As I was expecting, my grades for session 2 were two credits and one pass. This leaves me in a decent position as I start session 3 next week with 3 subjects and approximately 10,000 words to write over the period.
I’ve chosen to do Gender, Sexuality and Culture, Australian Politics and Introduction to Sociology.
It’s now a week and a half until I get my grades back for the second session, but I’ve already had a peek at some of them and they weren’t as good as I was expecting. I’ve just done the maths though, and hope to scrape through with two credits (5 out of 7) and a pass (4 out of 7). This will lower my GPA from 5.75 to 5.29. Not too big a loss, and still passing classes. Of course, I could also be wrong as maths is not one of my strong suits.
What I do know for sure is that I have passed this past session, I’m now 9 classes down from 16 to get myself an Associate Degree of Arts… and have qualified for a Diploma of Arts now, that being my highest level of schooling since high school. It’s only taken 10 years!
Today starts a 4-week break for me, having just handed in my final assignment due this session. I expect to pass all of them, with hopefully more than a simple pass, giving me 9 subjects done and essentially my first achievement unlocked, a Diploma of Arts. Well… I need to wait on the grades, but I’ll be sure to post grades when I know.
For the next session I’ve decided on Sociology as the other subject.
In other news, it was nice having mum over for my birthday. Had a nice night out at SEAduction too. Tried Uber for the first time and it worked great.
The garden is looking nice again, it helped that mum was here to choose plants with me, but I think it’ll look really good by the time she comes back, it’s got 3 months of growth to look forward to.
The pool had the cover taken off, where we found something decomposing and an awful smell. That’s now gone and the pool is slowly coming back to life, though that might take a while.
Thought I’d write a quick entry this afternoon to update the progress on this session of university. Next week is the final week (before exams – of which I have none). I’ve now successfully completed my photography class, ART10275, and as I took the easier option to focus on other subjects, I’ll receive a Pass for the subject. That will have the effect of dropping my GPA slightly, but at this stage, that’s all right with me, as with that now successfully passed, I have 7 units completed of the 16 required for my Associates Degree. One more unit and I get a Diploma of Arts if I give up. I’ve got no plans to of course.
I’ve been slowly plugging away at my Citizenship subject this afternoon, and recently crossed over the thousand word mark, halfway there. It’s due in exactly a week.
A few days after my Citizenship subject is due, I have my Philosophy subject due, another 1500 words to go there. Time is ticking down, but I just need to pop some pills (legal) and concentrate.
Next session I am thinking of taking it easy and doing two subjects. Gender, Sexuality and Culture is one, and the other is to be decided, either an Introduction to Sociology or Australia Politics… seriously, what’s easier?
