Default Fall 2014 Semester Thread!

I know these kind of trickled off last year, but I'd like to get them going again! It was great to hear everyone's accomplishments and try to help if someone was struggling.

I'm at my 4-year University now! WHOO! I'm in Ecology & Evolution and Nature & Society.

Just finished up two exams last week. Got 91% in Bio and 87% (class average was 65%!), so I feel pretty good about that.

Currently working on a reflection essay on deextinction, I have a report due on a local oil spill tomorrow, and a quiz and interactive chapter due later this week.

How about the rest of the high school and college crowd?

I'm in GED classes.

We're learning how to add.

Good job meepitsmeagan!!!

I'm in Differential Functions (Calc 4), Labratory Analysis, and Electricity.

Lab Analysis and Electricity are going well so far, but I'm struggling horribly with my social anxiety in Calc 4. It's going to be a really rough semester for me unfortunately.

Is it a large lecture hall? I'm soooooooo glad those days are behind me. My anxiety went seriously out of control bc of them.

A mix between last semester and my current family dynamics has pretty much crushed my will to live. I'm getting subpar grades for my standards and I can't seem to care. I'm still above average so I'm just like "meh" where as the real me would be flipping out right now.

I just keep repeating dori from nemo "just keep swimming, just keep swimming."

Hopefully I can get back on my game soon. I'm moving myself to CT over the next couple of months so that Long Island becomes more of a place I just crash for school and less my home. I think that should help my psyche and maybe I can get my over-achieving self back?

I'm in....year 5 of a 4 year degree -_-

This semester I've got:
Health Finance - Online,
Issues in Women's Health - Online (better named Issues in Women's MENTAL health, because there's been more ranting about the media than anything else so far),
Research Applications - my one course on campus.

I feel like I'm so drained from so many years of school that I am not doing as well as I potentially could. I mean, I'm passing, but I don't feel like I'm absorbing anything.

I just graduated from my four year degree, and now I'm doing a college course to narrow my focus a bit (since my undergrad is pretty broad). I'm doing law enforcement and border security stuffs. It's a lot more interesting than Romantic-era prose. This program will be two years. I'm pretty pumped to be done with school, but so far this program has been pretty neat!

I just started going back to school this fall to get a second bachelors in computer science I'm only taking two classes each term for the first year so I can be considered a resident for the rest of my time (yay in-state tuition!) So for the fall term I have Calc 1 and Intro to Computer Science.

I actually really like calculus so far. I tried to take it the first time I went to college and just barely passed. My previous teacher was a really smart guy but not very good at explaining things, but my new teacher is great and I'm actually understanding things so far this time around! My compsci class is a little boring, but that's because we're going over stuff I already know right now. I know I'll find it more interesting once we get to new stuff.

I kind of wish I was kidding with the GED thing. We seriously were going over adding and subtracting the first few weeks.

I'm scoring the highest possible on the math tests right now, so I'm not too concerned. A couple of things that I'll go over myself independently and I should be ready!

I am wanting to go back to school after this for dental hygiene. Two year degree.

So interesting to read about all the courses you guys have.

I just started my Masters degree in September in Art History. So far it's been brutal.

200 pages of philosophy, history or theory to read per seminar. Thankfully instead of 3 or 4 seminars I'm only taking 2 because I also work on top of school. Still struggling to complete my 400 pages a week for the most part though I don't want to be a student anymore!
