I just headed back to school this semester to go pre-med. I already graduated with a mass comm degree, but I couldnt find a job, so I decided to live my dream! lol

I started classes last week, but I can already tell its going to be a hard semester!

I’ll play! It’s actually my third week of spring semester already! I’m finishing my academic semester for a doctorate in audiology. This semester I have Interviewing and Counseling Techniques, Developmental Speech Perception (how babies learn to speak what they hear!), and a Neuroscience lab. Also, I see patients 2 days a week. Compared to my previous 8 semesters, this one is really light! I don’t know what to do with myself (well… go on WB I guess!). I can’t wait to finish this semester and start my year-long internship.. the final hurdle before graduation!

ME! Can I complain?!

Dude i gotta leave in like 2 minutes to go to a lab. I’m that weird old girl in the class. That weird old MARRIED girl. In a freshman level class, LOL. I graduated, oh, 1.5 years ago with my BS in chemistry. Today we’re learning how to use a microscope! Snooze….seriously i think i know how to use one after 4 years of chemical analysis and 1.5 years of being an engineer….i use one all the damn time!

I just hope I don’t end up with the weird, awkward 18 year old freshman biology boy as my lab partner who wants to stare at my breasts the whole class….those are the worst.

And i’ll be nicely dressed (coming from work, that’s a given) which is even weirder and more out of place.

Sigh, vent over. Gotta go place nice with the freshies =]

I’m already 3 weeks into the semester – and my classes go until May 28th, so it’s a long semester.  I love it though, even though my site visit started at 7:30 this morning (and I had an hour drive there) and then I had to go to class (which was an hour drive from the hospital) and had class until 5 and just made it home a few minutes ago… now time to study for my final that’s on Thursday.  Gotta love professional school!

Hooray there are others~! 🙂

Yes, I start school the second week of February, and my wedding is the end of February. Anyone plan a wedding during school and have to ask teachers to take off a certain amount for planning/honeymoon? 🙂 I don’t quite know how to go about it!


Its so nice to see other student bees here!

@Amaryllis – there’s a few people in my program who like to talk a lot too! It drives me nuts, because it’s usually nothing interesting or original. Far from being the “older” women, though, in my program, it’s the “younger”/just out of undergrad women. Also, today was my first day too. It’s a cohort, so it’s kinda nice knowing everyone already, and we all get along, although it is a teensy bit clique-y already, and it’s only the 2nd semester of a 2 year program.

@ejs – good luck with that lab partner pairing! Awkward town!

Today was my first day of classes. I actually graduated with a degree in December 2008 and took 2009 off to try to work (yeah, didn’t go so well). So now I’m back trying to work toward an advanced degree. My first and only class today was elementary statistics. I have avoided having anything slightly to do with math for the last 6 years. I took my last math class as a guest college student while I was a senior in high school. I am so not thrilled to be dealing with numbers again.

On the upside, I get all of my communication sciences classes tomorrow. I’m excited and intimidated. I think it will be a good semester–I hope it will be good.

Ok so i was still “old” but survived. Fessed up to the prof i’m really an engineer and can’t go to lab b/c of a business trip. he was nice enough about it and all “well we’ll make it work” but not exactly thrilled.

My lab partner is a really nice girl who actually works doing microbiology–i have a feeling that between the two of us, we’re quite experienced w/ bio stuff and we’ll breeze right through! And she was way cool about me not coming in in two weeks–very nice about it.

Could’ve been worse! But yeah i felt so old. Especially when the girl behind me was obviously like 7 months pregnant and barely looked old enough to drive. And the international students, too, but they ALWAYS look super young.

It’s so werid “going back”.

  • Wedding: August 2010

Yay for student brides!

I am in my second semester of second year of Dental School – Supposed to be the worst semester of 4 years. We started back the 4th of January and go until August 6th with 1 week off in April for Spring Break/to study for our National Board Exams.  

The classes we have now are: Medicine, Fixed Prosthodontics, Removable Prothodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Practice Management, Basic Pathology II, Oral Pathology, Radiology, and Intro to Clinic Experience II –

I’m usually at school from 8am to anywhere from 4-7pm – it is terrible!

But hopefully come May (after boards) it will be better! Undecided

Yuck! Back to school! My first day back wasn’t too terrible, except for the part where we found out about this crazy insanely intense project that we have to do and I’m very stressed about it! 

I’m only taking 9 hours this semester, and 1 of those classes is online, so my schedule is pretty awesome…but I’m going to have tons of homework this semester! I’m ready for May – this is my last semester of classes ’cause I’ll be student teaching in August!
