Schedule Sudoku

Sometimes I feel like planning my schedule is like playing a game of sudoku.  Yeah.  I know that makes me sound like a nerd.  Lately I've been addicted to it, playing on my phone in between classes to kill time.  And tonight, as I was planning my schedule for fall semester, I started feeling like I was playing it again.  If I put a 9 here then I can't put a 9 there...if I take Intro to Elementary Ed at 9:00 then I can't take English 2010 at 9:00.  I'm like to use the little notes feature when I play on my phone to mark down my options of what it could be.  That's kinda how all my post it notes are working.  I wrote down all possible times I could take the class...and am slowly eliminating choices.  I like my classes being right after one another.  Well...I guess I haven't had it any differently.  I'm pro at planning them like that.  This semester may be a little more difficult...although I think I've figured it out!  But it totally depends on how the classes fill up.  Maybe other people will mess up my awesome planning.  I hope not.  Or maybe meeting with an advisor on Friday will change my views on what I should take...but I doubt it.  I'm looking at potentially 18 credits...which sounds a bit crazy to me.  But I bet I can do it.  

Here are the potential classes:
  • English 2010 - have to take it matter what...might as well get it over with
  • FCHD 1500 - Human Development Across the Lifespan.  Required for ElEd.  And a bunch of other really no harm in taking it
  • ELED 1010 - Orientation to Elementary Education.  Also required for ElEd...go figure.  Hopefully I can decide for sure if I want to be a teacher or not
  • PHYS 1200 - Physics.  Required for ElEd too.  Sounds like death.
  • CS 1400 - it's a computer class.  Hopefully it won't be as disappointing as my last computer class.  It's a venue I've wanted to explore...and my last few classes have been discouraging because of teachers who don't teach.  I'm hoping this will be different.  I'm hoping I'll learn something, anything new.
  • And then I want to take some sort of PE class.  Nothing too intense...just something fun
It'll be intense.  It'll be busy.  But a busy life is much better than a dull one!  I guess I'll just have to wait until the end of August when school starts up again to see how things play out :)


  1. i would say 18 credit hours isn't bad. but...I don't recommend physics and Human Development together. unless you have a really easy teacher in one course. English 2010 is amazing.

  2. Thanks for the input Kayli! I'll have to check out the teachers and talk to some friends who have taken classes from them :)

  3. I am in the same boat! I just went in for advisement today and there are soooo many options! IT's crazy! Good Luck! I am sure it will all workout for you!
