Good morning, everyone!
Hope you're doing well. I am an in the midst of the busiest time of the semester and I sort of feel like I'm losing a mind. I simply have a lot of on my plate and I've been running around like a crazy person.
On the bright side, Friday is my 21st Birthday!
Now that I have vented to you, let me tell you about my schedule for my final semester at St. Mike's. (Yes, that statement is absolutely terrifying.) As you are most likely aware, I have to schedule my classes around ski team commitments in the spring semester. It is also true that in my final semester I have to take certain classes which doesn't allow me as much flexibility as I'd like.
That being said, here is my schedule:
MJD-460-A (2794) Senior Seminar: Book- Wednesday 03:15PM - 06:25PM
Official Description: This is the capstone course. It's an opportunity to develop, research, and produce a professional-quality media project (a documentary film, book, or web documentary) which explores a socially significant topic through a variety of interdisciplinary angles.
Bottom Line: I'm writing a book and I'm excited and freaking out at the same time.
MJD-219-A (3439) Social Media Theory & Practice - Monday, Wednesday, Friday 11:00AM - 12:05PM
Official Description: Not Available
Bottom Line: A class on social media? I'm obviously taking it.
DA-102-A (2634) Ballet I - Tuesday, Thursday 03:00PM - 04:35PM
Official Description: This class is an introduction to the basic movement vocabulary of classical ballet. The class consists of floorwork, barre work and center floor with an emphasis on alignment and placement.This class is for students with no previous ballet experience or those who want to review the basics. Students will improve their flexibility, strength, balance and coordination while developing an appreciation for ballet as an expressive art.
Bottom Line: My friends are taking this course, which will be hysterical. We have a performance in the Spring, which will be funnier.
BU-205-A (3124) Business Communication - Tuesday, Thursday 01:15PM - 02:50PM
Official Description: This course enhance students' understanding of communication theory and capability in multiple communication channels and situations. Also develops critical thinking skills and ethical integrity in discerning credible information and responding appropriately.
Bottom Line: Communications is my niche and I've never taken a business class before. I figure it can't hurt me!
This will be the first semester that I can't ski every day. I know I lead a very rough life. :-P I will spending Wednesday afternoons in senior sem instead of on the ski slopes. I'll also be missing a couple sessions of Social Media Practice and Theory for races.
All-in-all I'm really happy with my schedule. I'm taking good courses that leave me time to work on my book and enjoy my final semester.
