Slacker Alert!

After the semester from HELL, it looks like I'm going to have a kick-back term this spring. I can't say how truly relieved I am about the whole thing. YAY.

First of all, I have that law and literature class. Not sure what that will entail exactly, but I know we're reading five novels. And that there isn't a final listed on the schedule. Either that means we're not having anything in the end, or we're doing some type of paper. Rock on.

Secondly, my three hour class on Monday nights has little, if any prep for class. We will be engaging in various exercises that we'll be told about that evening. It's A LOT of fun. We had this great X this last class and I've never had such a good time during law school. My professor could most likely be committed, he's that crazy. But I mean that in the very best possible way. Assignments? Read two short books and keep a journal. Dude.

Research class -- we're scheduled for twice a week, but he's only holding us to one of those. Textbook is recommended, not required. Which of course means mine is going back. (g) That's 65.00 to put toward other book buying excursions. YAY. And here's the kicker.. he's going on vacation next week. Our next class is two weeks from today. Hello.

I have an 8:15 AM class, which is probably the worst bit of news so far. But the great thing is that he doesn't believe in the Socratic method. Most of my friends didn't even crack their textbook and still did well by following along and taking great notes. Woohoo. I'd take this textbook back, too...but we'll see what happens. That would be an extra 150.00.

And the last class will probably be tough. But one class out of five ain't bad. Especially because 4 out of my 5 last year were HELL. Yay.

Anyway, I'll get out every day by noon -- except for Mondays where I'll have a 7 hour break before my night class...and Wednesdays where I'll have a three hour break between classes. How great is that?? I might even get a job once I finish FI. We'll see. (g) Perhaps I won't be completely broke this year. LOL.

Okay, enough rambling on about my was just exciting for me. (g)

Yay Jen.

What a nice way to leave your college career, on a good note. I'm so glad you have a semester of classes you will enjoy.

Well, the enjoyment part is yet to be seen...but it should be a lot less stressful. (g)
