I’m here to update y’all about the end of my semester!
I’M HALF WAY DONE WITH MY BACHELOR’S DEGREE!
On a more serious note, as I’ve said before, I was only enrolled in ten hours this semester because I was in between switching my major to Allied Health from Biology. I dropped the biology classes I was registered for and registered for health classes that non-health majors could take just so I wouldn’t be taking useless classes that wouldn’t count towards the degree I intend to graduate with.
Anywho, enough of the technical side of it. I was so close to a 4.0 this semester! I managed to kick butt in Ochem II and I got an A! That’s my first A in a science so I’m pretty pumped about that and for it to be in Ochem is just amazing to me. I also got an A in both of my health classes that I took but the one B that I got was in Ochem lab! how ridiculous. Instead of a 4.0 this semester, I got a freaking 3.9 and wasn’t named to the Dean’s list. I’m going to go for it again next semester but we’ll see what Biochem holds for me..
So in the end, I achieved a 3.9 this semester which boosts my overall GPA up to a 3.4! How exciting! I know that I’m not the perfect med school applicant now but every since my first semester here, my GPA has been improving and I don’t intend to stop now. I will get my GPA up above a 3.5 and I will get into med school. You just wait and see!
In other news, I started working at the Office of Professional School Advising at A&M. I love it a lot and I love the people I work with. I think I’m acclimating very well! I think it’s a good place for me to be since they’ll be the ones to look over my med school app before I actually turn it in! Bath and Body Works called me to schedule and interview two month after I applied there but I don’t need them anymore since I’ve got OPSA! On my first paycheck, I have accumulated over 40 hours! Whoop!
Summer time is over and now it’s time to get back down to business. I’m taking a summer course at A&M. The first half of Anatomy and Physiology. Here at A&M, this course is killer.. I’ve planned to take it in the summer so that I can focus all of my attention on that one class. I hope I can pull a fantastic grade in this class since I’m counting it as one of my upper level biology classes for med school.
Switching gears real quick. I just wanted to thank all the men and women who have sacrificed their lives to protect our freedom here in the United States. My grandpa and his twin brother both fought in WWII and this is a picture of both of them and my grandpa’s flag from his funeral. My heart goes out to all of the families who not just throw parties on Memorial day, but the families who get together on this day to remember the ones they have lost while serving our country.
In closing, I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day and you actually thought about what the holiday means. Have a great rest of your week!
Thanks and Gig’em,
