Happy Friday all! Today marks the end of the first week of classes in the new semester. HUZZAH! My first week back at school was a little stressful, but once I get back into school mode, I will be good to go. I am excited about most of my classes this semester, which is promising.
I am taking the second half of my FYS, or First Year Seminar. All freshmen have to take this class as a sort of transition into being able to read and write at a collegiate level. My class is called Rock & Roll High School and I absolutely love it! I had this class last semester, so I already knew the professor and kids in my class, which is nice. The class is about youth culture and the influences it has in literature and music, so it is a blast!
I’m taking a class called Revolution, which is kind of an art history course, but we also have projects mixed in. I am really excited for it because I honestly don’t know that much about art history, and I would love to learn more.
Another art class I’m taking is called Process. All art majors and minors have to take it, and you essentially make one project throughout the whole semester. We are encouraged to use unconventional materials, or explore with a medium we haven’t used before. I’m not sure what I’m going to do yet, but I have been collecting old lists, clothing tags, and random stuff I find on the ground, so hopefully I can incorporate that somehow.
I just declared a journalism minor, so I am taking my first journalism class about news writing in print. I love reading and writing, so I am anxious to see if I enjoy journalism as much as I think I will. I’m excited to see how this class turns out because I have never done anything like this before.
Unfortunately I must take a science class as well. At Butler we have the Core Curriculum, which is a set of classes that everyone must take in order to graduate. There is a natural world (science) credit that has to be fulfilled, so I am taking Urban Ecology to do that.
The class doesn’t seem too sciency, but I loathe any type of science, so I am not particularly pumped for it.
Those are all the classes I am taking this semester, so hopefully I will learn a lot and enjoy all of my classes. Have a fabulous three day weekend, and thanks for reading
