Woa!! I haven't posted in this thread for nearly a YEAR I'm so sorry I'm actually the worst at updates/speaking to human beings and telling them what I am up to (even though the site seems just about dead but I mean I always do hope to contact old friends).
I passed all my summer classes, if anyone was wondering. I took three: Multidimensional Calculus, General Biology, and Molecular Biology. I somehow pulled off a 100/100 points on my calculus final (due to B O N U S P O I N T S) and surprised the professor since I kept fucking napping EVERY SINGLE CLASS WE HAD (and he KNEW because the class had TEN PEOPLE IN IT and okay I know I shouldn't nap but like... it was hot and we didn't have AC and I was fasting so I was gone). The biology classes were so much more fun (the molecular one had only two students in it, me and another dude who I would come to realize was one of Jon's best friends and roommate) and I guess it led me to realize I had much more of a passion for biology than any of the other engineering classes I had taken. There were other factors too, like a rigid class schedule that would restrict me from taking courses I actually was interested in, and a bad grade in physics that would push a lot of my coursework to the next year, that caused me to change majors. Surprise!
I was so dead set on engineering so I was a little surprised, but I managed to realize that I appreciated the courses that I took and the stuff I learned but never actually took a lot of interest in it. It was a scary decision nonetheless, since I had to rethink my next three years. Just a few days ago in fact I formally declared my major as a Cell and Developmental Biology major! Yay!
I also changed my mind on future plans again too. I'm planning on tackling medical school ("o no Marya I thought you were totally against that" oop) and a PhD program. Uhh, at the same time (Bigger oop). I've kinda gotten into that medical research life, since I've been working in a lab at the medical center and I will be there for the summer doing some research on stem cells and T cells. That's where I'm at so far, I guess.
Other than that, school's been fun as usual. Played a lot more squash matches this year, met lots of new people, yadda yadda. Other than sleepless nights (the panda is me right now, sleep deprived and recovering during her spring break) and ranting to my roommate constantly on the State of Things, I've been doing okay. It's got it's ups and downs but I'm content. Oh, and I became a real real adult, I'm a legal guardian for a human being now (my little brother yeet ^w^) and my schedule next semester looks fabulous (five courses technically, but one is independent research so like I can go whenever I want) where I only have the bulk of my classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with one on Wednesday. NOTHING, I repeat, NOTHING on Mondays and Fridays. I'm TOO EXCITED I'VE NEVER BEEN SO HAPPY.
Okay, okay, I'm done rambling about the real world for now I think. Next year is the MCAT and applying to real life things so it's a little daunting. To say I miss writing and interacting with friends from the internet is kinda an understatement. I long for the day I can happily sit down without so much work to do and just write for hours on end. But goals come first I guess.
How are y'all doing? If anyone wants to talk to a loser panda still, just drop me a message (not Rosie, you do that too much).
