I registered for classes yesterday. I was not disappointed in the frustration quotient.
I guess it wasn't all that bad. I thought the fact that I failed a course last semester would fuck me up, but it didn't. I got all the studio classes I wanted, which is the important thing. I couldn't get the academic classes I wanted because of time conflicts with my studio classes.
I am most chagrined and pissed at the fact that I once again have 8:30 classes four times a week, like I did this semester. Goddammit. Bethany is not a morning person. But the advantage of this (and the only thing that redeems it) is that I am done at 11 o'clock on Fridays. My one late day (Wednesday), I don't have class until 5:30. Now I wish I could spread it out a bit.
Anyway, here's the deal.
Off Loom Fiber Structure (8:30-11 am, Thursday and Friday) - I am so excited about this, because I am developing a real affinity for fabric in all of my projects. Like it says, this class basically just covers fibers without using a loom. I am not *too* interested in looms (although I have never used one at length, so who's to say), although I probably have it in my blood or something cause my Mom did all these great loom weavings in college. I am really looking forward to this.
Beginning Ceramics (7:30-10 pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays) - It'll be good to get back into this, although it's probably the one I'm least excited about, just because it's known territory. I'm also worried about being bored in the Beginning class. Hm.
Jewelry (8:30-11 am, Monday and Tuesday) - I'm also excited about this one. I really wanted to take Plastics, but I was informed that this course is a prerequisite for it. Poop. Oh well, it's not like they're going to be torturing me with bronze casting and whatnot. :)
European Crafts and Design (Monday and Tuesday, 12:40-2 pm) - My art history course. Daniella suggested I take this course because it centered more around ceramics and fibers and other craft areas, whereas the regular art history course would be all about painting.
Environmental Science (Wednesday 5:30-8:10 pm) - This was the only science I could take that would fit in my schedule as it was. Goddammit
I'm also considering taking some classes at community college this summer to get stupid academic courses out of my way. Ugh.
So yeah, next semester I'll be cheery morning person Bethany, like I am now. Ha.
