I think I’ve decided on how the last two years of college are going to go for me. I’m going to actually do two years instead of a year and a half. I could finish in a year and a half, but in order to do that I’d be pushing myself to or even over my limit. It would require taking around 18 units each semester, and most of those being upper level science courses. And I wouldn’t be able to minor in Japanese like I want to because I wouldn’t be able to fit 202 in my final semester. Taking the full amount of time, along with meaning I have to pack fewer courses in each semester, also means I’ll be able to study harder for the courses I take each semester. I need to seriously improve my GPA if I want to go to grad school, which I do. I’m hoping I’ll be able to get it high enough. I think it’s a possibility, now that I have more drive. For the first two years I was doing what my parents wanted me to do, majoring in pre-pharmacy, and it was very clear I didn’t have any motivation, especially not like the others in the major. But now that I switched to something I really enjoy and am taking classes that pertain more to my interests I think I can turn my grades around closer to what they were in high school.
And as for the title, and icon, I want my kitties. They still haven’t come down to live with me yet, because I don’t have the money for the pet deposit. My loan finally dispersed into my bank account, but that is strictly for rent money, not for the pet deposit. I want them down here, it’s so lonely by myself.Tags: cats, college

You switched your major? And your parents wanted you to major in pre-pharmacy? Why pre-pharmacy?

They wanted me to because pharmacists make bank, like 80k just getting out of school, around 100k with experience. Although that money would be awesome, if I do grad school as well, which I plan on doing, I’ll probably start off at around 65-70k a year, getting up to about 80k a year with experience.
