MIT being MIT, stuff happens pretty quickly; and when it does, it's only a matter of time before it ends up online. So it is with my class schedule - I picked my classes on Thursday, and now my tentative schedule is available.

Ironically enough, my biggest problem now has nothing do with picking between 18.01A or 18.02, or 8.012 or 8.01, or 5.112 or 3.091, or....okay, I'll stop now. The point is, my GIRs are completely fine - hunky-dory, even! No conflicts to think of.

My conflict is now between my cherished HASS-D and my equally cherished FAS. Translated from MITspeak to English, that means my humanities class, How to Stage a Revolution, is conflicting with my advising seminar, The Engineer of 2020. And I don't want to drop either one, since I feel so lucky to have gotten into them in the first place - not to mention that it'd be very hard to get a good HASS-D at this point, and I don't know if it's even possible to switch advising seminars.

Maybe I'll just take biology. o_0

In other news, today is class photo, Greek Griller (AKA the start of Fraternity Rush/Sorority Recruitment), and the very first Notre Dame football game.

I know you're all very excited about that last one. ;)

My HASS-D conflicts with my FAS seminar as well - my advisor seems pretty chill, though, and said she's going to see if there are any other times that everyone is available to meet for our FAS. If not, she said that I can change seminars. I wouldn't give up How to Stage a Revolution, it's pretty sought after...

Hmm... hard choices... The HASS-D sounds awesome though, I'd recomend looking into changing the FAS seminar... But at least either way you'll be left with a great class :)
