I know some of you guys are taking classes for this upcoming semester. What are your schedules like?
I have Audiology on Tuesday, Speech Pathology on Wednesday, Foundations of Education Thursday, and Chemistry on Friday. I’m also going to see if I can do an internship if it fits into my schedule… I’ll be one busy bee. I’m going back and forth between panic and excitement.
I am taking some classes, but its online. I feel a lot more comfortable online then in class. This is my last semester and I’ll earn my AA degree. This is a community college though but I may transfer to a University. I am taking Administration of Justice, History and a course called University. Great for you that you’re taking in classes, I couldn’t handle it with to many voice alterations. I hope you have a great semester!
I’m just taking one online course: Children’s Literature. You’ve got quite a busy schedule, good luck.
I’m only taking 2 courses this semester and working. In the Spring I’ll be full time at a different school. Good luck! I always enjoyed having a student worker job when I was in school the 1st time.
I first went to a private college, got kicked out whilst the schizophrenia kicked in, and then went to a community college. I’m not at a local liberal arts college, and I’m starting my senior year. I had a hospitalization last semester but I feel a lot better now. Of course, with this illness being so unpredictable you never know what’s going to happen. I think I took on too much this semester so who knows how I’ll react. Meds are working well for me though. I hope your semester goes well. History has always interested me. I’d like to take a history course about Europe just for fun in the Spring semester.
Children’s Lit sounds like a lot of fun! I took a ‘Voice & Diction’ class a few semesters back and we did a section on children’s literature. It wasn’t really relevant to the course at all but it sure was fun. We got to read children’s books to the class. I used to work in a library, back when I was in high school, so I had a lot of experience. Fortunately for me when it comes to speaking in front of crowds, I don’t have much of an issue. It’s one on one social interactions that get me. Kudos for taking an online class, I know how hard they can be.
What classes are you taking, @metime? I have a job at my local community college, the one I used to go to. They kept me on when I transferred though. I thoroughly enjoy the job, it’s very easy for me and the people I work with allow me time off when I need time off.
I’m only taking two classes, Chem 101 in class room Mon/ Wed nights
A writing class on-line…
I work full time so I can only fit in two classes.
I’m nervous about chemistry! My chem class is called chem and society…it’s targeted towards people who are not chemistry students, but who need to take a physical science. How do you feel about it? Do you think you’ll do ok?
Way to go Surprised. Chemistry is hard! Did you start yet?
not yet. I’m a bit nervous. It’s just in intro. I’ve got the math down, and I’m lucky my Mom is a science teacher.
I will be asking for help.
I will go to you with any questions then
I took chemistry in high school. I failed. I got behind early on and it was impossible to catch up. But it was probably due to the fact that I was smoking a LOT of pot. At school on breaks and lunch, while walking to school, and every night. plus my schizophrenia was starting about then. I was a smart kid growing up but I let school slide as I got older. But yeah, good luck in that. I don’t start my HARD classes until Winter quarter.
I would love to take the children’s lit. That looks like a very fun class.
I actually took it last summer but it was an accelerated class i.e. the class was for 6 weeks but it had all the work of a three month class. So I dropped it. I know I will like it better than math or science but I know the work and it will not be easy.
I am taking intro to Business and College Algebra.
I love algebra. I wish I could take more math classes. What are you going for?
Art History, but I daydream about getting back into Studio Art in Ceramics.
When I took Chem 1 in college I had an absolutely horrible professor. The woman was just worthless. I decided to just not go back. Instead, I only went to class on test days, though I did do the mandatory labs, and never studied except on those test days. It was an incredibly stupid thing for me to do but I was losing it around that time and wasn’t thinking clearly. I got a D in the class.
When I took Chem in high school I had a horrid teacher. She was very unkind, old and bitter. I remember just not liking the sound of her voice so I would tune her out and daydream. I never listened to the lectures so I never learned anything. Labs I couldn’t do either, I was never a master at the test tubes or anything like that. I was just a mess in that class. I managed to get a B in that class but I have no idea how…maybe a misprint. I hope this time around I do better. @Malvok since you managed to ‘pass’ without learning maybe I can pick your brain about some topics. I bet you have a lot of general knowledge on the subject of chemistry.
