First Thoughts About Second Semester

My History class is in the Chemistry Building and my English class is in the Computer Science building. What the chunks? So I’ve just completed my third day of my second semester of my first year. Let’s see what I have to say about that:

I think I’m a little more confident about how well I’m going to do in my classes this year.

Mythology and Astronomy are my only courses that continue on as they were, so I know where I stand in those ones. I’m doing alright and I think I’ll keep doing so. My History class has changed, though. We’ve a new teacher to cover a different time period, and a new classroom for some reason to go with that. I liked our previous classroom (it’s the same auditorium in which my Mythology class was and is held) and don’t understand why what seems to me to be my largest class has been moved to slightly smaller quarters. I’m thinking that this term of History may be slightly easier, though. I’m more familiar with the time period we’ve reached, and also I think there’s one fewer essays to deal with, which leaves more time for other classes, which I will need.

My English class has been replaced with two new English classes. This is where I’m going to be spending most of my time this year. As I’ve already mentioned, I’ve chosen classes wherein I’ve already read, or at least owned, several of the books on the syllabus (Breakfast of Champions, the Maltese Falcon, the Picture of Dorian Grey, Watchmen, etc.) because that’ll save me time, but also I can say I’m genuinely interested in all of those (that’s why I read them), so I’ve got that going for me.

I guess I should cut the rambling here. What I’m trying to say here is, so far things look alright.
