My schedule is a fine example of my inability to decide whether i’m a workaholic or a slacker. I’m not taking any classes in my major, but i am taking three general requirements. Furthermore, i’m taking 9 credits of music classes, which will leave me a mere one class away from my music minor. So, there’s an interesting balance of slack and ambition. I really am interested in the MS/BS program now that i know more about it, but i’m really interested in obtaining my BA, so i really need to go and chat with my department about that.
Meanwhile, in terms of physical scheduling, i have class pretty much straight through the day M-W-F, but only one on T-Th morning (which is also a nice cross between ambition and slack, although i’ll be spending T-Th at the coffee shop). And, it all starts tomorrow, again. I don’t know how people at normal colleges deal with only having two semesters each year and such a lengthy summer break. I was going batty over the summer, and the only reason i can have so much leeway with my schedule is because i can make up for it by taking a full class load every semester. I suppose i’m just nervous that the classes are going to get harder… i’m intelligent and a good worker and all that, but classes that send me out to do something (like chases down obscure research at the Philadelphia Free Library) also intimidate me despite the fact that i do very well in them. Hopefully i’ll get back to the Comm classes in the winter, and i’ll have my general requirements done at the end of next fall. >sigh
