Spring '08

My school schedule could not be ANY more different than all my previous semesters. I have had all very challenging science based schedules combined with other G.E. classes that require quite a bit of work. I have never had room or time to take fun classes outside of my major, but this semester I am actually doing just that. Done with all my nursing prerequisites I just have some other requirements to fill. So that being said, my classes are as follows:
  • Photojournalism
  • Historical and Contemporary Aspects of Food, Beverage, and Culture in America
  • Leisure & Contemporary Society
  • Theatre Imagination
Photojournalism is so fun. I have wanted to take a photography class for as long as I can remember and I am FINALLY doing it! The teacher is hilarious and very knowledgeable, we get fun but challenging assignments, and I am actually learning everything about my camera finally.
The Food/bevg/culture class is really interesting. We are all in different groups (Ex: Italian, Latin, Indian, etc.) and with our group we have to make a food sample and bring it in for the class to try. I signed up late and I am in the African American food group...not entirely sure what that means? But it will be fun. We are also required to go to a restaurant and try 3 dishes we have never tried before and write a paper on our experience.
The Leisure class is interesting as well but it really does just feel like leisure. We learn about different forms of leisure, how to make time for leisure, etc. In the middle of the semester we have a talent show and potluck, we do a couple group projects...enough said.
The theatre imagination class is basically a theatre appreciation class...we read different plays, learn how to watch plays, theatre history, and 4 times during the semester, instead of meeting for class we go see a play. And the teacher is hilarious.

So anyway, I am very much enjoying the classes this time around! I have class W and Th, and Work Sat, Sun, M, T. Not bad at all...2 days on, 5 days off-a reverse weekend! I am trying to find a good volunteer position right now though. I want to shadow a nurse, or help somehow in surgical. Spring 2008. Good semester-I can feel it.

Yay Chels! I am so proud of you! You have been working so hard. I am so happy you have such a great schedule this semester. Finally you can get back to - life! I want you to teach me some of the things you are learning in your class about the camera we both have. I am getting really frustrated at my lack of knowledge. Maybe when we see each other at the end of the month I can bring it along.

Which reminds me. I totally want to get together when you are here. I have a craving for the tea room but I know it was expensive, so we can talk about it. I miss you! Love, Georgia
