On Monday afternoon, I had Scottish Pirates and Privateers. I’m not going to lie; I figured a class on pirates wasn’t going to be all that difficult, but it turns out it’s probably going to be one of the hardest classes I’ll take in college. At least it’s interesting material; I mean who doesn’t want to read about pirates, so I don’t mind doing the work – right now anyway.
I had my second class on Wednesday, Melanesian Anthropology. Supposedly it’s going to revolutionize the way I think about anthropology – thank god. Most of the anthropologists who studied Melanesia lived in 1900 so trying to decipher their century old intellectual lingo wasn’t exactly appealing. Hopefully this class is the anthropological revolution that the professor promised.
I officially applied to become and Asian Studies major on Friday. I was originally an Anthropology major but Anthro and I haven’t been vibing too well lately so I think the change was necessary. Now I’m an Asian Studies major, taking classes in Medieval History and Anthropology in the middle of Scotland. It all fits together so well.
Attempted to get out on the Old Course on Friday morning, but frost on the ground halted that venture. We ended up playing 9 holes on the Eden – the third time this week I have been on that course. I can’t complain though, I’m still playing golf in the middle of February. A little frost here and there isn’t the worst thing in the world. The days are getting longer and its been much warmer lately, so hopefully I can get on the Old next week.
