April 12th 2005 What’s Michael Taking Next Semester?

Today was the big day—yep, that’s right, I registered for my Fall Semester 2005 classes. I got what I wanted, which worked out well. Some of you more knowledgeable readers may know that I am no longer planning on majoring in English, since I don’t want to spend the next three years analyzing poetry and writing papers that pretend I read too much into literature. Nope, now it’s BA Computer Science for me all the way! With that in mind, I present to you my courses for next fall:

  1. MATH 201 Calculus I: A math course required for my major. I haven’t taken math since my junior year of high school, so this should be quite an interesting experience. I’m pretty excited, though, because I do actually enjoy math—I just got lazy with it in high school. If nothing else, it gives me a great excuse to finally buy a TI-89.
  2. CSCI 203 Introduction to Computer Science I: The first of my required Comp Sci courses. I think I learn Java now, instead of C++, which isn’t the most useful computer language, but hey, I’m not going to complain. Should be a lot of fun. I have a lab component with this class.
  3. GRMN 101 Elementary German: Yay for German! Haven’t taken it since my senior year of high school, but I really want to become fluent in it.
  4. HIST 228 Imperial Russia: Always been interested in Russia, and this history course fit nicely in my schedule, so I thought I’d give it a shot.

Next semester is already looking good. As long as housing picks go well, I’m all set! Still, I’m anxious for this semester to end, but definitely hoping the summer break lasts a long, long time!
