Back to School, Back to Reality | Spring 2016

Hello Beautiful People!

Classes started back up on Tuesday. This semester I am taking the normal course load of four classes, technically five if I count my biology lab. When it comes to blogging I am going to try my hardest to have content posted twice a week. Right now I am aiming for Mondays and Thursdays. In other news… I caught a virus, the doctor suspects it’s the flu. I’ve been feeling like major poopy these past few days. This semester I only have three main goals and I plan on sticking to them all. Enjoy!

Grades

As I’ve stated above, I am taking four (technically five) classes this semester. I am nervous to say the least. Here are the classes I am taking and my goals for each:
Contemporary Bioscience w/ Lab: This is Your Brain on Drugs: This biology class is for the non-bio majors. People at my school refer to it as “Disney Bio” because it significantly easier than Biology 101. So far I really like the professor so this class should be a good time. I am aiming for an A but I would be okay with a B as well.
Math for Teachers II: I don’t know much about this course but I would like to get an A. It’s a class I need to take for my educational studies minor.
Intermediate Microeconomics: This is the class I dropped last semester *sigh*. I signed up with a different professor and I know she has a more math-based approach so I am looking forward to that. So far she seems very sweet and enthusiastic about the course. I consider myself a math person. I want to pull a C, if I do better than that I will be over the moon.
Economic Statistics: So far I like the class and the professor. I think this class will be a lot of work but I think I can do it. I want to get at least a B in this class.

Food

Guys… I’VE GONE VEGAN (I’ve only been vegan for four days so far)! Over the past few weeks I’ve been researching veganism quite a bit and I came to the conclusion that I want to give it a try. For those of you who don’t know what veganism is it’s basically abstaining from the use of animal products in your diet. I can do a whole post for you guys about my reasons behind going vegan if you would like. I feel like I have WAY too much to say and it would take away from my semester goals. Leave me a comment if you would like to hear more about my vegan journey. 🙂

Money

Last semester I had a goal of only spending $100 a month. It was hard… way harder than I thought. This seamster I am upping my budget to $150 a month and I think that little extra bit of wiggle room will help me out immensely. I’ve become very money conscious and I really enjoy how I’m going into second semester with the same amount of money I went into fall semester with (from working over the winter break). I feel so grateful that my dad does finance for a living so he can guide me into the right directon. If you want a post all about how to handle your finances as a college student leave me a comment and let me know!
