I totally meant to do the rest of the Talkative December prompts (and may still do them!) but then school started and my Alienware decided to bite it on the same day. As far as I can tell, I shorted out something dealing with the power switch and battery charging, which probably means a new mobo, which means probably $100+, which means I'm now investigating buying a new laptop that has more than an i3 processor and ports that don't wiggle. In the meantime, I talked my mom into letting me put Mint on her EeePC (instead of the godawful netbook version of WinXP it had) and am using that, though it is tiny, and an Atom CPU means Firefox maxed out CPU and closed itself like four times yesterday.

Classes are going fairly well, although a week and a half in it's hard to say. Linear Algebra is going to be the hardest by far because all of my advanced math skills are really rusty, and it's a theory-heavy class and while I can usually manage if I have actual numbers to manipulate, I am so not good at theoretical math and proofs.

Arts of China is less interesting than the Japanese Architechture class I wanted to take (it got cancelled because of low enrollment), but it's still pretty interesting. Introduction to Theatrecraft has quickly turned into my favorite because it's all so interesting, and we get to make things! And do lights and sound for the theatre department productions (which this term includes Twelfth Night).

My computer science class (you know, the thing I'm majoring in) is actually the dullest, because it is Intro Java, and I need 'so you know another programming language and just need to know Java's conventions' and not 'let's talk about what an IDE is'. It's also from 5:30 to 7pm aka the point at which I have been on campus for eight hours already and just want to go home.
