I'm preparing for my final final. An event I've been procrastinating for about 9 years now.
Horray! 3 more courses and I'm a Junior.
At the moment I'm going for a BA in General Business. I chose General studies so I could take the classes I wanted from the business school, besides, I don't like Accounting, Finance, or Management enough to concentrate in one area only. Maybe it's a bad idea. I dunno.
I've registered for 3 classes this semester at The University of Houston Downtown. My schedule is as follows:
Business and Prof Speech Comm. ( COMM 3306 ) 3.0 hrs
Intro to Solar System ( PHYS 1301 ) 3.0 hrs
Business Cornerstone ( BA 21413 ) 3.0 hrs
I'm excited, but at the same time I hope and pray I'm sustaned through all of this. Last summer I tried taking 2 classes and I killed me. Of course, both classes were math and math is NOT a strong field of study for me.
The COMM and PHYS classes are still part of my general core classes. The Business Cornerstone is in the Business core however. I still need 2 more math classes, a Lit class before I can take any more classes in the Business core.
It will be interesting to see just how tired I get at work on Wednesdays and Fridays as I have class on Tuesdays and Thursdays till 9:45pm. Some times I think I'm crazy, but I'm more crazy for putting this off for so long. I'm 26 years old and still not quite a Junior. I may have enough credits to be classified as one, however, I still have some general core classes to get out of the way.
Hopefully I'll be graduated by 2007 if I take 3 to 4 classes a semester. Doesn't that sound like a loooooong time? Yeah, maybe becuase it is!
I gotta give props to those brainy people at MIT. Their Open CourseWare initiative is incredible, basically, the profs are posting their lectures, course notes, syllabi, and other coure material to the web for free. Yes, it's been around for a while, a friend of mine clued me into this over a year ago, but I just finished reading an article on it and decided to check it out. I'm deffinatly going to give this course a look over before I start my Calculus with Applications class at UHD.
By 2007 they should have the course ware for all of their courses online. Hopefully by then we might see some in-depth classes on perl come out of this. I'd love to see what those lucky/brainy/rich kids are learning about there.
The internet is great! You can get a feel for the intelligentsia of MIT without having to lift more than a finger.
