so... what can i say about the first week of school besides signing my death warrant. as usual, a quick recap and some impressions that have been left upon me:
thesis prep- meh, lots of essay reading/writing/discussions... will probably fail the participation portion although it is about 1/4+ of my mark. will make an effort.
advanced typography something- did i fail to mention that i absolutely hate type as it hates me even more? at exponential rates? prof already wants me dead = will try to attempt to consider thinking about making an effort.
sequential narratives- finally, a class that i think i can actually enjoy. downside is, in a class full of illustrators that will pwn my arse. but the assignments are much more interesting and compelling. and wow, the (lengthy) lectures i get in this class are much more uplifting than those in GD. uplifting in a sense that regardless of the obstacles, your imagination is your soul that will drive you; it will pull you through. well, as opposed to you're competing in a world that will eat you alive so either have talent or go die and burn in hell. idealist, much? probably, but it's just that i'm tired of hearing the same ol' elitist bullshizz lectures that the profs throw at us.
social psychology/history of consumerism- it's gonna be tough, but presented and taught in a fun manner. participation makes up a high chunk of the marking scheme, so i best get talking.
graphic design- there is no way i'm going to pass this. unless the 'she struggles like hell and makes an awesome breakthrough' thing happens to me... i have NO IDEA how i'm going to pass this. yes, my own major ¬_¬" i will seriously try, but... iunno. why did i chose all the hardcore profs, i will never know. but most likely i'd be screwed over regardless.
and so ends mah cramming. it's only the first week so of course it will get worse. probably it's not as horrendous as other people, but my courses are horrendous to me = well, mainly type/GD, but um... that's what i'm majoring in?
being worked to the bone and have a prof basically say your work is garbage to your face in front of the whole class... that is something i should try to avoid, eh? now is the time i should actually try. i should make myself some more threatening/motivational pieces, yo. this year i must try... and not succumb to the evils of school. i will look ahead and do something... and hopefully pwn... or... at least get me my frickin' 60.
