Yesterday I bought a new planner for this year; it has a beautiful cover with the sentence “Being Normal is Boring” (it’s in the featured image). It felt right for me, considering that I have never been and will never be “normal”, whatever that means.
That evening I had my first real class of this semester: basic processes. It was mostly about the origins of psychology, but in the end the teacher also talked about some cognitive processes or functions, such as memory, attention, perception, etc. It was really interesting, and I think I’m going to love that subject.
When I came back home it was almost 10 p.m., and all my family was having dinner. I joined them and we chatted for a while. Then we all went to my parents’s room to watch Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix before going to bed.
This evening I’ll have a class called Introduction to Social Interaction and Small Groups. When I told my parents about it they giggled and commented I could certainly do with some lessons on social interaction. They love making fun of my issues. Fortunately, now I’m mature enough to laugh with them.
On other news: I finally finished all the paperwork for the 25% scholarship/discount in my new course of studies! My dad is very happy about that. And now I can move on to my next paperwork-related goal: getting the university to acknowledge the fact that I have already passed philosophy, ethics, theology, English and introduction to the sciences in my previous course of studies, and henceforth should not have to do it again for this one. I hope I can get that done this week.
