Let's start with Mrs. Chili's questions:
- Yes, I'm IN school. I attend all of my classes in person, for 6 straight hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I'm lucky in that my first two classes are in the same classroom, so I can just sit there fore three hours and not have to look for parking. Yay?
- My Lit teacher is very vague as to what the assignments actually require. For instance, we have a 10-page "reading journal" due at the end of the semester. There's no hint as to what format this "journal" is supposed to take. There's also an oral report due at some undetermined date, but there's no information on it at all besides a length. And, from my experience with this professor, asking questions won't help. She will likely say something like "do it in an informative way." It almost seems like you can do ANYTHING and get an "A" but I feel like I should do the oral report this weekend, and see if it meets her requirements. Otherwise, I could do it right before it is due and then find out that it is wrong.
Beyond that... classes seem ok. I really approve of my Trig professor, because he posts the entire semester's homework list the first day of classes, and every lecture's notes are posted as PDF files online, so if you miss a day or two of class you don't have to fall behind. The pre-calculus instructor is a little strange, but he's got a knack for making complex ideas seem simple: I had him for Intermediate Algebra, and it took me a month or two to realize that he wasn't just talking down to the class. And my American History professor seems to be pretty excited about the whole thing, which is never a bad thing.
As for me... I'm not sure where I'm at. I hope I can get my head in the game quickly, but these months off have sort of ruined my motivation. Luckily for me, I only have to get motivated to go twice a week. If I had classes 4-5 days a week this might be a problem.
