Semester Outlook

Well, this seems to be the thing to do at the beginning of the semester…. I’m in my 3rd year, but because of the credits I completed last semester, I technically am considered a Senior. I have 12 credits left after this semester.

3D Design II: This is the second class of my 3D modeling and animation course from last semester. I’m really going to like it, since I really liked the first one, and we’re just learning more about the program and stuff. Advantage: I will have more projects to post because of this class.

Microeconomics: I was going to take History, but I had to buy 4 books for that, which meant too much reading. So I decided to take this class instead. As it turns out, the professor made a deal with a company and we got our book absolutely free! I don’t know anything about economics, so I’ll hopefully be learning a lot. Which also might mean a lot of work. Advantage: David sits next to me.

Physics: This class should be OK. I think I’ll like it a lot more than I like Biology. I like the math aspect of it. So, that’s cool. I’ll probably need Miles’s calculator. I forgot to ask him though. Advantage: My teacher is Polish.

Painting: This class is expensive, with the supplies alone. Well over $100. But I haven’t ever painted before, so it could be disaster or I could be pleasantly surprised. Who can tell? Advantage: David is in it, so no matter what, I won’t be the worst painter in class. ZING!

Digital Editing: I must withdraw from Painting. Since I am graduating in Dec 07, I made arrangements for an independent study of Digital Editing. (It normally is only offered in the spring). However, circumstances have changed, and so my professor asked me to take it this semester. It conflicts with Painting. I’ll be taking Painting in the fall. Advantage: One less class with David. Zing!

Graphic Effects II: This is the second class of the one I did last semester. We do a lot of interactive design on DVDs and the like. We will be constructing an electronic portfolio in this class as well. Advantage: This class works at a nice pace and so I don’t feel over-stressed.

Information Architecture: This class is online. She’s teaching it at the same time as a face to face class…so it probably means more work than most onlines classes have meant for me in the past. However, it doesn’t seem to be hard things. Mostly analyzing websites and discussing how their navigation and design could be improved. Not the funnest class, but it’s required. Advantage: It’s online.

Nineteen credits. Not too bad. But I’ll probably be busy. I also got a job. So…we’ll see if I ever post this semester. ;)
