Vacation over, back to saltmines

Back to the saltmines!

First day of school…………. I’m majoring in Molecular Microbiology, and the courses I’m  taking this semester are Chemistry ( my third  Chem., which is Inorganic Chem. ) Histology, Genetics, and Music ( which is actually Intensive Writing, my last non- Science course ). I really don’t know if I can squeeze in my part – time job this semester. My classes start at 10 AM and ends at 6:15 PM, with at least 3 to 4 hours of break in between.  Why can’t the university offer more science classes ? I’m supposed to graduate this year, but there were at least 2 semesters when I couldn’;t get the courses that I needed, and these courses were pre-requisite courses, that is, I have to take these courses before I can proceed to the next level. What’s worse, some of the courses are offered every other semester. And that means, if I missed one, I have to wait one year before I could take it. And that means, it would further delay my graduation. And that means, it would take a few more years before I could get a real job. And that means, I’ll be broke ’til then. ( =_=) My parents promised they’d take care of everything, my daily expenses, etc. and not to worry anymore. But, I really can’t ask for every little thing, like cosmetics, ( ^__^),  that cute shirt, and most importantly, lunch money. I can’t skip lunch coz I get dizzy and have terrible migraines when I’m hungry.

My brother just got assigned to work in San Francisco and he starts on Feb. 1. He’s now frantically looking for a place to live, one that is inexpensive and close to the jobsite.  San Francisco is one of the most expensive places to live in the whole of USA.  A  relative  pays $1,700 a month for a one bedroom apartment in San Francisco.  My brother is a Mechanical Engineer who graduated with honors (  I never saw him study when he was a student, but still got straight A’s ), and has a high-paying job, but he says his salary’s not enough to live comfortably in Frisco. For him, $9,000 a month is not enough. Aargh.  Some people are happy to get half of that.  

About my video game playing time…. ouch !  I didn’t get to finish God of War 3 this weekend.  But, I’m happy that my friend, Phio-chan, has started playing Persona 3 . I’ve been nagging her to play this game since forever.   I played that game for 600 hours ! LOL  I so loved that game  I actually crushed on the main character. Hahaha

Ahh, what else can I say? First  week of school! I wonder what’s in store for me.  Some girls are recruiting me to join a sorority. I don’t know. I asked my mother if  it was okay. Mom was a sorority girl in college, too. Anyways, she says it depends on the rules of the game. She doesn’t know how things are here in the US. Back in the Philippines, she says, it was a master- slave situation, and there were ” physical ” tests. One time , she had to eat a handful of these little chilies that were at one time, the hottest chili on Guiness Book of  Records. Mom said she almost passed out. The ” masters” also had a candle melt on her back.  (@_@)  Uhm, I don’t think I’ll join, though a classmate has been pestering me to join since last year. I don’t think I need more friends and as a future microbiologist , I don’t think I’d need ” social ” contacts. Mom said it would better my prospects if I joined Microbiology associations. Birds of the same feather and all that stuff.

Well, this is all for now. Be happy.

  1. Wow, how did you get such a messed up schedule like this? I start at 8am and am (usually) done at 6pm (but whoever scheduled this forgot a lunch break and I am still angry with this person, which I don’t even know).
    But inorganic chemistry is great! I just finished this course (well the first one at least).

    Have a marvellous semester!

    • Uhm, I’m trying to fix it…. lol

      I’m just grateful I was able to enroll in these courses. I was suppose to enroll in genetics last semester but only one class was open. I’m lucky to get in this semester, so the whacked schedule doesn’t matter, lol.

    I understand with the whole, “wait for a whole year BS”….that happend to me, BECAUSE, the teacher quit half way during the class because she couldn’t get a date from another teacher, whom was married….oh drama….because of that, I had to wait a whole new year, with a brand new teacher. (We did get our money back, but I was late on getting out of the area)

    But Good Luck!! I know you will do well.

    Now for sorority….I’d rather stay at home. Well I have no idea how they do the initiation in Cali, but here…its more like Hazing..hahahaha, but not all is a laugh. People think the men are bad, I think woman are worse. I think the last mild case, was shaving a woman’s head. The Extream, a woman being in the crazy house for a month (She got 5 years of college free for what they did) and a few others jail time for 3-6 year (Never to return to that college and a black mark on their record), a new group moved in and it calmed down alot. I also found it safer and cheaper to live at home. Do what your mother says and look into the group your going into, I hope I didn’t scare you girl.

  3. You should totally join the sorority. Just keep your moral standards up and don’t fall to any sort of thing you don’t want to do. The friendships that you will make are invaluable and you will cherish them for many years to come.

    • Thanks. But, really, I’m having second thoughts about joining. The courses I’m taking this semester have laboratories so I don’t know if I can find time to do stuff for the sorority if I do decide to join.

  4. I wish you the best of luck >D. Remember, no one can make you do anything you don’t wanna do! LOL on a side note I’m still working on God of War 1, does the series improve or more or less stay consistent?
