Today marks the most stressful day of the semester: the day we get to start registering for classes.
It gets bad. It's literally a full-out Battle Royale. You get assigned a time to register for your classes online, but at the same time so do a hundred other students or so. If you don't click on your classes RIGHT when your time slot opens up, the class will fill up in a second and you'll be stuck with your crappy second choices.
It's like being thrown into the lion's den, I'm not kidding. I've seen people cry over schedules, it's that bad.
Ok, maybe not that bad.
Thank god I'm not a freshman anymore. I have less people to "compete" with since I'm taking more specialized classes.
In my opinion, there are two ways you can go when registering for classes: go for the best teachers, or go for the good time slot. Somehow this semester I got both: good teachers and Fridays off. I don't think I'll be as lucky this time, though.
Here are some of the classes I'm (hopefully) going to be able to take next fall (keep your fingers crossed!):
1. Shakespeare In Depth
Via2. Introduction to Writing Poetry
Let's be honest. There is no way I would take this class if I didn't need it to graduate. Sorry Shakespeare.
I used to have a magnetic poetry set...so maybe I'll like this class?3. General Physics + Lab
5. American Politics
I'm actually looking forward to this class (if I get in) because it's being offered right during the 2012 election. I have no idea what to expect of it, but it counts as a Core class I need to graduate, so it's a win win situation in my opinion.
For any of you who are students, what classes are you taking next year?
