Title.

I'm finding them okay.

Notation and Editing is a drag.
Minimalism and the Renaissance madrigal are typical musicology classes.
I'm really enjoying songwriting.

I also have to do a 12,000 word dissertation/thesis as well, but there isn't really classes for that.

What about you, pit?

Econ sucks.
Accounting sucks, though a bit less.
Calculus sucks.
Java is fun.

Marketing research is boring.
Innovations in marketing is also boring and my prof has ADD, so it's difficult to stay on topic.
Intro to visual communications is also a drag.
Global marketing in slightly interesting.
Intercultural communications is interesting.

Conducting - average, kind of gay
20th Century Music - my professor's a dick bag
Ethnomusicology - oh shit I just remember I have an assignment I need to start, other than that good
Choir - worst fucking 2 hours of my life
Composition Seminar - pretty chill, good times were had by all
Lessons - going fairly well, although the piece I'm writing write now is giving me fits
Computer Science 2 - what a fucking terrible idea that was

Boring as feck so far. Only two weeks into my first year though so we're just doing stuff I already know so that everyone's on a decent level to get started on.
#9
Same old, same old. Still failing the only class that decides whether I pass the year or not. Everything else is peace o' cake.
Quote by Ulalume
I had a friend who was held at gunpoint as a cashier. The robber told him to give him all the money in the register and what not. Apparently my friend then replied, "Would you like a slurpee with that?"
#10
English Lit - pretty cool, lots of sex and death
Biology - pretty cool, not too much harder than GCSE
History - shit loads to learn but good teacher
Chemistry - f**king difficult but I'll stick it out

Harder than the bsc, with a lot of "oh ofcourse" moments when seeing the actual answers to the assignments.

Computer science is booooring as shit.
Digging the economy and transport systems classes though.
Maths is crappy as always...when it won't be...there's gonna be something very wrong happening to me.
1. You're surfing the internet.
2. You're browsing through the UG forums.
3. You're reading now.
5. You didn't notice that there was no #4.
6. You just checked it.
7. Now you're having a lil smile.

Awesome. I'm doing 2 courses (3rd year History degree): Return to the Viking Homelands and American 20th Century Foreign Policy. Both are very interesting, and I'm only in 6 hours a week
#14
Basic Math: We spend the whole class doing our homework with the teacher. He teaches us how to do our homework then we do it. There's really no note taking or actual teaching but it's not hard.

History of Theatre: Can be boring but the professor tries to make it interesting and sometimes it is.

Intro to Environmental Science: Since it's my major I find it interesting, however the class is in lecture style and a lot of people end up falling asleep. I like it though.

Readings in Humanities: Teacher's funny, she's like 60 years old and a south park fan. She speaks French and sang the French Canada song from that Christmas in Canada episode of south park.

Overall I'd give my classes this semester 8/10

Easy yet infuriating.

Currently doing an apprenticeship, so studying for a NVQ Level 2 alongside working full time. Answering questions like "What is diversity" and "Explain the purpose and benefits of adapting to change" and "Explain reasons for knowing the purpose of communication." I want to slap whoever thought up these dreary and repeating questions.

Apparently my problem is that I consider the questions beneath me. Which considering the NVQ is equivalent to a GCSE when I have 10 GCSEs A*-B, 4 A-levels and have studied at university, I think I'm fair in being disdainful of the coursework.

Hard as hell, I'm taking one of the hardest undergrad physics classes at my university plus I have a 17 credit hour schedule all full of difficult classes I'm just happy I'm naturally adept at Engineering and Calculus or I'd be dead.

I've also had tests for the past 5 weeks, including 3 this week. I got 2 tests per week for the next 2 weeks, and then another test the week after those. It's very stressful and I have hardly any freetime...

Please say you've got mates with old ambulances and fire engines too. That'd be brilliant.

Culture & Lit - Focusing on Chinese/Japanese Poetry: It's easy and I'm being a lazy ****. I need to pick it up a bit.
Introduction to Chinese culture: See above. We're learning the same shit.
Chinese 301: I'm killing it. Pretty sure I have a 4.0 right now.
Astronomy: Pretty easy, I need to pick it up just a little but I'm doing fine for the most part.

Difficult but interesting so I'm happy, doing the neurology semester in medical school, a ridiculous amount of work though!

Pretty easy so far, fun though.
Music Theory I, Ear Training I, Keyboard I....easiest classes on earth. Should've took higher level classes.
Writing & Research, pretty boring and long. 2 hours of just chatting takes a very long time
History of American Popular Music is a 3 hour class, and i don't know enough about the 1920's i've discovered.
I'm typing this in Music Industry Economics while we're watching a talk with John Mayer talking about the music business. Pretty interesting, aka i love this class.
And Choir, witch is fantastic.

Getting really to do an internship the school sets up in the spring. Kind of dreading that.

Orgo is pretty interesting, survey of criminal justice is also entertaining.

Enjoying the new major quite a bit.

College Algebra- bro I was in Calculus in high school, this shit's easy. I'm only taking it to help my gpa
Chemistry I- should probably be easier than it is, but it confuses the hell out of me almost every class
Intro to Teaching- easy, and pretty interesting and fun
Human Growth and Development- dear god why did I take this class? There's so much to know and so little I care about

Database Management Systems -- Going even better
Astronomy -- Going good
Linear Algebra -- So many matrices

It's part of my government funded apprenticeship. As well as on the job training I complete an NVQ over the course of a year. I decided to apply for an apprenticeship because I wouldn't be competing with graduates (graduates cannot start an apprenticeship) or people who had more work experience. I take a lower wage but by the end of it I will have full employee benefits and a good prospects ahead within the company.
Thankfully I didn't have to go into college to do the certificates in Level 2 Maths, English and ICT. I probably would have killed people if they'd made me do Level 2 Maths considering I started BSc Mathematics and Meteorology

What the fuck


Well it was meant to be a lmgtfy link but that's barely more useful. Basically, stop being lazy when you could very very easily find out what an NVQ is.

Fire protection (extinguishers etc). Incredibly male dominated (according to one of our suppliers, I'm the 2nd female technician out of all their distributors) but I get on well with everyone and enjoy it. I love being able to work with my hands and not be stuck at a desk all day.

I found it to be the opposite. I was a music minor for one semester, until I found out that music studies really made me do a bunch of shit I didn't care for. I loved music theory, but things like sight-reading are bullshit to me (because I'll probably never use that ability). I since became a math minor.

I'm a Computer Science major, btw.

For me it's a mixed bag, I really like some of my teachers and subjects but some of the others I find flat out incompetent
#39
The assignments in social statistics are really easy, but I'm worried I'm not really learning too much so when the test comes I'm screwed...
Social Inequality is easy and I like the professor a lot
Criminology is pretty intense because the professor expects a lot, but it'd very interesting so I don't really mind...
Oral Communication for Spanish is going well because it's helping me break out of my shell and talk more in Spanish
Latin American Lit is hard as **** because I can't understand the teacher: her Puerto Rican accent and the speed of her talk, and we read a lot of really hard poetry and shit in Spanish that I barely understand.
