I'VE GOT MODERN NEEDS!

Mood: crazy penis!
Music: CSS - Music Is My Hot, Hot Sex

The New Roommate is light years better than last year's cunt. As in, "oh my god DID HE ACTUALLY APOLOGIZE FOR WAKING ME UP?! HE DID! AHHHH!!!!!!!111 (hearts)"

Also... I have a plot. Excitement!

But yeah, I definitely spent the afternoon doing my crazy long French homework. You know, the homework due yesterday. Hmm. Apparently we have to set up a time next week for an entretien avec Prof. F, et je pense que je suis screwed. Hmm. Yeah, we'll see how that goes. Si j'ai le possibilité dire à qqn avec qui je suis confortable, I think que je ne might pas do plus shitty.

Oh, and on that note, I'm working on next semester's schedule. Dare I risk anything even remotely resembling a social life and take two--count 'em, two--language courses with Faith Beane? Russian won't be awful, but I've heard frightening things about her dans les cours du Français. I asked her about them ('cos that's just the sort of person I am), and she admits that she's not exactly easy, but I KNOW she genuinely wants her students to improve... it's bound to be a smaller class, and I thrive in small classes... and I could probably get her to pick on me so I can speak more... and we'd read a novel... but god, 8 hours of Beane a week? Could I survive? Good question.

I guess my real issue is whether I should risk a bad grade just because I want to learn more... or whether I should go for a good grade in a class where I really won't learn much. Decisions, decisions. I hate how the best way to learn anything is to make mistakes--and yet grades are entirely based on your proficiency in that subject. Fuckin' lame, man.

Mmm franglais.

On the language conundrum: i would reccommend taking the two really hard language courses, but then really easy intro courses for the rest of your hours, perhaps things that count toward your equivalent of core? Also, at that point, you should probably abandon the thought of overloading all together.

Things is, the rest of my core classes are going to be difficult for me--specifically, Biology, Trig, Statistics, and Public Speaking. I'll probably take the former two next semester, as well as the difficult language courses. I'll also probably take a 300-level Russian Cinema course that will count for a Russian major/minor.

But yeah, I kinda doubt I'll be overloading if I take French C&CII with that professor.

Ah. Well that was silly Alf. :P
does she teach over the summer? because i myself have become a fan of summer classes for difficult teachers. You can focus almost entirely on their subject that way, and it's a little better

haha, I thought I'd take the interesting classes first... & look where it got me :P

She doesn't teach over the summer... nothing Russian, at any rate. And if she did, odds are I wouldn't be able to pay for it. :/
