So... its my second week this semester and I don't like any of my classes. I'm taking ALG 027 MTWR, ENGL 162 MWF, and Intro to Sociology MWF. On T/R I also have Intro to ECE - which is completely dumb because its what I did in my junior and senior year of high school because I went to a joint vocational school for ECE for two years

My Soc teacher is from Africa, and he's really cool, but I'm having a really hard time understanding him lol. Plus the begining work is pretty boring, scientific method, statistics and stuff. Real hard, and real exciting
My English teacher is a fruit cake. He says "anywho" and rambles about video games and brainstorming. We have 9 Cinderella stories to read and summarize by Friday. Which I also did at the JVS...

I'm also MAD as heck, because the professor just told me last Thurs that the classes that I'm supposed to be exempt from (along with 3 or 4 other students in the same Intro to ECE class) are out the window. Apparently, my instructor of ECE at the JVS let the credential hours "expire", therefore making the classes that we took for the past 2yrs, that counted as several college credits, useless. Needless to say we are all calling and complaining to that instructor, and she is not calling anyone back. I am calling her supervisor tomorrow . . . They WILL fix this, or .... .... I don't even know what to say . . .

I love Psychology though (and Biology/Animal Science, too...), and I most likely would still be able to get my dream job with a degree in Psychology. Pre-vet is definitely not an option for where I really would love to work, so that's not much of a choice anymore.

I've got some thinking to do.

I hope everyone is having or will have fun in their classes! ]
Wow, do you have some thinking to do. If you need someone who can be objective to bounce ideas of off, lemme know.

That's odd- that classes after 5 run on Tuesday? What's with school starting in the middle of the week anyways? My first day was today and it's so weird starting in the middle of the week. Why can't we stat next week after the holiday? I mean, really?

Did you get college credit for those classes? I don't see why you wouldn't...

ooh! That's neat. Sorry its hard to understand him, though. That can make class really difficult. Once you get past the boring stuff, things will get more exciting.

Whoa. Big mess up. You don't let up on them. That needs to be fixed. They can't waste your time, or your money, like that.

I think I'm actually going to have fun this school year... My AP history class is the most interesting, and my teacher seems pretty cool even though he's a... raiders fan... one of the kids is gonna bring in a ps2 and we're gonna play the teacher on Madden. If we beat him, we get extra credit points...

The only bad part is that we are giving 3 hours of homework, I much rather just be given the tests and skip the whole homework part. I already know most of the stuff they're teaching. I'm just excited to debate about current events, and hear about the whole global warming green house gases stuff (can you believe they're gonna talk about that in history? lol). I love hearing about how the corporations are responsible for destroying the earth and such.

AP History? AP Calculus I could tolerate. AP Environmental Science was pretty fun. But I could not bring myself to take an AP History class!

After I ponder it a bit more to myself, I'll probably start looking for outside opinions. Thank you for offering.

What is it with professors scheduling huge assignments to be turned in all around the same time? WTF. Like I have hours to work on each of their projects due at the same time... *grumble*
