Fight for Class

Happy Tuesday! Today is the day for rising sophomores to register classes for this fall. It is both an exciting day and an extremely exhausting day.


A course schedule
Rising sophomores always register after rising seniors and rising juniors, which is reasonable, but it’s really stressful for us. Last night, I checked the spots left in each class I want to take. Everything was fine except Drawing I: there’s only one spot left in that class. I then decided to go to AEC to get a lab computer (I heard the Internet connection would be much better if you use wired instead of wireless) for getting that class because I really need it to meet the requirement of my Art major and also to take other higher-level classes. Last time, the classes I planned to get weren’t that popular, so I just stayed in my room and registered with my laptop. But this time I have to fight for the class.


I did wake up at 5:30 today, I did go the computer lab, and I did get a computer, but I was not fast enough to get that drawing class. The result is not very surprising: I got another art history class instead; luckily all of them are classes I like. Plus if I really need a class, I could always talk with the professor, so I’m not particularly worried about my schedule. However, waking up too early really killed my day. I haven’t woken up so early since last year, and I felt sick after eating breakfast. Since I didn’t have any class today, I went back to my room and took a short nap. It was like a brand new day when I woke up again. Suddenly, people’s way of greeting changed from “How’s it going?” to “Did you get all the classes you want?”


Now I’m looking forward to becoming a sophomore.
