Alrighty so I’m on the train ride back to UMass, and I couldn’t be more excited. My academic probation has allowed me to really see what I need to do in order to do well and get good grades. I am retaking Biology and Chemistry with different professors this semester and taking a required writing course. I can take one more class, and although I would LOVE to take Ansci 103 after I took 101 last sem, I need to realize that I can’t juggle three science courses again just yet. So I am really going to focus on not JUST doing well but going above and beyond my academic requirements and capabilities. Im just scared that I will resort to my old ways and SAY but not DO.
Sometimes, these are the sacrifices you have to make as an AnSci major. It’s hard. There are people in rougher positions than I am in, I know that. But right not I just need to focus on myself and my future.
As for inspiration, I think I might take up volunteering at the barn in Hadley. I would have to wake up fairly early on the weekends, yes, but I think that doing so would keep me focused on the major and my future. I am also going to shadow a vet (if I can find a ride) and hopefully try to get a job there once something opens up.
I already have a lot on my plate, I know!! But this blog is really helping me get my shit together and get my future together so thanks for following!
