They're decent for a last semester.

Being a comm major rocks sometimes when there are like 20 chicks and 3 other dudes in every class.

Ah fair enough, that's pretty clever. Which field are you working in?

You must be the most unhelpful teacher in your school. When kids ask for an explanation about something, you say "read the damn book".

I'm a Computer Science major, btw.

Yeah, I here that. Music never really made sense to me as much of a minor because you'd be forced to do a lot of shit that wouldn't help you as a "hobbyist" musician. Music has always been number one for me though, so this CS course is fun, but at times I just don't need that shit.
I don't know what music theory is.

Soundcloud. Look at it. Or don't.

English- boring, tedious, but tolerable. Teacher is a good guy, so that makes up for it.
History- I like learning about history in a casual setting, but my teacher is this traditional dude who does little to make the material interesting.
Statistics- It's stats. It's confusing, but I'm doing fine in it.
American Gov. & Politics- Again, I like poli sci, but I've already taken this course in high school, so its just a boring repeat. Teacher is excellent however.
Class Piano- Took this to learn piano, and I am slowly but surely. Each class is pretty much one giant practice session with the teacher there to supervise and help you. Good class.

I'd really like to leave community college and study music, but 4 year universities are much more expensive.
I pride myself on my humility.

All the classes I thought would be hard, Physics, IB Chem, and Pre-Calc, are easy, meanwhile IB English is kicking my ass hard enough for 3 classes. I have an A in there, but it's not been easy.

I find Intro to Programming incredibly fun and entertaining, I love the feeling when the answer to a solution hit' s you like a truck when you least expect it, it' s awesome.

Calculus 2 is a bit challenging although not that much since it' s mostly formulas and knowing algebra/calculus 1.

English: Literature and Writing is... meh, another obligatory English class I have to take, nothing special.

And Computer Graphic Engineering until now it' s been pretty easy and interesting. I don't know how much I will use it when I graduate since it' s mostly AutoCAD and that' s used more on other branches of Engineering like mechanical, not so much in Computer Engineering (I think... I could be horribly wrong).

So in general, this semester has been pretty relaxing compared to what I know I will have to deal with in the next few years.

Statistical physics: Not too hard. So many Gaussian integrals though.
Quantum 1: Quite doable up until now. Also a lot of integrals.
Fourier theory: ******edly easy for now.
Group theory: Kicking my ass good. It's hard.
Probability: Nothing I haven't seen in high school.
Subatomic physics: Not too hard yet, but has the potential to destroy me later on I'm guessing.

It's a lot of work per week, but it's manageable. Next semester should be a little easier to manage, because some of the subjects above assume that I have taken a preceding course, which I did not, or am still doing right now.

Lets see

Psychology 101 - Took it to fill out my General Elective. Pretty easy.
Jogging - Hooray for community college making me get gym credits! Easy, but **** am I out of shape
Assembly Programming - Perhaps a mistake. I'm not a Comp-Sci major, but I like programming as a hobby. This is stupidly hard compared to C and C++. Starting to wish I had taken Java......
Intro to Linux - Stupidly easy class because i'v been using Linux for years now. It's entirely command line driven though, so i'm still learning a lot of new things.
Computer System Analysis - Hard, but only because it's online only and required to graduate. If we had proper lectures and didn't have to read the book cover-to-cover, i'd probably find this class to be easier.

Statics - A breeze so far
Dynamics - understandable but annoyingly difficult
Thermodynamics - I thought I knew what was going on till I bombed my midterm yesterday. No big; there will probably be a bell curve,
Fluid Mechanics - What is this shit
Technical Communications -

Required basic English: Stupidly easy. I took AP Lang in high school and got a 5, but starting this year they give no credit for it no matter what. AP Lang was so much harder than this class, and since we have to do things like write pieces of online journalism, I feel my writing is actually going backwards.

Econ 101: Interesting subject, but I honestly wish we did more math in this course since there are so many obvious applications for calculus.

International Relations: Class is boring as balls, but the material is quite stimulating. I've actually rethought some of my views on US foreign policy as a result.

Introduction to Jazz: It's not really a music class, it just teaches the history of Jazz and will sometimes delve lightly into the theory of it. Still, it has introduced to me to a ton of awesome music, and I haven't taken a class this easy since freshman year of high school.

Calculus 2: I love math, so it's not surprising I love this. Sufficiently difficult to sometimes be a challenge, but I'll almost definitely have an A. I sometimes take a break from other work by doing math homework.
