Elementary German I
Introduction to the basic elements of spoken and written German, with emphasis placed on the acquisition of communication skills. Readings and discussion focus on cultural differences.
since i plan to major in history i wanted to jump right in and take a bunch of history classes, but the online class options are limited. also, i haven't finished my fall application yet (for penn summer classes they write you a note like 'do u want 2 go here check yes or no' and if you check 'yes' you can register, but you have to apply for fall) and don't really have a "plan" as far as what classes i'll take. i assume i need a language and i already know german so this should be easy. or annoying, because i've heard online classes are annoying.
i tried to find a picture of a person in a mortarboard at a computer but came up emptyhanded
like, it's one thing to be jammed into a classroom with a bunch of idiots, but having to like.. post on a forum with them seems like it would be much worse, since people are a lot more brave on the internet. maybe since LPS focuses on working professionals and people over 21, the class will be full of like... grown-ups? but grown-ups are also stupid a lot of the time. please reassure me.
last night we raided, which was okay. we're kind of on auto pilot in ICC25. the new people in the guild are mostly okay, but two of them are dating and they are constantly flirting with each other and it's super fucking annoying. like, internet flirting in a way that indicates to me that they've probably never hung out in real life. their break-up is going to be hilarious. anyway, i can't wait until cataclysm comes out and i can just do ten mans with 9 people i like.
in the new expansion, i can also make a goblin dude !
today is a jeans day at work in honor of the phillies game tonight (i'm not going- they gave out free tickets this year but only for staff members. usually they let everyone have 4 tickets so you can bring friends !) and i don't own jeans so i'm wearing leggings and a skirt and a cruddy t-shirt. basically how i dress in real life, but i wore a t-shirt with the original neck instead of a gaping hole where i cut the neck off. FASHION.
i guess i'm going to go do a million works.
