I really need to. IS 12 midterm was nothing out of the ordinary, but IS 189 shocked the crap out of everyone.
Explain the perpetuation of international immigration through social capital & cumulative causation theory. Explain the flow of Bangladesh immigrants through networks.
Seriously. Apparently cumulative causation is something like “once immigration starts, it can’t stop.” But I thought it was all the reasons (social, economic, political) a person might want to immigrate for. FAIL FAIL FAIL. I am definitely changing my grade option for this class next Tuesday. No way am I taking this chance. I read everything for this class, EVERYTHING. But Sadiq told us what to study for… last Tuesday. WTF, homie. Whatever, midterms are over. I will now enjoy hot wings & BBF 10.
I had my EAP meeting yesterday with some of the other people who applied. Turns out they’re all Korean. As I sat through the meeting, I suddenly had the urge to extend my stay ’til the end of Fall semester. Tasha was talking about the extend form (which I had previously checked “no”) & I just thought, why not? The form doesn’t commit me to extending nor does it guarantee that there’ll be room for me to extend. But it gives me the OPTION to extend should I like Yonsei while there & makes the process much easier. I need a 3.0 if I want to stay for the Fall… I currently have a 0.0 GPA. So I gotta work my ass off this quarter & next quarter to ensure that happens. IS189 is worrying me so I’ll take care of that next week.
I know I still have to take a year of stats to graduate by June 2010 but I don’t know… the possibility of staying for an extra semester at Yonsei (I LOVE THE SEMESTER SYSTEM!!) just seems exciting. And if I really want to, I can always take Part A of my stats course this spring quarter & finish B & C during winter & spring when I come back. Uncle Huy can help me catch up by then. I can totally pass Stats10 with just C’s. I think the extra work is worth it. If Fall @ Yonsei doesn’t happen, then no biggie, I can sit in with 10A’s fall lectures to refresh my memory. I worry too much. But I want this to happen, so excessive worrying is acceptable.
I’m in a shopping kind of mood right now. Shopping solves all of m problems. I think I will invest in a Colonize hoodie this weekend. Good night for now!
