That's awesome! My college just has a costume contest every year, and hardly anybody participates in it. We do have an art exhibit about Dia de Los Muertos, though.  :D

There's a costume party at my school, too. I'm going as the same thing I've worn as a Halloween costume for the last ten years running...a vampire.

Tests galore next week: History on Monday, Philosophy on Wednesday, Chemistry on Thursday, and Biology on Friday. :?

To say I'm screwed is an understatement... :(

You're telling me...

I'm not that worried about History or Philosophy, but Bio & Chem are over some hard sh*t.

I'm actually not worried about ANY of my classes at this point.  I'm getting caught up in Writing 105 and I'm doing great in everthing else. :B

I'm the same way. There's some moderately difficult material in my science classes, but if I study for a bit, I usually get the jist of it. Plus, we're dealing with the Spanish Inquisition in History, a subject I thoroughly enjoy...

















because NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ONE EXPECTS THE SPANISH INQUIZITION!!!!!!!! :lol:

I don't believe you after reading The Rediscovery. :P The last one was on time, and I've already gotten some assignments for my other classes out of the way so I get more time to work on this last paper. (The topic, incidentally, is "cyberabuse"? trolling, flaming and all that lawvely stuff.)

Hell, I might. :P I'd probably focus more on an online ex-couple I know and how he was constantly bullying her, which led to her breaking up with him (after three years.  She had the patience of a saint and really wanted it to work).  My argument's gonna be that online conflicts are just like in real life, with the only difference being you can actually prevent a person from ever talking to you again.

That's sad. People should learn that cyber-bullying is just as bad as regular bullying.

If you can't say it to someone's face without getting a black eye or making them cry, don't say it at all.

So, for the most of us that are in college, it is coming to an end for the first half of their freshman year or sophomore year and I'm hoping we could personally summarize how our individual experiences have been so far.

I'll go first:

I have to say coming back to school is a refreshment from taking a long year break. I really prefer to commute and live at home and it's been going great so far. I have been getting problems of getting assignments at the very last minute and barely getting any sleep, only about one or two hours. I usually get decent to good grades on those assignments.

With the recent fears of the Bay Bridge being fixed leading to other things, BART ridership has been increasing and people have been farting on my face.

MUNI sucks. It just sucks. I can feel what's it's like Ed. The buses are usually crowded, but that's not my issue. It's the bus drivers. Rude drivers that shout and that breaks my spirit for the morning ride. It really doesn't matter why, whether it was to get the people squeezed together so that the bus driver doesn't shout again, it felt mean spirited to me.

I have to say that SF State is potentially a great state school, but with all of the budget cuts and furloughs. I felt like it had it before the mess. It's a good time to be in college so that we can amass as much knowledge to our desires to become working professionals in our field of study.

For my classes, I'm really engaged in my Ethnic Studies-Critical Thinking. So far, the professor has been getting into discussions about past court cases that have affected us.

Sorry, but I'm caught in a bad romance. Could you pick up the telephone and just dance? The paparazzi are here to video phone us. -Toltendo

Our last day of full classes was Friday. Next week is finals week, with Monday being a "reading day" for studying.

My first half of my sophomore year has been pretty good. Living in the dorms has been, for the most part, a pleasant experience. The people here are quite friendly and good-natured, and it's cool to have my own freedom from my family for the time being.

Classes have been a little hectic, but I like them for the most part, and have become quite enthralled with my Philosophy and Public Speaking classes.
