At the end of my first semester I love mortuary school! It's a lot of work and it's intimidating and over whelming in spots but I'm having so much fun! I should end up with high B's in all but orientation. Missed a C by 2.5 points (blatantly did not do the paper).
I had expected Thano to be easy but boring and far too touchy feely but it wasn't too bad. Anatomy & Pysiology was awesome, except for the micro test that litteraly three people passed. Managment would suck horribly but the teacher does her best to keep us entertained while we suffer. Orientation and funeral services are both full of really interesting things. Excellent professors all around. Really the whole program at Cypress is amazing!
Most of the people I'm in the program with are pretty good too.It's an odd an wonderful thing to be surrounded by freaks at least as odd as I am :p
There is one chick who is full of stupid, and she's a great source of entertainment. For example and I quote "If the cerebral spinal fluid protects the brain why can't you shake a baby?" "you mean they have to sit with the dead guy the whole flight!? Why? Why not throw him.. I mean they toss bodies out at sea right, so why not just throw them out the window [of the plane]?" O.o She also seems to be utterly lacking in compassion and a bit of a bigot but that's not quite so funny.

Man this just makes me more and more excited to start next semester. I got lucky and they let me in the program even though I didn't meet all the requirements. Woo!

It'll be so nice to be around people similar to myself. :D

Oh my god! I can't believe she said they should throw the body out a plane. The ethical reasons are bad enough. But does she not realize how fast it would fall and the damage it could cause if it hits a person or building? Common sense is clearly not so common.

It's awesome! How many prerequisites you have left? I've got two I need to take in the summer. Should be none but long story shot one of the teachers* was a total bitch.

Plane windows are also tiny, pressurized and do not open. At least she's always good for a laugh >.<

*It pains me to call her that cause she's a failure as an educator in every way but that's neither here nor there.

The school I'm going to has a pre req that is an introduction to funeral science. You have to take it before you even apply for the program. It took me forever to convince them to let me do it at the same time.

Ah I totally didn't think of that part. May be you could flush it down the toilet. :D

They just make us finish all the first semester classes before you can move on.

That sucks. There a re a lot of classes you can do in any order. Just as long as you do the part one classes before the part two classes you can do them whenever you want.

yeah. There are quite several people that won't be moving on because the missed just a few points in a class.
