Looking ahead

This promises to be quite a week. Not only is it the first full work week in 2008, it’s also the week school begins (I start Wednesday). After dropping a cool $222.10 on books, I’m ready for the semester ahead. I’m taking a class that talks about mass media’s impact on society, a television news class (yay possible vlogging!) and a sportswriting class (because, well, I can). The Mass Media and Society class is an 8am on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, so that will be quite a role reversal from the schedule I had been practicing (which is why I scheduled some hardware maintenance for 8am today — it’s a good jolt to the system).

I need to think of an independent study in communication of some type. It will likely involve the Internet in some capacity. Perhaps it could be a Twitter study of some type. We shall see. I need to think it over. (Suggestions?)

The spring semester also will bring a great deal of activity in a place where it may not be that wonderful — right outside my office. My office moved down a couple floors in my building before break — while the space is much larger, there’s also classrooms directly surrounding it, which will attract a lot of student conversation that could be high in volume. We’ll see what happens.

Finally, I love the fact that it was almost 70 today. It’s a great respite after that Arctic blast last week.

    I went back to work Thursday this previous week. Two days to Ghost three labs before classes started Monday. I’ve got a nice schedule this semester though. Three lecture classes and one online..the three lecture ones are all on Tuesday and Thursday, from 11:25 to 8:51pm, with a 5-hour layover in the middle. I’ve got the last three classes I need for my Associate’s and I needed one more to be full time, so I guess I’m minoring in Engineering Design (using AutoCAD). I’ve been drafting things up for years, but I figured it’s time I take classes for it.

    Side note: Did I miss something previously, or is there no way to log in for posting anymore?

    Don’t need to log in for posting anymore — I wanted to restrict the user database from now on to those with posting access (i.e. me). I’m still looking into an OpenID type of authentication, though, that’s independent of creating users directly in WP.
