You Know, I Do Have a Brain

I hate my new school...the campus is creepy. And there's no A/C in the class. It's like a sauna in there. Seriously. And mind you, I work full time and leave work during the day to go to class, so I can't dress like all the full time students who attend class wearing shorts, flip flops, and tank tops. I'm in there in long pants, long sleeved button down shirts, and heels. I get out of there so irritated and hot and sweaty it's disgusting, and then I have to go back to work and attend meetings and give presentations looking like I just came from the gym.

And on top of that, being in the class is making me feel like I'm becoming more stupid. Today in class the professor told us that we don't have to know a formula because our calculator will do it for us. DO IT FOR US?! And you wonder why SAT scores keep going down every year with teachers thinking like that. I can feel my brain rotting.

Thank goodness I've decided to apply for a nutrition degree far far away from this school and get out of this major.

Timing is Everything

I've decided to apply for grad school in NYC. I'm applying for Fall of 2008. I've decided to go back to school to study nutrition and become a registered dietitian. Wish me luck! This is the hardest decision I have ever had to make...I will be leaving behind a secure job, a steady income, all my friends, my family, and everything I've known. But on the other hand, it is the sweet smell of moving on to new things...and that is ALWAYS a good thing. :) :)

Relief!

I had my bio final yesterday...I am so relieved to be done! What was supposed to be a three hour final turned into a five hour ordeal, and when I left the class, there were students in there *still* taking the test. Crazy. No undergrad final I'd ever taken compared to this. It was the worst test I'd taken, apart from the GMAT. The fact that it was LONGER than the GMAT is the scary part. At this point, if I get a C in the class, I'll be thrilled. I had an A going into the final, but since the exam is worth approximately 50% of our final grade, I'm not expecting much at this point. Maybe I'll get lucky and the teacher will have mercy and curve it, haha.

It feels strange coming home and not having reading to do or work for school to do. But it's nice! And I can finally start the last Harry Potter book...I had it shipped to my house the day it came out, but I forced myself not to read it because I knew if I did, I would never study or finishing my reading for the final exam in time. So, yay, I get to start it tonight.

Some of my girl friends wanted me to go out and celebrate the completion of my first class, but I'm too tired and wiped out from the exam yesterday and cumulative effects of the stresses of school to want to do much other than curl up with my Harry Potter book and read the night away. TGIF! :)
