School happened. (part 1) 26 December 2009

It’s Christmas vacation already and this is my first post since the first week of 2nd semester. What happened? School happened, that’s what. Since my schedule is whole day this sem, I don’t have afternoons off like last time. The only time I could go online was at night when I’m home, but that time is often spent on plurk, gmail, or chatting with my boyfriend. And often while online, I’m also working on something else for school in front of Nanashi, my laptop. I do have a gigantic 4-1/2 hour break on Fridays, but so far that time has been spent doing errands that I should’ve done during sembreak.

So here’s a quick wrap-up of my schoolwork.

From August 11 to 14, I suppose some school stuff happened this week..I’m just not focused on it. I was more concerned with sleeping in Makati and Quezon City on alternate days because my beloved just flew off to spend a year in the far east this morning.

Oh yeah, my ID114 midterms was also today, but I was too much in a daze. I got to school just in time straight from the airport and I only had two hours of sleep. I did study a bit, but… bleh. I couldn’t care less, actually.

Back in my 8 AM class, I got in just before the supposed time which was great considering I took public transportation and walked all the way across the university from Central to CHE. As I mentioned before, five minutes after stepping out of the room I totally forgot what we were supposed to be discussing today. Therefore, I didn’t read ahead. And apparently so did the rest of the class.

Anyway, after a small reprimand and another reminder to read ahead and be prepared before class, Ma’am Faustino set up her visuals and presented us with a (very lengthy) presentation: Overview of the history of furniture. Same as the history of Western Architecture, the historical periods were the same, so it’s not as if I’m at a loss during the discussion. I could still pipe in a comment or two when asked, though I should still reread some notes and books I have at home.

After the slide show, each of us were made to recite one thing that we learned from the class. That’s good. We learned something!

This time I was determined not to forget the topic for next meeting. I had my pen and paper at the ready… and guess what? We’ll have a plate next meeting! We have to get a reference photo of a chair from history (from Ancient times to 21st century) that we like and ink it on an A4 sheet with a description and title block. The thing is, we could begin our plates at home, but we will do it in class as well. I’m just not too clear as to how much we can do at home and how long do we have next meeting to finish them? Huh. I don’t know. I guess I’ll just find out then.

okay, since my much-awaited first day of school redux has been moved a week, I’m sort of out of things to do right now. Besides walking around the house I’ve been stressing my eyes by being online on the desktop PC, organizing my music files on the Nanashi the laptop, and (if the show is good enough) watchin TV… SIMULTANEOUSLY. It also doesn’t help that I saw this feature on Dry Eye Syndrome on TV, because it made me feel like I’m having symptoms.

Anyway, since there’s nothing school-related happening around here, I’ll just direct you all to my other internet stuff:
