unij: YOU BET KID (school is hard)
Oh man this class I'm in. It's only week one, and things haven't really hit the fan yet, but it looks like things are going to be pretty intensive. Or, rather, pretty intensive for a more artsy class at this school. I won't compare myself to the science majors.

There's a lot of reading every week, which on its own isn't all THAT bad, but it can get exhausting having to read seventy-five pages of dense language on a computer screen is hard to pull off, then followed by a hundred+ more pages for the OTHER readings we have to do. But really, that's not all that bad.

The seminar passes are cranked up, though--there's the standard "what are they about, what's the theme, what did you learn" thing we have to write, which is relatively simple. But suddenly now we also are required to pick something from the readings and do research on that--including at least one print source. Jeez, I have to actually get up and go to the library! This is nuts, man!

And we basically have to do a writeup for everything we do in class. How did you become closer to your goals in the workshop this week? How did your time working with other students go?

Honestly, it's just a lot of things that, while maybe not so bad on their own, build up fast. I'm still hoping to have fun, but man this is not the kind of writing I want to do.
