Probably Cultural Anthropology II. It's really annoying trying to remember all the different Native American and Asian tribes that are federally recognized. It's different from the European practice of basically lumping everybody into a select few groups.

The hardest class I'm taking right now is one called ''Steel Structures'' (name translated), which is basically a lot of maths, thinking and physics. Gotta calculate all of a building's structure, every single column, beam, decking and etc. It can be a real pain in the ass and it's a long process to do too. You easily get lot in your calculations which has happened to me several times. I'm currently failing this class, but I can still manage to get my grades up. I at least passed my last exam.

That sounds extremely time consuming and hard!

Its funny, a lot of Linguistics students tell me that Japanese (one of the languages I'm taking) and Spanish are really similar to each other and I just don't see it. For one thing, I dislike any language that pays attention so much to masculine and feminine nouns. That's why German was so hard for me. I can understand why things like die Frau or der Mann have their respectable gender nouns, but why is something like der Wagen male? I had the same problem with Spanish, too much frustration.

They are right in the fact that both Spanish and Japanese use the "rolling r" sound rather than saying it like "aaahheerr". Some sentence structures are eerily similar too. Anything else I fail to see similar lol.

And don't forget about "das" :P Why can't things that are obviously male and things that are obviously female me marked with gendered nouns, with everything else being the third one. It would make my life so much easier.

Yeah, nearly all languages that have gender nouns don't have a "neutral" noun either. I guess Germans like to make things really complicated, lol.

And could somebody tell me why a skirt is considered a male object, while hiking boots are considered a female object?

As a Spanish speaker, German has actually confused me some times too. Some male words in Spanish are changed to female in German, and vice versa. Then there's neutral, something that doesn't exist in Spanish...
Look, look with your special eyes...

I think German is the only major non-Romance language that has neutral nouns. Some people have told me that it makes the organization of nouns more interesting (like how certain objects don't have a gender because they're inanimate), but this rule is largely ignored. You can actually say "das Wagen" in some regions like Berlin, but like everything else it's not recommended.

It's not like Japanese where there's only honorific male/female titles, like "-san" for neutral; "-kun" for young male; "-chan" for young woman, etc.
