School Starts Today

Remember that BLOG we all used to read that was really funny, and the (vain) writer updated it almost daily?  Oh wait... that's my blog!  Before British Lit ruined it for all of us.  And then I came back to it over Christmas break, like a long lost relative with whom I needed to catch up a whole years worth of news.  Well, it's time to say, goodbye once again.  Or, if not goodbye, at least, "I hope we can catch up once in a while over coffee".

School starts today.  Spring semester at JSR, and I'm once again taking 4 credits.  A "three credit" class and a "one credit" non-class.  What is the point of the one credit class?  No, I don't know either, but it's required.  I have my first class meeting for my 3 credit course in a few hours and in anticipation, I went online to read the syllabus.  Seriously, I was braced for the worst.  Last semester I wrote 16 papers one - four pages each, 16 1 page discussion question answers, 3 major papers and 1 18 slide power point presentation.  I also read Beowulf, Morte De Arthur, 2 shakespeare plays, more sonnets than I care to count, and several short stories, essays and excerpts from various sources.  

So.  This semester I'm taking Developmental Psych.  And it looks like a cake walk compared to Brit Lit.  I'm not trying to belittle my class.  I'm sure it will be plenty hard with lots of nifty reading and such, but there's 1 chapter per week to read, and 1 discussion post per week.  The bad thing about this class is that there are only 3 tests and they make up the bulk of the grade.  Each one is worth about 25% of the total grade... so in other words, I can't screw up.  But still.  I think maybe British Lit was the BEST possible thing I could have taken last semester because anything will look reasonable compared to that insanity!

So, off to class.  This semester I'm going to the Down Town Campus for my first class meeting.  I wonder if they know how to park a little better at that campus...
