Haha, American Idol was funny tonight.
The second day of the new semester has just ended. On Monday, I had sociology, history, and English. I liked my sociology professor; she seemed really nice and down to earth. My English professor was really quirky, and weíll have to do a lot of writing, bleh. Same with history. My professor spent the first 20 minutes of class telling us how he was the hardest grader, and all weíd be doing was writing, including writing two papers, and all our tests and quizzes were essays, yadda yadda, and how all these people hated him and had dropped his class, and how there was really no good reason to stay. But once he actually started teaching, he seemed ok. I dunno, weíll see how it goes. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, Iím in a Spanish writing class, where I knew my professor from last session. That also seems like a writing intensive class. Iím going to have like, no free time. And then my art class. Itís 3-D design, and the studio basically looks like a shop class. By Thursday I have to secure random materials to make maquettes, or mini-models demonstrating emphasis, rhythm, symmetry etc. Luckily, I found a friend to drive me to Wal-Mart tomorrow. My back up plan was to walk to the grocery store and use pipe cleaners and marshmallows, but I donít know how well that would have worked. She gave us pictures of other projects. By far the best was a girl who had used wire mesh and rocks, and had sanded down all the rocks. There was also a girl who used paper cranes, and one who had used pistachio shells and paper clips. All the projects looked really good. I was looking at the project list, and some of these look really, really, hard. I donít know what Iím going to do. Itís been one day and the stress is already getting to me.
My only consolation is I got David Copperfield tickets for Saturday afternoon, because heís performing at our school. Yay, magic. Unfortunately, all the student tickets were gone, so me and my friend had to pay full price ($42) for nosebleed section, but I donít mind so much. My mum reimbursed me. Yay for parents! I also ordered the 3rd volume of Samurai 7 online. Those will be good. Oh, and I also found people I like to live with next year, so thatís good.
Other than that, I got nothing for yas. I hope you all have a good week, and sorry I havenít been making it around to many sites, I really regret it.
