so i've finally figured out (more specifically that is) what i want to do with my life....

Environmental Field Research

with hopefully an emphasis in marine science but with the economy the way it is i feel like i won't get to be picky for a while.... plus i might have to learn to scuba dive first :-) mmmmmm

sometimes i don't think i can deferientiate between good & bad decisions.

& when i say sometimes i mean almost always.

this actually slightly worries me.

please stop regretting things.

it's a waste of time. time that could be spent being happy.

i wish it were that simple. at least when i make mistakes i make them at 100 miles per hour.

i still love you. how disgustingly pathetic is that? that is also a waste of time.

"... And after all that, however long all that may be, you'll go somewhere new. And you'll meet people who make you feel worthwhile again. And little pieces of your soul will finally come back. And all that fuzzy stuff, those years of your life that you wasted, that will eventually begin to fade."

this will go away. over time, all of this will go away. i just need to try to forget & it will all be okay.

i hate the realization of my mistakes. & the fact that i thought i had this oh so under control. & the fact that i was convinced that i wasn't making a dumb freshman mistake, the fact that i thought i could trust someone that i barely knew. & what i hate the most is that i didn't see this coming. at this point i just want closure. i just want to say what i need to say, but i get the feeling that i wil never be able to. which is so hard because i know that this will never be right, but i still wish i could do something, & you will always have these perceptions of me that are totally & completely wrong.

& even though you're not involved, even though you're not around, you are more a part of this than you will ever know. because the dumb stupid mistakes that i made months ago were because of you. they were because you & i weren't together, because i missed you because i was convinced i needed you because... because i loved you more than you will EVER be able to appreciate. so in a desperate attempt to get over you, i did stupid things. so right now when i'm paying for the repercussions for these stupid things, that like i said you techincally had nothing to do with i keep thinking of you. because although physically you weren't there, you didn't tell me what to do, i did these things because of you. ironic.

anyways.. i just need this to end. i have dug myself into a very deep whole. thank God to the fact that certain people are graduating..... & thank God that there's only a few weeks left to the semester. i think it's best if i just stay away from that boy... so basically i only have to last a few more weeks. & then i can be away from this horrible mess that i've created.

i hate guilt.

i need something new this summer. ideally, i would run away, get a temporary summer job, & just live at the beach. no cares, no worries, & on my own. that would be ammmazzzinnnggg. if i could ever get it to happen.

school. [Feb. 23rd, 2007|12:38 pm]
you can most likely ignore this... unless u feel like giving me life advice

so how is it that i am only in my second semester freshman year & already i'm concerned about not graduating on time? it doesn't help either that i decided to change my major like two weeks ago. i'm only going from environmental studies to environmental science but yeahhhh..... ;alkdjf;alksdjf;lasjkdflskdj. & okay even if the whole graduating on time isn't an issue am i going to have time to study abroad? & am i going to be able to go to the field station for a semester (that's not even an option, i AM going to do that) & not to mention that i have all these liberal arts classes that i have to take too! & the fact that i wanted to minor in something else or do a double major. i really wanted to do a double major but right now i'm concerned about being able to get all of my environmental science classes in & graduate on time & i'm slightly stressed. i just have to keep remembering that THIS is what i love. & this is what i want to do with the rest of my life & that's why i'm at a school that has an ammmazzzing science program. yeah, it's hard as hell. but it will be okay.

i want to take courses over the summer cuz i know that i can prollly get my math courses out of the way. but can i take math courses at penn state over the summer? cuz i think juniata would be more likely to accept math credits from penn state than racc but i don't know if i can take anything at racc that will transfer & ahhh!!!!!! any thoughts on my life?


Intro. to Environmental Science
Hydrology I
Senior Capstone Experience
Senior Capstone II

Biology II
Biology Lab II
Introduction to Geology
Introduction to Geology Lab

Three semesters of Chemistry with at least two semesters of lab*

Organic Chemistry Concepts I
Chemistry Lab 1

Organic Chemistry Concepts II*
Chemistry Lab II

Intro. to Bioinorganic Chemistry

One year of Physics with lab**

General Physics I
General Physics I


Introductory Physics I
Introductory Physics II


Physics Lab I
Physics Lab II

*Alternate sequences: OCCI, Physical Inorganic Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry (with labs as applicable), or, OCCI, Physical Inorganic Chemistry, Geochemistry of Natural Waters (with labs as applicable). These later two choices would be appropriate for students with interest in the physical environmental sciences (including geology). Chem and Art cannot be used for this requirement.
** Geophysics (GL 399) may be substituted for General Physics II.

Ecology Courses: The definition of 'environmental science' and the definition of 'ecology' differs only by one word: human. Many of the methods and approaches are the same, only the questions being asked may be different. Therefore an ecology course is central to an environmental science POE. Credits: 4 (these credits count towards Advanced Electives requirement)

Ecology Course (one of the following including laboratory):

General Ecology
General Ecology Laboratory

Plant Ecology & Systematics
Plant Ecology & Systematics Lab

Limnology Laboratory

Environmental Studies Electives: Three required. Credits: 9-10
AR 120

Art of Environmentalism
Economics of the Environment
Mining in The Americas
North American Environmental History
Introduction to Conflict Resolution
Intro. to Peace & Conflict Studies
Conflict Intervention
Topics in Public Policy: Env Policy
Public Interest Groups & Political Participation
Topics in International Politics
Environmental Policy Law
Green Theory
Environmental Ethics

(this section makes me want to pukkkeeee!)
Quantitative Electives: Statistics and Calculus. Statistical analysis is at the heart of most environmental analyses. Calculus provides a method to understand rates of change, another quantitative tool at the heart of understanding environmental change. Credits: 7-8
MA 130

Calculus I (required course)

One of the following courses in applied statistics is required:

Applied Statistics
Statistics for Social Science

Additional Quantitative Electives: one of the following
Advanced Electives (300-400 level) in Environmental and Natural Science. You must have two laboratory-based courses at this level and the total number of credits must be 18. [Note that 7 of these credits come from the Hydrology and Ecology requirement]. This requirement builds your base of skills in environmental science. Credits: 18

Invertebrate Zoology
Invertebrate Zoology Lab

Vertebrate Zoology
Vertebrate Zoology Lab

Environmental Toxicology

Hydrology I

Environmental Monitoring with laboratory

Conservation Biology
Conservation Biology Lab

Geographical Info. Systems

Field Research Methods

Environmental Education Practicum

Hydrology II


Principles of Stratigraphy

Mathematical Modeling

Nuclear Physics

i hate you
i hate you
i hate you
i hate you
i hate you

"and since i'm not your everything how about i'll be nothing. nothing at all to you."

sometimes i just want to go back to college. a lot. cuz this whole 10 minutes away from you thing hurts me entirely too much. at least when it's 3 hours it's easier to pretend that you don't exist.
