I've been extraordinarily busy over the past few months. Between the start of CLC, the start of regular school, teaching piano, forcing myself to be social (EVERY. DAY.), and getting a new dog, it's been pretty insane in my life.
I have to say, one of the biggest adventures in my life has been the start of CLC. It's a community college around my area, and I've been taking American History 2 there. It's a fun class, and I can more or less find my classroom without incident now, but the first few times were insane.
In fact, I think I probably looked nuts the first few times, muttering to myself and attempting not to make eye contact with everyone and walking back and forth trying to find my classroom.
Another amazing fact of my class is the amount of idiots in it. You'd think that because it's a college class, that there would be fewer idiots.
In fact. There are several people in my class. Who I just want to grab. And smack. And wonder what they're even thinking.
The first Thursday class we had, we had to read evidence selections from people such as Booker T. Washington. All influential black speakers from reconstruction at the end of the civil war.
At class, we were seperated into groups, and we were each given a piece of evidence to think about, describe, and then analyze out loud to the class.
We were in the middle of talking about it when this girl in my group opened her mouth and said...
"This is kind of a stupid question.... But are all these people black?"
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
WE WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT HOW THESE ARE ALL BLACK SPEAKERS WHO HAD DIFFERENT IDEAS OF HOW TO GAIN AFRICAN AMERICAN EQUALITY.
Like... I don't even understand this!
And how come I'm the one who always ends up doing the talking? I'm in a classroom with a bunch of other older kids.
And yet I'm always the one raising my hand because the teacher is looking for class participation and everyone else seems to have gone temporary mute.
I shake my head at you, college kids.
So, right now I'm actually taking a break from reading my assignment for tomorrow's class.... It's rather boring, but I'm entertaining myself by taking notes about everything on it.
I promise I'll post more later!
