So... I've been looking over my schedule for the Winter term, and I'm not liking it...  I don't really like the idea of having more than one break, or breaks that are more than 2hrs long.  Even 1.5 hours can be too long, but it's not too bad.

Here is what my schedule currently is for the Winter term:

HTST 200 9-9:50am

LING 201 11-11:50am

GRST 209 2-2:50pm (Fridays 1-1:50)

ARHI 203 11-12:15

RELS 203 2-3:15

Tuesdays and Thursdays are perfect, but I'm really not liking the MWF.  I don't really want a 1 hr break and then a 2 hr break.  The only catch is that I do really want to take the History class which is about 'events and ideas that shook the world'.  It's just at the worst time.  If it was 10-10:50 it would be perfect! Dang it.  There are also about 6 profs for this course which I find kind of odd.  Anyhow, here is the class description:

"This course introduces students to the historical craft through a series of short lecture sequences that focus on specific events, ideas, and individuals that changed the course of world history."

I'm also worried that I might really not enjoy the Linguistics class... Although I do think it would be a good course to take.  Here is the class description:

"A survey of basic linguistic concepts, including: universals of language; articulatory phonics and phonology of English and other languages; words and meaning; linguistic rules and the formation of sentences." 

I'm thinking of dropping the History class, and taking it another time.  Then I could take Anthropology 311 from 12-12:50 on MWF.  And probably switch the GRST lab to 2-2:50 so that I'd have a 1 hr break all three days for lunch instead of 3 back to back classes on Fridays.  I'm just not sure...  Here's the class description for ANTH 311:

"Primate behaviour and related topics: social dynamics, sociobiology, socio- ecology, dominance, aggression, kinship, sexual behaviour, socialization, learning, cognition, communication, ape language, and conservation."

The other option would be to switch out of Linguistics and into Philosophy 201 which is at the same time (11-11:50), but it has a lab on Wednesdays from 12-12:50 or Thursdays 9:30-10:20.  So I wouldn't be able to take ANTH 311, or I'd have to be at school earlier on TuTh and I'd have a 30 min break before Art History.  Here's the class description for PHIL 201:

"Provides an introduction to philosophy through the discussion of selected topics such as skepticism, perception, personal identity, free will and determinism, God."

So that's my dilemma at the moment.  Any thoughts? :)

In other news... I got 87.5% on my first Anthropology test!  I'm so happy because I was really worried about taking a test again since it's been about 4 years...  What a relief.

Hopefully on Thursday I get my test results for my first Religious Studies and Archaeology tests.

Happy Turkey Day everyone!  Enjoy lots of turkey, stuffing, and punkin pie! Mmmm mmmm good.
