09/22/2003 Archived Entry: "End of Summer ;_;"

Maa~!!! Today was my first day of school and thus, the official end of my summer break. ;_; Aa~... those were some good times, but I guess everything needs to end eventually....

As is not an uncommon practice with me, my first class was at 7:30AM. I like my classes early. ^_^; This particular class was Anthropology 1. Hm... I was chatting with my cousin before-hand, so I actually made it to class a few minutes late. I picked up a green sheet and sat down while my teacher went on about the class. He went on about how it's more important to take notes in college and how us students should work on taking good notes because the tests are open note. (XD XD XD XD XD) Now, maybe it's because I'm going to a community college, but I've been able to handle most of my lower-division classes in the exact same way I handled my high school courses: more or less not trying. Usually sitting in class, taking notes I'll never refer to, and winging it on tests. Of course, I know many people can't do that, but I certainly can, so I can't really understand what he's talking about. *shrugs*

My second class was Art 2A: Ancient Art History. Looks like an average art history class: i.e. informative, but boring. ^_^; What makes it worse is the fact that it's in a theatre... with dim lights... and comfy seats.... ^_^;;; It's kinda nice because I know I won't fall asleep. I have yet to fall asleep in a class and I'm intending to keep that record. I've had classes with similar conditions and I've come close, but haven't quite dozed off. I'm just glad I get to study some more archaic art than I have yet studied. Woo.

Third class: Art 15A: Acrylic Painting. OK, so I'm not officially enrolled in this class, but I am on the waiting list, so I'm trying to get in. I've yet to really dwelve into the medium of paints, so I'm kinda excited. Unfortunately for me, it doesn't look too promising that I'll get in. -_- And I've been wanting to learn more about acrylics for a while. Oh well, I'm wait listed for oils too, so if I can't get into one, I can try to get into the other. ^_^

You may notice a trend in my classes; that being a lot of art classes. Well, if you have, then it's not just your imagination, I am taking a lot of art classes. That's because I've essentially completed my general education requirements and now I'm working towards my lower-division transfer requirements in the field of 3D animation. This is one of those "I'm following a passion" majors. I've been an animation fan and gamer for well over a decade and I guess it's the only major I really care to follow. This quarter marks the first step towards that major. It feels kinda nice to finally feel like I have direction in my education.

Wow, you've never dozed off in a class before? *claps* And you're classes are so early? Well I think it's best to start at like 9-ish when you aren't half asleep but whatever floats your boat huh?
