- Organic chemistry is difficult. Even when you actually do understand the concepts. And it just doesn’t appear that way. (Example: resonance structures.)
- Everything is reading intensive. Biology? Reading intensive. Organic chemistry? Reading intensive. Psychology? Somewhat reading intensive.
- That my biology lab is pretty good this term. All the teaching staff (TA, lab coordinator, assorted profs that are associated with my class) are so, so, so helpful. I like them all, and it’s only been the first lab!
- The wireless internet signal is absolute crap on the lower basement level. Moving up just one floor (to the first basement level) in the library boosts it up in no time.
- A lot more people post on online discussions for 200-level science courses than they did for 100-level science courses. Including me.
- Profs are a lot more dedicated to what they’re teaching in 200-level science classes. One of my profs? He’ll answer questions way after traditional office hours – he posted a reply at 2am!
- Keeping up on doing notes for all classes is hard. (And I’ve already cut back on basically all television time to make room for doing notes and reviewing.)
The plan for the next few days is:
- Reviewing resonance structures (for organic chem) – finishing my “review” assignment.
- Organic chem readings + assignment (due Sunday – bleh)
- First aid course (Saturday + Sunday for 8 hours/day – there’s breaks, of course)
- Catching up on cell biology readings + notes
- Readings for psychology + notes
I have such a fun weekend planned for myself…
What do you have planned this weekend?
