Well you’ve heard my thoughts all semester. My classes were tough. I was stressed. I did schoolwork nonstop. But you haven’t heard me say how proud I am of myself and that this semester was actually a huge confidence booster. I studied like crazy and it paid off. My final grades:

Principles of Human Physiology- A

Virtual Physiology Lab- A+

Fundamentals of Organic Chemistry- A+

Organic Chemistry Lab- A+

Community Nutrition Planning and Evaluation- A

These are hard science classes (hard meaning physical, although I suppose difficult is also appropriate here) and I still did really well. My advisor told me the physiology class at my school is notoriously difficult and I was warned about the difficulty of organic chemistry by multiple people. I’m not pursuing my RD right now because of other priorities but this semester was a huge reassurance that if and when I do decide to, I’ll be more than capable of handling the classes.

And a big thank you to Ryan and my mom for listening to me vent, whine, and swear I was going to fail all semester. I couldn’t have made it through the semester without them.

    Congratulations! I am a scientist, so I appreciate the difficulty of your classes. If asked, I would encourage you to continue, but you know best. You are obviously a perfectionist! Know that it is ok to get a “B”. This is the same advice I gave my daughter during college (she is a CPA).

      Thanks Kate! I am a perfectionist and know it contributes to a lot of my stress but it’s a hard habit to break. I appreciate your encouragement but I have a pretty good reason to switch back to my original program. I’ll be sharing more hopefully later this week.

    Very proud of you! I know it was a tough semester but you pushed through and gave it your all! Now maybe you’ll believe in your abilities a little more.
