First Class

Had my first class of winter quarter this afternoon. Interface Design with Professor Schull. Should be an interesting class... more of the same from Human Factors, except a lot more implementation, which is cool. One thing the professor said today that got me thinking is that we("RIT Students"? "This class"? "The IT Department"?) have a lot of touch-screen technology available to us. I never heard that before. Although, I'm sure there's a lot I never heard of before.... I was surprised at the way he dropped the information so casually.

This is going to be a MAJOR group project class. 65% of our grade hinges on group projects. And when I found this out, my old "working in groups" fear jumped out at me, and my heart started racing. What is that about? It's not that I think I'm not going to do well in a group situation. It's not that I'm not going to be able to rely on others in the class(turns out I've either worked on a project with or been in class with at least %50 of the class!! Very rare). It's this innate feeling of "what if no one will want to be in a group with me?" and "what if everyone hates me?". :-P So extremely strange, I don't know how to begin to explain it completely. It's just one of those things that I don't want to have to deal with. And when he never really says how the groups are going to be decided on, that makes me more nervous. Oh well.

I was going to say something else, but I forget what it was.
