It’s Pure Madness: And I Love It

So I’ve just gone over my syllabi for the semester: I’m cramming 4 months of classes into 6 weeks. That alone is madness.

My work for this week constitutes the following:

5 chapters in Forensic Anthropology
5 chapters in The Human Bone Manual
1 study guide that requires the memorization of the names and locations of 100+ bones in the human body
2 videos
5 Powerpoints/Lectures
Multiple discussion board postings + citations, etc.
2 quizzes

And that’s just one class.

Multiply that times 2 and then you know what I’m up against.

But I love it. 🙂

(See you when I come up for air!)

    • Well, I have to tell you. You’re a HUGE inspiration, Y. I used to wonder if I had what it takes to push on toward a Master’s. After hearing that you did it- I knew I could do it too. True story! 😉

  3. I could go 5 chapters in Forensic Anthropology.

  4. Summer semesters tend to tear people up..Once you get through this tho, I am willing to bet that the anatomy studies pay off in your art as well..Forward charge!!

    • Yeah, summer classes are tough- mostly because of the time restraints and the student has to shove SO MUCH INFO. into their heads in a ridiculously short amount of time. pressure is an understatement! Butt I love that type of pressure. I like extreme challenges. And, what scares many people, I take comfort in. I’m betting you can understand that. ;0)

      • That is true… Faced with huge challenges that daunt some, I rise to the occasion. The goofy thing is, there has been times where I lose it when some small inconsequential thing occurs, the sort of stuff people never freak over.

      • Well, I think we all do that sometimes.

        July 9, 2015 at 9:04 am

      • True.

  5. Holy hell, chica! Super impressed! I shall live vicariously through your studies – I LOVE all your subjects! You will slay this semester. -xo 3T

    July 8, 2015 at 6:16 pm

    • Well I’m hoping so. ;0) Thanks for your support! And yeah, these subjects are freaking awesome. Intense stuff- (course load-wide) but I do love it.

    • I know…Day 1: adrenaline and excitement. Day 3- burnout…haha. (Isn’t that how it goes?)

    I’m impressed! I remember how much fun I had during summer semesters. That was actually the only time I made the Dean’s list.

    It’s just a lot easier to concentrate when you’re wearing shorts and the weather isn’t bone-chillingly cold.

    BTW; I took that psychopath test. I scored 12. I hope that you excel at everything, this summer.

    • I hear you! For me, it’s all the same, because my hot water heater exploded (twice) and died, so now, I take Arctic showers no matter what the weather’s like outside. It’ll be like that for a few more months. And, the car just died- I could go on with a pretty long list! So, I’m used to being challenged on an entirely different level than many people- and still must keep up my grades to Dean’s List status every semester. (I’ll be starting my Master’s soon- and at that level- if you make a “C” in any of your classes- they expel you from the program.) So, I HAVE to now.

      Thanks for the well wishes, by the way. :0) Also, 12 is pretty good on the )psychopathic) test. I don’ think you have anything to worry about. ;0)

    HECK YES! Forensic Anth was an amazing class. I know you’ll rock it.

    • I should’ve known you’ve already taken it- haa. Not surprising. 😉

    Oh My ! Perhaps you should turn this into a video blog and we can watch this process of intense brain activity. 😀
