Okay...  
Does someone want to tell me what the hell was I thinkining when I signed up for Introduction to Astrophysics? Hmm? So, maybe it is taught by a professor I've had before, who is very good at making complex astronomical concepts make sense. Maybe I do need one more science credit to graduate, and this was the only astronomy-related course I haven't taken yet. Maybe I am fascinated by the concepts (if not the math) behind stellar evolution.

But you should see this text book! The long, abysmal equations. The too-long charts and too-short explanations. The greek letters! X_X;;;

I can only conclude that I was, in fact, possessed at the time of registration.
Help.

I think everyone has had that why-did-I-agree-to-this feeling on the first day of classes before. I do definitely think you'll be just fine, though. :)
(And, worse case scenario, you can do what I did when astronomy was threatening to kick my ass last semester: just make lots of Stargate jokes in your head and wait for it to be over.)

*hugs* I hope the first day of classes is treating you kindly, this textbook aside.

You have such faith in me, dearie. I appreciate it so much, you know. ^_^

Stargate jokes are good! And also little stick-figure Malcolms sending hearts towards stick-figure Simons and, in the next pannel, being chased off by a stick-figure River. ^^;

*hugs back*

Is it bad that I'm sitting here thinking "I wish I could take it with you, Meredith!" because I'm sad I never managed to take Intro to Astrophysics in college?
We could totally study together and I could help you with the nasty math...

Good luck! If the prof is good hopefully it'll be awesome and hopefully your college has office hours or something so you can get help when it gets nasty.

Zixi, it would be awesome if we could take it together. There are few people I'd trust to watch my back in a battle against The Evil Math, but you're definitely one of them! We'd probably tear a hole in reality with our meddling. ^_^
