    First Day

    Was this not the crappiest first day of a semester? Cold, windy, after a four week break? Ouch.

    Re: First Day

    Yeah it was definitely cold, but I didn't mind mostly 20 min. classes with just going over the syllabus.

    Pretty much, yeah. Doesn't help that I have a 4 hour lecture/lab on Mondays.

    You are very clearly not an engineering student.

    20 min classes? says Dr. Chimenti.

    Had class from 9-4 today and no I am not an engineer. But I got to cook BROCCOLI today and watch water boil for 3 hours. Doesn't that sound like fun!!

    My MBA classes started tonight again. My marketing class went over by 15 minutes. I get frustrated at that. We can get our grade docked for being late (remember, we all work full-time), but some of the profs run after 9:15 consistently. I wish my respect of their time was reciprocated.

    Re: First Day

    I had class from 9-1 with really nothing serious during that span. But I fell asleep for about 20 minutes during my Finance 301 class this afternoon. I really needed a nap and it was my only class that actually got anything accomplished.

    I remember that class and understand why you feel asleep.

    Which prof?

    Premkumar. My roommate had her a couple years ago and she was exactly like he described her.

    She told these jokes and only one person laughed. It was very awkward.

    Yeah, but think of all the weekday basketball games you are missing.

    Let me be the first to say:




    I love being out of school. Of course I miss the no responsibility life and being able to drink all the time without being called an alcoholic.


    They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. - Benjamin Franklin 1775
