Week two has been far more relaxed now that Spanish is finally organised. So far, I like the second year pace – far more reasonable than year 1. Hell, even to use the word unreasonable to refer to year one is an understatement.
I don’t know many of the first years but the ye’ old blogs are starting to reflect the increasing work load for them. There seems to be a maturation process (survival?) that occurs over the first term.
One blogger, who shall remain nameless, mentioned how she didn’t understand why people weren’t trying to learn and read everything they could (I’ve heard this before, even felt it too). I’m not certain if she was replying to others in her class or 2nd year students. Probably the former because we weren’t back yet, but one main reason people who care start to do less and less during the first year can be (in my humble opinion) two main reasons:
1. There just too much to do
The nice part for the first couple weeks of year 2 is that I have enough time to read for my classes and actually prepare. I’m not doing it because I’m afraid that the teacher will give me a B, but actually want to learn this stuff. Frankly, it’s pretty cool.
The second year classes are good too. Grant and I are still in the chase for a second year project, but my other three classes are good. Analytical marketing, Negotiations and Spanish round out my term with Entrepreneurial Finance (or something like that) waiting at the end of term.
Anal marketing has lived up to its billing and negotiations has been a lot of fun.
Tattoo is this weekend. I’m psyched that I’ll actually get to walk around this year instead of sitting on a bench with crutches. Sometimes it’s the small things that really matter.
