I have learned a lot this semester. One is how to be more descriptive in poems. The most important thing is to turn my phone off during Dr. Moore’s class. In his class, if you phone goes off you either dance to the ringtone or bring in cookies. I haven’t had this happen yet, but a few classmates have.
Part of me feels like this semester just began, but then there is a (big) part of me that thinks it has been dragging on and I just want it to end! I can see the finish line, and I feel so close. I just picked out my classes for next semester, and met with my advisor on Monday…now I just have to wait til my time slot next week to register! I am so excited, I think I will like my classes next semester. Don’t get me wrong, I do like (most of) my classes this semester, but after awhile I just get worn down from them and want some change.
My favorite class this semester was Dr. Moore’s Honors Comp 1. He always had us sit in a U around his chair and we would discuss the reading from the night before, and his papers are very flexible and you can be really creative with them. It’s a lot of fun because I have really gotten to know the other 9 students in the class 1) through class discussions and 2) through reading their papers. It is a really laid-back, fun class to be in.
The class this semester that I have had to work the hardest in is positively Discrete Mathematics. It’s completely different from any other math I have ever taken. Hardly any numbers in it. It is basically all proofs and symbols. It’s been tough for me, but I am trying my best and have to take it if I ever want to become a high school math teacher.
I also have really liked my Psych of the Exceptional Child class a lot more than I thought I would. All the information is very interesting and I think will be very valuable in my future as an educator.
Next semester I will be taking: Honors Comp 2, Art Appreciation, Statistics, Calculus 1, and Developmental Psych. –> I am looking forward to each one for a different reason and hope my second semester of college goes as well as the first (but hopefully even better!)
