End of semester, and inter-semester vacation [Jul. 31st, 2006|12:15 am]
The summer semester is finally drawing to a close, *thank god*. All summer, I've spent a lot of time on the math prep 1 class, Pre-algebra, that I had to take. (I also took a nutrition class but spent less time on it, though I still did okay.) Sometimes before work I'd work on math, during every single dinner break at work I was doing math, after work you'd still find me doing that, and I'd go to the Math Lab before class each Tuesday and Thursday, get help from Hsiaokwai and a girl at work... and I was still struggling.

This is just pre-algebra, too. Hahaha. This fall I take math prep 2 -- Intro. to Algebra, and in the spring I take Intermediate Algebra... then *only* do I get to take the two required *college-level* courses. Geez.

So until Thursday afternoon, I will be reviewing the Summary and Review and Chapter Test at the end of each chapter, as well as the Cumulative Review at the end of each chapter from chapter 2 onwards. Finally, I will work on the last Cumulative Review at the end of the book, and last but not least the Final Exam from the book. (Our actual final exam isn't from the book but a state-made test.)

And all this effort is just for one class that's not supposed to be terribly difficult!

Of course, I only did so well in my nutrition class because it was online, and Christmas tree'd my way through the quizzes (treated it like open-book even though I don't think we were supposed to *eek!*). I probably would have done well anyway, I love reading more in depth about nutrition and (in particular) the human body. If only I had the attention span to read like I used to. Because the summer is 4 weeks shorter than fall or spring, we (more often than not) had two chapters to read in a week. Which is a lot when you're dealing with technical terms in a nutrition text, but I digress.

Anyway, guess where I'm going for a week beginning on Saturday? To visit lin_bai_mao and her fiancee wangxiangyung in Alabama, yay!! XD "Alabama???", you say? Well, they're awesome people in a less-than-awesome state, so :P. I'm really looking forward to visiting, it's almost been 3 years since I've seen them. :) I'll be in-between semesters, so it's the only time it's feasible for me to get away with a week-long trip. (I'm going to Canada for Christmas, so...) I do make frequent weekend trips to Tampa (or vice-versa), so I save the *really good* week-long trips for breaks from school. :D I'll have to take (good) pictures; I wonder if my buttface of a "boyfriend" will let me borrow his digital camera (which I technically paid for). *bounces* Wuv yew, Yuki~na. ;) *bounce bounce bounce*

I took a nutrition course as well - it was very hard because the professor was tough, but I learned so much! It's actually a very interesting topic to get into, especially since our knowledge of food and it's benefits (or lack thereof) seem to change almost daily! :)
