Taking high school all over again

    Oh my god im taking all of high school all over again all at the same time as far as science goes. Biology, chemistry, physics, math! And its kicking my ass all over campus.

    What i hate:

    Physics: nothing, except i want to jump out the window because of all the crap our professor makes us do and she just surprises you at any moment by going "oh yah and derive this by wednesday". She also wants diagrams of everything, even things that you cant possibly imagine having a diagram associated with it.

    Biology: nothing i can derive, everything to memorize, nothing from the book :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

    Chemistry: It all seems random!!!! It's like some omnipotent force is just taking a formula-wizz on me with no rhyme or reason. I mean with physics, you get the lorentz transformations and you can go to town! But not this crap.

    Math: Can anything good be said about it? Oh yah, one thing, a low flying airplane made a racket one day and i was hoping it was going to slam into our building and kill us all.

    :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

    I thought you knew Physics hands down.

    You seem to participate often enough down in the Physics forums.

    Are you in high school right now?

    I'm also perplexed by your post.
    Are you still in high school or having the high school experience again? :\

    He means, imo, that he is covering all of what he covered in high school in one semester of college. Meaning that he is taking biology, chemistry, physics, and math all in one semester, and he is finding it difficult.

    Is the young penguin fellow already in college?

    biology gets worse, I absolutely HATED botany and zoology, which I thought I would enjoy. How many different sponges and worms do we really need to know about? I wanted to learn about monkeys.

    why did I spend half the semester learning about sponges? I mean, you seen one sponge you've seen one sponge. I felt like we were learning sponge's on a first name basis. This sponge is Bob. This identical sponge is Joe. this sponge which appears to be exactly like the other two is Angela.

    Are you nuts? I was fascinated that that little crap is not only organic, but I could rub my back with it! :bugeye:

    No, but seriously.. zoology lab was a fascinating time for me. Sometimes I wish I havent dropped out, but then there are the other times.

    When I think back to all my college classes I realize that I didn't enjoy most of the classes in science and math. Which I thought of as my favorite subjects. The class I enjoyed the most and looked forward to was a short story class.

    Mine was philosophy of quantum mechanics. I've realized that although I appreciate the insight math and science gives me, there are things out there I'd rather be doing - being a musician, sailing around the world, scba diving, jumping with a parachute.. the list goes on, but I suppose in the end you'll say grow up dude, those are just dreams and illusions wrapped in selfish view of the world. I say you right, but then again who knows if at the end I wont have found what I really wanted to be doing and saved a whole lot of time through the process. I also liked mechanical engineering but mostly because I thought I'd be able to build my own things (rockets, submarines, sailboats, cars, etc). The world is rarely driven by selfish people, and foresight of that is a gnawing burden.

    what the hell are you talking about? You should have taken some public speaking classes, or maybe some "what's your point" classes.

    I don't know, I always thought the acorn worm was an amusing little creature that I'd have never known about if it hadn't been for biology classes. The classes I taught never forgot that one either after I popped a picture of it up on a slide. :biggrin:

    Yah, my first year of HS was physics, 2nd was biology, 3rd was chemistry, 4th physics again... and math all during that... and right now my schedule in college is just all of those subjects crammed down my throat again all at once for this semester. I hate my bio class so much. Most of the material is out of the lecture and im at that point where i could probably learn everything that class gives out in 5 days but i wont be able to unless i actually go to the lectures! And theres 250 people in there! You know how hard it is to switch out 500 people (same class after)
