This Is Going Too Fast

I can’t believe that I’m already in my second semester as a sophomore. It’s insane to think that at the end of this semester I will be registering for junior classes! This semester I’m starting to get even more into my major and I really like it! Here are the classes I am taking this semester and what I think about all of them so far!

SP 102: Spanish 102
T,W,Th,F 9-950
I have not decided yet if I like the shorter class time and 4 days a week or the longer class time 2 days a week like my Spanish 101 was. Either way I’m really excited to learn more Spanish because my plan is to go to Spain ASAP! I love traveling and so study abroad is something I want to do while at Butler. I really like my professor as well. She’s really helpful and understanding!

GHS 205: Global and Historical Studies – East Asian Interactions
T,Th 11- 1215
GHS is part of Butler’s Core which means this class is something everyone must take. East Asian Interactions is not the only topic you can take. There are many different topics, but I chose East Asian Interactions because I thought it would be interesting to learn more about my culture. Although this class is possibly becoming one my least favorite classes. I don’t really enjoy my professor’s way of teaching, so that sometime is a struggle. It is really interesting though!

AA 301: Arts Administration
T,Th 1-215
I’m taking this class as part of one my extra classes for my major. This classes deals mainly with how to manage a non profit organization. It is really interesting and will definitely help me later on if I decide to do PR for a non profit. This class is really creative and we do a lot of games that get us to think outside of the box.

STR 228: Promotional Writing
W 225-505
I only have this class once a week, which can be kind of intense sometimes. This class is also for my major and deals with writing for memos, releases, and a lot of knowing what to say in the proper way. I really like this class because I want to improve my writing, so I hope by the end of this class this will help with internships!

STR 251: Design and Production for STR
M, W 1-215
I really like this class! We learn how to use Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, and a lot of other Adobe products! It’s a lot of fun, but today we are sketching and I’m not sure how great that will turn out for me. My professor is really nice too and very helpful!

It’s insane to think about how many credits I already have and everything I am learning, but I’m so excited to be continuing on in my major and getting deeper into topics!

 

Let’s Be Honest

In reality my finals week is not that bad compared to others. A lot of pharmacy majors especially have finals one right after the other so that is way worse than mine! My problem is just I have a lot of busy work and no idea how to manage my time right now.

I only have two finals, but the rest of the things that I have due are time consuming! My first final is tomorrow in my world of plants class. I love the professor of this class, but this is possibly one of the hardest classes I have ever taken. I have never studied harder and still end up with terrible grades. Basically my goal on this final is to at least get a C, which sounds terrible, but at this point I am dying in this class.

On Thursday I have my portfolio due for Arts Administration. In this portfolio I have to compare my choice of an arts organization with another. So my choice was the Metropolitan of Art in New York City and now I have to compare it with the Indianapolis Museum of Art. It’s not very difficult at all because most of the information is online it’s just very time consuming, and I have to make it into a presentable binder.

Friday I have my Analytical Reasoning final, which is Butler’s way of calling a math class. My math class is Win, Lose, or Draw, which goes into statistics and probability. It sounds really easy, but it’s actually one of my hardest classes. I have a tutor for this so hopefully that helps!

Saturday I have my controversial story for my News Print Media class to turn in. I have yet to do any interviews for this or anything which is really bad, and on top of that I have to also rewrite a story for this class, because I failed my first time, so now this is just additional work. I expected this though because I had no idea how to write that story, so hopefully the rewrite goes well.

Currently I am sitting in the Science Library. Pretty much all of campus is dead with people only walking to go hide themselves in rooms in Jordan Hall, Irwin Library, or any other place where they can find a nook to study. I am also still soaked from the torrential downpour that mother nature decided to have. Broad Ripple flooded which is insane. On top of that my friend’s car is stuck there. I’ll keep you guys updated on whether she gets it back or not!

That's my friend's car. This was on tv!
