School update

Let it suffice to say.... school is taking over my life! School and Kodi, actually. Can't leave out the Kodester!

Speech: Okay, I don't like the fact that it's at seven in the morning. But, so far, I've only showed up late for one class - and even then, it was only five minutes. But this class is totally worth getting up at six every morning. My speech teacher is great; she's interesting, helpful, and all around awesome. And our speech assignments are fun, too.

English: TAKE IT AWAY!!! I can't wait until this class is over and done with. Then it's NO MORE ENGLISH FOR ME!!! So far, we've had to write three summaries, and two logs. That's not including smaller assignments. But it isn't really the amount of homework that bugs me - it's the fact that NONE of the reading for this class could remotely qualify as "interesting". It's a definite challenge to write an interesting summary of an article that isn't interesting in the least.

Macro: Awesome. Complicated, but extremely interesting, and there's lots of numbers! I work well with numbers - not necessarily with remembering statistics, but I like calculating. And it's just... well, interesting! I can apply it to everything and say "now I know how this works!"

Sociology: Cool, but hard. A lot of memorization that needs to happen, but it's all very interesting. I dislike the fact that I have to interview people for this class, though... it's a shy person's worst nightmare.

History: I LOVE THIS CLASS!!! The instructor is a really cool guy who's teaching just because, well, he likes to teach and he loves history. Everything is interesting, and very easily understood. The projects are fun, too, and it's not that much work. There are "pop" quizzes in this class, but we always know that they're going to be within a week of the actual test... so they aren't exactly "pop" quizzes, which is cool.

And, last but not least: Pipe Organ(!): very neat. By far my favorite class! I really like my teacher; fun, but extremely nitpicky and a total perfectionist. I love it!
I think I'm starting to get the hang of making music with my feet, rather than just fumbling around. Very handy when you're playing the organ. I'm figuring out all the different stops now, too... it's taking me long enough. Though it doesn't help that all the stops on the organ are labeled in German...
