So I’m going to that New Student Orientation at my university and at the advising session I’m not only the only one who is majoring in a Foreign Language, but also the only one who does so in German. Hence, I get the head of the Foreign Language Department to advise me all by myself. How cool (if weird) is that?
That comes from me, who used to sit in lectures on English and German attended by 300-500 people. Now I’m facing language classes of maybe 10 people at best in German. Plus the German department consists of only two professors and they’re all “Oh we’ve heard about you!” when I mention weird schedules and transcripts. Man, I feel special now 😉
Anyway, the confusion clears up bit by bit and I just sorted out about half of my schedule for the upcoming fall semester. I’ll be taking a grammar and a phonetics and phonology class in German, as well as Education 1010, probably (because I have to…) Math 1010 (or Deductive Logic, though I have no idea if I’d get the hang of that or not, but it’d save me one math class…hm). In total I’m planning on taking 18 credit hours (probably 5-6 classes) and I’ll have to fit work in there somehow, but hey, I’m a workaholic, right? Riiiiight?
…Why do I suddenly sound a tad too much like Ares trying to justify himself?
