I signed up for this class because it sounded interesting. That and I need some social science credits. It was late in the day, but at the time I didn’t really pay attention to that. Honestly, those sort of things are not important to me.
So, I went to the first class and imagine to my surprise that the class is not what the syllabus says, not exactly. The class is a fieldwork exercise kind of like a graduate level class, where the students pick some topic dealling with the people of Japan, get their feet wet, talk to people, have experiences, and then write it up. It sounds like this class could be the most interesting, hardest class I have taken at the uni thus far.
At this point I don’t really know what I want to do for it. We can form into groups, so I think that I will come up with some ideas by friday, and if none of them are workable maybe I will just join up with someone else’s project.
I am really looking forward to starting on something–I dunno what yet though.
