More observations on AU vs. S&T. It’s funny because today my dad asked what differences I have noticed between schools and I was like, “Oh I have a blog on that!”
1) There are a LOT of guys on S&T campus [ but I don’t want any of them- no fear Ryan ;) ]
2) You don’t have to watch out for frisbees flying at you while walking on campus at S&T.
3) I feel like I’m surrounded by crazy smart science people at S&T…probably because I am. Obviously it’s an engineering/science school so my major is definitely not the minority. As opposed to AU, there are not many bio majors, or science majors in general. There’s more of a mixture of majors.
Today I finally got my schedule figured out and final. I’ve filled out an add/drop form twice. Really annoying, plus only a partial refund on classes I’ve dropped (rip off). I’m taking: Cell Biology & lab, Microbiology & lab, Perspectives in Education, and an online Intro to Philosophy class. Today I dropped this Psych class (Sensation & Perception) and signed up for the Philosophy class instead. I will actually need Philosophy, whereas Psych was only to fill in hours. I am interested in Psych, but now that I want to major in Biology & Education- I won’t have time for Psych too. I think Philosophy will be hard though. Oh well. My ed class is probably the easiest class I’ll ever take.
So now I only have 2 classes everyday besides Fridays, of which I have 3 classes. Speaking of Friday, I can’t believe tomorrow is Friday already! YAY!
Random side note– I think Airborne really works. I had a sore throat one day last week so I took airborne once a day for three days in a row and I ended up with a very minor cold. If I would not had taken it, I would’ve had a regular annoying cold. This has happened before too. Just don’t take more than one in a day because you’ll get too much vitamin A or C, or both, I can’t remember.
Well I’ve been blogging on Xanga but I discovered Blogspot and decided I might like it better. We’ll see how it goes. I start at Missouri S&T in a week! I took this past semester off (wasn’t in my plans, but God’s) and now I am transferring to S&T from AU. However, I hope to return to AU if things go well at home within the next year or so. I am majoring in biology, but after substitute teaching this semester I think I might add a secondary education major to that. But then get certified for elementary because I don’t want to teach middle or high school. It’s just the easiest way to go so I can still major in Biology. Otherwise I would be double majoring in El Ed and Biology. Biology & Secondary Ed are complementary majors. I’m not for sure if I want to teach!! But this is my plan for now. I also want to do something with nutrition and psychology, but I don’t know how that will work out. Hmm. Anyway, this upcoming semester I am taking Microbiology, Cell Biology, Educ 40 (it’s the first Ed class), and then another class that I’m not for sure on yet. I’m very nervous!! First off, I won’t know anyone and I’m really shy; not a good combination. Also, it will probably consume my life just like last year. I’m also afraid of how I will handle/balance the stress of school and the issues at home with my dad. Yikes. Ready or not, it will be here in a week.
