. Its a very casual learning environment, which I really like. On the first day, I found out the class was almost cancelled because not enough students were enrolled, but I’m not sure why they let the class happen. I would have been extremely sad if my Japanese class was cancelled. Its my favorite class!
I was originally going to take a Black & White photography (film) class, but it was on a Saturday and I just have too much going on during the weekends this semester. I dropped it and enrolled in Digital Photography II. I have the same teacher from last semester. I have mixed feelings about the teacher, but at least I know him and what he expects.
I’m also taking Drawing I which I am not sure what to really expect out of this class. I am terrible at drawing, but at least this is a class for all skill levels. I just need to not compare myself to others because I am new to this and don’t know what I am doing, so of course I am not going to be producing some fancy pants drawings. It will take practice. I think it will be a fun class, though.
