Happy Friday!

#TGIF!

(My school week actually ends on Thursdays but I still love Fridays!)

Okay, So… this weekend is actually full of school work for me (I have a huge exam on Friday, and a make-up exam on the 17th, so I must be ready!) I won’t be able to do much but study, but that’s okay. I’ll try to be there for the #SaveAlice livestream… but I won’t make any promises! 🙂

**Sidenote: You can donate to save Classic Alice HERE.

Anyhow, I am positive everything will be fine, as long as I don’t wander around the online universe (like I’m doing right now) to avoid my Organic Chemistry class *hides with shame*. I am doing my worksheet as best as I can… but it’s kind of exhausting. “Chemistry is fun”, they said, “you will love it”, they said… (I actually do love it. It just takes a lot of time!)

This was really short, I know, but I need to go and work. Hope you understand.

xoxo,

Nat.

I Will Survive.

You know when all your teachers/professors align everything around a specific week?

evil-teachers_o_186841Well, that’s me right now. I’m right in the middle of the classical example of a college hell week. 🙂

I have been able to survive half of it, but I still have two more exams left! (My hardest ones)

*Starts singing along to this*

I will write a longer post after this week. I promise 🙂

LoveLoveLove,

My Sophomore Year (So far) : Lit Courses + Science

As I said on my first post, I’m a Biology student. Needless to say, that does take some time from me. I need to invest in my future and what I’ll become later on. Also, I actually like what I’m doing. I don’t regret choosing Biology over Lit as my major. Let me explain myself. My Sophomore year has some perks I hadn’t contemplated.

Perk #1: I get to read a lot of lit this year.

This is why I haven’t had much time to read or write my own things. This semester I’m taking more classes, and both my Spanish and English courses are about lit genres. They don’t take as much time as my research English course, but I still need to invest some time on them. The nice thing about that is… I get to learn more about literature and how to analyze it!

My reader self is dancing right now, as both my professors are very supportive and love literature as an art. 

Perk #2: I’m finally learning a lot about the human body and how it works!

I also take my Science classes, which are part of my major. Those basically take 75% of my time (both the classes and the labs). Human Biology is my favorite class, and it’s the reason why I’m so optimistic about this whole year. Organic Chemistry takes a whole chunk of my time and energy, and I’m trying to learn how to love it. (If you have any tips, please refer to the comment section.)

And since nothing is perfect, there are some things that bother me.

I have a lot to say about my Social Sciences professor, but I’ve been taught that if there’s nothing good to say, it’s better to stay silent. All I will say is that I had some expectations about this class and she blew them. She has had a lot of chances to expand her horizons, yet she has a narrow mind. It’s sad to see, actually, especially since she’s studying people, and humanity has evolved. I wish she realizes this before it is too late. 

As for my reading habits (which have nothing to do with college), I’m trying not to procrastinate, which means I’m leaving them for the few free hours I get on the weekends. That’s how I got to read If I Stay last weekend. I don’t think I’ll get more chances like that anytime soon. I will try to sneak some reading time here and there to make things interesting and to have something not school related to blog about.
