Between writing for Fernweh, and the one or two papers a week for my business class, (more on that in a minute) I haven't been in the mood to write on here. When we started Fernweh, I promised my mom that I'd continue posting here. So far, I haven't really kept that promise. But, new month, second chances, all that.
I'm so glad January is over. January & February & March are my least favorite months of the year. February should be ok because of reasons (more on that later) and March, well...March 23 is going to be the best day of the entire year. Tickets for the Hunger Games movie go on sale on February 22, and I'm buying a ticket for the midnight showing. ;) March can't get here fast enough!
A year ago, as a high school sophomore, I started taking college classes. Today, I'm sitting in the basement of the science building. It's so crazy to look back on last year. I'm not sure I could even describe how nervous I was on the first day of class. It's gotten better, and I'm at the point where it's just normal. This semester, I'll be completing my seventh, eighth, and ninth college classes. And you know what? I like it a lot.
My business class is by far my favorite class this semester. The professor is this charming, older man who has a reputation for being incredibly unbiased, and maybe a little harsh, when it comes to grading. A past student referred to this class not as Business 101, but as Life 100, and he was right. He teaches so well, and it's not just limited to business.
I...ok, I threw a fit when my mother made me take this class. We talked to the professor the week before it started, and he told us that a large portion of the class is group work, outside of class. No, thank you.
Anyways, my mom forced me to take it. I called her after the first day and apologized, because I love this class. There really is nothing that I don't like about it. And that's a good feeling.
How was your January?
