So, my first two days of classes are over, and at this point, I’ve gone to all of my classes once. It feels wierd being a Super Senior. But I’m pretty sure I’ll get over that feeling in a few days.
I was walking around campus today (which is something I don’t do often) and I noticed some things:
1. There are alot of freshmen.
2. They’re trying to bring the 80’s back with full force.
I mean, I thought that whole ‘bring back the 80’s’ trend died out in ’06? As I was walking to the bookstore today, this dude walked past me sporting a Hi-Top fade, a Swish-Swish Jacket (idk the actual name of it, but that’s the sound the material makes) and I believe he had on LA Gears. WTF? I had to do a double take when I saw that, because I didn’t believe what I was seeing at first. And then, I saw this girl walk past rockin a dookie chain with her name on a platter. No lie.
Back when I was a freshman in ’04, I tried to blend in with the upperclassmen. I don’t know if it really worked, but I tried my hardest not to stick out like a sore thumb. Now, at the ripe old age of 21 (LOL), I see these impressionable youngins here, and I hope the majority of them make it through, MSU is a place that’ll drive you insane if you let it. Hell, there have been time when I’ve wanted to blow up Montebello.
I signed up for my Humanties requirement, and guess what it turned out to be? Female Writing in the African Diaspora. Not that I have a problem with that, but can the brothers get some love? We have some novels to read and I’m really interested in digging into Toni Morrison’s Song of Solomon. I heard that was a good book.
Calculus 3 is upon me and for the first day (despite showing up 15 minutes late), I understood what took place. I just need to focus and form a study group so that I can get an A out of the class.
I decided to take my Calc 2 professor over again for Differential Equations. Now I know D.E. is a branch off of Calc 2, but if you asked me what it was exactly, I sure as hell wouldn’t be able to tell you.
And last but not least, Engineering Mechanics. I know alot of people that have dropped this class the first few weeks because the work load is supposedly unbearable. At Morgan, I believe it’s a graduation requirement for ALL engineering majors, so I’m definitely gonna have to link up with some classmates to form a study group. I definitely do better studying with people, than I do alone. I get distracted WAY to easily. The professor seems cool, but he talks very softly so it’s kinda sorta like you have to strain to hear him speak. I sit in the second row and you’d think with the class only having 8 people in it, it wouldn’t be all that bad right? Ask me that question about a week or two before midterms.
Random Thought of the Moment: “Why are there so many editions of the same textbook, and which one are we using at Morgan???”
