What I’m hoping for: Japanese 202, Chinese 102, Japanese Religious Traditions, and Asian Calligraphy.
Japanese and Japanese Religions are guaranteed because of my major, and probably Chinese (the time slot I want, at least) as well since I’m already sophomore. Asian Calligraphy only has 15 slots and fills up pretty fast. I hope I get in, because there aren’t a lot of other classes I want to take next semester. Tibet: Real and Imagined conflicts with the other three, but it sounds so interesting. ;-; I guess Chinese History (post-1600) would be a good choice, and it fits perfectly into my schedule, though it doesn’t sound quite as interesting—but maybe that’s just me being stubborn right now. I’m tempted not to even take a fourth class since I have some extra credits from IB, and the stuff I really want to take isn’t available until next year… But I feel like having fewer classes would either be relieving or let me get too soft.
Thinking about it, the mere fact that Chinese History fits so perfectly though makes me want to pick that class from the start. Plus it’s probably just good stuff to know. And it doesn’t interfere with tai chi.
But… art? More than that, calligraphy and ink painting? There mere fact that we have a class for this is incredible, let alone my growing passion for the subject. I’m not sure I care that I don’t really understand the professor in the art class I’m taking from him now.
I’m glad I still have some time to figure this out. What to do…
