My prospective mentor visit went insanely well and he wants me in his lab. Now I just need to get into the program. I am hoping that my ace in the hole will be that hardly anybody knows about this tiny little brand-new program in Vancouver.
I registered for classes. I was torn about whether to maybe skip biochemistry in the Spring and just take something easy to meet my other science credits, ("Exploring Mars" is an actual class!) but my research adviser thinks I'll want biochemistry and she's never steered me wrong so far. So this Fall it's behavioral endocrinology, neurophysiology for biology majors, and physics. In the Spring it'll be biochemistry, recombinant DNA, Cell lab, and then holy shit I'm done with classes. Except I think I'm going to take Elementary Functions online over the summer while I'm writing my thesis, to get me ready for calculus.
Had my Ecology midterm today and it seemed to go pretty well except I flat-out forgot the rate of infectiousness equation.
