I. Am. Not. Happy. With. This. Upcoming. Term’s. Schedule.
I seriously am not. Here I am, with nine more classes to go before I complete my BA, and I am struggling to find classes that I can take. These are my choices…and do excuse the military time.
Face-to-Face Classes ~ January 22 to March 17
* BMGT 380: Business Law I @ Tues/Thurs 1800 ~ 2100
* ENGL 388Wa: Bible as Literature @ Sat 0900 ~ 1600
— Business Law textbook cost $135.00 #&*$#()$#)#$)*)#$ *inserts angry face*
Online Classes ~ January 29 to April 29
* HUMN 334: Understanding Movies (Have to rent or buy eight movies X_X;; including the textbook)
* JAPN 334: Japanese Life and Culture II
* SOCY 300: American Society
AUGH! Yes, I can just take the two face-to-face classes and have no problems with it, but I swore to myself that I’d NEVER take a business, accounting, economic, or management classes, and Business Law does not cut out for me at all! Not to mention, LAW?! Government in itself is a foreign concept that I will never grasp in my lifetime. Plus, the book’s price nearly gave me a heart attack today when I looked it up online.
The choice of the English class thrills me just as much as I want to go get a flu shot. Bible as Literature? For an Atheist like me? For someone who don’t even have a clue on reading that book? GROWL! Unfortunately, I will end up taking it…no choice there, really, since that’s my freaking major.
As for the online classes, they are pure evil, and to be considered a full-time student, I have to take one face-to-face and TWO of those. The workload is extremely brutal (especially if taking more than one), and it’s so long compared to face-to-face class. Twelve weeks?! Okay, maybe the movie one won’t be so bad, but…nine movies? And most of it are old stuff? *sighs*
I honestly could take four classes next term (and die in the process) and then I can be eligible to walk at the May commemoration, but I know what will happen if I end up doing that. I will end up crying, breaking down, and obtaining B or below to ruin my GPA. Oh, and I will have no life between doing that and still doing my volunteering/subbing. All the consequences would suck, so I think I shall stick with two or three classes a term thing…even though I really want to graduate by May.
Great choices, huh? Not in my opinions. Maybe I will take my dad’s advice and go demand for more upper-level electives that are not business-oriented.
