My history courses are coming to a close, and I have done nothing but writing, writing, writing. I didn’t take my kids to swim lessons this week, I have done little organic chemistry, and I will be so glad when I have these three papers completed. I’ve decided to take the next month off from my history degree. I’m low on tuition money, so at least I will have time to save up. I think that it will be a nice break since I have had one since I started my graduate degree. I have not studied anymore for the MCAT this week. Work has been so busy also. We’ve had a lot of sad things happen in the ER.
Organic chemistry is going well. I have another test coming up on Thursday. For the last test, the scores ranged from a 43 to a 98. The girl who got the 98 didn’t study at all! I wish that I could be like that. I love chemistry lab, and I love my teacher. She gives us so much confidence in what we are doing and doesn’t treat us like we are stupid. She says that we are already her collegues and that the skills that we learn in the lab will help us in our future careers. I also love the microglass kits. Who knew chemistry could be so cool?
Notetaking has been going fine. I’ve certainly got into the swing of things, and it will be nice to get a paycheck at the end of the semester! I started two new clubs at my college: the International Studies Club and the Math and Science Society. My sister was the president of the Math and Science Society two years ago, and my brother was in the International Studies Club and went to Europe last spring. I’m going to run for treasurer of the Math and Science Society and president of the International Studies Club. The meetings align perfectly in my schedule which is great. I wish that I would have joined more clubs when I was younger since it has been nice to get more social interaction with school peers. The International Studies Club plans on going to New York this spring to see the 9/11 Memorial which I feel is worth visiting at least once in a life time.
D1 has been so funny and sweet lately. D2 is so handsome and likes to dress up all the time, and D3 started walking! D3 has also started letting me put bows in her hair, which I love doing. She looks so pretty! Daycare has been going fine, and D1 is doing well in the school there.
I’ve been asking around to see if anyone would be interested in becoming a faculty advisor for the pre-health club that I’ve been trying to initiate. So far, I don’t have any bites. This is kind of dissapointing especially from the nursing department which is the area that could most benefit from having students better informed about going into the health care field. I will keep trying, however.
