I wish you all a wonderful, happy, very merry Christmas this year!! Let’s celebrate Christ and spread our love and kindness and good cheer. May your gifts be plentiful and full of joy.
Merry Christmas and a Happy lil’ ol’ New Year!! 😀
It’s so unbelievable it’s still sinking in. I took my last final exam on Friday and now I have nothing to do. Literally. It’s so awesome!!!! (It’ll stop being awesome in about a week, but for now it’s great. 😀 )
I have learned that college is hard, but if I pace myself and de-stress a little with pizza and an awesome family that I can totally make it through. 🙂 I have learned that after about two months of being there, I cannot pass a day without seeing someone I know. I have learned that I like tests, but I don’t like the deans of the different sub-thingies (math, sciences, etc.), who assign homework ALL THE TIME and before finals week, when I’m supposed to be studying. Like, do you even want me to succeed?
Anyway, I also learned that statistics is awful, chemistry is okay, biology is still my favorite science, racquetball is amazingly awesome and that I can’t stand liberal professors who incorporate politics into my classes. Ugh! 😉
The first half of the semester was a struggle, since I was trying to figure out how to cope with the whole thing, especially since I’d never done homework before in my life and I had to learn how to take tests. Once I had that all figured out, my grades started going up and my confidence levels did too. And although my classes are not all A’s, as I’d hoped, I feel confident that I can meet the 3.8 GPA requirement for med school. Continue reading “End of the Semester!!!!!”
Happy thanksgiving, everyone! I hope you have a wonderful day with your families and friends and a joyous season of thanks and giving.
Also, thanks to all of you who have stuck with me over the course of my blogging ups and downs. I know I haven’t been very consistent at all over the past six months and I appreciate your continued support.
Anyways, enough of that sappy stuff. 😉 Enjoy your time off and the wonderful gifts of love and friendship.
Well, to be more specific, college is crazy! 😉 Now that I’m about halfway through my first semester, the pressure is building to keep my grades up. I also have an added disadvantage that most freshman do very well without: since I’ve been homeschooled my whole life, I am used to processing information at my own pace and also learning straight out of a textbook and making my own conclusions. The fast pace of the lecture halls is telling a little, but I have hope that that is only a temporary “freshman” setback.
Anyways, life’s been a little crazy for the past two weeks. I got sick at the beginning of this crazy cycle and I missed a few classes, so I spent most of last week trying to catch up. I also have a chemistry exam tomorrow…..keep your fingers crossed for me!!! 🙂
But not for an instant do I regret coming to college or choosing this particular degree. I’m very, very happy in college, I’m learning tons of stuff and I am content knowing that this is what I was meant to do. Do I regret skipping my senior year of high school? No, except for the fact that I never took chemistry. Gosh, that would be useful now!!! 😀 Continue reading “Life is Crazy!!!”
Whew!! Yes, it’s true. My first college exams are over!! 🙂
In case you didn’t know (I don’t remember if I posted this or not) the pre-med course that I’m taking involves a lot of chemistry and biology, both of which are my major courses for this semester. I’m also taking a math class (statistics) and an Honors College intro course called Text and Critics (we read books and papers and critique them).
So I had my first biology exam last Friday and I passed it with an 85%, so I’m pretty happy with it. I also did my first Chem exam yesterday evening at eight in the evening (why the heck do they do exams in the evening when you’re tired?!?!?!) and I got a 76%, which is good considering both the fact that it was my first exam and I’ve never taken chemistry before.
So, yeah!!! 😀 I’m pretty happy with it and I’m looking forward to improving my scores over time. I jumpstarted the first few weeks, but tiredness and college wear-and-tear is finally catching up with me, so I know that if I can push through the next couple of weeks with improvements, then I’m good to go. Wish me luck, y’all!!! 🙂
I cannot promise regular posting, because I don’t know how much homework, if I’m in the mood, etc., but I’ll try.
Plus a few memes for you:
Keep smiling!! 🙂
A dog is there to be loved,
And love you back in return.
And comfort you in times of need.
No matter the color, no matter the breed,
Dogs are the same underneath;
They love you with those big, brown eyes,
No matter the hate, no matter the lies.
