Nope. Not a Balrog of Morgoth. Though that would probably be just as effective.
It’s almost Registration time for next semester. I spent all day today working on a class schedule. It’s been interesting. I’m sad because the way it is working out, I won’t be able to take Shakespeare’s Plays for my British literature requirements. However, I think I’m going to be able to fit Ballet in again. So hallelujah for that. =)
The most frightening part, though? The walking I’m going to have to do…or shall I say, the full-out-sprinting?
I’m hopefully going to be taking Dance Production II and Modern II. These classes are back-to-back. Modern is in the Dow, on the far south-east corner of campus. Already far away from like everything, as it is. But Dance Production is in the Knickerbocker Theater. The Knick is not on campus – it’s a street over from the north edge. And it’s a lot more west-er than the Dow. According to Google Maps, the two buildings are a full half-mile apart. Also according to Google Maps, it will take a full ten minutes to walk between the two. And I’ll be lugging my dance bag for Modern, and whatever books and things are required for Dance Production. And it will also most likely be blizzarding. *muzzle of pistol to temple*
We get ten minutes from when one class ends until the next starts, to get to where we need to be. Meaning, ten minutes starting the minute the professor says, “ok, have a nice day.” Meaning, if it’s a dance class, ten minutes to put your street clothes back on, gather up all your belongings and your dance bag, get out of the building along with the crowd of everyone else moving the same direction much slower than you want to be, make your way across campus to the next building, and get in the door of your classroom.
Dance Production comes first, and I’ve never had the woman who teaches it before, so I don’t know how good she is about ending on time. But Angie, who will be teaching Modern II, always starts right on schedule and isn’t that happy if you’re late. If you’re late twice, it counts as one absence. and you only get two absences before you automatically fail the class. Um. Yea. …At least Angie is second, though. She’s not always the best about letting class out on time. =P
I’m going to have to go out sometime and walk the distance and time myself to see if it’s even possible…I really don’t know about this. =P Gosh…*facepalm* yea, assuming I get in to both those classes (which I should), this next semester is going to be agonizing.
I think it’s going to be The Semester of Sprinting Across Campus Like a Mad Woman.
I need a bike. …I really, really, really need a bike…
or an electric scooter. :D
…shoot guys, I’m the most un-athletic person I know, when it comes to running. I’m so gonna die…
