WIAW party time! You know you want to join the link-up party.
Yesterday (Tuesday) was the first day of my second session of summer courses. I’ll be taking Introductory Psychology and Management Skills for the next 7 weeks. I’ve already had to take quizzes and read 3 chapters from my textbooks! No rest for the wicked I guess.
I also just received in the mail one of the books that the RD that I’m interning for wrote so that I can read it and get to know a bit more about what she does. Is it nerdy how excited I am to read about diabetes? haha.
There’s actually quite a bit of overlap so far in my classes, which I always think is so cool when you can use your knowledge from other courses in other disciplines.
So far so good. I definitely think that I’m going to enjoy my Psychology class better than my Management course. It doesn’t hurt that it’s online rather than 3 hours of straight lecture with no computers allowed! Gag me. I don’t usually bring a laptop to class anyway, but I still don’t like it when professors forbid it. This is college; we’re adults. If we don’t pay attention then that’s our own fault. I for one am not distracted when other kids in class are on their computers because it’s just so common to have at least one kid typing away no matter where I am on or near campus. white noise.
Wednesday = Zumba tonight with mi madre. WELL, USUALLY. It didn’t meet this week because of the holiday. I like the class okay, but I just get bored doing essentially the same songs and steps every week. I know, this coming from the girl who owns workout DVDs which by definition can’t ever change, but there you have it. Of course I’m going to stick it out for the rest of the season, but I probably won’t be signing up for another class given the chance any time soon. Since I didn’t have Zumba, I opted for strength training at home instead. HELLO Jillian!
I also get to hang out with an old friend of mine later tonight. We’ve fallen apart a lot over the past 2.5 years and I’ve tried to reconnect so many times, and I’m still trying. I still don’t understand why most everyone I knew dropped me after the last day of high school, and I’m not getting any answers. But, keep trying I do. For someone like me who really doesn’t have
many friends I have to try to reach out and get back the ones that I used to have, right?
How do you know that a friendship is over and to just give up on it? – I apparently don’t know, and no one will ever come right out and say “I don’t like you, stop contacting me, we’re never going to hang out and I don’t want to be friends with you.”
Should computers be allowed in college classes?
