Back to Houghton

I’m back from Grand Rapids now, and have officially started school. It looks like it’s going to be a busy semester for me—I have a huge number of classes that I don’t really want to be taking.

I’m finishing up German, and while I enjoy the language I don’t particularly enjoy the class. And I have physics at 8:00 on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, which is a miserable way to start a morning. I also have calculus 3, which is a little closer to my computer science major, so I won’t complain about that.

I’m working at the writing lab, which is a free editing service Houghton offers to it’s students—a sort of mini-editing workshop that anyone can use. It’s a great idea, and I’m really looking forward to it. It’ll be a good place for me to practice the things I learned this summer. I’m also working as a TA for the computer science department, grading a bit, and doing a help session in the evening. I’ll probably end up with about six hours of work a week, which is enough to buy myself books, and so it is enough.

I had my first fiction class today. It’s a good group, it looks like. A couple good friends of mine are in it with me, and I’ve never really had a class with a close friend since I’ve started college. This will be nice.

I’m planning to get together with a couple friends to go over the baby-steps of Artifice, and a couple of things they’re working on as well, probably tomorrow. I’m looking forward to it.

The semester is suddenly looking up—I was nervous about it before. I’ll post again with something of actual merit soon.

    Hello! I’m rather jealous about your fiction class, even though I’m not really into writing fiction. I probably feel that way just because you’re in the class – I really liked having a class with you. Props for getting into the writing center!! I applied for that too but didn’t make it – maybe next year. I know your semester will be great.

    Sounds exciting, David.
    All those sacry sounding classes! Physics and calculus-
    the little hairs on the back of my neck did a little dance.

    i’ll be returning to school next fall and am terrified to be honest.

    Best of luck to you in your writing group and all of your classes.
