Dilbert explains it all:
Though I have to say, I'm having a horrible track record with all the computer nerds I've dated. I hate to propagate the stereotype, but they've all had the emotional capacity of a nematode. Next time I'm aiming for a biologist.
Speaking of nerdiness, here are the classes I'm taking next semester:
- Senior Seminar in Genetics (One hour a week of discussing genetics. Woo?)
- Sex & Evolution (I've been dying to take this class since I got here, but it's only offered every other year. I'm psyched! Why do we have sex? Why do (most) species have two sexes? Weeeee!)
- General Physics 2 (Oh god, so close to being done...Sorry for all you physicists, but it's just not my thing. Now, if it was Elegant Universe kind of theoretical wacky physics, I'd be all in. But I hate doing nothing but math filled with trick questions, bah!)
- Population Genetics (This may be a mistake. I'm taking this as my "fun" elective...yeah, a 500 level graduate course. Oh boy.)
- Senior Biology Labs (Protein Expression and DNA Sequencing. Still waiting to hear back if I can get out of DNA sequencing, since I just spent a summer doing an independent research project where I was sequencing. I'll be sad if I have to do it all over again.)
- Honors Thesis Research (Still have to pick my topic with my advisor...there are too many ideas floating around now!)
The masochistic part of me still wanted to TA one of the intro biology labs to get some teaching experience before grad school, but looking at my schedule, that may be a bad idea. I guess it really depends if I get out of that one lab or not. I could still TA in the spring, but I'd sort of like to be able to put teaching experience on my resume for when I'm applying. Any thoughts? Other than the fact that I'm a giant nerd?
