So, yeah, this is not complete yet, I'll update once I've met all of my professors. Still, going to work on a rundown of them - mostly because I feel like it and this journal should have more than my occasional research and writer's block rants in terms of non-story posts. :)

Construction of Race and Ethnicity: Upper-level sociology class, taken to get me one step closer to finishing my soc minor (yeah, broadcast journalism major plus minors in soc and political science, that might have been a crazy idea...). I wanted Sociology of Religion as I've already taken a soc course on race for one of my core requirements, but it was closed. So there's this instead. It seems like it could be interesting, and I think I like the prof well enough, though I'm reserving final judgment.

Journalism Research: This prof I like. He wore a Magna Carta tie, and when I asked if it was the tie or the history, he informed me that he wears "interesting" ties. Also, he sympathized with having a family name and needing, therefore, to be very specific about one is called to avoid feeling like you're some other family member. (Note to teachers; my aunt is Kathy, I'm Kate. Thank you. Have an nice day.) The class is mostly about research (no, really?) but what I think is going to happen is that we're going to learn about ways to search on the Web that not everyone knows. *evil smile* Is it bad that my mind immediately went to how useful this could be for fic?

American Political System: Babyface! This was my first thought, because my prof looks like he could pass for a student. Reminds me of the one priest we got in my senior year of high school who had us all confused when we first saw him. "Is he a seminary student?" He was about 30 as I recall. Don't know how old the poli sci prof is. This class does a joint fill; it's required for journalism majors and helps me with my poli sci minor. He seems nice enough, though maybe a little scatterbrained. However, he purposely didn't order in our class text to the bookstore because he knows they overcharge and wants us to save money online. I kind of like that attitude. Also, he wore a tie and a suit jacket (with an appropriate shirt) with jeans. Fandom thoughts struck again as I pictured Inception's fanon!Arthur reacting to such a combination.

Design For Journalists: We had a sub for the lab portion this week. She seems nice enough, and with any luck the actual lab instructor will be too. I'm just glad I don't have to worry about group work with this class, unlike Audio/Visual for Journalists (last semester; be glad I wasn't using this as a proper blog then or else there would have been much ranting). Will report back on the lecturer tomorrow and the actual lab instructor next week.

Human Sexuality: I can hear the commentary from over here guys, don't judge me. It was basically the only interesting looking class out of a list for one of the core sections. I have this later today, I'll report back on it tomorrow along with my impressions of the Design lecturer. Again, fandom note; I desperately want to use some things I've seen in various fandoms for this class, especially the Inception Kink Meme. It's a sociology course, it could work...

OK, so, I keep seeing meta posts for various fandoms, but I have never done one. So here's my first try, for Inception - specifically on Arthur, everyone's favorite point man.

What does a point man do? )

Title: A Sense of Feeling
Fandom: Inception
Pairing: Ariadne/Arthur/Eames
Series: Three Is More Than Just Company
Disclaimer: Did we see these three walk off together at the end of the film? No. So it is not mine.
Summary: "I am a great believer in found families and I'm not a great believer in blood... I've always felt that the people who treated you with respect and included you in their lives were your family and the people who were related to you by blood might happen to be those people but that correlation was a lot less strong than society believes it is." - Joss Whedon
Author's Note: Just as an aside, Eames' nephew in this fic is, in my mind, played by the boy cast as Eustace in the newest Narnia film. :)

 

Remind me of what I am... )
