An Update!

School is starting to pick up pace again, so I figured I would blog while I still have the time & catch up on trivial things that I need to do.

Classes are alright. I'm not taking anything too enjoyable other than volleyball which doesn't even count as a class because I don't get credit or a grade for it. So sad :(

Chemistry is looking like it's going to be a HUGE pain in the ass, but I'm ready to fight it. Also, did I mention that I got an A in chem last quarter? I found out the Sunday that I got back. Anyway, the professor is kind of kooky. He reminds me of a crazy grandfather with a microphone embedded in him. Seriously, this man is loud. And he loves his chemistry.

Calculus is probably going to be a pain in the ass too. The professor sort of looks like a younger Rufus Humphrey. I AM NOT EVEN KIDDING. He talks a lot, probably too much. Today we started a review session and we only got through TWO problems in one hour. Might I add they were also fairly easy problems involving circles and lines tangent to them and inequalities? One hour. Even the fact that he looks like a younger Rufus Humphrey doesn't excuse that!

Also three of my volleyball friends are in the above two classes and they get really annoying because they talk a lot and I can't pay attention. Not conducive to being Asian. :(

Music in Latin America is going to be stupid. I am taking this class pass/no pass for my own good. There's one midterm and one final, and that's it. The professor is a bit of a pompous dick. He also made us purchase a book that HE wrote for the class. It's an $80 textbook. And he wants us to purchase the CD. The CD is $50. It's ridiculous. I learned an awesome Latin American music lullaby. It involves making your lips wiggle/flap so that you let out that horse-y snorting noise and then humming at the same time. I'm not kidding. :( This class is going to suck.

Volleyball is pretty cool. I'm not enrolled in the class, but I am going to be. AND I'M PRACTICING/DRILLING WITH THE TEAM DURING CLASS. So excited :) It's going to be awesome. It's going to be like volleyball e'reday this quarter. Okay, maybe not every day, but close to every other day with a lot of days being double days for volleyball. Woo volleyball class and then either intramural volleyball or open gym. It should be awesome and volleyball-filled. Speaking of which, I played four hours-ish of volleyball yesterday and I am very tired and sore. I jammed my thumb, my knees are completely bruised, and my shoulder hurts. AWESOME. I love it.

And that's pretty much it. Oh, and I'm also cooking for myself more & utilizing the dining hall less. Kind of cool. I need to learn how to cook good.
