Love the train pics!!!

I actually made an 'A' in Gen. Chem. and NEVER passed O. Chem. I just could not wrap my mind around all the nomenclature and othe aspect of O.Chem. I concur that, as a Med Tech major (changed from Pharmacy), it SUCKED having to take Economics, Physics (hated it), Applied Calc., and all the other classes that made me hate school. I wish that college could be a little more major specific earlier on in the Fresh & Soph years.....I know they want you to be "well rounded" and blah, blah, blah, but when is a Lab Tech going to need Physics or Applied Calculus anyway????

Most most favorite class was Microbiology and Immunology. Now, that's what I'm talking about. I liked Genetics too. Never did get to take Anat./Physiology (quit before I took it), but I was looking very forward to it. Man, I NEED to go back!!!!!!!

For all the calculus we encounter in our everyday lives.

Oh yeah, LOL I forgot about those daily calc problems that keep popping up. hehehe

I took Applied Calc. which was SUPPOSED to be 'easier' that Calc. I, but it was all word problems and you had to use calc. to solve them. 8O 8O 8O NOT....I got a "D" in that course, but it's passing, I guess.

Godd luck next semester!!!
