Oh, but atleast you'll be nearly done... My advisor told me to take Microbiology when I had an easy semester. Hopefully this semester will be that way. I've just heard that Micro is extremely hard. I guess I'll find out. After this semester, I'll need 4 more classes plus I still have nursing classes left. Oh well.

You know what sucks more than buying books? It's when you pay the exact amount that's on your tuition bill, then a few days later you check to make sure it went through... and it tells you that you still owe money. WTF?!

Yeah, mine did too. That's just cuz I'm taking more hours this semester and I have some fee to pay for taking an online class. But, I just thought it was weird that it says I still owe money.... I mean I paid the correct amount that was on my tuition bill.

Oooo. Linear algebra. Now there is a rivoting class. Same with compiler. Did you have to take any Discrete Math? now there was a real thriller.

Man, I don't miss my college days. Pay all that money to learn stuff that odds are you aren't ever going to use in real life. The only thing I got out of my college degree was programming logic and analysis & design. All the rest (coding standards, processes, and software development life cycle stuff) does not apply in the real world. Oh, and I have yet to use anything related to biology, chemistry, or american history...all of which they forced me to take. Funs stuff.
