Second Semester Classes

Happy Friday everyone. Today marks the end of the first week of classes, and somehow I’m already feeling a little stressed even though the semester has just begun. Despite the initial stress, I’m feeling pretty excited about most of the classes I’m taking.

I’m in a global and historical studies class about the Caribbean. I was in a feminism GHS last semester and loved it, so anything living up to those standards is nearly impossible. Although history is not my cup of tea, my professor is really great and clearly excited about the course material, so I think the class will be all right.

I’m also in a design history and theory class taught by one of my favorite professors in the art department (let’s be real, I love all of the professors in the art department). This class looks at the evolution of design through architecture, furniture design, interior design, graphic design, and fashion. I’m incredibly excited for this class, especially for the fashion section. Learning-is-Fun

I’m in an audio production class for my digital media productions minor, and I’m not really sure what to expect. Our last class was cancelled due to technical difficulties, so I’m not even sure what this class entails. My professor seems pretty cool though, so I’m hoping it’s a good time.

I’m also taking a poetry class this semester, and I’m super nervous about it. I used to “write” poetry when I was younger, and I love reading it now, but I have never written a legitimate poem. I feel like it’s hard enough to understand a poem, let alone write one. My professor for this class is awesome, though, and we all snapped for each other after we read our writing out loud. I felt pretty at home.

Also in the English department, I am taking a British literature class. One of my good friends is in that class with me, so that is an added bonus. The professor for this class is very articulate and seems very passionate about the subject, plus I enjoy British literature, so I think it will be rockin.

Finally, I’m taking an interactive art class, meaning we create art that warrants audience participation. The other day we started making a video game app for an iPhone, and that was incredibly frustrating. Towards the end of the semester we get to study relational art, which I love. It’s art that studies how people interact with each other, so I’m just waiting to get through all of the icky digital stuff.

After the first week of class, I’m feeling okay about all of my classes I’m enrolled in. I am a little worried, however, about my desire to reject any sort of digital art because I’m in a digital art class, and digital media is one of my minors. Hmph. Oh well. If any of my classes prove to be rough, all of my professors seem good, and I have friends in all of my classes, so something good will come of it.

Have a great weekend and thanks for reading :)

Vlog: What I Learned in College

I did a vlog discussing what I learned during my first year of college. The most valuable lesson comes at 3:40, so you should probably watch the whole thing.

Finals

Happy Thursday everyone! I do apologize for my lack of creativity in these blog posts lately. Just like everyone else on campus, I have been incredibly busy with finals shtuff. Wrapping up loose ends for the end of the year/studying for finals has been consuming my life, but it will all be over soon enough!

Since I am an art + design major, a lot of my work for finals was due last week at Art Now. Although I had a lot due then, the fun didn’t stop there! I have to write a manifesto for my art history class, which is proving to be incredibly challenging, as well as make a visual for it. I also have to create an artist website, complete with a bio, artist statement, and resume for another one of my art classes. So much art, so little time.

The final for my FYS was simple enough. We just had to answer some short essay questions. The only test final I have is for my urban ecology class, and let me tell you, I cannot wait for that to be over. I am not a sciencey person in the slightest, so I am anxiously awaiting the day that science can be out of my life forever.

The awkward, "finals are over!!" celebration dance.

My journalism class’ final was a paper, which I turned in last week, so I just need to finish up my art and urban ecology stuff and I will be free!

Have a great end to the week, thanks for reading, and keep rockin’ those finals :)
