I really don't know why I do this to myself lol.
So last week I finished my Spring semester ending my first year at UNCP. I'm happy to say that I ended with straight As once again but the best thing was I got no A minuses. Just 5 pretty little A's. I was ecstatic. =)
So you'd think I'd reward myself with a nice long summer by the pool sipping lemonade right? NOPE! This summer I'm taking three classes, one during each summer term. Here at UNCP we have a Maymester term, which started this past Monday, where you can take one class in just 10 days. Seems easy right? Yeah except you have to be in a classroom for 4 hours a day and you take a test everyday that counts for 17% of your grade. So fun. I'm doing well though. It's BIO 1000 which is the most basic science course offered (can you tell I'm not a fan? haha) I should end with an A- or an A. I just need to study really hard for these next 7 days and I'll be right where I want to be.
The other two classes I'm doing online so it won't be too bad. It took me a few years to really figure out how to take an online class. One of these days I'll have to post some tips for you all that are thinking about taking one. They can be easy but your studying techniques are a whole lot different than an classroom course.
So its been very busy lately. I know I've been MIA since the beginning of finals week. We had our company's commissioning ceremony this past weekend. It went well. I'm happy to announce that 5 new highly trained officers have entered into the ranks of our military. I couldn't be more proud of this group. I worked very closely with most of them this past semester to keep our company running smooth and they will be surely missed. I wish them the best of luck on their new endeavors. And I'd just like that say a big congrats to all the 2012 Commissionees. You did it!
