So I dropped another class today, Religion. It means no more unfinished readings and no more complete confusion. It also means I still have to fight my way through another six credit hours of humanities at some point in the very new future. In the last two years, I’ve dropped three humanities classes–Religion and Pop Culture, Linguistics and now this one. Add to that my other chronic course dropping habits including Psych Skills in Sport and Life, Anatomy, Intro to International Development studies [in first year], Scientific Principles of Fitness and Conditioning [which I’m now in next term], Developmental Psychology, Introduction to Disability Studies and Introduction to Sociology, and you’ve got a pretty wide range of dropped courses.
I know my study habits leave something to be desired, but I really am trying to keep up this year and it’s just getting more difficult with increasing readings. I have issues with procrastination, and I’m the first to admit it. I have a master syllabus of all my requirements for each course I’m in that I look at frequently, important things are in my Google calendar which syncs across the board, and all my notes are always with me in Evernote. And like Religion, some things just don’t work.
I was really excited for the second term of Religion, but considering I knew literally five points on the review, and was up until 1 am writing a paper and then launched into crazy Wednesday — work, a meeting with my Issues in Sport prof, Issues in Sport, lunch, practicum, Promotion and Adherence, attempt at religion studying and dinner, and then Physical Activity and Aging until 8:30 [or 8:10 today].
I would show you my awesome scorekeeping drawings from practicum today, except for I have no idea where my phone cable is and the e-mails of the pictures apparently aren’t coming through. They were awesome, though, and the seniors thoroughly enjoyed them and kept telling me things to add.
The coolest thing today was that I had an impromptu tweetup with Donald after Physical Activity and Aging. We found out via Twitter he was just a building over from me at school and he came by after the presentation he was at — how cool is that?
Tomorrow: work, no class, and probably a flu shot. So a) I don’t get really ridiculous sick and b) my doctors don’t yell at me.
