"To name an object is to supress three-quarters of the enjoyment to be found in a poem... suggestion, that is the dream."

Survived my first week as a student (again). Though my experience has been and will be different from my earlier attempt back in 2009/2010. One of the first things is the entire class is male. Great... :/ I genuinely was hoping for a little bit of diversity. 75% of my group are not even 20, and only myself and 2 others are over 25, one of whom is Spanish and has difficulty understanding English. Call me biased but I seriously doubt I'd form any friendship with a) a group of moody prepubescent teenagers, b) a group who still get horny from world of warcraft and c) a group of loudmouths who like to giggle while I'm trying to concentrate on solving a series of equations. So for this semester and the next, I'm gonna be alone. Don't get me wrong, I'll participate in say group discussions/activities in class, but when it's break, lunch, or home, it's my time not theirs.

Regardless of my disappointment of a class, the actual substance of my course is really interesting and because I studied non-stop for several months even before the course began, I have a distinct advantage. :nod: Which is bloody great for me, since all I need to do is carry on and revise what I already know until I have it memorised.

Monday, I have from 9am to 1:15pm I have four hours of Electrical Engineering, where I'll be studying Electrical Principles, DC Machines, Circuit Symbol Principles, and some other stuff, after that at 2:15pm until 4:30pm I have a Computing class, where all assignments are open-book, which will be easy as pi.

Tuesday, from 9am until 11:15am I have Math, which for the first time in my life is so easy I only about stopped myself from laughing. For this semester I'm looking at Algebra and Trigonometry, and oh graphing too. All of which I studied to the point if exhaustion. After that until 12:15am I have a Learner Development thing I have to attend. :shrug: Don't really know why it's important, but meh, I'll attend since it's only an hour. From 1:15pm to 4:30pm, I'm stuck in the basement a la "workshop" learning how to strip cables, install plugs, sockets, light fixtures and learning about trunking. Which means I have to wear a stupid boiler suit. :/ I know for certain I'm definitely not interested in becoming an electrician. I'll try my best and enjoy the most of it, but I hope come next year that I'll be able to work with integrated circuit boards more as an electronics engineer than an electrical engineer. :dummy:

Wednesday, 9am until 11:15am, I'm blessed with the oh so great Communications. *Cue sarcastic yay!* Yay! Ugh, this is essentially designed to see how competent I am in reading, speaking, and writing. Though me and my lecturer kind of got off on the wrong footing. Ask a simple question, and you get a moody response, followed by uncalled for rudeness. Though I'm not some acne ridden brat, I held my tongue. I'm here to get what I need. He doesn't have to like me. He just has to do his job. To get through this course before Christmas, I have to write up a report, analysis a report and take minutes at a fictitious group meeting. Didn't help the first morning I was tasked with writing up a description of a system from work. Which is annoying because a) I struggle to write or think on the spot, b) I'd been up since 5am, a time my body is still getting used to and which by 9am I'm either cranky or I'm comfortably numb in lalaland, and c) I can't friggin' remember half of what I did when I worked. Half the time I was stacking shelves and thinking about other things. Oh, and my report is supposed to be based on a problem from work. :shrug: I have a week to scratch around in my brain to find a plausible problem from the times I did work to write up a 1,400 word report. Gah! :facepalm: After Communication, I'm back doing my Electrical Engineering from 11:15am till 1:15pm, lunch, then 2:15pm until I go home at 4:30pm.

And that essentially is my week at College for the foreseeable future. I'll still be around, I'm not going to stop writing or being active. :nod: Though if I have an exam then I'll need to revise. :nod:

Oh, and in other news. The College refectory which I tried, was meh. The meal was okay. But served on a paper party plate, with plastic knife and fork? Uhm, no. I'm a student not a madman. I had to break three knives just to cut a chicken breast. :/ What happened to good ol' fashioned stainless steel cutlery? My solution after Monday, was to start bringing in a ready prepared meal by moi. :nod:

If anyone is interested in learning a little about electricity and a bit about circuits let me know, and I'll write up a journal. :squee:
