I am extremely pleased with my fall class schedule. This is the current line-up:

BIOL 380 Biostatistics - 12:00-12:50 pm MWF (3)
PSY 394A Psychology of Religion - 1:00 - 1:50 pm MWF (3)
ENG 485 Writing for the World Wide Web - 2:00 - 2:50 pm MWF (3)
PSY 432 Psychology of Motivation - 12:30 - 1:45 pm TR (3)
GEOG 326 Natural Resources - 2:00 - 3:15 pm TR (3)
GEOG 470 Remote Sensing/Air Photo - 3:30 - 4:45 pm TR (3)
Total credit hours: 18

It is quite a load, yes, but I need every last course, and if all goes according to plan (and one can never be too complacent in thinking that it will), it will also be my final semester. The fact that I have no morning classes makes a significant difference as well. I also have my summer schedule ready:

May 16 - June 9, 2005
HPE 494 Science of Diet & Weight Control - 1:00-3:15 pm MTWRF (3)
PSY 323 Community Psychology - Online (3)

I scored by getting an online course. It's something I would like to try. I doubt I could handle more than two courses during the summer, since they are courses that are ordinarily several months long compressed into less than a month. Lots of homework everyday, undoubtedly. It still beats going to school for an extra regular semester just to fulfill six measly credit hours.

As for this semester, I am doing fine. I have been less stressed over it than usual, though it could just be the eye of the storm for all I know. I can be quite certain that since the full moon is coming out, this evening is going to be the inevitable crack down. I am leaving, now.

Being a big fan of making course schedules, your schedule looks very well thought out.

Even though I'm requesting well in advance, I am interested in knowing how PSY 432 will go as I think that is a type of course that could have helped me professional (though I don't know yet since I've yet to be a professional).

Taking a full course load is tough; so taking a full course load plus one is going to be tougher. I've never taken a full course load, except for last semester and I have found that in order to kept up with all of my courses, I had to sacrifice social engagements and events, which is always fine with me. It's a challenge, but definitely well worth it inthe end, especailly if you get to graduate earlier.

Nonetheless, the end is fast approaching. That probably a significant motivating factor.:)

Well, I have no social life, so that is never a problem with me. I have no friends to maintain any relationships with, which has its perks. I could probably take seven if I had to, but 18 is the limit unless I make a special request otherwise.
