(a) Screenwriting, which is full of funny people and some people who are not always so funny but have not yet killed me for poking fun at them. Also, watching of movies and critiquing other people's work. I get stressed when it is my own work being presented, but I love critiquing other's stuff. At least in screenwriting. In poetry it was occasionally painful and dull because there'd be a poem I did not understand at ALL, and in fiction there were some stories that made me die a little inside (there's always ONE person in the class whose work invariably makes you go "bwuh?"), but generally group critiques are fun. The professor has not told me to shut up yet, so I consider that a plus.
(b) Senior Seminar, which I have with the prof I had for Principles of Management, and while he annoyed me then I am now used to his brand of madness. Also he does not fail me for sassing him constantly, which is rather nice of him. And I sit next to one of the Matts, who I have taken to calling Dorkface, and we pretend to flirt. It is fun.
(c) Irish Film & Lit, with Dr. Lowery, who is awesome. This is where I get to be snarky with some very cool people who are older than me in terms of decades (I like to remind them that I'm 23 and giggle at their withering looks of HATE), Adorable Tiny Irish Girl, and Andrew, who always wears red socks and who I annoy relentlessly because I think he is adorable and I am seven. Also, we get to watch movies of people with Irish accents for a good 75%-90% of class time. What's not to love?
