On the Subject of Studying

High school = read occasionally + do homework right before it's due + not study

Recent college = read + COMPLETE homework in a timely manner + study

I actually enjoy the second one better, much to my surprise.

NOW, for next year. My schedule will allow plenty of time for studying... It's a rather awkward schedule, but that's how life tends to be with me. Maybe I like it that way...?

Maybe it's kind of light and difficult to see. There are also scratches, scribbles, and edits, but this is basically what my schedule will look like for the Fall 2009 Semester.

Why do I hate it?
Class, yet again!, until 7p.m.
And Tuesdays, seriously?!? Why is Mechanics ONLY offered once? Tuesday and Thursday nights?
Engineering has this weird tendency AWAY from normal hours. Maybe vampires are in charge.
But hey, at least I decided to switch physics so I don't have any Friday classes. Yet again. :-)
I also managed to avoid any classes prior to 10a.m. Not too shabby.
But if I hadn't moved physics, Mondays would rock my socks off. 10-2, no break, 2:30-4, then 5:30-7. Outstanding!
Also, I have no honors course. In order to graduate with honors, you have to have one every single semester, which means I'll be petitioning for honors credit in one of these classes. Extra work! Yay. Actually I don't mind work so much anymore (see beginning). Time management and dedication are worth it after all.
Basically, I don't hate it as much as I did when I told you I do. We'll see how I feel about it in four and a half months though.
Oh, and I also have engineering math with my ... friends. Ya know. Yeah. I would've had physics with them too, but I figured it wasn't worth such a crappy schedule. Actually, I could change math to MWF11-12 where physics was in order to have a better professor. Then Mech Design lab could be 1-4Wed instead of 5:30-8:30, but whatever. I want class with my friends, and much more importantly - I don't want Friday classes. My wrist hurts from typing all of this. I'll talk to you laterrr!

to upload a picture. click on edit that post. and then in the box where you type in your post, there should be a bunch of boxes along the top. like a way to set font, font size, bold, etc. and if you look more towards the right of the big box, there's a picture and a movie film icon. click on the picture icon and upload your pic. then you can drag it to wherever you want within your post. so basically, login, click on edit this particular post, click the picture box, and upload :).

i'm not yet totally sold on the studying thing...

I know how to upload a picture. I just don't really know how to put my schedule as a picture. Maybe I'll just scan and save it. I didn't think of that. Well..... til now, of course. I've figured it ouwwwwwwt!

But you do it, right?

The only thing about your schedule that really, the classes you're taking. No languages or English or history or art??? You're going to start dreaming in math (rather than English). Why is your earliest class 10? I mean, you're a morning person.............Whatever you do, avoid 8 straight hours of class with all your might! I don't want your to get morning sickness like me lol. You should see my schedule for next semester AT RICE. We will be living approximately 5 miles away from each other!!!!! which is closer than in Crosby!!! and it looks like we can have lunch on tuesdays, wednesdays, or thursdays!!!! and dinner at some point, except not on wednesdays or thursdays cuz i'll be practicing for the MOB!! ps. i just found out that you don't have to go to Rice to be in the MOB....i'm just saying....if you want to play a trombone in a scatter band.....all you have to do is show up to a practice.....

Brianna said...

Woah. I could be in the MOB with you???
Would I have to find my own instrument...?

Yeah, you're right though, the schedule's not really that bad. I just LOVED my schedule this semester. I really wanted and basically expected something very similar. It's okay though. I'm open. And I'm uber excited. It isn't very balanced though. But I know I can handle it. I'm really turning into a college kid, I think.
