s CM -• tt> Csl dm Summer's Over \ ghat's irighL Summer is definitely over and it's time to get ready for the Fall. The only problem is you're not ready. It was really nice. Those days when brushing your teeth was optional and waking up at noon, showering at 1:00 and watching Oinah noade you fed like you had really accomplished something. But now that's all over. Finished. Gone. Done. Out. Kimut! Capiche? The first joy you're going to face this sonester is registrati<m. Especially if you are lucky enough to fall into the late/c^n registration category. Let me summarize this novel concq)t 8:30 a.m.. big crowds. 9:00 • "A through B, anycxie with last luunes starting with A or B please head towards the front of the line." 9:45 • "Anyone else with their last names starting with A or B please come forward at this titne."«» 10:15 - "Okay, last chance. If you're an A or a B. come forwaid now." This speedy process continues until you get your nifty little registration fonn, and then, haiy do you feel nieciaL 12:30- destination-Division offices. 12:35 - stop to check out a wall map. 12:45 - still looking at the wall map and won¬ dering if it actually corresponds to the building you're in. 12:50 • reluctantly leave map shaking your head. 12:53 - pass by a long line that extends around the ccxner all the way to New Jersey. 12:54 - laugh at the poor souls who are in that line. 12:57 - after asking for assistance, you join the poor souls in New Jersey. 12:58 - begin the wait 1:37- becoming antsy. 2:07 - the line actually moves. 2:15 - count the gray hairs of the old guy standing right in front of you. 2:57 - 1,078 gray hairs. Wow! 3:15 • begin noticing distinct sweat patterns. 3:45 - finally, you reach "the table." 3:47 - "1013. . . section one?" "Qosed." "Section two?" "Closed" " Section 03?" "Qosed!" "Four?" "Closed!!" "12?!" "Closed!!!" "47!?!" "CLOSED!!!!" 3:51- leave line feeling totally dissed. head for the next office. Right about now you're prob¬ ably thinking. "No way, that can't be real.' Well, rest assured I was exaiggerating just a tinsy- winsy bit. You'll be lucky if things go that well. 4:00 - new line, new build¬ ing, new confidence. 5:03 - long line, sweat, diminished con¬ fidence. 5:35 - mission com¬ plete. But wait, did you want "Advanced Trigonometiy for non- degree seeking Biochemical Engineers"? Monday thru Friday? 7:35 am-3:15? Yuk! Too bad. You're already in the Convo in what could be consid¬ ered. I don't know, maybe, HELL! Time to pay the piper. If you receive financial aid, or a scholarship, or some type of supplemental income, forget about it Quit now. Otherwise, if your feet aren't numb and you haven't already passed out fi'om losing vital body fluids, onward. Now you can relax. Because it's a guarantee that you will be in line for several hours. You'll check your watch, think about sitting down for a minute, think about leaving, anything but wait¬ ing in the wretch«] line. Yet, you must. You've made it this far, don't give up! More importantly, you will lealize one very inoportant rule. If, and only if, you survive (^)en/late registration, you can ac¬ complish anything. Even getting through the Fall semester.
