My school schedule is sure a lot more busy than my freelancing / trapping schedule, (well, it you don’t count all the work I did building my cabin), and if nothing else it is a brand new experience, and wholly enlightening in many ways.
I must say I grabbed the bull by the horns and got involved to the max, and have since whittled down my activity after going through a massive burst of involvement.
I have honed down my activities to remain involved in the following:
*school work and academics
*clubs (rotaract, neuroscience, geology, OMC, and GEEK)
You may have noticed that I have been pretty quiet on the blogs, and that is because I have been blogging on my new pet project to get more involved with the Lethbridge News and CAmpus Community, where I have relaunched 3cpoh.com into an #ulethaltnews student site. Me and another x-ranch-hand have decided to team up and try and collaborate to bring some of my web design and publishing skills to local businesses, and possibly start to grow my web development services, so that would be fun if I could get some new business that way.
School is overwhelming. there is so much amazing stuff to learn and know, and I am totally in love with it, but get really upset when I get poor grades, as I totally bombed my Physics Midterm, and now am playing catchup, and there is a possibility that I may have to re-take it since I have been out of the physics scene for awhile, but at least I will have a strong approach should I take it again.
As for my other classes, BIO 1020 is extremely challenging, and The Diversity of Life is vast, and more than I could have ever imagined, and will be spending the next few days preparing for my midterms in Bio, as they are some of the toughest, and will really impact my GPA as it stands.
I recently met with the Co-Op Job Agency on Campus who is working with me to find some placement options to fit with my new science designation, so that I will be able to get some financing, or at least a career-related employment experience opportunity, which is exciting.
In other news, I am going to work with some local groups or departments to develop a budget for exploration, as well as work on some other items.
My ARky class is totally exciting, and environmental science is scary — learning about all the species, pollution problems, and strain put on good ol mother earth. Oh well, I am glad I got to experience nature at its finest, and can learn some things in the class to help my future adventures. In the meantime, it is safe to say that I am going for my Science degree, and will at least pass a few classes, and have met some new friends, and am maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle for the most part (although some of the food I eat is canned, boxed, etc.), and didn’t get any garden food this year, but can’t complain and enjoy things for the most part.
My roomate is out of the house tonight so I might watch some TV and just keep getting caughtup on homework and other items. Until next time, love ya!
