College isn’t what I expected it to be. TV does not depict how college really is:
- You’re not treated like a teenager; you’re treated like an adult.
- There are no bells that tell you class begins and/or ends.
- You get to create your own schedule, choose your own teachers and don’t have to go everyday of the week.
- Not everyone talks about partying, if anyone talks about it at all.
- Not all students are young – actually, I felt like the minority on Wednesday.
I didn’t expect to like it, but I do.
My mom is going online – two classes – and, for Composition & Rhetorical (English), she has already received a deadline for her first essay! From what I see so far, I think that online is – not only at your own pace – but more difficult and punctual. Sure, you can go at your own pace, but you have less freedom than what you would have inside a classroom. Make sense?
I’m thinking of creating a subdomain for my new “Tumblr” account, but instead of using Tumblr I will use WordPress. I found a theme that I like that I can use to make a WP blog look like a Tumblr page. I don’t know. Maybe, maybe not. We’ll see. 🙂
I created a new Twitter account, but for quotes. I decided it was for the best – I can retweet as much as I want and not spam my friends! 🙂 @LifeIsQuoted is me. :love:
My least favorite class so far is Speech. Yes, it seems like a lot of fun, but Cherie – Mrs. Henson – is one of those pushy teachers. I told my mom, and she just smiled and replied, “Yep! That’s Cherie for ya!”
You know the teachers that knows you – and knew you – outside of school first?? Yep, that’s right! They know you’re shy and quiet in a crowd, and not as talkative with people you don’t know, so they’re going to “pick” on you, and make sure you fit right in! D: Ahhh. That’s what I call a pushy teacher. 🙁
But she’s really nice, so I’m going to give her a chance as a teacher. 😉 Her classroom is her “playground”, if you were wondering where the title came from. 6birds is my playground. <3
I only have class on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8 am to 12:05 pm. 😀 I’m a Monday person, so hopefully Mondays will continue to go well for me? 😛
