Summer Semester 2012 – Chemistry II

Posted August 8, 2012

This past semester, I took General Chemistry II. The original plan was to take both General Chemistry II and Historical Geology, but due to Blinn College possessing enough irresponsibility to not update my transcript, I was only able to take one class. Chem II is what I should have taken back during the Spring 2011 semester, but instead I foolishly decided to take Physics and set myself at an academic low. Another concern was that I remembered absolutely nothing from taking Chem I during Fall 2010. Well, the class is over now, and needless to say, it wasn’t that bad. I passed without putting too much effort into it. A good 80% of it was calculation-based, and all of the hard work that I put into Calculus for the past year made it feel more like a cake walk. I struggled mainly with the principles and concepts of Chemistry, especially when it got into Organic Chemistry. It was very… uninteresting. My attention span was no greater than that of a dog. But at least I understand what it means when people are taking O-Chem and they’re drawing all of those weird honeycomb shapes.

Degree plan has been updated to reflect these changes. I realize that I have come to a small situation. After this academic school year ends, I will be close to completing my Math minor, but nowhere near close to finishing my Computer Science major. Do I want to just take additional Math courses to fill in the remaining gaps of my degree plan, or do I want to pursue a second Minor? It wouldn’t take too much longer and I would be able to still graduate by 2014. The question is, what minor would I want to take? Business? I don’t know. I’ll have to wait and see.

Fall 2012, here I come! I cannot put into words how ecstatic I am for this upcoming semester!
