Besides the fact that I'm set to graduate in May, my overwhelmed feelings are of the present.
I know I was somewhat cocky during winter break about my four science courses this semester. Truth is, I'm completely freaking out. Most specifically, O Chem is going to be incredibly challenging. My posts might become a little less frequent, since I'll be focusing on getting through these courses.
We dived right back into material on Friday and I don't recognize all of the terms that Dr. Green was discussing. I guess the nice thing is how all of the students in the course say how awesome Dr. Green is. So, I need to go chat with him, like every day. I don't think just reading the book is going to catch me up on the game.
My evolution course is being taught by a woman from Prague. Her accent is incredibly heavy, so I will have to pay 100% attention to try to learn everything. I really would like to get an A this time around. I also would love to get an A in my intro to bio course. Both of these will help my GPA so much.
My intro to conservation biology course only has 10 students in it. We have a 20 minute presentation later in the semester. I think that sounds like fun because we get to research an organism that has a recovery plan in store. I'm hoping to pick something that is related to the marine systems.
I think part of my other feelings come from that my wedding planning. Since these four courses are going to be taking over my life, I have to put a lot of my planning on hold.
