I suppose it doesn't help that Day 2 (Tuesday and Thursday classes) have two classes that are on my least favourite list. Okay, Philosophy probably won't be too bad. But I think the Psychology of Education class, which I was excited for, is going to have a lot of work. I also have had all the teachers in my other courses before, but not the woman who teaches the Psych class, so I'm not comfortable with her. Yet. We'll see.
Wednesday. First class of the day, Science. You know the science that I took last semester that was so incredibly boring? Yeah, that science. This is a continuation class. All the people from the people dropped out to leave six students including me. And on Friday, I found out that two more people dropped out. Supposedly the class is still going to go on. I'm glad because I need the class for my science minor, but also not glad because I detest that class and it being at 8:30 in the morning makes me want to tear my hair out. Everyone else arrives just on time or late and the teacher is always late, so I freaked out on the first day that I was in the wrong classroom. I pretended that I needed a drink of water and went to the water fountain to have an excuse to go back to the room and get to check the room number. Since it was the first day of me having to get up at 6 in the morning and I was so not used to that, I was exhausted. Bored. My parents bought me these special teas for Christmas and I used a bag of black currant tea to have in science class. My eyes were drooping and I wanted that class to be over from the moment it started. So I decided I needed caffeine and had a sip of my currant tea. It was so good I almost cried.

Second class was an Alice Munro course that I'm taking with a professor from last semester with my Early Canadian Literature course. He is so enthusiastic and I love him. When I have only science and this class on Mondays and Fridays, the only reason I'm getting up in the morning is for him and his class. After that class, I had a few hours break between that and Victorian Lit, which I have with my two good friends, E. and G. I had my break with G. and she showed me the first episode on Netflix from North and South. I think I've fallen in love with this show and I can't wait to have an opportunity to watch more! One-third of me while watching it is thinking PERIOD DRRRRRRAMA, one-third is thinking RICHARD ARMITAGE, and the last third is thinking BATES IS IN THIS I LOVE THE CRINKLES BY HIS EYES.
I wish I could tell you how lonely I am. How cold and harsh it is here. Everywhere there is conflict and unkindness. I think God has forsaken this place. I believe I have seen hell and it's white, it's snow-white.
(don't pay attention to the scenes after the cotton mill...
I haven't seen them yet and I honestly think this
scene should not be juxtaposed with them)
Thursday, not much to say. We were let out of Psych halfway through because the projector didn't work. I felt super lonely in Philosophy because I knew no one but the teacher and I was sitting in the middle of a row by myself, but then I realized after class that I have a friend who sat a row behind me because she didn't realize I was in the class, either.
So coming into the weekend, I feel pretty good. Besides the fact that I already have a ton of reading to do and I have to decide what I'm going to write about for three papers pretty quick.
And so all that's left to talk about is my life in status updates and Pinterest, I guess. :)
Reading: Alice Munro, "Walking on Water" ... I actually don't mind this story. I think I'm going to do my journal entry for Monday on this one. YUSSS I DON'T HAVE TO WRITE ON SOME STORY WITH A ROMANTIC PLOT.
