Chaotic College Life: Week Three, Day 1

Well today went really well for school! The last couple of times I have went to class seemed like things were dragging but today it actually felt different. Maybe its was because of the simple fact that it some what felt right that I was finally doing something right that made me feel better. But then again with just saying that I can't say that that's a right explanation. Anyway, today marked week three and day one of being back in college for the Fall 2010 semester. Thankfully since I scheduled classes for later during the day I can be able to sleep in til about noon so I get to sleep in. So most of the times my day on Monday and Wednesdays will start with going right to school after waking up. So without further ado I will get into a breakdown of my college day! Also today was the day that I got my student ID and library card so I think I am completely good to go for the semester!

Today in political science was a different lecture because we are finally getting into something that I can actually start to understand. The U.S. Constitution!! Lectures are even getting really interesting because she gets us to understand what we are talking about by taking it down to our level...which is great for a professor to do because then she wouldn't be stuck failing us all. Also since its been a while since I have been in a government/social study type classroom I have been quite shy but somehow when I get my name called in class I take something that popped to my head that was relevant to the question and somehow got it right. That made my day so with that I just kept taking notes because hey, I'm learning something valuable. We didn't get through all of the chapter so I am not going into full detail until Wednesday!!

Oh the easiest yet fun class of the semester. When I first signed up for this class I first expected to watch movies everyday, then review or even just follow the text book. Well we haven't had to open the textbook yet this semester but Professor Bean [yes that's my humanities professor's name!! Funny I know] says that by mid-semester we should be in it. But today we got back our first journals...I got full credit!!! I was happy when I got it back because I was really hoping that I did good. After getting our journals back we started our discussion for the week...the war [mainly World War II]. We watched clips pertaining to the draft, Kent State University massacre, and a few others that we will be journaling about. Speaking of journal's I still have to do my second journal which I have no idea how I am going to make the Quran burning/Mosque controversy but I think I'll get it.

CIS 130
This is the most easiest class for me this semester because it deals with being on a computer and getting to know the computer. Hello? I am so good at computers that I could do this class in my sleep. Well today we went over what we had for homework over the weekend which was Chapter 3 which dealt with Computer Software. During the lecture my professor talked about Mozilla FireFox [a web browser that is widely popular right next to Google Chrome] and Google Chrome. I mention these two web browsers because these are the two web browsers that I enjoy using and highly recommend. I have both on my laptop and probably will always have both because they both are great browsers [which there will be reviews coming soon]. But at the current moment I am using Google Chrome. When the professor asked if there was anyone who used Google Chrome, I piped up and recommended the great features of Google Chrome. Since we went through Chapter 3 today and that's the last chapter before our first test, he dismissed class early without having us do a lab so I go out of class early.

MATH 121
This being not my strongest subject I hate going to the class but now that I have a teacher that takes time and actually takes my fears away in math I am starting to enjoy the class. Today we learned about exponents and roots which are things that start getting me confused. They still are as I have taken a break from doing my homework for this class to do this. But now I am not afraid to pipe up in class and ask questions. It was actually great to have one other person today think of the same question to go over in class so it didn't make me feel stupid that I didn't understand that question. So this class is starting to get easier and easier as time passes. Since math is math I just stick to it right aftewords because that way I'm not stressing.

Talking about not stressing, I think that I am gonna get back to doing homework as I have math homework and humanities homework. Keep an eye out for more blogs!!
