Silly Q

Is it me or does Organic Chemistry SUCK?

I have a midterm on Thursday...and I really wanna catch up with the series I'm following (death note, darker than black, and bakumatsu kikansetsu orohanihoheto).....LIFE IS HARSH.

Does anyone know any magical ways of learning O-Chem fast?

Spend a lot of time on it. This holds especially true if you're on your second semester of it (or a semester where you're expected to know those mechanisms and syntheses backward and forward).

You guys in University are very lucky.

I can't stand High School anymore. The cliques, the drama and the propaganda are killing me. ;_; I just want to go to University! I'm 28 days away from leaving this nasty place.

I'm going to major in Political Science and most likely go to law school afterwards. Are there any tips you guys can give to me for University? I've taken lots of AP classes and I'm used to a heavy work load. I really just want some freedom, lol.

I like learning (though it sounds cheesy) and pretty much like to stuff my head with all sorts of useless knowledge, however my school seems pretty boring to me. It seems to be full of people who don't listen to a word that comes out of their mouths. However I got some laughs when I heard someone seriously exclaim "If English was good enough for jesus, its good enough for me."

If you don't get this... well I am extremly sorry

Right now I'm majoring in Japanese, but I'm thinking about changing to Linguistics. Reason being, I may transfer to a school back home that doesn't offer Japanese simply because Cali out-of-state tuition was already crazy at the start, and now it just continues to rise every year into the "I can't afford it anymore"-o-sphere. (Not to mention, the only kanji teacher here is nutso.)

1 more day until I find out if I am now a Bachelor of Social Sciences in Gerontology (BSocSc) or have to take a makeup course or two. You can never be sure until you see the marks yourself. I literally can get a D- on both courses and still claim a degree. In case people are wondering, when I am in lecture I can usually be found fiddling with something in my hand while staring at a wall and memorizing everything the prof says that is actually important. I haven't taken notes since Year 2. I also frequently fell asleep in one early course because the profs voice was so boring (I think I got a B- in that course).

Tips? Be versatile and stay focused on your goals. New freedom is good, but you can get tripped up in it and lose sight of what's important. It's a good growing experience, but it can be painful to recover from.

As for heavy workload, that's what I thought in high school. I crushed myself with engineering. Classes at my university and such, combined with the format of the classes, was much more difficult than I was used to. Don't be frustrated and give up - stick with it and work through it, but listen to yourself and be open to change. Seems contradictory, but it's a balance that's necessary.

Don't be frustrated by the academics. At this university, in my classes (science classes), it's almost impossible to get a perfect score on an exam. But it varies school by school, and more importantly, class by class (professor by professor, really). My sister want to a university where she was racking up perfects left and right; then she transferred to another school. From what I hear, the academics sound similar to how they are here.

Best tip is to try your best, really. Stay in good communications with the teachers. Some are actually understanding enough if you're having difficulty with their class. Tutors are a good source of help as well. They're students just like you.

Taking the orientation before actually picking your classes for your first semester in college is always good. It helps you get a feel for the university. It also helps you get an idea of what to expect and help you guage the workload. Usually, you get a feel for your classes in the first week, so you're allowed to transfer from one class to another.

Ask questions. There's no such thing as a stupid question.

Take notes. You'll be needing it when you study for the test. Even bring a recorder if you have to. I know I did when I took classes for my Mechanical Engineering degree. Now, since I'm taking classes to get my Computer Systems Engineering degree, I'm using my Acer laptop and its rotating built-in webcam to capture a video of the teacher's teachings. That way, if I miss a portion of the notetaking the teacher puts up on the board for being too slow, I can just rewind.

Learn to balance. Having a social life while working full-time and being a student isn't easy, I know. You'll have to make some sacrifices, but understand that some good sacrifices are worth it in the long run.

You are now looking at a certified degree holder. Only thing left is to go pick it up.

That's awesome! It must feel good to be done with University! You can walk around proudly and go into the real world without too many restraints.

I'm pretty envious!

*cries*

Good luck, Kei-Kei. =P
