Woohoo! Union’s fall term is finally under way and I am happy to say that I am psyched about all of my classes this term! Here is what I have on my class schedule:
Monetary Economics — We will be spending the term reviewing major macroeconomic events that have occurred throughout history, learning more about the intricacies of how the Federal Reserve handles monetary policy, and studying how the idea of “money” around the world affects real things in the economy like growth and unemployment. I am excited about this course because it is almost exactly what I did this summer. How cool is it to sit in a class and be able to say, “Oh yeah, I directly affected those markets.” Too cool!
Culinary Chemistry — I really think this course is going to be awesome. The professor seems outstanding and who can complain when the “lab” requirements entail baking and beer tasting? Not this gal. Plus, it will be neat to tie this course work into my involvement with the Culinary House on campus!
Senior Thesis — EEK! Just in case you didn’t get it: EEEEEEEEEEEEK! See, I really thought I’d walk away from this summer with a brilliant thesis idea, but that didn’t happen, so now it’s back to the drawing board! And of course I put a lot of pressure on myself, not just in a I-hope-I-nail-this-and-get-a-super-awesome-grade-on-this way, but also in a what-the-heck-am-I-doing-with-my-life-this-thesis-needs-to-be-the-most-incredible-job-securing-piece-of-writing-this-century-has-seen kind of way. Do I worry about almost everything? Neverrrrrrrr!
I hope everyone else is psyched about their classes and is pumped to be back! Anyone taking anything particularly intriguing??
