School daze

so… yeah… been busy. And not busy sitting on my butt watching George Clooney movies – not that there’s anything wrong with that! School busy. Turns out a Russian history class is rather time-consuming. I don’t mind all the reading because I like the subject, but those essays! ohmygod the pain. I don’t even want to talk about it. And apparently there is gonna be more writing in my future. Like the speech class isn’t terrible enough, I’m looking at having to take another English Comp class! WTH? I’m too old for this shit. I met with a counselor this week to go over my transcripts and what I need for not only my AA, but to transfer to university. ugh. Now, I don’t mind having to take another History class, or even the Science/lab – but another writing class?! Short stories, poetry? Kill me now. Oh, and I need to take a sculpture class for the AA in Art! blah. But since I’m slow-boating this degree business, looks like I’ll get to stay at Sierra another year or two.

Winter break

What do ya mean where the hell have I been? We were on a break! And now we’re back. The spring semester started today. In addition to taking another photography class and lab, I’m takingĀ  a “real” class: Russian History! Okay, all my previous classes where “real” too. What I mean is that I’m trying to take the last 3 classes I need to get my AA. Chris seems to think that while he is getting his Masters degree, I should go ahead and finish up my Associates. Jeez, when ya put it that way… So, what’s left? After fulfilling my Multicultural Studies requirement this semester, I’ll need a Health/Physical Education class (I’m thinking Yoga!) and Speech. flippin’ speech class. I have been avoiding that class for over … well… a lot of years. damn. Let’s not think about that. Russian History!! 9:30 am tomorrow! wOOt!
