I want to hear what you all know about some different universities. I don’t want just some personal opinion about their football team, but rather some insight that would be valuable to consider in my decision making. Also if you have any knowledge regarding their Art History programs please share!
CSUF, UCI, UCSB, UCLA
so I’m currently listening to John MacArthur’s sermons on Anxiety free living.
So to try to add to my relief I will now proceed to vent….
The six week winter session just began yesterday.
Two of my textbooks haven’t arrived yet and the other I just found out I needed since it was only an hour ago that my professor called me to let me know she added me to the class.
9 units in 6 weeks. They say you should just do 3!
why do I do this to myself?
My first online class ever and its Ancient Art History. I remembered that I had a virtual lecture hall when it had already been in progress for 15 mins! I hadn’t even read the chapter let alone answer the questions the students and professor were discussing. EPIC FAILURE. I had gone to the library to take pictures of the chapter yesterday since I can’t checkout the text book and my copy hadn’t arrived yet and I still forgot! Hopefully I can get on top of it when my book comes!
Since its a short session I decided to take a counselling class that focuses on helping you figure out your values, skills, talents and how they can apply to finding a major/career that fits you well and that you will love. Although I have decided to major in Art History, I still think this class will be so beneficial and I know that my professor, who is also my counselor, knows what she is doing and can really help me. This class is really going to push me. It will cause me to be very introspective, push me to accept myself, have more self confidence, and see what I truly value. I also will have to occasionally face my fear of public speaking. I already have so many assignments but luckily she knows that we all haven’t gotten a hold of the textbook due to the fact that we all found out which one we needed yesterday. I’m supposed to find an article on someone that I think is successful and then we will share it in class tomorrow and analyze why we think these people are successful. I HAVE NO IDEA WHO TO RESEARCH! My idea of success doesn’t align with those who are in the public eye in today’s society.
Last, but definitely not the least SPEECH 101. I was on the wait-list for this class, but as I mentioned above my professor added me! I’m glad but I’m also scared out of my mind. This is the college course I’ve been literally dreading since high school! MY WORST FEAR in class form. I technically don’t need this course to transfer to a UC (University of California), but I do need it if I decided to go to a CAL STATE. I won’t know where I’ve been accepted till April so I’m taking this just in case and I know I need this. I want to overcome this. I don’t want to be a slave to fear any longer.
This will be a season of major personal growth and I pray that I will rely on the only One who can sustain me.
I belong to Him and He is sovereign. He does all things for my good and His glory.
Never in my college career (or academic career that I can remember) have I struggled so much in a class where it showed in my actual grade. It’s all due to this semester just being very off. I tend to only work well when the pressure is on high. Although I did take 15 units this semester, I am definitely a 16 unit and above kind of girl. I slacked off and just was over it all. Now because of my extreme laziness I’m just trying to pass a class rather than get an A! This was a very humbling course and semester overall. It made me realize that I was finding my worth in my academic achievements rather than in Christ alone. I definitely need to pray about this and battle it head on. So Lord whatever the outcome is of this College Algebra final help me to know it was Your will and You do all things for my good and Your glory.
Conquered my 6 week general Biology class!! Got a 70 out of 75 on my final!! And got an A overall! Wow still shocked! Not gonna lie in the beginning I was happy just to get a passing grade and I shed many tears. Not to mention I have the breakouts to prove my stress from the intensity!(oh ya and my professor is the same professor that teaches all the anatomy and physiology courses so he teaches his biology course very seriously in order to prep his students who are going into the medical field)
So relieved it’s all over but glad I got to meet the people I did. Now looking forward to my reward….
In three weeks it’s official my feet will touch the sands of the DOMINICAN REPUBLIC once again!!!!!!
So ironic that I blogged about wanting to go back about a month ago or so without even knowing this was in the works!
The Lord is so good to me and I absolutely don’t deserve it. To him be the glory!
I get to not worry about school although I do have a super busy day.
It’s going to take a while for this anxiety to stop haunting me about pending homework. I just hope it goes away so I can enjoy this upcoming week in Palm Springs.
So this was my semester:
Ethnic Studies 116
U.S. History 107
Art History 103
Dance History 201
As a whole I wrote 12 papers adding up to a total of 46 pages. That’s a small book!
Glad this won’t happen again until I transfer!
I struggled so much with time management and by the mercy of God came out on top. I aced 5 out of 6 finals (still don’t know the score of my last final but I know I at least passed). Also As on the majority of my papers and Bs on the other few. I would be so glad if I got a 4.0 but I’ll be content if I just keep my 3.7.
To God be the glory!
He is so merciful to me in very way possible! I can’t comprehend it!
Please allow me to do well these next two weeks. Help me to completely lean on YOU and not my own strength and knowledge. May I do this solely for your glory and not my own. Help me to constantly have Philippians 4:13 at the forefront of my mind.
