No. But I do need to graduate with a 3.0 to qualify for the grad school I want to get into. And an F ain't gonna help. I'm at a 2.95 right now without the F.

Not quite the same boat as you guys, but I got two years of postdoctoral research funding yesterday. So that will be 9-10 years at university now.

9-10 years? I think I am going to be sick!

I feel 2% less stressed since presenting yesterday. I will find out how I did on both that and the paper Tuesday.

For math, we can sit for another final on Tuesday. My professor told me "I expect to see you next Tuesday", but f that! Then I would have three finals that day! Not to mention I think my music final is due that day too, so four finals! Hell no!

Does anyone else still have homework? I have to do these three chapter/personal summaries for psych, going to try to do them today/tomorrow so I can relax.

When I first started college, I remember finishing my first term and thinking "Okay, that's one down.  Still got a long ways to go, but we're on the road.  Just gotta keep on keeping on."

Then I woke up.  It was a dream!  I was actually only about a month in.  What the hell, brain?  What are you doing to me?  That feeling of satisfaction, I hadn't earned it yet!

But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that the attitude I'd adopted in my dream was the correct one.  Keep your eyes on the road and just keep going, doing the best you can.  This is what you do right now.  When you're done, you will do something else.  That's how it works.

So that will be 9-10 years at university now.

By May of 2013, I will have had 7 years of undergrad. That's 2 years community college, 2 years film school, 1 year pre-med, 1 year chem major and then 1 year pre-pharmarcy. Let's just say it took me a little longer then most people to figure out what on earth I was going to do with my life.

But thank god Pharmacy school starts in the fall. So then 3 years of classroom and 1 year of interning.

So the grand total will be 11 years of college for me, finally finishing in 2017 with a Bachelors in Film and Doctorate in Pharmacy.

Dude let's team up and make a movie. Maybe a horror film about pharmaceuticals gone wrong. Like maybe there is a mystery prescription drug going around that turns people into flesh eating animals. It could be called FARMaceuticals or something.




This is why I am paying for a film degree.
I felt its length in quite a few places.

I heard that school lacks chemistry professors who like Dream Theater.  That's got to be a huge minus.

^Happy to see another student on the quarter system.
Aside from classes being condensed, I love the quarter system so much.

Verily, the quarter system kicks serious ass.  I particularly enjoy not having to take 5 classes at once.

Straight up failed my biochem final. I have no doubt I got an F in the class.

 :-\ Will this affect your graduation?
No. But I do need to graduate with a 3.0 to qualify for the grad school I want to get into. And an F ain't gonna help. I'm at a 2.95 right now without the F.

Best of luck. I shall file a prayer to the chemistry gods that the curve be in your favor.

As for me, I've got one final left. Physics. Blech

Still beating my exams with a crowbar. I ended up with a solid B in piano class, a B in Psych, and I got a 94% on a music history exam that will leave me with a B because that class is harder than shit. Only class I'm waiting to hear back on is Theory now, and I'm fairly confident in that one because the exam was take-home and I had hours upon hours to go through it with a fine-toothed comb to make sure everything was perfect.

Feels good, man.

Aced my speech class final, pretty sure I bombed my computer programming final, and if I did, I might fail, making this second attempt pointless, since my D from last time will still be better.  So there's $800 down the drain, and since I still live with my parents, I get to directly deal with them being disappointed in me.  It's really fucking awesome.  Really awesome.

Thanks. BTW I'm not chemistry anymore. I'm doing philosophy for my major. My heart is not in chem. At all. Though I rocked it when I cared and actually studied for it. :lol

Good luck with physics. Just put the equations together and BS it. That usually works for me.

Awesome, dude.

And I surprisingly felt OK about my O-chem final. I think I passed. Science classes are now officially behind me for good. I'm a little sad about it. Maybe I'll return to it for pleasure someday.

Had my last final this morning. It was setup so each person answered one question, and the class got one grade on the test. As such, I got a 195/200.

I have 14k words due in on January 7th... I've done approx 6k so far. All needing tidying up. So my Xmas break is going to be spent writing essays and reading!

And this is just the first semester!
