a.k.a. Another Day, Another $300
So I literally have TWO OTHER CLASSES that I am not taking now that I can take EVER at BCC towards my major. British Literature and Teaching Diverse Populations. They only teach Brit Lit during the day (way to go, BCC) and a class I am taking now is a pre-requisite for Teaching Diverse Populations. I have to do 16 hours of field experience for one of the classes I am in now. Teaching Diverse Populations also requires 16 hours of field experience. Last night, the teacher was saying if you were in both of the classes, you had to do all 32 hours with the same coordinating instructor. I’m like, “But this is a pre-requisite for the other. How is that possible?” “Oh, we were trying to get it removed as a pre-requisite; we don’t agree with the policy. The department head will override it for you.”
(By the way, if last night’s class demographics says anything, our future teachers are mostly very big and very black.)
So of course today I go see the department head.
How long would you think it takes to get a little blue card signed, then handed over to registration? Two hours, apparently. No, I bought a book too. There were 22 people in line. I counted.
I was not dressed for this. I should have been wearing my crocs. Seriously. Instead, for some reason, today I decided to dress up. Longish-sleeve black polyester dress. High heels. By the end of my two hours on campus, 90-ish degrees (remember, everything is outside here!), I was carrying
my shoes. Whimpering. Wondering why it takes two hours to do anything this simple.
But I am registered!
And thankfully, I found an online version of the class still open. With an instructor I took previously! So I got to meet her in person today. Saw her office. Apparently she’s a diver, so we chatted a little bit about that. I’m now obligated to send her some pictures in a few months. :)
The funny thing is that I had to go to the South Campus to get this done, where I have never taken classes. Man, that place is ghet-to. Lots of gold teeth and stuff. And the best part – there was actually a lone braid on the ground. Some poor chick’s weave was coming apart at the seams…
After this semester, I just have, um.. 21 classes to go! *forced smile* Just 21!
Ooh! I have a photography tutor! First session is Saturday afternoon! That should be fun! We’re going to Gumbo Limbo! I think! Or the beach! Or something! His pics are here
. Hopefully he can give me a handle on the basics. I need the help!!!
