Alright, I'm going to update this baby for real.
I've been tearing my hair out this week over registering for classes. I've had the classes I REALLY REALLY wanted picked out for weeks, but we register by credit hour, so I've just been watching those classes fill up all week. I'm skipping Islamic History tomorrow to register. I'm shooting for: American Pluralism; Iran: Film, Society, and Culture; Theory of Knowledge; Writing Systems of the World; Human Origins; and Intro to Cultural Anthropology.
I'm in the middle of writing a five to eight page forensics essay right now. I really wish I had had a better professor for that class. Then I probably would still be considering going into forensic science.
Islamic History was a let down. The kid in front of me is a know-it-all, the girl behind me challenges the professor on everything he says about Islam, and the assistant who does the grading is a cunt and takes points off for not stating irrelevant or given information.
Calculus is a bitch. The professor does a great job lecturing, but the assignments are nothing like what we do in class. I could do well in that class just showing up for exam prep days.
US History Since 1865 is the best class I have ever taken. Ever. I love Mr. Kelleher, too. He's so knowledgeable and passionate about history. Every day, I go into class, talk to Matt for a few minutes, then once the lecture starts, I look at the clock, and it's already over. Time flies in there and I wish it would last forever. I really love his teaching style. And I actually enjoy writing essays for that class.
Theology is alright. Definitely not my cup of tea. Ironically, though, that's my best class. But that's just because Professor Nicholson is super easy. He's one of my two professors who let us take notes on the computer, so I spend those 75 minutes doing anything but paying strict attention to the lecture.
I'm really excited to come home for Thanksgiving. I don't have Wednesday plans yet. Thursday is Thanksgiving. Friday, I'm going to Target with Crystal at, like, 4 am for Black Friday sales, then Ray and I are going to Chipotle and New Moon. =D Saturday is D&D, thank God. Then Sunday morning, I'm shippin' back to Chicago.
Next year, Cayley, Katie, Michelle and I are planning on rooming together. And the upperclassmen dorms here are all apartment style. So, it would be Cayley and Katie in one bedroom and Michelle and I in the other. Each bedroom has a full closet, there's a hall closet, a kitchen, a bathroom with a linen closet, and a living room. So nice. I'm really excited.
