Originally, I planned to take a break from taking more classes until next year, and then Tron Mai stepped up to take over Rad Sechrist's story class after Rad moves to Nor Cal. I can't seem to decide now and early reg is happening soon... argh...

Pros:
IT'S TRON FREAKING MAI. HE'S AWESOME.
No, really, he's awesome. I have proof of his awesome. He came on the last day of the story class and gave critiques, a brief lecture about his process, and his plans for this class. Tron wants to focus on each individual student's needs and help them get the foundations of a portfolio. He also wants to help create characters and help lead characters into a story. So awesome!
He would be my oasis of intelligent sanity because I know I'm going to be wading through some crap at the end of the year.
Have I mentioned he's Tron freakin' Mai?

Cons:
I've been taking classes all year, not to mention last year. This summer was insane as well, a load of work came my way and I had to balance taking two classes on top of that. It's pretty much time for a break.
Fall/winter gets really busy for me, family wise. First, it's everyone's birthday, and then it's Chusuk, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's in that order. Being the oldest being with estrogen, I'm forced to help out... a lot.
Work wise... yeah, all the deadlines are tight and are going to be the fall/winter season. -_-
I'm not sure if I can keep up with the homework with everything going on. :/

...it's still Tron Mai though... I really want to take the class... but I'm not sure if I'd be able to keep up... T_T

Are you able to audit the class?

It's not that kind of class/school, it's pretty much either you take it or you don't. The homework isn't mandatory but I'd want to do it because 1) it'd make my work improve and 2) it would impress Tron Freaking Mai. XD

Does Tron Freaking Mai give another class, perhaps next year when you'd be a bit less swamped?

Anyway, the main issue seems to be whether the awesomeness of being in the class will give you the energy you need to get through it--or whether it will just overwhelm you and cause you to feel insane amounts of pressure. I can't answer that for you. But I would try to visualize each situation as well as you can and listen very carefully to what your body tells you. How do you feel in each scenario? In the TFM class, is it a manic or calm energy you feel as you work? If you don't take the class, are you disappointed and depressed, or secretly relieved?
