Not much has been going on; I had both an uneventful weekend and, so far, an uneventful beginning to the week. I thought it would be a good idea to post something, however, so that there isn’t too big of a gap between posts.
By the end of today, I hope to at last have my fall semester schedule finalized, so that I can start off at UND with all of the classes I want. The university is currently in the process of switching the computer program that everybody must use to register for classes, so things are a bit messy right now. I assume all of my AP grades were sent to whomever is responsible for keeping track of them, but I have no way of actually knowing right now if that happened or not. Needles to say, I’m going to be contacting two departments – language (German) and mathematics – to find out how I can use my AP credits to bypass the entry level math and German courses I’m currently signed up for.
That means I will be in calculus II and German II. My AP score in German would allow me to take German III, but that will unfortunately not be possible due to a conflict in scheduling. The second-level chemistry class, of which there is only one section, meets at 11:00 AM, at exactly the same time as the only section of German III meets. As much as I’d like to take German III as a freshman, taking the chemistry class is much more important at this time.
In the something-I-should-have-done-last-year news, I’m going to get all four of my wisdom teeth taken out on Thursday afternoon. Not only is there not enough room in my mouth for them, but two of them are coming in crooked, so it’s something that really needs to be done before I leave Brainerd next month. Fortunately, though, I’m not going to end up having any problems with having the teeth get taken out a little bit later than I ideally should have.
I will be awake during the procedure, however. I went in last week and, after talking with the surgeon who will be doing the extractions, found out that my mouth is too small to be put to sleep without being hooked up to a respirator. If I wanted to get my teeth out and be asleep while it is being done, I would have to go to the hospital, which is something I would rather not do. Instead, I should be fine with some Novocain and nitrous oxide – “sleeping gas.”
