Classes started Monday, yes it seems late to me too. Especially since I still get home in time for Christmas. Not that I'm complaining.
My schedule was finalized this afternoon. What am I taking? Well, since you asked lol.
Introduction to Folklore
Ireland Uncovered (standard study abroad course)
The Archeaology of the Irish Medieval Castle
You're jealous. Don't deny it, I know you are. I'd be too. They just sound cool don't they! I mean, a WHOLE CLASS on CASTLES! Lol. I haven't been this excited about ALL of the classes I registered for in...ever. Don't get me wrong, there have absolutely been classes that I was excited about, but I've always tried to balance them with the ones I knew were going to suck (like science classes, no offense to the science lovers, they're just not my thing) so I could still enjoy my semester.
Here's what my schedule looks like:
Wondering why Friday isn't on here? I don't have class It just keeps getting better and better doesn't it? :)
So its been a few days since classes started, and you want to know what its like right? Well...not that much different really. I mean they're half an hour shorter time wise than at home which makes it a lot easier to focus on them surprisingly. They're interesting too, or at least they are to me.
I've noticed a few things that are different though. We're given a reading list so rather than a list of books to buy so thats a bit confusing really. And they don't tell you what to read or by when. I don't even know which ones are really important and which ones will be used for background reading. There's no real syllabus for the classes. We're supposed to get a 'handbook' for the classes. I don't really know what that means though. Its got me a little worried, but I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually.
Tell me what's going on at home. I feel like a petulant kid wanting to know what's happening. Updates people! I want updates!
