Yesterday was the start of the Spring semester, my second semester in college. I was really excited for new classes to start. I had two classes on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and two classes on Tuesday and Thursday. It gives me a nice routine to follow. Basically everyday from nine to noon. Three hours everyday never killed anyone, unless it’s three hours of pain staking tasks. Which school can be at times!
First up was my math class. It is not my favorite subject, given I am majoring in criminal justice. Math comes fairly easy to me if I understand it, however, I still do not like the subject. All the math homework is online and quizzes and tests are in the classroom. I find that easier to do, but the program, MyMathLab, sometimes is difficult to work with. You have to put in exactly the computer characters the program is looking for, otherwise it is wrong. Other than that, I think my math class will be a challenging, but easy course as long as I turn my work in on time.
My next class is Philosophy. I can tell that this class is going to make me think outside of the box! Question different things that I am accustomed to. Overall, it will definitely be an interesting course and I am eager to learn different philosophy topics. I am also eager to debate a few philosophical questions in class. Overall, his grading process seems easy. I have a five to ten page paper for the biggest assignment for that class. Most of it is reading material, quizzes, and tests. I should be fine.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays my first class at nine in the morning is English class. Today, I slept through most of it in my bed. My alarm went off and I must have hit the wrong button and turned it off. I woke up and rushed to class, but it was ending when I got there, so I met with the professor afterward. Seems like it will be a fairly challenging course, as it counts towards my degree.
The last class is my Intro to Computers class. It is a class to teach the basics about computers and how to perform tasks in software such as Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. The teacher is really hard to understand. I am not sure what country he originated from, but his accent is very strong. I need to sit in the front to decipher what he is saying. When I walked into this classroom for the first time, I was expecting it to be a computer lab, but it was not. This is going to pretty interesting stuff to learn from the textbook and lecture on, then go home and try it myself on the computer. Kind of weird.
Overall, I think this semester will be alright. I do not think I will like it as much, because I do not have any criminal justice classes. It seems in the Spring, a lot of classes for students’ majors are hard to schedule for. I am not sure why, but I suppose that is the way it works. So, I plan on taking to C.J. courses in the Fall of this year.
Here’s to a new semester and a fresh start! No procrastination! …Right.
