School starts up again for me today. It is the first quarter of my new major (Culture, Literature, and the Arts) and is filled with classes that I hope will be fun for me. Today, for example, I have Video Art followed by Creative Writing: Poetry. I’m looking forward to it.
It’s also a scary quarter, because I’m signed up for 25 credits. If you aren’t familiar, a normal full load in a quarter system is 15 credits. It’s possible that I’m crazy to take so many classes, but I want to stay on track for graduation at the end of the summer, and there happened to be tons of classes I wanted to take this quarter.
Part of what I’m trying to do is learn the discipline to manage the work. I’m not working, so the course load shouldn’t be too much if I manage it properly. Of course, I also have to acknowledge that my ADD is a hurdle and establish coping techniques appropriately.
Fun, challenging times ahead.
