Well, I’ve now finished two days of classes. The classes are much more worthwhile than that blasted orientation. Each class section is only an hour long, which I found surprising because I was expecting classes to go for at least an hour and a half. Also, my classes seem to be randomly scattered throughout the week. One class only meets Tuesdays and Thursdays. Another class meets every day but Friday. Another class meets Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. Learning my schedule is going to be frustrating. The ABA requires students to attend at least 75% of the classes otherwise they fail the class. Another way to put this is that I’m excused from 25% of all class sessions. For most of my classes my grade will be determined solely or almost entirely by the final. Awesome!
Okay, I’m starting to ramble. I’ve had a lot of observations and thoughts, but nobody really to talk to yet. I guess it would all spill out here if I let it. I won’t though.
Labor Day weekend starts Friday. I might be driving down to my grandparent’s place in northern California. It’s only eight hours away. I can leave after my last class and be there by 8 p.m. Not too bad! My only concern is homework and gas expenses. It will probably cost close to $100 just in gas.
After I work out how I’m going to operate this semester, I’ll probably get back to a regular posting schedule. Sure I’ll have a lot of work, but I also will have no life.
Oh, one final thing. I have train tracks no more than 75 yards away from my apartment. Think about that in relation to my early mornings. Express your pity in the comments.
