Back to School

I'm going back to school today. Film 201 class under "the" Doctor Joel David. I'm scared. I didn't expect to be taking up a major subject already. When I had myself enlisted last week, I was sure I would take up Film 112 since that's the remaining prereq subject I have to take for not being a Film major in my undergrad. I was obviously surprised when Prof. Armi (adviser) told me that I need NOT take Film 112 and can proceed already with the subjects ending in 200+. I was taken aback coz I wasn't prepared, didn't even study the course curriculum. I looked at the five subjects for MA students of freshman standing. There's Media Studies 20something with my undergrad thesis adviser as professor but I was thinking I might not be ready to take that subject yet coz I still don't know my regular work sked and having her, as a teacher really requires full concentration on her class. It also helps that I read in Miaka's blog what happened to Luthien who was her student last sem and who felt the grade she gave was unfair. It got me scared. I'd like to think I left a good impression on her and I don't wanna destroy that by coming to her class unprepared. So I had no choice but just to take Film 201. I don't know what the subject is about. Film seminar something. I know what you're thinking. Is this the mind of an MA student? :)

Yeah, I guess you can't go to the class of our thesis adviser unprepared. Dami problema nun ngayon. Her husband has TB of the spine. From what I heard they have spent a lot for his medical fees na. Di nga ata natapos yung dissertation niya kasi nag-aalaga siya ng asawa niya. Kaya rin siguro pati sa class nadadala niya yung mga problema niya.

Thanks Dawnie. I really need all the luck now coz it's going to be a very hectic schedule (see June 13 entry). :(

Jax, thanks for dropping by my blog. First day was nakaka-tense coz there were only 5 of us sa class. Na realized ko mahahalata ako pag mag-aabsent ako. :) Nakakatakot din coz andaming requirements. Tapos my classmates look very artsy-fartsy pa kaya nakaka-intimidate. :)
