I’m taking two classes this summer – one in the Mini-term (Criminal Justice 433) & one in the first term. It was either go with the summer classes (which I’ve never done) & be done in about 7 weeks, or wait & take 2 classes in the Fall semester (August – December 2006) After discussing it with the fam & doing some searching of the dark recesses of my soul, I opted for the 7 weeks, knowing that packing a semester into 7 weeks is demanding. Boy howdy.
I switched my graduation date from December 2006 to 1 August, got my final two courses approved by the appropriate red-tape cutter, & dove in w/o a break from the Spring semester.
So, here I sit with my head spinning… Feel like I’m on the machine… Not to 50! There’s 4 days more of class #1, TYVM (thank you very much,) knowing far more than I ever wanted to about prisons & just how inaccurately they are depicted in movies, TV, THE media, etc. Why Criminal Justice? Needed an upper division elective from a non-Liberal Arts/Sciences College that would be offered during the mini-term…
First term I’ll be in a 4 credit Geology w/lab class – Its also a required course that I should have taken in 1987. Sue me. I hope to become something of a rock-hound. A rock-hound that stays inside most of the time & looks at rocks virtually. Cool.
Trying to continue with some semblance of life at the same time. Did it to myself… Drop dead date: 7/14.
