Spring Registration
January 21, 2014

Last Tuesday, I registered for a set of classes to take during the spring semester. I’m happy because I got into all of my classes at this point without the hassle of being on the waiting list and it’s supposed to be my last semester at this school! I signed up for Calculus for Business, Microeconomics, American State & Local Government, Java, and Assembly Programming. Though I might drop Assembly Programming because I was waitlisted in Microeconomics and still wanted a full-time student status. It’s a 7-hour gap in between and I wouldn’t want to wait or go home and come back on Mondays since it’s not a mandatory class. Unfortunately, my Java class is on a Saturday so I have to make some sacrifices there. I’m hoping that more people will join the waitlist so that the school opens up another class…. At a more convenient time. But regardless, the pro’s outweigh the con’s ☺.

My accounting class has been decent with its up’s and down’s. On the down side, the instructor is a bit vague through her lectures at times so we’re stuck trying to figure out where she gets her numbers from. I’m almost used to this and I’m already reading the book + taking notes on my own as it is. On the up side, this is a 5-week class and it’s flying by pretty well. I’m getting well-acquainted with others so that makes the class more bearable. Despite of my instructor’s teaching style, I appreciate her openness and some of the useful tips she gives about life. Her husband was directly involved in the process of making a handful of spacecrafts and that’s so cool! It helps open doors about the mysteries of the universe!!

A few days ago, my boyfriend and I celebrated our 1.5 years of being together by having some homemade vegetable miso udon soup. This was my first time making this dish in particular and it turned out to be delicious. With calculating the ingredients we consumed, the dish on its own costed ~$3.25 for the both of us to make at home (minus the optional add-ons like soy sauce, seaweed, drinks, and etc) compared to {$16 + tax + tip} outdoors. Hopefully I will have more opportunities to perfect this meal in the future :D.

    The home-made vegetable miso udon soup sounds delicious! I’d have tried it if I were there 😀

    And yay for getting into your classes without being waitlisted! Saturday classes are no fun, but trust me when I say Saturday+Sunday and working all week is even more of a hell. I did that one term, and just about nearly died from not being able to have any real day offs!

    Good luck with your spring classes! ^^

    The miso udon soup looks delicious! Congrats on your 1.5 years anniversary. 😉

    Good luck with your spring classes. It’s a good thing you got into your classes without being waiting! I never had school on saturday, I think it’d be weird for me XD

    You should definitely keep the Assembly language class, I learned a lot in there about memory consumption and how to write more efficient programs in other languages. If you are taking Java then Assembly should help since I know Java can be a memory hog.

    It’s good you didn’t get stuck on the waiting list. Although, class on a Saturday is definitely not my idea of fun T_T

    I hate when my lecturers were wishy-washy and then throw, “Oh, you’ll find everything online anyway” and it’s like, so why did I bother even showing up? Sigh, university.

    The food looks delicious! You and your boyfriend are too cute.

    PS. Maybe you’ve been flying off in your dreams hence the jetlag.

    Glad you got into all of your classes! I hope you’re managing to find time to relax with all this work you have.

    I like it when teachers talk about their own lives. It always makes a lesson more interesting and makes the atmosphere friendlier. Hopefully she’s not too vague though, that doesn’t sound good.

    Hope you’re doing well!

    Yay for 1.5 happy years! Let’s hope for many more years! That soup looks delicious.

    Assembly programming is intense. I’m literally afraid of it, and glad that I’ll probably never have to do it. In my school, the assembly programming classes are super intense and take a lot of time, so I would be surprised if you decided to keep going with it.

    I’m glad you got into all of the classes you wanted! I would have dropped Assembly Programming if I were in your position, but that’s only because I don’t like assembly, haha.

    Aah, vague professors are hard to get used to. That’s good that you’re getting to know others in the class though. It always nice to be able to study or get help with other people in the class 🙂

    Happy 1.5 years to you two! The soups look tasty 😀 I love how much money you can save with homemade dishes!

    My goodness, that looks good. Congrats on your 1.5 year anniversary! It’s nice seeing couples going strong. So happy for you two. 😀

    Wow, a 7-hour gap? And here I thought the 5-hour gap was bad. I don’t like that feeling, but it is all about trade-offs. I can see why dropping it isn’t a bad idea. Good luck this semester! 🙂
