School's In, Continued

Well, I've got a schedule for school, thank God. It took all week, but things worked out.

And I'm scared shitless.

Here's my schedule

History of Theology, 8:00 a.m.
Senior Seminar, 9:00 a.m.
Poetry and Prophecy, 11:00 a.m.
Cross-Cultural Communications, 1:00 p.m.

Macroeconomics, 2:00 p.m.
Critical Thinking, 3:30 p.m.

Outside of Class:
Student ministries

History of Theology--
Pros: Interesting class, great professor, friends in class.
Cons: This is a senior level class, and might be the tough one.

Senior Seminar--
Pros: Culmination of everything I learned, construction of portfolios, etc.
Cons: This is the one where my ass is handed to me by Jerry Fliger.

Poetry and Prophecy--
Pros: Mark and Jackie there to keep me company.
Cons: Everything else.

Cross-Cultural Communications--
Pros: Communications, Beth said this was a cool class.
Cons: Another 400?? When I could take a 100 level elective???

Pros: Interesting topic, and it looks like it shouldn't be hard.
Cons: Unkown

Critical Thinking--
Pros: Class with Dr. Elkins, a class I've been wanting to take for a long time and finally can.
Cons: I'm going to realize that I'm not as smart or clever as I'd like to think I am--and I'd like you to think I am.

School's In, Sucka

Well, school's back. It kind of never left. I took Winterum for the first time. The class was actually great though. It was Eastern Orthodoxy with Dr. Brian Shelton. I had a blast in the class, partially because of the subject matter, partially because the size of the class and the students attending, and also because of the professor. It was worth two credit hours, and for a third I got to make a video on the class that I just may post here.

Getting up was the hard part. Unfortunately, during Winterum, my workload was so much more than normal. This was my schedule:

8:00 a.m. - noon: Eastern Orthodoxy
noon - 5:00 p.m.: Work at Harris Communications
6:00 p.m. - Midnight: Work at WRAF

Currently, I'm also attempting to take 21 hours this semester (don't worry, including an internship--which will be my job at the time), and right now my schedule includes

8:00 - History of Theology
9:00 -Senior Seminar
11:00- Poetry and Prophecy (threes a charm!)

2:00 - Macroeconomics
3:30 - Critical Thinking

Internship - Video Production at Harris Communications

I need one more class...

Also, this semester, I'm going to be taking a practicum and two student ministries.

I know this all seems like a lot, and it kind of is. But for some reason when I know something *HAS* to get done, absolutely, period, I have a much easier time accomplishing it. I don't know what it is, but as much as I want to be done, I'm very motivated to finish things out.
