This is kind of two posts in one, but we will all live.
This week was surely one to remember. I had four days of classes (Monday was Labor Day) so I was exposed to all of my courses. So far so good. My professors seem decent and my classmates are not too shabby either. The workload is also steadily increasing. In my design drawing class, we had to draw 6×6 squares, with lines going across them every 1/8th of an inch. In some squares, the line weight would change, in others we would have to gradate and hope to God that would establish the perception of depth. All I think are lines. Let’s see…I’ve done 25 boxes so far. Each box has 48 6 inch lines, 48×25=1200 lines. FUN! It gets annoying after a while but I understand why we are doing it, so I am more willing to accept it. I am enticed by the idea that one day, even if it is years away, I will be using lines to draw buildings not to please professors…LOL We actually got our first model building assignment today, and yes, it has to do with lines. I think I will be able to put pics up of those around Wednesday, line pictures should be up by Sunday. Explanations about the model will also be put up on the blog.
Today I switched my math class from math 205 to math 280. Basically, math 205 was a joke. It was sophomore level (high school, that is) math. It was pathetic IMO. So I asked to be transferred to something a bit more challenging. Given my SAT scores and previous courses that I took, they decided that I would be moved to Calc I. I am not going to lie, I’m kind of scared/nervous. We’ll see how it all pans out.
