This morning I had to wake up at 4:45AM so that I could call and tel-reg(ister) for fall classes. I let John use the phone first since I was choosing three lecture classes -- ones which don't really have limits.
John registered and then I spent about twenty minutes pushing redial, hanging up, pushing redial, hanging up until I finally got through only to wait on hold for fifteen additional minutes.
When I got through, I wasn't able to register for my COM (Communications) class since it was full. I tried every CM331 class, but only one from 9:30-11AM on Tuesday and Thursday was available. I was so pissed. I had my
schedule completely planned out to only have class on Monday/Wednesday/Friday, but now I have to wake
up early every day... I don't see how high school kids do it.
At 11AM today, I had an interview for a peer advising volunteer position in COM (same abbreviation, but now for BU's College of Communication). I wasn't really nervous, but it was two current peer advisors and the director of Freshman Orientation all interviewing me. I think I did pretty well except for when one of the peer advisors asked "Here's a hypothetical situation: What would you do if one of your advisees asked you where to get a fake I.D.?"
I had no clue. All I could think of was "I would tell him 'Huntington Street'." or "I would tell him that he shouldn't drink." and I knew both of those weren't the "right" answer. Telling the advisee where to get
an i.d. definitely wasn't the right course and telling the advisee not to drink seemed a little naive. So I explained that I would tell him that he shouldn't drink, but if he'd already thought about it and wanted to get an i.d., I didn't think there was much I could realistically do. I also added that if someone wanted an i.d., he/she wouldn't have to ask me where to get one, they're rampant on-campus and even advertised in
So, I goofed on that question (and I'm still not sure exactly what the correct answer was.)
In other news, tonight I really don't know what I'm going to do. Probably not much, once again. I think I may actually do my history homework since the teaching assistant threatened a quiz last week when no one had done the required reading.
Sorry that my writing is weirdly worded... I haven't a clue why it is.
