now that i've had a couple days to settle into school...
the pysch class is turning out to be much more interesting than i expected it to be. for all my whining about hating psych, i think jadine
was right, and abnormaly psych is going to be pretty spiffy.
it's also turning out to be an incredible amount of work. at least it's interesting work.
i'm having problems working up any interest in the history class. i dislike history about as much as i thought i would dislike the psych class. (engineering majors at state had to take two lit or two history classes, not both. i chose the lit option. besides that, two semesters of Russian list, even in translation, really should have been penance enough for anything.) i've cracked the book once this week, got stuck in a very dry discussion of the Louisiana Purchase, and put it back down again. unfortunately, if i intend to graduate with a sociology degree from state, there is no moving the history requirement. fortunately, it doesn't look to be nearly as much work as the pysch class. a bunch of reading, a post or a response a couple times a week, a midterm, a final, and a paper. the psych class, on the other hand, is a bunch of reading, 5 tests in 7 weeks, two discussions a week that i have to post in and respond to, a field assignment, and 4 other small assignments.
oy. we're done august 5.
i've got the Princess Bride in the player for background noise, but I've seen it in long enough that i'm having problems treating it as background noise instead of getting distracted. :) yay for stories of true love. makes me miss my Jeff.
back to the homework.
