Arabic 102: This is going to be significantly harder than I had anticipated, but I'm greatly looking forward to it. We started working on verbs this week, which is about where he stopped with last year's 102 class. Abuna Michael is always entertaining, and has an obvious enthusiasm for the class.
Persuasive Writing: Not entirely sure where this class is going yet, but I have faith in C-Mack. I felt the same way at the beginning of Journalism as Lit, and we all know how THAT turned out. Besides, with the whole peanut gallery back in the class, even if all the other students decide to try and make the class boring, we won't allow it!
Media Law: Not going to lie, this class seems pretty boring right now. We're just going over the judicial system and how it works, so I'm hoping there will be an improvement when we get into case reviews.
History of Rock and Roll: This class is going to be AMAZING. On the first day, we listened to 13 songs and had to identify them, and while I only could name half of them, I liked ALL of them. Any teacher that promises to spend a semester talking about The Beatles, The Stones, Cream, Deep Purple and all my other favorites has MY undivided attention.
20th Century History in Film: Another class that I have very high hopes for. The Maltese Falcon, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Ghost World and two teachers that think Jim Jarmusch is the only honestly independent filmmaker left? Sounds like a recipe for AWESOME to me.
Also, I figured out my living arrangements last night, but more on that later.
