bored. to. tears.
I am very glad that summer sessions are short, because the class I am currently taking ("Fundamentals of Human Resource Management") is draining the life right out of me. The information is fine (mostly legal aspects of HR) and the instructor is actually entertaining (he's not an ass, he has a sense of humor, his lectures are very informative) but the class is FOUR HOURS LONG. Twice a week, 6:30 to 10:45pm, for 5 weeks. Luckily, we usually don't go the full four hours, but still, three hours of sitting on my butt, after a long hard day of sitting on my butt, well, it takes a toll on my butt. The business building is completely wired (ethernet and power supply at every seat), and I am grateful for that -- I can't imagine taking a business class without my laptop. I do use it to take notes (my handwriting is atrocious), but being able to check the news/sports/blogs keeps me awake.
Believe it or not, this class is an elective
. We have to take three electives along with the core classes for our concentration (mine is management), but with all the cutbacks in the budget results in cutbacks in classes. So, not only are the electives the first to go, the ones that remain are at odd times. With only two more semesters to go (fall and spring), I didn't want to take the chance that I'd be one elective short, so I grabbed this one during the summer session. Next semester's elective is a bit more relevant to me, "Management Issues in High Tech Firms". Yeah, they tend to have issues.
