Default First week and a half of college.

God, it's been hard.

For those that don't know, I'm at the Milwaukee School of Engineering. It's known for being hard. After the first week, my calc class was already down to half its original size, and I know for a fact at least one hundered freshmen have already dropped (they turn their laptops into the tech department where I work when they leave since the school provides them the laptops).

With the exception of the minimum of 2 hours of homework each night (1.5 is just math) It's fun though. Everyone I work with, and everyone on my dorm floor is pretty cool. It helps too that my girlfriend lives pretty close (like one mile away) so we can get together often enough even if it's just to do homework with each other.

So for all you other people in college now, how's it treating you?

I'm not in college but I'm learning Accountancy right now and I work 40 hours a week, its hard work because I'm really tired to go out at night.

Owch, That's gotta suck. I think I know what that feels like, but I have yet to hit the forty hours a week of work (thankfully).

I'd take 40 hours of work a week over what I'm doing anyday, and yes I have spent time working 40 hours a week.

4th or 5th week of high school. Although you could say it's half college. I'm taking for AP classes lol. AP Chem and Physics are piece of cake. AP US History is a bit hard, I always get C on the essays and tests, but because it counts as total points and it's not weighted I'm doing ok. I have an 87. Lastly AP Calculus. Geez this class started hard. Since I never took pre-calc, I got Ds on the first 2 homework assignments and then a 55 on a quiz a week later. When test came around though I did pretty well: 90.1. Luckily tests are 65%, homeowrk 15%, and quizzes 20%. I just need another quiz and my grade should go up from a current 83.
