“I Should’ve Done These Earlier”
.: I’m a junior, and I’m just now taking Chem-lab. Just to give you a proper perspective on how tardy I am, most people take Chem-lab in conjunction with Chem II, which they also take their second semester of their freshman year. This is my sixth semester at Baylor.
.: I’m also just now taking Calculus II, which happens to be the last math class I’ll ever have. My plan was to take it five semesters after taking Calculus I so that I would thoroughly forget everything I learned, but so far the class seems to be making sense, so I guess my plan failed.
.: I’m in O-Chem II now, which I suppose isn’t too late. I survived a semester with the worst only-teaches-and-doesn’t-do-research professor ever, and my working knowledge of o-chem doesn’t seem to be too bad. Plus, I just bought some bitchin’ o-chem flash cards, so I’m pretty much set.
.: I’m also in Political Science [sic] 2301 – Constitutional Development (a.k.a. Yay America! 101), but I don’t feel so bad about taking this required class so late, since my sister took it her second senior year.
.: And finally that leaves Molecular Genetics and Molecular Genetics Lab, by far one of the coolest classes I’ll ever take. How do I know? I get to create terrible affronts to nature and destroy precious complex cellular machinery on a weekly basis, all with the non-zero possibility that I might horribly mutate the DNA of myself and several innocent bystanders. What more could a student ask for?
