Loving this new sweater I received via postage the other day. It's the perfect style for the in-between weather California has been having lately -- a knit material to keep me warm in the chill of the morning, with holes to add a bit of coolness when the breeze rolls through during the mid day heat. I also love the bright green color, especially since it matches my clutch. Now if only the weather would stay warm; I'm tired of worrying about dealing with the rain!

If you follow my twitter, then I'm sure you saw my melodramatic tweets about hating my polisci class, as well as the latter tweets about dropping said class. Well, my twitter doesn't lie, folks. Unfortunately, the class was just too much for me to handle. The expectations from my teacher were ridiculous and I just couldn't keep up with the work; I probably should have realized this when she assigned three essays for homework on the first day of class. The work load just began getting bigger and bigger, which resulted in stealing the focus I should have been putting on my other classes. My breaking point was the midterm -- my professors study guide was superfluous, to say the least, including about 30 terms (of which we had to know 5 relevant facts for each) and four essays. I mean, come on. This is an intro to political science course, at a junior college.
After dropping the course, I went through the all too common "stress cry phase", as I like to call it. I spent awhile telling myself that I was a failure for giving up on the class, that I should have gone through and finished it, yadda yadda yadda. After thinking rationally for a moment, I realized that in fact I wasn't a failure, and that I shouldn't have gone through and finished the course. Why? Because I would have failed the course and ended up negatively affecting the grades in my other classes. Some students just aren't able to be taught by certain teachers (I'm one of those students). Instead of crying over the stress of excessive assignments about federalism, the GOP and the Constitution, I'm going to take political science next semester with a different teacher, in a class that I'm able to balance with my others.
Now I'll have more time to focus on the three exams I have next week. Yay!
