First Day of Classes

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Yesterday was officially my first day of classes. It was a very long day. One of my best friends (whom I met in college) moved closer to me this year so we are carpooling to school. We have the last two classes of the day together. 

My schedule is as follows:
Tuesdays & Thursdays
French from 2:00PM-3:15PM
History of Mexico & Central America 5:00PM-6:15PM
European Union Politics 6:30PM-7:45PM
Macro Economics 8:00PM-9:15PM

My friend V, who I am carpooling, with has her first class at 12:30PM. I joined her and planned to maybe continue till the end of the semester but it proved to make my day much longer so I'LL PASS. 

I'll begin my exciting fun filled day with V's theater class. "Our" (lol) introduction assignment was to get into groups of ten or eleven and say our name, major, and year. We also had to include two truths and one lie and the group had to figure out which was the lie. My dumb self said UM IM 19, I WAS BORN IN MEXICO AND UMMM UM I WORK AT WALGREENS. & V was like two are lies?? And I was like 

I don't know what I was thinking. After apologizing to the group, we decided it was V's fault for making me say the Mexico lie (to see who was racist and not LOL)

French was pretty cool. I can tell I will enjoy the class. We did the classic Je m'appelle blah blah. There's an outside program we use called Supersite and it costs $$. I took a French class last fall that used that program and to my surprise it was still valid! I also still have the lose leaf textbook at the house, yay me. Long story short my professor looks awesome. I am looking forward to this class.

During my break I had lunch with a couple of friends. We chit chatted and sat on the campus green.

In my Mexican and Central American history class I found out I had it with a 4th year who was in my "politics of developing areas" class. So I was excited for that but my 120 year old professor is such a bore! I am excited for the content but I don't know how I'll be able to handle the monotone voice. 

My E.U. professor though  
To be honest I couldn't really get a feel for him like he was funny but seemed kinda harsh in terms of like his expectations on us. Like he expects everyone to have a deep complex reason for taking the course. And if he asks a question he'll like just nod, but not approvingly? Haha. Anyways I'm staying in the class because I'm not gonna drop just because I feel challenged. (& V's there #ayyy) I really need to like catch up on Europe (and by catch up I mean begin) because I know he gone drag me. And I'm not prepared for that. I think we have like discussions and a country essay? UM. I wanted his original plan 2 quizzes and a final. #StopPeopleWhoLikeDiscussionsAndExtensiveEssays2k14 

AND FINALLY my Econ professor was cool he had the basic 4 exams, and taking the top 3 grades and finding the average. Doesn't take attendance, posts the power points. My kinda class. 

So I'm thinking about it and I have all male professors. Algerian, Kurdish (ethnically, because I think he's French?), Turkish, and some white guy from Illinois.

I honestly had doubts of whether I would continue college this semester and just wait for spring semester but I believe I have it all figured out just hoping everything works out for me and goes smoothly.

that may or may not be a friends ipad


UPDATE: my professor is not French, he's Turkish too.
UPDATE 10.3: After getting to know him (for like one day) he is Kurdish, there's a difference #important
