Med Chem Math

I know you are all probably sick of hearing about med chem, but this will be the last post on the subject. Hopefully. Probably. We'll see.

310 flash cards
174 pages of notes
42 hours in class
4 problem sets
4 old/practice tests
Several book problems (I forgot to count them)
50 billion hours of studying (I didn't count these either--this is just an estimate)
+4 tests (including a TWENTY-FIVE page final)
1 A!!!!

Yes, I got an A in med chem! Hooray! Is it sick that I wanted to count all of this up? (Or at least the flash cards and pages of notes.) Probably. But I did it anyways. I think this is the only class I've taken that I thought from the beginning "I'm going to put in some effort here." I know I've worked in my other classes, but it seemed like I was doing it on a test-by-test, oh-crap-I-probably-need-to-do-this-now basis. Not exactly setting myself up for success there. For this class, I actually tried. Huh--what a concept.

You know, I just looked at my "unofficial" transcript. ***Warning--I'm about to brag a bit more, sorry.*** I only got 1 B and 2 B+'s in my 4 years in college. (And only 2 A-'s.) The rest were A's or A+'s.

How on earth did that happen?

Well, for one, I did do some work, even though most of the time I feel so lazy. (Maybe I should have done that tally for all of my classes...) But really, I know a large part of it is because I have been extremely blessed. I know I've posted about this before, but it's still true. Prayer is an amazing thing. I don't even know how many times I pray before a test, but it always gives me peace. I have received so much help and I am so grateful to my Heavenly Father for that.

So, I'm officially graduated! Summa cum laude, too. Oh, and with all of my easy classes this semester, I got my cumulative GPA back up to 4.0! (Haha--I haven't even really looked at my GPA until recently. I kind of forgot about it for a while.) So, yay for me and everyone else who has ever gone to school! Keep learning my friends!
