God I hate it here.
This isn't what I wanted, nor expected from studying abroad. I feel like I'm going to be wasting a whole semester's worth of learning by being here. I know it's only the first week and things will probably pick up once we get real assignments, but right now my days are being filled with short presentations and nothing else. I go to class at 10am... and we're done by 10:40am. Everyone just sits in the classroom and does their own thing, but since I have nothing else to do, I go back to my room until my next class at 2pm. Which will probably be just as short. I'm not doing ANYTHING useful. The only assignments we've got so far are presentations on two artists and a presentation on what influences us. We basically put together a slideshow. So boring! I want to go back to Pratt right now and learn things that are USEFUL to me and things that I WANT to be learning. I hate this! I hate this!!!!!
I also got a pay-as-you-go phone yesterday... I get free texts (yes, even internationally) so PLEASE. Text me. My number is 07503039973. According to my mom you'll need to type this in (for internationals): 011 44 750 303 9973.
