Likely class schedule

Jul. 18th, 2006 | 05:10 pm
mood: contemplativecalculating
music: silence

Picture-y goodness thanks to Google Calendar. Much easier doing it there than on paper.

These are the classes I'm already registered for. I'm going to try and see if I can work out a better schedule, but I don't think there really is one. Now all I need to do is try to decide how many hours I can work and where I'm going to put them (and if they're still willing to keep me on at work once I decide all that).

I was going to post a color screen shot instead, but my GIMP is crashing for some reason.

BSC2010 = Core Biology 1
BSC2085 = Anatomy and Physiology 1
CHM2045 = General Chemistry 1
STA2023 = Statistics 1 (online; not shown)
------------

15 credit hours.

I need go talk to som epeople, do some reading, and do some calculating to see if it's better/possible to take A&P at UF during my junior/senior years instead of at SFCC. Since I need things like microbio and whatnot, I don't know if I'll have time though.

Life is like a giraffe on a slide

May. 30th, 2006 | 10:31 pm
mood: blahblah

I came across a picture in my psychology textbook the other day that made me chuckle, then feel bad for the little guy, then realize that it actually did a good job at illustrating how I've been feeling lately.

Read more...Collapse )

Between my classes, personal life, lack of anything creative and everything else in my life, as well as the troubles of a few people very dear to me, things haven't quite felt 100% ducky lately.

And even if I do write something, which is rare lately, I don't feel like posting it here any more.

I know I'm fiending for dessert of some sort when I pick the M&Ms out of my trail mix.

Feels funny to be here

May. 30th, 2006 | 12:55 pm
mood: busyhomework
music: Hearts of space (and psychology videos)

I've worked full time for so long that it's just weird to be home at this time in the afternoon.

Shameless self-promotion...

...and positive proof that deadlines mean nothing.

Two years in the making procrastinating, I now present our group's first book:

Tales from the Jar: Avoidance (a short story collection)

I'll have extra copies soon if anyone is interested and doesn't want to purchase online.

I honestly don't have much time or energy for livejournal these days. I've trimmed my friends list down, and will likely do more trimming as time goes by.

I know that some people don't care about adding/removing, or being added/removed, and some people take it personally, and so I felt inclined to mention it. It's nothing personal--just a matter of time and lack of energy. I haven't been reading journals much in the first place.

After all, the reason I had for adding some people were because I met them once and though they were neat, but I've yet to see many of them ever again or to talk to them in any capacity, or else have otherwise lost touch or something like that.

So, so long, thanks for all the fish, and hope to see you around again sometime.

some sort of universal law

Apr. 24th, 2006 | 09:22 pm

Of course, there's some sort of universal law, somewhat akin to Godwin's Law, that states that as soon as one person on the internet makes fun of or criticizes someone else for their grammer, that person will subsequently make errors of their own, often in the very text that they type in rebuttal to the first person.

I don't know if this law has a name yet or not.

If not, I humbly suggest "Agnor's Law #22".

I left all sorts of words out of my comments on the previous entry. Oops.

I feel dirty inside...

Apr. 22nd, 2006 | 05:40 pm

and like such a consumer.

Spent almost $300 today. Granted, some of it was necessary, like three pairs of new shoes (each fills a different niche) for $70 (Payless has a buy-one-get-one-half-off thing going on now, by the by); some articles of clothing (I hardly ever buy clothes or shoes, and they begin to show their wear); the usual necessities like bathroom stuff, cat food and litter; other stuff that I've had a need for, like a tape measure and an actual toolbox to put all my tools in, instead of just letting them float around ( I actually have some of them in a bag right now. That's sad); a second flashlight; batteries for said flashlights and my camera; and socks (how in the world do they keep disappearing?).

Hell, I'm looking over the pile of swag right now, and there's little in there that strikes me as excessive. I bought a pedometer ($5) for when I go walking and hiking and a couple plastic water bottles with measurements on the sides so that I can keep a better eye on my water intake at home and at work.

Those last three are really the only things. I guess everything just adds up fast.

That's why I laugh and say no whenever the cashier at Target asks me if I want to sign up for a Target credit card.

classes and requirements; holy crap; Why Did I Choose This Path?

Apr. 20th, 2006 | 09:16 pm

Spent a while this evening trying to figure out what I need and what order I need it in.

It's times like this when I consider being a religion major or something--I looked up their transfer requirements out of curiosity and almost cried when I saw them: "2 RELIGION COURSES @ 2000 LEVEL OR ABOVE - GRADE OF C".

That's it (except for normal AA stuff, of course).

Meanwhile, my requirements

run three or four levels deepCollapse )


In short: geezus christ, I need to get a move on.

I don't think I could finish in a year even if I went full time.

Well, I could if I wanted a normal psychology degree. But not if I add in the premedical stuff or do what I need in order to hope to get into the neuroscience program.

I've also looked over entrance requirements for different colleges and I'm not sure where I'm supposed to have the time to take so many other required courses in addition to the courses required for my actual major. No surprise that a significant amount of premeds are biology majors--overlapping courses helps a great deal.

Right now, things are looking

like thisCollapse )

Assuming my math is correct, all that adds up to thirty seven credit hours. Only hard-coded prerequisites are shown. Not included are the suggestions a la BSC2010: "In addition to biology, a background in chemistry is strongly recommended."

I also need...Collapse )
Wow.

Sigh.

I'm not sure if I could do that in a year (summer and then fall/spring) or not; it'd be awful close. Probably looking at a year and another semester after that. I'm likely going to load up as much as I can this summer (goodbye life and sleep) so that I can get these chains started.

I guess that's what I get for waiting and not making a decision until so late. I have so much to do. What really, really sucks in my mind is that I could actually get my AA so much sooner if I went the normal psychology route and took all the bullshit "intro to blahblahblah" classes for the credits I needed.

Progress

Apr. 16th, 2006 | 08:48 pm

I've spent most of the evening editing my novel.

I'm not sure why the word "novel" bugs me so much. But it does.

I've made some good progress. At least 100 pages, I think. Though I'm not cutting very much out at all, and that concerns me a bit. It's much too long.

The story is probably flawed. But I'm of the mind right now that it'd be too much work to fix it, and that my time would be better spent on the next one.

I'm thinking about it, and a lot of my other work, and I'm wondering if I want to even bother going through the hassle of trying to get any of it published. I'm tempted to just self-publish them, so that I can call them "finished" and have a final sort of thing to hold in my hands, and can then go on to the next project.

There doesn't seem much point in putting all that work into trying to find a home for so many pieces. But I suppose the big thing now would be to get my name out there, and not any sort of compensation.

I'm also tired of having goals and things I want to do and never doing them.
