2. Waiting around for enrollment to start so the nervous breakdown you're having is at least somewhat justified.
I just realized that 387 (Kiddie Lit) and 399 (the super-easy books-adapted-to-film class with no papers) conflict. For an hour. On both days they're scheduled. BUGGER. Now a choice. A really interesting but really, really, really writing-intensive class about children's literature, or a fairly interesting but virtually research-free class that is all reading and discussion but gets me four credits, regardless? Last semester in January. Thoughts? o.O
Have to register for five classes, although only taking three. This is because: a) I think that if it comes down to it and both are open I will register for both 387 and 399, go to one class each, and pick between them that way and b) I won't hear back about creative writing 'til the 24th (not that I'm worried, but if the weird happens and I don't get in, I need a third class, still, to qualify for full-time) and c) I wanted an easy non-thinky class like Mythology in Context which rambles about what it sounds like it rambles about but doesn't hold much truck with academic research. No offense to humanities majors, for that or this: the Humanities department limits registration in all upper-division HUM classes until the four-week reg period is over. That's until December. The hell? Like anybody taking an upper-division Humanities class is going to wait that long. Like there's so much competition. (There might be. Nevertheless, it annoys me. Because that means that second-year HUM students, who haven't declared a major, are getting the same shot as third and fourth-years, who actually *need* the damn classes. Not that I do. But I'm lazy and I don't want my laziness to lead to boredom.)
Anyway. So I will register for the creative writing class, and the film class, and the kiddie lit class, *and* something else which I haven't figured out yet, and wait for humanities to open out, then panic and cry when the four weeks is up and I have neither CRWR *or* a mythology class to call my own.
See? And you thought I was kidding about the nervous breakdown, didn't you? :P
EDIT: Got 399 and HUM 327, which is Issues in the Study of the Future, which reads Nineteen Eighty-Four and O Brave New World and similarly doomsaying fiction and talks about how we thought we'd all have jetpacks by now. I'm confused that it let me enroll. The site told me they had a hold on the upper-division classes. *puzzled*
OMG Degrassi is on Showcase. At noon. Huh?
Anyway. Still might switch out 399 for the kiddie lit. If it doesn't fill up. And things. Now I can switch my freaking-out to the construction of my portfolio-thing. Thing. Er.
