Courses Update

Before we begin I'm going to apologize for not getting around to everyone's blogs this week. I've been busy and really stressed as I run around trying to fix things up. If you're not sure what I'm talking about just hop over to this post and skim it over.

Actually, can we pretend that that incident never happened?

Shoo!

So its been a hectic week to say the least. I've been running talking around to several coordinators, getting documents filled out and signed and of course, attending my new courses. I'm helping a psychology experiment with the lab I just joined and I've been reading papers for the other. Like really dense papers that are anywhere from 20 to 60 pages long.

I still need to prepare for 2 presentations and 2 midterms for next week though. Not looking forward to that.

Let's get started.

A big thank you to the head of the Undergraduate Psychology department. She wrote a letter to the Science department on my behalf explaining my situation and this probably went a long ways in getting me into these two courses.

In the meantime, this means my internship application can finally proceed seeing as I am still part of the Specialization program. I'm not completely safe yet. If for some reason I start failing my courses I could fail to meet the minimum GPA requirement. It's unlikely but who knows? I've never joined two courses half way through a term before.

Either way, this term got a lot more interesting, and a lot more difficult.

Let's hope I can stay conscious.

  9. I am sure that you will just do fine. Life is busy. Blogging is a hobby and blogger friends are terrific people. I have notised that they are the most understanding and supportive people you could find. I mean, they don't know you and still make an affort to support. Keep blogging though. It will take pressure from you shoulder's ( and mind) if you talk about problems, no matter how small.

  12. Man back in college I knew this kid that double major/double minored and was an RA, plus I truly can hardly remember a day I didn't see him playing Ultimate. Just depends on your level of intelligence and full on ability to BS right?

  19. Gosh, 20-60 pages report? Glad my program doesn't require such an intensive courses like that.

  20. Good luck! I know how difficult it is keeping up with deadlines too. I had a bit of a breakdown and just stopped going into Uni for two whole weeks. Will probably regret that decision soon enough.

  21. I am trying to grasp the mechanisms of this degree. You are in an internship (yay for you!!) but you exceeded the amount of courses required?!?! (why is that such a big deal? Sorry, am totally ignorant about this type of education system! Sorry!)So now after intervention from this fabulous woman, your internship is safe but you have to do these very intense courses.

    Crikey and blimey!

    I have everything bendable crossed for you!!! Of course you'll graduate and graduate with honours! Good luck! Take care
