Today was the day classes should start and we should have been given our class schedule on the weekend, but unfortuneatly there was no class schedule there. – Business as usual, everything is a little lazy here in the Philippines. So the bad thing about it was, that I have a class on Monday morning 7.30am if my first prefence courses were confirmed. But since I had no confirmation of my class schedule I had to go their by chance. Fortuneatly there was class and I was assigned.
The class on Monday is about ‘Performance and Presentation’ and I really liked, especially because it is a very small class of only eleven people, which offers a very good learing atmosphere.
I had chosen only courses on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. But when I went to the Office for International Programs to ask for my schedule I got to know that my schedule actually has changed and now I have courses Monday to Thursday. This is a pity, cos this means less time for travelling. I thought about skipping the course on Monday, cos on Thursday there are two courses, but since I really liked this special class today I decided to last it as it is for now.
I am really excited for the next courses cos actually the class on Monday is relatively lean back, but usually one has to do a lot (!) of homework. Let’s see.
Now that I have classes from Monday to Thursday I have to choose my cuts ((Schwänzen) wisely, cos there are only three cuts for each class in a whole semester. I think I will have to get used to this kind of school-like system. But actually I am convinced to learn a lot, cos I am forced to work a lot for university during the semester.
