Okay, well, UF has granted my wish... in my LAST SEMESTER. Thanks, guys. *sarcasm*

What I mean is, they've started offering beginner language courses in the spring, not just the fall. This is great, but what it means is that I now have six available languages, all of which I've long wanted to learn, and room for only three, a max of four. Help! The four I really want are French, German, Latin, and Greek, but American Sign Language is also being offered - when will I ever get that chance again?! - and then of course there's Spanish. I know I'm taking it this semester, but I'm afraid that if I start more languages, I'll lose Spanish again, and I really don't want to do that. I want to do the 3301 class, companion to the one I did in my first semester. But if I did all 6, it would be 25 credits, and that's way too many. The limit is supposed to be 18. Dropping Latin out of the mix, I might be able to get them to approve 21 - read, MIGHT - but no more than that.

And we haven't even started talking about Senior Thesis, Gymnastics, Weight Training, Writing Systems, Intro to Morphology, or any of the other factors that are coming into play here.


If anybody can help me make some choices here... please do.
