This should be easy...

Well, I finished my classes for the day. This should be easy. Statistics has the same instructor I had twice in math classes and I know he's good. As for German, I did not actually learn a single word of German today. All the instructor did was have us fill out a sort of getting-to-know-you form. So yeah, there's not much to tell. I didn't expect much on the first day anyway.

Statistics sounds fun, but it also sounds like I already know a lot of the material because of all my science classes. Still, I think I'll be glad I took the actual class. I don't know what to anticipate with German because I've never taken a foreign language class before and I don't actually have any idea how hard it is. But the instructor claims we'll take it slowly and I'm pretty sure I'll be fine. I don't really know much because he closed class early today, not having everything printed that he needed to and all that (kind of typical first day chaos). Oh, I guess I wasn't expecting him to actually be German for some reason? And on that note, maybe I'm being harsh, but it seems like if he's teaching German to a bunch of English-speakers he should be really good with English, but he had poor pronunciation. Yeah, I think that's just me being harsh.

Well, I have some reading to do later today. Statistics reading anyway, as the German instructor didn't assign any reading yet, but I'll probably peruse both books a little. I'm going to wait until I get home for that, though. And oh man, LJ actually did manage to restore my draft. I was totally wrong. I guess it can save my draft on my new computer, but not my old one? Or maybe it's IE and it simply fails to save with Firefox. Or maybe they fixed the problem. I have no idea.

Anyway, I was going to add that this doesn't even really feel like school because I am not in a lab. Maybe it's because for my last nine quarters before this, I always had at least one laboratory science class and sometimes two. But you know what, I'm going to take it as a sign that yes, I really, really do want to do chemistry professionally and...okay, Windows Vista crashed again. I'm done. I hate Windows Vista. I might hate LJ slightly less now than before I found that it successfully saved and restored this entry twice, but whatever.
