Classes have begun!

Today was the first day of classes here at UFPr (that's Universidade Federal do Paraná, for those of you out there who don't know).
I am taking four classes. I think maybe only three will transfer, but really who cares? I wanna learn, I wanna read, I wanna hear and practice Portuguese... so what better way than to just take a bunch of classes. I was thinking about taking five classes, but as of yet I haven't found a class that is interesting that fits into my schedule.
Anway, I can't remember if I posted what classes I'm taking or not, so I'm gonna go ahead and do it again. I'll post them in a nice little format that makes it easy for everyone to read, that way you don't stress your brain too much.
To make things exciting for me, I went out and bought two little notebooks to use to write shit down in. You know, things like notes. I think there will be a lot of xeroxing and shit again this year, but I like it that way. Not as heavy as big books, although I will have to buy a few.
I had two classes today, and I have one tomorrow and then the fourth one on Wednesday. Anyway, here is my schedule. Once I've had each class at least once (and by that I mean, not just the introductory "let's just go over the syllabus since no one is here today", but an actual class).
So, here's my schedule.

That's it. I'll post interesting stuff from the classes as they go on. This semester should be very interesting and in a way, not nearly as challenging as last semester, and in another way, much more challenging.
