I'm wondering if I should change my major. Yes, it's only the second day of classes and I'm already considering that. Before I was considering being an Anthropology major if I were to go to GMU, but here I decided to go for English with a concentration in Creative Writing (quite a mouthful; I hate it when people ask because of that reason). But today in World History...the professor asked the class who was a History major? And like, only three people raised their hands. Which clearly gave the teacher the impression that the majority of the class was there for general requirements. This pissed me off. I desperately wanted to raise my hand too, to show that I cared, that I'm passionate about this subject. But no, I'm the English major. With a concentration in Creative Writing.
And the thing is, now that I'm sitting here already with a pile of English homework that I'm procrastinating on, I realize that if I go through with my major, then I'll be taking a lot of classes I find excruciating. On the other hand, if I were a History major, I'd be enjoying every minute of them.
...I could still be a writer with a History major, right? I mean...other than that, none of the careers I'm considering have that much to do with English. In fact one of those careers is that of a World History teacher. And it's not like I can't improve without taking a bazillion literature coarses. Maybe I should have History as a major and English-with-a-concentration-in-Creative-Writing as a minor, instead of the other way around? Which would be more benefitial to me?

Anyway, at the end of class I told the professor that World History is one of my favorite subjects and that I care, dammit. I participated in class a lot too, so I bet I left a good impression. :P
Statistics...I got there late. D: How embarrassing. But the Gosnold building is SO frickin confusing GAAAHHHHH. And the professor is just the WORST public speaker I have ever seen. I could teach better than that!! Half the time he sounds like he doesn't know what he's talking about......but at least the homework is easy. All we did today was make graphs.
