My targets are General Chemistry and Biology. Since it’s free, why not give it a try?
I am sure it will be a good way to prepare for the next step: medicine.
Both courses include a lab course (3x2h class a week) in addition to the lectures. To be honest I am not quite sure how I am going to handle working nights with such an intense school timetable. But I’ll do my very best to try. And if it comes to a point where I must drop a subject, it will be biology.
When you want to take a couple of subjects you are on your own for the most part. The full-time students hang out together all the time and it’s quite easy to just be left out.
So I decided to go visit the chemistry department at UiO yesterday. I actually joined the activities they had prepared for the first year students and it was a lot of fun. Moreover, I got to talk to a bunch of nerds (awkward). How cool is that?
The thing in the chemistry department is that they’re proud of being nerds. Really proud which is surprisingly nice.
One guy just couldn’t hold it ‘What is 2 atoms of hydrogen and 1 atom of oxygen together? A molecule of water. What are two molecules of water? A water war.’. Nobody laughed except him.
On Monday I’ll be there for the very first lecture and I am super excited about it. I think it’s gonna be great to get to work my brain out. I really miss being a student in the sense that you challenge your knowledge all the time.
At work. Oh. Some jobs can really stupidify you. Mine included.
