7 Quick Takes: Random Edition

— 1 —

Normally, I like to do “themed” 7 Quick takes. My brain naturally works in an organized, systematic  manner and I like focusing on one topic at a time. But this week, I couldn’t come up with a theme so I figured I’d give a whirl at being random. 🙂

I’ve started my third online college course en route to getting my bachelors degree in English. This semester it’s chemistry. I found out that I have to take some general education courses that I didn’t take the first time I was in college. 🙁 I”m not thrilled that I have to take general courses, but it is what it is.

And can I just say that I’m only a week into the course and it is HARD and a lot of work. I’ve never had a mathematical or science-y mind, so I was expecting it to be a challenge and this course is proving to live up to that expectation and more!

Speaking of chemistry, if you have a simple way of explaining how to balance chemical equations let me know!

The Lord has been putting this scripture in the forefront of my mind and heart. First I read it in the bible, then a friend called and shared the scripture with me, and then put it before me again yesterday. Its 1 Peter 1:6-8:

“In this you rejoice, although now for a little while you may have to suffer through various trials,so that the genuineness of your faith, more precious than gold that is perishable even though tested by fire, may prove to be for praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.Although you have not seen him you love him; even though you do not see him now yet believe in him, you rejoice with an indescribable and glorious joy.”

Yesterday I finished MONTHS of helping a friend edit her début love-inspired novel. Woot! It was a lot of work but very rewarding and I’m just as excited as the author for the book to come out! She is self-publishing the book and in the next step I’ll be helping her format the e-book for Amazon.

That’s it for this random edition of 7QT. 🙂 Have a great weekend everyone!

  2. Carol, I confess I chickened out of further science after Biology in highschool in favor of more artsy pursuits. I was scared because so many people complained about how hard it was. In college I took a couple of science courses but none like physics or chemistry. Now I regret it. But I did well in trigonometry in college and loved it. So sorry I can’t help you.

      No problem, Barb. 🙂 I did some more research online and found some resources that helped me figure out how to balance the equations.

      In any case, I’m sure the Lord will be with me and I’ll survive! The funny thing about this course is that it is supposed to be designed for those who are NOT science majors – scary!

    Those look delicious! And also, sometimes general ed ends up being some of the most fun classes. I was able to take some through ITV, which means I could buy the videos and just go to classes for the exams…it saves a lot of time!

    • SimpleCatholic says

      They sure do. Haven’t made them yet, but hopefully soon!

      I hope the gen ed class turn out to be fun. So far chemistry has been extremely difficult!
