Finding the right major

Here it is another college post. My life is basically college right now and the classes required for my major require constant reading and studying. If anyone did not know I am a microbiology and immunology major. So getting a double degree is really challenging and also something I really wanted to do.

I want to talk about how I decide what my major was going to be. Deciding a major was not easy and I have changed my major a few times. For anyone who is a college freshman or going to college it is okay to change your major if you find you do not love the major like you thought you would. I did it and I finally found something I could picture myself having a career in and doing for most of my life. I had always wanted to work at NASA when I was younger and I recently found out that they hire microbiologist so someday I could end up in my dream job.

There are so many opportunities for each and every major out there. Finding the right major for you consists of many things. For me it was do I love it, am I going to enjoy doing this for my career, and finally can I see myself doing this. If find a major and you can see yourself doing that career than go for it. It may not be easy, the classes might not be what you thought they would be, you may hate your professors. In the end it will all work out because you will be doing what you love.

 

On My Mind

I am so done with the summer weather and I want fall to be here already. Where I live it is in the triple digits and humid . I love fall because of the weather, clothes, and all the different foods.  Fall is my favorite season.

Also I have been engrossed by the Olympics. I have been watching swimming and gymnastics. The Olympics are one of my favorite sporting events so I always watch them. I finally watched the mens soccer( Go Germany sorry USA).

Hiatus

I have not published anything for 6 months because of school. I am a microbiology major and there is a lot of work involved. I finish my last class for the summer tomorrow and then I will be on regularly. Life has been so hectic and this is on the back burner for now.

College tips

I am now in my second semester in college and I wanted to share some of the tips I have learned from my first semester.

Books:

  • Rent them if all possible this saves a huge amount of money.
  • Always buy used unless it needs an access code
  • If you need an access code colleges have them and the book in a bundle

Mornings:

  • I always have my clothes picked out the night before. It helps make the mornings easier.
  • Make a good breakfast such as oatmeal, eggs, or yogurt.
  • Wake up at least 1 hour before hand so you have enough time to do everything you need to.
  • Make tea or coffee to wake you up
  • Make lunch if staying at school for a long time it is cheaper than college food.

In class:

  • Make sure to take good notes
  • ask question
  • write all upcoming assignments in a planner
  • pay attention

Study habits:

  • make notecards
  • use quizlet
  • review daily
  • don’t procrastinate

Happy New Year!

For my last day of 2015 I went to my favorite Asian restaurant and to the art muesum. Later more of my family is going to come over and eat pizza. Then we are going to play games and ring in the new year. Despite the festivities I am already planning out the next few months for college , this blog, and my book blog. Here’s to a great new year.
