Syllabus week, the most interesting week of the quarter. You go to class the first day, but you don't necessarily do anything. Yeah sure, you have some classes that quickly go over the syllabus and get right to business with a lecture and notes, but most go over the syllabus for 45 minutes and then do an icebreaker. Icebreakers are the worst, they are awkward and nobody wants to do them. It is obvious. When a teacher hands out a notecard and asks everyone to write 2 truths and 1 lie, you can see eyes stare out the window or down at cell phones. I understand teachers want students to get to know each other, but there is no way that will happen in one class over one icebreaker. Just ask general info and one interesting question and move on. Students always expect to get out early too. If a teacher starts with the syllabus and then moves to material, almost every students starts packing up at least 15 minutes before the class is supposed to end, if they haven't been let out already.
Sometimes I wish we could skip the first day of class and just start on the second or third day. I also love the first couple days of class because there is hardly any work and it is easy to get settled in! And another plus, it's SPRING QUARTER! I absolutely love spring quarter, the weather is nice, the campus is beautiful, and fests!! I won't get into too much detail for fests... but they are the best! You can ask any bobcat, they will all agree fests are always a good time. Even buckeyes are copying us ad trying to start their own fests (copycats!!)
I also can't wait for this weekend. It is my birthday and my sister's! She was born on my 3rd birthday... And she is coming down to celebrate!! I also found out that some friends and I are going to road trip to HIlton Head memorial day weekend!! Which means I need to get in bikini body shape! Which means salad and fruit for me!
Spring quarter got the best of Matt last year, let's hope it doesn't happen again! Hahah
