If it hasn’t become evident from my rather long blog posts, I like to think a lot (and thus ramble and write a lot). So it comes time to reflect on the events of my sophomore year, the highs and lows, and everything that I hope for the future.
This past year has been quite interesting, filled with so many joys and challenges. I am so glad I survived Chem 3B and lab because those two classes basically took up all of my time. Bio 1A and lab are also proving to be very challenging classes, but as I discovered, no matter how tough the lab is, I have to say that it is one of my favorite classes of all time. I had a great UGSI, and an amazing GSI. Plus, my lab itself was really hilarious. I’ve never laughed so hard during lab; the people and the environment they created helped me through the night lab. Oh, and I didn’t think I would enjoy dissecting a rat, crayfish, etc. and holding snakes, a chinchilla, a tarantula, and all of these cool organisms!!!
Taking Theater 121 has been such a rewarding experience; being in a class filled with outspoken theater students is definitely much different than in a class of science students. And I just loved the topics and the plays that we read – this class absolutely opened up my mind to so many ideas and concepts about all kinds of issues in the world, especially those dealing with Asian-Americans. If anyone needs any suggestions as to what Asian-American plays to read, I can definitely recommend some.
Being part of PAL has been such an amazing, wonderful, spectacular, and heartwarming experience. I got to meet to new people and make new friends as well as help others. It’s what I love about this college – it is definitely a community. I am so excited to be part of this group and see what PALs can do in the future. But I’m sad to say goodbye to those seniors that I’ve gotten to know. I wish the best for every one of you in all of your endeavors.
As for the future, I can’t wait to take some upper division classes and start with research. It’s definitely going to be fun.
I did want to mention one last thing. Although classes and activities make up such a huge part of our lives, outside events do too. Two words: Virginia Tech. So many things can be said about this tragic event, but it’s something that we cannot forget.
I hope that everyone had an interesting if not fun year! Have a great summer!
