Doing great already.  My roommate, Masanori, is pretty nice.  Made some friends with the guys at the end of the hall, Ben and Nils.  Cool part is that Ben plays guitar and Nils plays bass, so if we can find a drummer, I'm good enough as a vocalist and we all work well together, we got a band idea going... and classes haven't even started yet.


Vocalists FTW! :D

I don't have quite as much of a musical wing in the dorms. So, no band for me.... Still, I've been making a few friends. And the teachers I've met so far aren't that bad, to be honest. I've had worse in high school, actually. lol

Classes start at 11AM for me today. Lucky me! Then it's the weekend again! Yay!

Oh yeah, I forgot about textbooks. The Consumerist has an interesting article about shopping for textbooks. I recommend that you read some of the comments, as I see that they seem more significant to understand.

@TBF: Don't get me wrong, it's not a musical wing.  But one thing that gets me is how many international students are just on floor 7 of Day Hall.  Offhand I can think of two Japanese (Masanori and a woman named Yoko), a Filipino (Antoinette "Toni"), a Swede (Nils), a Brit (Stephan), a Ukrainian (Oleksandra "Oli"), at least three Chinese and at least one Korean.  That's much more than I expected.

Wow, that's a lot of exchange students. Or immigrants. :shock:

I've got a couple of Japanese brothers and a British junior in my wing, but that's about it. lol

I guess the payoff for finishing Engineering is a better future in a good career. Hopefully, I'll try to finish my required G.E. and maybe go into Engineering as well. I'm sure many 1st year ENGR. students will be switching majors somewhere in Business or anything with a B.A., but I don't blame them because it does require a lot of work.

If you're actually required to take those classes this quarter, I hope you don't snap. That's what happened to my cousin when he majored in BioEngineering at UC Davis. He told me his experience that he went berserk one day in his dorm room and felt like jumping out of the window of his room, which makes sense to why a significant number of college students commit suicide. Even his sister snapped once at him and kicked his ass. It was that she couldn't finish all of her work, so her brother said he would do her paper that was due in a couple of days.

So... I'm not the only one that thinks college classes are a lot easier than high school, am I? ^^; I mean, I'm still working on learning to budget my time, but the classes are (with the exception of the math class I can't drop without becoming a part-time student) very easy.  Of course, it could have to do with the classes I took in high school, but still.

Same here. Maybe it's the six or even seven classes we had in high school.

I find my courses about the same difficulty as I experienced in my high school courses, which is probably somewhere very near the middle. So I'm coping fairly well so far. :)
