What’s Up in Wolman 3 East

Name: Tabitha Moses

Year: Class of 2011

Hometown: England

Major: Neuroscience

So, I have a blog to write, and I have no idea what to write about, so I think I’ll just write what’s going on in my head! I am currently sitting in my common room – Wolman 3 East, the best freshman dorm. Will and Grace is on in the background and I’m debating whether or not to make myself some tea.

Coming up is the last week before reading week, and I am debating making a list of things that I want to get done by the end of the week but something tells me that might be a bit depressing! Okay, so I’m making it sound bad, like I have a lot to do, and I do have a lot to do, but it really isn’t too bad, especially if I try and do some of my work before the day it’s due. Amazing really, you would have thought I could have learned that in high school!

One of my major problems at the moment with work is the fact that one of the books I have to read, for Philosophy of the Mind, is really interesting, so I just keep reading that, and not doing the other work I’m meant to be doing! At first I thought it was a good thing. I have the philosophy that it doesn’t matter what work I’m doing as long as I’m doing some work, but now I have a load of other work that I really need to do. I guess it’s a good thing though, that I’m enjoying my class I mean. I’m really looking forward to next semester’s classes, I’m taking:

Calculus II – okay, so not so much looking forward to this, but it is a pre-med requirement and a requirement for the Neuroscience major.

Cognition – it’s apparently very similar to Introduction to Cognitive Psychology, which I’d wanted to take this semester, but didn’t have space for, so I’m glad I can take something like it.

Expository Writing – I really need a writing course, and this one is on ethics and science, which I enjoy learning about, so it will be good!

Cognitive Neuroscience – another course that I really liked the sound of, it explores the brain and how it carries out mental processes.

Introduction to History of Modern Philosophy – this course sounded really interesting and we read philosophers who I have heard my friends talk about and wanted to learn about, so I’m really looking forward to it!

I’m not doing intersession this year, Halloween_allalthough it did sound great, but I haven’t been home (England) in 3 months, and figure a few weeks with my friends will be good. I plan on going to stay with a couple of friends at their universities, and see how they compare. Maybe next semester I’ll write about how they compare!

Well, a couple of friends have just come into the common room to find out if I want to go to dinner. Something tells me dinner is better than studying! So, I’m off to the FFC (fresh food café) to see if they have anything good.
