Had my first day of classes for 3rd term. 29 more class days to go, which seems surprisingly short, but since I only have three days of classes a week, isn't that short. Honestly, based on first impressions, that should be just right for standing and learning from my philosophy professor, 28 days too long for my journalism prof and by far to short for my English/writing prof.

I'm pretty much set to declare an English Lit major and continue to be impressed by the faculty I've interacted with from the department. The department is a major draw for my school, and I'm really starting to see why.

Bit less enthused with the journalism department considering my prof this term is the only one full time. I'm planning a journalism minor, so I guess I'll have to get use to him, and I know his demands are going to make me a better journalist and consumer of media, but really not stuff I wanted to hear coming off a six week break. Excited for the newspaper to start back up though.

Moved into my friend's room at term, and really like it more than my old suite/room. Dunno if I ever mentioned that drama here, but long story short this guy is my third planned roommate. First one didn't get a visa, then the second one got suspended first week of class last term. It's a change actually having a roommate, but also nice to have someone around. Makes leaving the people back home a little easier to have a more solid community to live in here.
