whats up everybody i just wanted to talk to you guys about a problem im having.i am currently a college student with 4.0 gpa. now this my sound great but ive just taken 30 credits of gen ed courses. not easy but not hard either. Spanish 1 and 2, intermediate algebra, sociology, gen biology lab etc. english 1 and english 2 anyway i was able to pass those classes by memorizing everything AND LIVING IN THE TUTORS OFFICES.. however i have no logic or common sense. now that im in chemistry and trig, its really starting to show. i am extremely lost in chem lab. i do not know what to do. and it seems i have an inability to comprehend anything. i will ask my chem, math, or bio teacher for help on things that everyone else easily understands. however as theyre explaining it im thinking to myself what the ? i dont understand still. at this point i feel embarrassed and just say i understand. i did stay after with my previous professors for a while after class, and thats the only way i got A's but ive been doing that for this semester and its not working. how can i have an incredible memory, yet no intelligence? i used to be a smart kid. not only did i have a memory, but i was good at math, and could think on higher levels then most of my peers. i can remember things, but i can not apply things or interpret results. i am basically a stupid person with a camera for a mind. whats worse is i want to be a doctor so i am a math/science major. i know there are different types of intelligence but i feel like i don't fall into any of those groups. i cant comprehend things verbally, i am terrible with pictures and graphs, im not good at music or sports, im not logically nor do i have an utter presences of common sense. i think i might be borderline retarded. im considering getting my IQ done, but i think I'm just gonna drop out of school. whats funny is i had a job at a Christmas tree store and i had trouble learning how to stock the shelves with the hands on jobs has. but yeah my dad wants me to be a doctor, but i dont think im up for it. how did i go from being a smart kid to a dumb adult? i did harder chemistry as a 9th grader successfully then i could do now porrly. i think ill just change majors and become a kidnergarden teacher.
