My math professor told us to go outside and look at the sky on this night…
The spring semester is over. I took Organic Chemistry 1, and Calculus 2. I received A’s in both classes. I had the top score in Organic Chemistry on the final exam, and got points off for R/S designation on one problem, and an LiAlH4 reaction problem for a total of 203 out of 210 points.
I love Organic Chemistry. :-) I was the peer mentor and tutor for my class while a student taking it at the same time. It was challenging but a good (though incredibly nerve-wracking) experience. I have to thank my classmates for being so awesome. I ran some review sessions and did weekly problem-solving sessions and tutoring. I was honored with an award for Outstanding Student of the Year, by the Hawaii chapter of the American Chemical Society for Organic Chemistry 1 at LCC.
Calculus 2 was a trip. I don’t feel like I understand it, but I’m on to Calculus 3 next semester!
For some odd reason, some people continued to harass me a bit about my personal life. I discovered one of those people liked me and offered to date me if I’m still single in 4 years time. That’s a new one. I’ve never, ever had an offer like that before. I didn’t know what to say since it came from a friend and I don’t feel any attraction to this person in a romantic way. One thing I haven’t admitted to people at school, is that I am seeing someone and that my personal life is personal. I’ll probably start writing a little more freely about the relationship since it’s an important part of my life, but not too much, cause well, it’s personal. ;-)
