More than a passing grade

Well, finished up yet another semester at Platteville, but still not a graduate quite yet; only a couple more classes to go before that can be a reality. This past semester was another rough one though, for a few reasons:

  • I missed out on the Fall semester prior, so it took me some time to get back into the school mindset again.
  • I ended up switching out one class with one called “Personalized Learning Experience,” which I’ll go more into detail later.
  • Between this new course and my other courses, I ended up getting piled on with projects, along with preparing for any exams or quizzes.
  • There were also some life issues that occurred throughout the semester; so those didn’t help any.

However, I am glad that I did pass most of my classes and my GPA hardly changed. I am also happy at the response I got from my advisor about the paper I wrote for my Personalized Learning Experience (PLE) course. All I did for this course was picked a topic, researched it, and wrote a paper on it. If I did it and did it well, I passed; if I didn’t do it well, or not at all, I failed. What I ended up getting was more than a passing grade; I got an opportunity. Continue reading

Ornithology class outing to Mound View Park

On occasion, I have the opportunity to go on bird outings with my Ornithology class. We are required to write and submit three field journal entries as part of the course, whether it be from our own observations or during a class outing. Since this would typically be something I’d post on this blog, I figured I’d share this with you guys verbatim. There were some requirements to the assignment, one of them being to give the proper common and scientific names of any birds we mention. Other than that, this is a nice and causal assignment that I thoroughly enjoyed writing.

Hope you all enjoy and possibly learn a little something while reading this! Continue reading

I’ve been meaning to give you guys a life update of sorts, considering the last one was when me and my boyfriend went on our second date. Not a whole lot has been happening on that front, but a lot of other stuff’s happened since then. Continue reading

Well, the first day for quite some time where I won’t know what to do with myself now that the semester’s pretty much done with; all I have left are a couple finals. It was a pretty lazy day today, but not that lazy.

I hung out with Ben for a bit today early afternoon and had brunch, though there was something I wanted to ask him that got me worried for, honestly, no reason in particular. I asked him if I creeped him out, for a few reasons:

  • Some of my actions I tend to do around him
  • The random crap I say
  • The fact that I still have a pretty hard crush on him

I know it was kind of a dumb thing to ask, I was just worried that I’ll ruin another friendship because I have a crush on them. But, he told me I didn’t, just that I annoy him the same way his brothers do to him. In fact…I think he even considers me a brother, and at least he knows what it’s like to have brothers. Also, I’m apparently the only one who wants to hang out with him the most, even though he knows a ton of people. With all this in mind, I think our friendship’s gonna get interesting.

After spending some time with Ben, I pretty much just bummed around outside for the rest of the afternoon. Honestly, at this point, I don’t have anything else better to do, and I didn’t want to be sitting in my room all day (it was really nice out).

Later this evening, I hung out with Joe for a bit. I figured Ben was going to be busy anyway, and I figured all my other friends were busy all day as well, especially with graduation happening today. I decided to work on this post and a bit of my other writing.

With it being the week before Spring break, I was really itching to get home and away from college for a while; needless to say, I got a bit crazy as the week went on. But when I got home though, I gained back my sanity. More details on pre-Spring break week
