just a little FMI (for my information)

Somewhat related to my last post -which was surprisingly popular, despite its length- I took my first final today and got a hundred percent!!! Woot woot! And it was probably the most boring course I'll have: Issues of a Consulting Practice. To tell you the truth, I've been enrolled for an entire year now and I've been procrastinating the entire time. It was taking me forever to get through this text. Don't get me wrong, it was informative and all, but after a while it started sounding the same and it just became a chore. Well finally, a couple of days ago I had decided that I had had enough of my ridiculousness and that it really was time for me to take my degree seriously. So I looked into what was actually required of me in this course, and all I had to do was a final! No projects, no essays, nothing but a 20 question open-book-if-you'd-like final exam! After whacking myself in the head a few times, I sat down and took the test in less than four minutes. Such a "Duh Beth!" moment.

Anyway, so now that that's done and out of the way, I went ahead and ordered my texts for my next course, Cancer: Prevention & Politics. I'm not terribly excited for it, just because I don't like reading up on legal schmegal issues (like with the class before) or politics. It's just daunting, as necessary as it is. Good thing I'm not the one being fitted as a lawyer! Thanks honey.

But I am really looking forward to the rest of my classes:
  • Fundamentals of Nutrition
  • Nutrition and Disease Prevention
  • Nutritional Therapies
  • Anatomy & Physiology
  • Enzymatic Nutritional Therapies
  • Nutrition for Women
  • Holistic Human Development I
  • Holistic Human Development II
  • Antioxidants
  • Weight Management
  • Plus 2-4 electives, depending on whether or not I want to write a thesis (yuck).
Nice thing is I was able to transfer my previous Biology and Chemistry credits. I probably could have had the Anat. & Phys. waved, too, but I'm really interested to (re)learn about the human body from a more holistic approach. Seriously, this stuff thrills me and I'm off to a good start (finally)!

So yeah. Go me! *B
ETA: I just noticed how much I used the word "really" in this post. Hmm, what does that mean?
