American History and Art History to be exact. Oh! See what I did there?
So Saturday I got up earlier than usual (guess I won't be sleeping in at all this semester) and went to American Civilization, my History GE. The teacher seemed smart, not long winded as History professors are apt to be, (though he never got the chance) but I think I'm going to like him, he's funny, smart, nice, and more than a little bitter at his Adjunct Professor status. Class got out about an hour and a half early, but I had Art History next, so I stayed in the class room and read some of my homework.
Art History will be good as well. It's with the same teacher I took my first Art History class (ironically, it was the second Art History class). We're studying Art History from Pre-History to Pre-Renaissance, our first class covered the longest span of time, about 30,000 BC to 6,000 BC. We looked at cave paintings, fertility idols and Stonehenge. I really like this teacher, she's nice, she knows her stuff, and her tests are easy. What everyone wants in an Art History class.
I was worried I'd have trouble staying awake Saturday mornings, but my teachers seem intent on keeping me awake and interested, I'll let you know if they succeed as the semester progresses.
