I promised a longer blog today. It still isn't going to be long, but it will be a decent length at least. So, Tuesday was the start of Spring Quarter here at lovely Central Washington University. It was also the first day in my new place. Let me say, first of all, that I'm lovely my new place! It's so nice to be in a real house and have people and animals to interact with! Granted, it's an extra ten minute walk to campus, but the exercise is good for me. I've spent the last few days unpacking and getting settled, and I think things are coming along nicely. I was just putting up pictures, and over half of them are from Disneyland! I guess it makes sense though, considering I met two of my best friends down there. Those are probably some of my favorite memories. Especially the pictures from the night I got termed. It was definitely a bittersweet night, but we all had so much fun. Especially considering we had so many front-of-the-line passes, thanks to friends working on Nemo. Oh the perks of being a CM.
So, I've had all but one of my classes this week. They all seem really interesting. I'm pretty sure the four hours of sewing is going to kill me though! In my religious studies class, we have to attend a religious service and write a paper on it. I do not want to do that. Hopefully I can just watch one on TV and it will count! That kind of stuff freaks me out. I'm taking this class for the history aspect, not to go getting all religious! Luckily, my friend Elizabeth happens to be in the class as well. I sent her a text as I was walking into class on Tuesday, completely unaware of her being in the class! I definitely freaked her out when I sat down next to her and just stared at her until she turned around. Hopefully her being in that class will make things a little better.
My web design class seems simple enough. I took a 200 level class that was pretty much just the basics of this class. I love the teacher, he rambles on a lot and has an awesome accent! I wish I was more creative, but I'm sure I'll be fine. I got an A in the 200 level class. I just wish the class wasn't Monday - Thursday! Everyday classes are a drag!
As for my sewing class, let's not even get into that. I do not want to be in that class, and I would drop it in a heartbeat if it wasn't required for my major. I also really dislike the fact that almost all the FM classes are taught by the same woman, who also happens to be the head of the department AND my advisor. She is impossible and I have issues with her every time I turn around! The worst part is that she's teaching 2 of my classes this quarter!
My leadership class should be interesting. It is definitely an interactive class. I've only ever had lecture classes, so this is a nice change of pace. I only interact with others when forced, so in classes I'm always silent. In reality, I never shut up. How odd, right? I'm excited to see where this class leads.
The only class I haven't had yet is my fashion show class, which is tomorrow night. However, I won't be there, as I'm going home early for Easter. It was either go home on Thursday at 3, or not go at all. There is no way I'm going to miss Easter. An excuse to get dressed up and go to a fancy restaurant?! I never pass those up! Plus, I get to see my grandparents, which I'm looking forward to. They live about 4 hours from CWU, so I don't ever see them really. They're hoping to come visit me in Florida, but it depends on their bathroom remodel, and how much money that ends up costing. Originally they were going to come down with us for my birthday, but now plans have obviously changed. I suggested they come in September or October. I guess we will see what happens!
Well, I'm getting really tired, and I'm pretty cold, so I think I'm going to head to bed! Feel free to comment or ask me a question on formspring. Those things really make me smile.
