    meanwhile, I'm fretting myself out of sleep that my joint honours astrophysics/computer science degree will be completely worthless.

    is that a legitimate concern?

    not trying to be a dick

    it's an honest question

    I cannot seem to unwind lately and I think a lot of it is getting anxious and a bit worried about school. Even after a day like today, enjoying the newfound sun, taking pictures, hanging with friends, I get home and am just worried. Worried about a relationship, worried about failing, hell worried about not even making a dent in the SATs. I tried some of their practice tests and let's just say it made me feel a hell of a lot stupider than before. I know I need to freshen up, but I cannot shake these nerves.

    Also I have no idea on where to start or what direction to take my application essay, or where I could begin looking for scholarships, and arghrhghghghgh.

    As someone prepping for the GRE right now, let me just say, if it is math you are having trouble with, it is SO doable. Mindset is huge on that. Allow yourself to make mistakes in your practice. It is ok to be wrong, just keep trying problems, and REALLY make sure you understand why the answer is what it is. It is even GOOD to get them wrong, as you are doing so now, rather than on the SAT. As you go, circle the ones you think you got wrong, AND anything you were not 100% on. You should review both. The SAT is largely a long ass test/mindgame, and you should play it as such. Freaking out will hurt you, being cool as a cucumber will help.
    Also remember, colleges like high SAT scores, but there are plenty of ways to show your competence other than that. Many schools will overlook a mediocre score if you have solid grades and extracurricular.

    On the topic of "oh what do I do with this liberal arts degree", I'm tired of coming up with ways to explain what I'm doing with my life.

    Random person: What are you taking?
    Me: I'm getting my English degree.
    Random person with the inevitable question: Oh, what are you going to do with that?
    Me every single time: I don't really know.
    Random person's inevitable response: Could you teach with that?
    Me: Eh yeah I guess.

    Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck you guys probably know what I'm talking about.

    I've actually thought of just making up bullshit answers to have a different conversation once in a while. "Oh, I'm actually a masseuse at an old folk's retirement facility" or something.

    Now I feel either idiosyncratic or a complete cliche, since I am that guy who's getting a liberal arts degree in order to eventually teach.

    Into my senior year of college I realized I actually really enjoyed lecturing on philosophy.

    I now want a masters in philosophy to lecture about philosophy.

    Obviously the last final exam I'm ever going to take has to be the most mind-blowingly difficult final exam I will ever take.

    Fuck. This. Noise.

    My last exam of the year is tomorrow and I may have mentioned already I'm going in with a 59%, not thrilled. These pages of notes with scribbles all over them will surely come in use until then...

    I wish my exams were like this. Historically I don't need that but it would make me feel so comfortable.
    In most of the subjects I take the exam is a hurdle to passing the class.

    Just read "How Doctors Think" by Jerome Groopman. Now to write a book report on it. But the point of the book is how to work better with your doctors as a patient, and as a doctor to tailor care to the individual.

    Not get hung up on statistical analysis, recommend invasive procedures that may not provide an improvement of quality of life, seek new treatments when current ones are ineffective, etc.

    Pretty fucking good. Expected a dry read, but it turned out to go pretty quick.

    the rubric for this book report said it was supposed to be 500 - 700 words

    I ended up writing 2,500.

    Sorry I tripled the length of the assignment, professor! Next time, don't ask for a chapter-by-chapter summary

    I just bombed my ethics midterm. I dont think I can do well in this class anymore :( furthermore I've my Nutrition class to worry about that I dont think I can do well on anymore either. I have two days left to drop a class but I dont know, I am not gonna finish with a good gpa either way. I regret trying to 'challenge myself' because I am only making transfer more difficult. I was really optimistic just a few weeks ago too, ugh.

    Fuck venn diagrams, forever and ever. I hate them!

    According to the professor, it's me and one other guy with a C average in the logic class- everyone else is As or Fs. Missed out on a B on that last test because I ran out of time on a truth table :s

    Group Project make me go something something.

    They're always bad, but there's also always at least one other person who's trying. This is just me and one dude, and I'm doing like 75% of the work.

    In the last two and a half days I've done 12 hours or so on this paper and presentation, and I swear he can't have done more than 2 based on the utter shit of a skeleton powerpoint that he did. I'm letting my rage get in the way of further work.

    Edit: Ugh, no way. He's already at school working on this, and in the last hour, he added 5-6 bullets, text only, to 5 slides.

    I hope so. I have emailed and left voicemails for my professor, but I haven't heard back from him yet. I mean, I can still pass the class if I get a zero on this, but it will be with like a D instead of an A, and I'm not really okay with that.

    I am not a happy Skeith today. I called up Manoa while I was waiting at the DMV because I figured they would've at least gotten started on my application by now, and I hear that they still haven't gotten the thing I sent them. Meaning, of course, they still haven't started on my app. So I have no chance at getting in the dorms if I keep trying to get in for fall. I'm not sure if that's good or bad, frankly. Is it a social faux pas to fax 10 copies of the same thing to a college admissions office and email the same thing every hour, on the hour?

  • So, I wrote up a big thing on college and wanting to go back, and well, I'm not sure where to put it. I'm not sure I want to put it anywhere. It's a lot of stuff I haven't really let myself think about for a while, and stuff I REALLY don't like to talk about for reasons that kind of become apparent in the...I guess it's basically an essay. Shit, I mean it took up two and a half pages in Word so I'm not sure it'll even fit in here but afdlafskjlaldksjf;adsf

    I dunno. Someone yell at me to put it somewhere.
