Alhamdulillah the first day for the 2nd session of the summer has been awesome so far. Still the same schedule, 10:00 to 11:40 and then from 12:00 to 13:45, but instead of Spanish 1 and Technical Writing, they are Heat Transfer and Business & Society. After those two classes, I went to work in Oliphant EIIS Computer Lab from 3-5 and then I will have a promise to meet my friend at 5.
Business & Society class was fine, and alhamdulillah I guess I don't really have to think about it since I'm taking it as pass and fail. I saw a lot of athletes and nursing major students there and one of my Angolan ex-classmates from spanish 1 was also there so at least, alhamdulillah I knew someone over there. The material was, to be honest, pretty much, I'm sorry to say, boring. However, it is interesting that this class will not have a session on Monday the 3rd and Tuesday the 4th since I'll be gone to this Summer Training Camp in Philadelphia. However, there is this creepy thing about this class. The professor is a double major in nursery besides in business and so she conducted an extra credit for everyone who wants to participate in this grad psychology students. It is said that it's gonna be about influence in physiological condition due to several visual treatments and the creepy part is that she said it will involve some gore and sexual aspects in a video to be shown and on the body of student who's gonna participate in this research, some censors will be put to detect any changes in blood pressure, sweat amounts, and so on. She said it's gonna be 20 extra credits (out of 1000) to attend this research. Though this latter reason is interesting, but still, knowing what's gonna be shown made me feel disgusted.
If I didn't really enjoy that business class, I really really really enjoy my Heat Transfer class. Alhamdulillah on this first day, the material is not getting too hard yet, but the most interesting part is, obviously, the professor. When he explained the sylabus, I asked about whether there will be a class on Monday the 3rd since it's gonna be between weekend and US independence day and I'm concerned about this since as I said earlier, I'm gonna go to a summer camp that day. Awfully, he said it's not gonna be a holiday, I was disappointed at a time since he mentioned "we don't want to overcelebrate this independence day, do we?" However, alhamdulillah in his syllabus, attendance is not included in grading criteria, so I will skip class that day anyway, but then I will have to finish the HW due that day. Despite the fact that he won't make Monday the 3rd a holiday for us, he cracked me out when he was explaining the basic principle of convection, a heat movement where the medium material moves along with the heat. First he said an example of boiling water, and then he gave an example in smoking. Speaking of smoking, he said he's not been smoking since 37 years ago. However, he could still imagine the enjoyment of it and even sometimes he liked to hang around with smoking people to inhale the smoke. In addition to that, he said that he still often has a dream of litting the cigarrete. But the last sentence was the best part, "Oh well, that was several wives ago" I didn't really realize it until several seconds after he said it. He just introduced a new units of times (I believe metric) to us in that class, wives. Jajajaja.
Well, gotta continue my life,
