After that story that I recently published, I didn’t get comments or likes or visitors, WAS IT THAT BAD?? It might have been PG-13 or some might say 18+ but I wrote it quickly.It actually took me around 3 hours. So, I would really like to read some feedback, or I might quit play writing for good. (Thank God it’s not my major, or I might have flunked out from day 1!)
Anyways, back to real life. I know I haven’t wrote in a while, but every time I want to write, I get distracted or even lose the idea immediately. That’s what’s happening right now. I’m rambling on and on about nothing in particular. School is amazing. (& if you’re new to my blog I’m starting my Masters degree in Plant Science and Environment) The Doctors are very helpful and want us to take every opportunity possible from workshops, to researches, to even being easy to talk to and discuss further educational roads.
It might be probably because I love what I’m doing. I love working in the Environmental field, I love plants, I love learning this stuff. Ever since we were little kids, they’d teach us about organs and different systems of the body… and that’s it. I fell in love with ecology and environment ever since I took in my final year B.S. Biology, Plant physiology and Ecology (2 separate courses) and I fell in love with them. It’s like I knew I wouldn’t succeed in nothing other than that. and I NEVER skipped a class (so that must count for something). It was different. It was fun. It was relatable. It was something I would excel in and love doing. So I went for it. and now I’m sowing the results of my work: I’m getting good grades. It feels good that our graduating class of 160 people(french and english), only 30 are in this masters department. I might jinx myself by saying that, but I might have a chance to get into Phytoecology or Hydroscience next year! (PLEASE GOD! I’LL BE GOOD BUT I WANT EITHER OF THESE). I might have applied to “Applied Plant Biotechnology” but I didn’t take a course Phytopathology that would let me be a candidate to this program.
Oh! Did I mention I love my courses?! I’m taking this semester as electives: Hydrogeology, which is AH-MAZ-ING!! How cool is it to learn about groundwater movement and fighting off it’s contamination, because it’s harder to clean when contaminated. Also I’m taking water quality and primary producers (DIATOMS! DIATOMS EVERYWHERE!!). and also Biogeochemical Analysis Techniques. It’s way too long of a name and could be easily summarized by all analysis techniques from Spectrometery to Chromatography and learning about their mechanisms. As for Obligatory courses; am taking Plant Biotechnology, the same doctor that taught me in Plant physiology, and that was my primary inspiration for going into this Masters Program, and Biodiversity. My primary goal was going into the Biodiversity masters: conservation of Natural Resources, and after discussing my passion with the doctor he told me to pursue phytoecology because it was closer to my dream since the french aristocratic committee gives 90% of seats to it’s students (frenchies) and 10% to all other. so there are 10 seats and i’d be fighting with a lot of students for “1” seat.
So yeah! As for this semester, my plan is:
- Get good grades
- get better in presentation skills (because my typing is as fast as my speaking)
- Finish and submit a biodiversity poster about Rana Muscosa, a frog that works on 3 trophic levels in it’s life cycle, and it’s endangered
- increase my connections with my doctors, cause who knows. I might apply to harvard some where in the far future. (Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue~ RAMBLING!)
- Try my best to not to compete with others, because it won’t get me anywhere than heart pain
- Just survive!
So I hope I might remember to blog again soon before the new year probably. Oh yeah! My sister is coming in less than 12 days! I’ve missed her way to much (she’s my only other sibling) – Life at home sucks without bickering with her.
I’ll be back
