was awesome 🙂 Woke up early but slept in for a little longer. Talked to the Dean about waivering the writing requirement, didnt quite succeed, but it was nevertheless helpful. Then went to classes: they were AMAZING!! Well, classical studies was kinda amusing, it was so abviously an easy A class filled with sorority girls XD. Renaissance history class, on the other hand, was phenomenal. I loved every minute of it, and I feel like I already learned quite a bit from the first class! Both professors seemed really nice, too 🙂 It’s unfortunate that I don’t think I’ll be able to take both 😦 Hopefully I will get the writing credits for both semesters of research independent studies, and then I’ll just frop classical studies. Although the history course technically has the W code, but somehow the professor said it didn’t when I asked, quite definitively too. Maybe there’s a mistake, I kind of hope the registrar will just stick with it, and I get a W out of it *crosses my fingers*.
The ForeverDuke party was pretty nice. Thank God it wasn’t just burgers, and I actually had enough food to fill me up 😀 plus the awesome beer stein and free calendars (even though they are 2009, and there’s like 4 months left O_O). It was also nice running into familiar faces, mostly seniors. Man, I still can’t believe I’m among the oldest on campus. Feels so…strange and surreal. Although I totally emphathize the the previous seniors and their sentiments of not wanting to leave. Every corner of the campus seems especially precious now, the feelings provide such a sharp contrast to my feelings of blase during sophomroe year. I still remember thinking how tiresome the campus had become and the only thing that really mattered to me was how to salvage my pathetic GPA. This year is going to go by faster than any others, because it’s the last, because I’ll be unbelievably busy, and because I don’t really want it to end.
Tomorrow is golf and econ, maybe chinese too. Hopefully I get a ride to the Washington Duke Inn >.<
