Now that I’ve finally registered for my spring 2019 classes, I can relax and focus on the important things.
Like stressing about all the loose ends and hectic maneuvering in the classes I’m planning on taking.
Yeah, things went a bit worse than I had expected them to. That kept me busy this morning. Busy enough to push off the Gladeo meeting I was going to run.
Part of that came as a result of the classes that I know I’m taking but can’t sign up for just yet. Mostly pertaining to my Comm internship class, which I won’t have an invite code for until Monday, and my Honors Project independent study class that I can’t actually sign up for until I have my proposal signed by the Honors Program Director.
Already talked about my experience with that, how I won’t be able to meet with her until Monday.
But at least those two are essentially both on a limitless availability. They’re independent study courses and won’t be filling up anytime soon. A fact which is particularly helpful in regards to the honors class because I still need one more detail to complete my proposal:
I have no idea what to call my project.
Yeah, I know it’s just a “working title” and the decision shouldn’t matter in the long-run because it can change at any time.
But being presented with the opportunity to provide even a preliminary name made me realize that I have no idea what I want to call my book. Guess I might just call it “fantasy novel” or something just to have what I need, but I appreciate having a couple extra days to think it over.
Those soon-to-be-fixed issues aren’t the only things that made registration complicated this morning.
I had been interested in taking a film criticism class with my current Visual Communications professor. It sounded really fun when he pitched it in-class earlier this semester.
But then I tried to sign up for it and found out he neglected to tell us that a prerequisite course was required. A course that is not being offered next semester.
So it seemed like that was a bust, though I emailed him asking about it just in case. Figured it was worth a shot, I’m just not holding my breath.
Instead I decided to sign up for a vaguely similar Honors World Cinema class.
Nothing wrong with finding out a bit more about foreign films, right? It was early enough in the morning that I was able to slip right in too, as there were only eight seats in the class.
But then… Things changed. Again.
My friend Mimi pointed out that there’s a video games in American culture class being offered next semester.
That’s literally right up my alley.
So I dropped world cinema and picked up a 400-level American Studies course instead. Don’t know if that’s going to be a mistake, but if it is it’ll at least be a mistake I’m jumping into with someone I know.
Plus it’s a video game-related class, so it definitely won’t be a mistake either way.
While that essentially sums up my drama this morning, I’m going to hold off on doing a full schedule examination post until later. I at least want to make sure my whole workload is worked out explicitly before I talk about it in detail.
At this point I just know that my overall schedule is going to be pretty bizarre. So look forward to hearing some more about that down the line!
