Got up, downloaded my econ textbook to my kindle, and went to school. Normal class the first period, then a period in the library where I started my econ notes. There was a computer free, so I went online and lo and behold! the class was in my online profile (it takes up to a day to have it show up, so I didn't have it the whole first day of class). Went though all the material quick, figured out what I needed to do, and then did more notes.
Had English next (just read short stories), and the science. They had to do some study for the exam, so I had another period of working on econ. Home, watched some TV and worked more (see a theme yet?). There is a discussion post due every Wednesday, and since I didn't know what to do until today, I had a lot of reading to do before I could do the discussion. Went and got a haircut - first one since being in Belgium! Got only the split ends off, which was like 2 inches :P
Home, just studied and ate and studied more. Took like 10 pages of notes overall today. A lot of it is still review (since I took a microecon course fall of 2010, though through a different school), but it's good to rewrite and really make sure I grasp the basics. Probably writing a bit too much, but better that than too little. And a looot of graphs and tables. I'm using a lot of colors in the notes to keep me interested. :P Finished Chapter 1 with notes, like a third of the way through Chapter 3. Each week we have like 2-3 chapters to do, a discussion post due on Wednesday, a response to someone else's post due by Sunday, do the problem set by Sunday, and do the quiz by Sunday. It's 5 weeks long so afterwards I think I'll really appreciate what time I have left in summer :P
Anyway, I just posted my discussion question, so that means I can go to bed without worrying (I can post it up to 7am my time because of the timezone difference~), so slaapwel!
