Since we’re now in September, I feel like I’m getting into the routine of my classes. I’ve really enjoyed them so far and luckily haven’t had much homework (knock on wood). So here’s my senior schedule for the fall:
- Anatomy and Physiology I: Erica and I actually have this class together! It’s offered through the Nursing school but most of my pre-med friends are taking it too. Like Erica, I haven’t had much Anatomy in the past and I think this course will prepare me for med school.
- Neurobiology of Behavior: This is the last Neuroscience class I need to finish my major! Ken Catania, the professor, has received the MacArthur Genius Grant so he’s super smart and passionate about his research. Since we’re studying the behavior of so many animals, we get to see a lot of them in class! A baby alligator hatched on the first day and an owl is visiting class next week, so needless to say, there is never a dull moment.
- Development of Drama from 1642-1865: This class counts towards my minor and is with my favorite professor Christin Essin! We’re studying performances during the Italian Renaissance right now, which is a little too history-focused for me, but Christin still makes the class super fun.
- Country Music: I’ll be the first to say I’m not a country music fan, but it’s my last year in Nashville and I didn’t want to leave without knowing anything about its history. We’ve even listened to some of my faves Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, so maybe I’m more of a country music fan than I thought.
I’m still working in the Educational Cognitive Neuroscience lab from last semester, so between that, my classes, and all my organizations, I’ve managed to stay pretty busy. But as I remembered last week on an off-day when I watched Netflix for about four hours in a row, I’m much more productive/happier when I have lots to do.
