Recap: First Week of Classes!

So this week I started the Spring semester of my Junior year! I’m very excited because I stacked my schedule so that I would have the ideal semester. It’s all making me feel very smug.

I’m taking five classes this semester, and I’ve got a 16 unit course load (with full time being 12 units). So that’s a lot.

Here’s what’s going down this semester:

English 309
This is ‘Introduction to Verse Writing’. That’s right, poetry. I don’t write poetry. I’m not into it. It’s a little self indulgent and most people I have found that call themselves poets are batshit crazy (although, a majority of the ‘poets’ I have met were 15 year old bitches or were in community college… so there’s that). I was initially intimidated by the volume of poems we have to write. I always feel incredibly silly reading my “poetry” aloud, and I feel even more silly trying to make shit rhyme. But after the first class reading, I felt a little bit better. I just have to make it through and elbow my way into Narrative Writing next semester. Knock it out, on to the next one. I’ll be chained to my keyboard for this shit. I just feel like writing about my emotions in an artsy way is just so… lame.
English 436
This is ‘Major Critical Theories’, rumored to be major-wide the absolute hardest class in the entire program. And yeah, it’s required. And yeah, I can’t take any other class to fulfill this requirement. It needs to be this. So, I did my research, out of the four teachers who are teaching the course, I picked the easiest one (who also happens to be the most handsome out of all of them, just sayin’). On our first day he had us watch a clip from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Yeah, I’m cool with this. He does require us to do a blog for the semester, and it appears that it has the most required homework, but that’s whatevs. It’s probably going to be the one I’m sweating the most. We’ll see. I’m nervous.
English 452
‘Seventeenth Century Literature’. Oh yes, it’s on. From what I gather, it’s going to be largely Shakespeare and Milton, which I am really ok with. The professor is hella cool. She’s kind of older, adorable, and hilarious. And there is no homework, one paper, one final. Should be light, fun, and chill. I’m happy here, especially since there’s a random cute white boy in it. Oh, hay.
English 302
‘Introduction to Modern Grammar’. A rumored cakewalk. There is no homework. There are no tests. There are no papers. There are no finals or midterms. 100% of your grade is based on showing up to class and participating in your small groups. Holy shit, I hit the jackpot.
Physics 305
‘The Physics of Music’. Online. I already have a 100% in the class. You get credit for ‘showing up’ to lecture (i.e., signing on to the online site when the teacher lectures) then the rest of your grade is based on experiments (done online) and quizzes (always open book, obvs. And no trick questions). Another rumored cakewalk. I win.

So that’s what’s up. I’m excited. I’m nervous a bit, but I have a few freebie classes, so that should help. Whoohoo! Let’s do this.
