Currently, I am majoring as a Science Specialization Student at John Tyler. I have been attending John Tyler mostly at the Midlothian campus since Fall of 2012. So, for me, that's two years and two summers including this one. I'm hoping to graduate with an associates degree in Science Specialization as close to the Spring of 2015 as possible.
Up to this point, I have taken 71 credits worth of courses after graduating High School. That count is obtained without subtracting credits for courses repeated or for courses that will not count towards my associates degree, and by adding the credit hours I took during my Freshmen year at Christopher Newport University that was oriented as a Biology Bachelor of Science Major. However, I'm not quite sure because my unofficial transcript --I think-- counts me for having 102 cumulative credits which includes my biotechnology dual enrollment class that I took through the Chesterfield Technical Center my Junior year of high school. If I play my cards right, after this class I should just be 21 credits away from graduating with my "Associate of Sciences (General Studies- Science Specialization)" according to a chart that my counselor and I filled out.
After that, my hope is to transfer to a University to get a Bachelor degree that is little more specialized than what I've experienced before. That way, I have the basic skills and education that I would need for the career I choose. Some examples of Universities I'm thinking of transferring into include Virginia Commonwealth University, Liberty University, and Longwood University where they specialize in different science Bachelor degrees.
I was motivated to choose American Literature to take over the summer because I imagined that I might enjoy it better than Shakespeare and that I might be comfortably reading for my summer homework outside of class.
As far as my occupation or career goals go I have considered being a Nurse, a Physical Therapist, a Forensic Scientist, a Veterinarian, and a Teacher in the past but I'm still not sure exactly what I want to do. I'm hoping that maybe I can narrow it down to one occupation by the time I'm ready to transfer to my Bachelor program. Who knows, I may even decide later to continue my education beyond a Bachelor's degree.
Outside the classroom my interests and hobbies lie in singing, dancing, sailing, and horseback riding. I don't really keep up with any of them these days but I always have an interest to pick them up again.
