    Memoirs of a Mustang: Generally Speaking (About 3rd Year)

    Post by Cephalo the Pod on Thu 23 Jun 2016, 6:45 pm

    I, uh...I fucked up.

    So back in September 2014, I was living on Regent St. and entering my third year of Chemical Engineering. Back at the end of 2nd Year, I selected which specific kind of Chem. Eng. with which I wanted to continue: General Chemical (hence the subtitle).

    At the end of the year, not only had I failed to even start a journal, I had failed three courses and ended up with an insufficient average to even move on to 4th Year. The 2014-2015 was basically a barren year where nothing worthwhile happened to me. I couldn't even make an effort to contribute to the new Piano Club I had joined.

    The past year went remarkably better. My average is now back up in the 70s. I joined a new new club (Trivia Club) that's a lot of fun. And I'm living in a gorgeous house which I don't have to leave whenever roommates move out.

    Still didn't make a journal. So, I mean, if you guys have any questions about the past two years, I, uh...I can answer them here.

    I joined Trivia Club this past year. It was great. Kinda small group in the end, but it's just plain fun talking about random shit with them.

    Not about (either) 3rd year.

    So for 4th year, I get to pick four technical electives (technically, two of those electives were filled in with a full-year research course that I was free to replace). I had seven options to go with, and ultimately selected:

    Pharmaceutical Processes (1st semester).
    Catalytic Processes (1st semester).
    Computer Process Controls (2nd semester).
    Nanobiotechnology (2nd semester).

    This year is gonna be tight.
    I also get one non-technical elective. I should get to picking that.

    those all sound really up my ally. aka they all sound interesting.

    i'm sure the curriculum will try to dull the topics with pages upon pages of technical grinding, however

    Not sure what you mean by "technical grinding". Or by "pages and pages" of it.

    AAA-frica! Shit, does anybody even remember Dr. Rabbit?

    Closer to settling that course conflict. ALSO! Finally decided on my non-technical elective! I think.

    Geography of Africa Below the Sahara. I knew I wanted to do something in History or Geography (or Economics, but a lot of the classes were already full). It was mainly between Africa (the only good-looking Geography course available to me) and Roman Cities.
