Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

…and we can have meat today too? This is too good to be true. :-)

 Fr. Fisher says that we are fellow Vikings – perhaps I should wish him a Happy St. Patrick’s Day in honor of his Viking-ness? Haha.

    Happy First Day of Spring!!
    March 20th, 2006

    And, of course, St. Joseph’s Feast Day. We got to say the Gloria at Mass
    this morning! :)

    Today was also registration day for Fall 06 classes.here is my line up as it
    now stands:

    Advanced Inorganic Chemistry with Dr. Gregory A. Brewer (Credit hrs.: 3)
    Description: A discussion of topics in the field of inorganic chemistry,
    selected from the general areas of transition metal, main group and
    organometallic chemistry, and theories of structure and bonding. [It will be
    fun to have Dr. Brewer as a teacher again. Just like old times!]

    Biochemistry with Dr. Ildiko M. Kovach (Credit hrs.: 4)
    Description: Lectures on the chemistry of biological systems, including
    discussion of important metabolic pathways. [Reputedly the hardest course in the sciences at CUA, with the toughest teacher.]

    Analytical Chemistry with Dr. Cynthia T. Brewer (Credit hrs.: 5)
    Description: A lecture and laboratory course applying the principles of
    chemical equilibrium to quantitative analysis, with emphasis on
    environmental chemistry. [I’m told this is a “fun” chemistry course.]

    Advanced Chemistry Research with the Drs. Brewer (Credit hrs.: 3)
    Description: Guided participation in the research project of a consenting
    faculty member chosen by the student.

    History of Ancient Philosophy with Dr. Jean De Groot (Credit hrs.: 3)
    Description: The beginning of philosophy from the pre-Socratics to Plotinus.
    Emphasis is placed on nature and language as the origin of philosophical
    problems in Heraclitus, Parmenides and Plato. Key elements of Aristotle’s
    philosophy are presented with an emphasis on categories and the background for metaphysics. Skepticism, Epicureanism, and Stoicism are explored in relation to materialism, fate, and natural law. Concentrators only. [:::sarcastically::: Woohoo more Aristotle.]

    Philosophy of Science with Dr. Richard Hassing (Credit hrs.: 3)
    Description: Logic of inquiry in the sciences (primarily natural);
    explanation, prediction, causality, scientific law, induction, and other
    concepts involved in understanding the scientific enterprise. [I wonder why
    Dr. De Groot said I should take this one?]

    Dr. Brewer was also telling me today that I am eligible to TA for an
    undergraduate class next semester. After talking to Matt, it doesn’t sound
    like it would be too demanding (esp. if I am doing one of the classes other
    than Organic) so I will probably apply. Besides, it looks great on a resume
    and TAs are paid.

    Anyway, I need to get back to work. I have a nice juicy Physics quiz
    tomorrow.something tells me this one will be the one he drops (Dr. Pegg
    drops the lowest score). But wasn’t that the last one?
