I went to Seth’s film class with him tonight and it was like a nice, little movie date. BONUS! We watched Vertigo by Hitchcock. Next Monday is The Shining, which I have been wanting to watch for several weeks. I liked sitting in with him, and I kind of wish I had done that once or twice in the spring when we first started dating.
Now that I wrote about that, I guess I ought to write about the rest of my day was too. Overall, it was pretty alright. Not super. Not terrible.
Waking up at eight o’clock this morning wasn’t fun because I’ve gotten so used to sleeping in. I guess I will get used to it soon. I had a business class at ten o’clock: Fundamentals of Accounting. It is a two hour lecture , which is a first for me. Not sure how I’ll feel about listening to two hours of business junk… but on the plus side, it is only on Mondays and Wednesdays.
Next was biochem, which I had heard terrible stories about. The professor tried to make everyone comfortable. He said it would be beneficial to not let the opinions of former students cloud your mind — if you think the class will be awful from the get-go (because someone else said it would be) then it will probably be a bad experience. In any case, I was getting extremely dry-eyed and scatter-brained at this point of the day, so it was hard to follow his lecture too well. I hope I can be well rested for future biochem classes, in order to get the most out of his lecture. One cool thing is that he videotapes all his lectures, so I have the fortunate opportunity to review his lectures in real time. He also likes to sing.
My next class was a decent walk away, so I hurried off with a PBJ (for lunch) in my hand. I was trying to cross the street without being mowed down by a bike and I look up just in time to see Ian’s face. He said hi to me and I was so stunned by the encounter that I could barely peep out a hey in reply. I had somewhere far off to walk to in less than ten minutes, so I kept on trucking and gobbling down my sandwich.
Fortunately, I wasn’t late to class like I expected to be. Ethical Issues in Animal Agriculture is my 3rd class of the day and makes up my 4th consecutive hour of class. This is a writing intensive class, which means a fuck ton of little writings and one big-ass term paper. Not super stoked for that, but “ethical issues” are usually pretty interesting and I always enjoy learning about both sides of the issues. We didn’t get to get into much detail in 50 minutes. The professor is a major rambler, but whatevs.
After that class, I guess a two hour break. I used it today to do dishes and get some school junk figured out. But soon enough, I was off to Techniques in Relaxation. It is a 1-credit physical activity course that I initially took just to fill my schedule up in order to be full-time. Then I realized that a class about relaxation techniques could be a incredibly beneficial to me as I am taking these last few tough, stressful classes. I enjoyed the first day of class and I think that I am going to continue to enjoy it immensely.
I finished up my classes for the day after Relaxation, so I headed to Seth’s dorm to get dinner with him. It was really nice to get to sit down with him and talk about our respective first days of fall term. He soon convinced me to go to his film class with him. It lasted until almost nine o’clock this evening. I didn’t intend to stay the whole time, but I’m glad I did.
Despite delaying my evening plans a few hours, I still convinced myself that I needed to go to the rec center to work out. That wasn’t so bad. Now I’m here and I’m pooped. I still have shit to do, but I have a lot of free time tomorrow that I can use to do laundry and all that fun stuff.
For now, I’m going to unwind and hopefully get some decent sleep. Ciao.
