I regard college English with an acute loathing. So naturally I decided to take back-to-back English courses this summer. Once through, I'll be pretty much done with college English. "My Summer of Hell" I called it.
But here's the thing about hell: it sounds endurable from the outside, but once within, everything screams to get out as soon as possible.
So that's what I'm doing. The summer is divided up into two sessions, A and B. I'm currently in the middle of Session A, taking English 102, a course that I have to get under my belt as soon as possible. I had registered for English 301 over Session B, but the course isn't necessary for at least another two semesters. So I dropped it. I'll be taking Social Statistics instead, which I'm very pleased about since I <3 maths.
I guess what I'm learning in this is that it's not good to expect myself to power through stressful periods in hopes of having less stress later on. Some things I can sprint through. Some things I can't. In the case of college course I hate, I think it's wiser to intersperse the terrible course with the great. The sweet makes the bitter less so.
