I ended up not doing bad on the few assignments I was worried about this week. I got a B- on my Traditional China midterm that I didn't study for so I'm very pleased - comments were that my writing was well done, just could have been elaborated more, which is what I expected. Also got a 75 (which equates to a B-, don't know exactly how, but hey not complaining LOL) on that insane Human Sexuality test, which was the class average. And Jonas got the same grade as me, so he's not dropping the class, yay ^^! I was also worried about my latest story for Journalism - but she gave us a chance to revise, so I looked over it with my professor after class, and she said I just had to tweak little things but it was well-done overall. I also have submitted a longer, tweaked version of this story (on the debates/presidential election) to be in The Independent this week (the school newspaper), at the request of the editor =).
So I've decided to withdraw from my Art History class. I feel kinda bad, because the professor is really nice and I do find the material interesting - but the class isn't doing anything for me, and I'm not getting as good grades as I should in two of my other classes. It'll give me more time to focus on Journalism/Traditional China, and deal with everything else I've got going on this semester. I've decided to not apply for the VA minor anymore, and there are other classes that could count for the Asian Studies minor when I apply to it.
I've also started planning my schedule for next semester - it's great and sucks at the same time. Obviously, Photojournalism is a must - that's 2:30-6:10 on Wednesday (I haaaaaate that length class with a passion thanks to Art History, but this is actually something I like ^^). I'm required to take Junior Seminar in Journalism, so that's a 2:30-6:10 on Thursday - thanks to that, I'm forced to have an 8:30 class >_<. I have to take Journalism I and II in sequence, and one of the two sections for JII is during the same time as Junior Seminar (fail). I also plan on taking Modern Chinese history from 12:30-2:10 Mon & Thurs - to get more upper-level credits and a class for the minor. So this totals to 16 credits, and I'll have Tuesday/Friday off - that's the good thing!
In random news - OMG WATCH 'THE APPLE'. Epikly awesome movie XD. The sparkles! The color! The crazy awesome choreography!
