Summer 2020: UC Berkeley

Hello everyone!!
Long time no hear. Ok, so I recently started my journey at UC Berkeley (!) this summer and I wanted to quickly discuss the courses I was taking this summer. First, I am taking Physics 8A: Introduction to Physics. 
Before signing up for this class I had never taken a physics class, so you can imagine how I felt when I found out that I am not so good at physics. At any rate, I am studying nearly everyday when I am not in lecture or discussion and doing everything possible to succeed. 
For those of you interested, we covered position, velocity, acceleration, and the likes the first week. Then, the second week we covered various topics in friction forces. And this week we covered work, and the likes. 
    As for my second class, I am taking Philosophy 25B: Modern Philosophy. This class only started this week (July 7th) so we haven't covered much. But thus far, the class is intriguing. We are currently discussing Descartes and his propositions of being. Which is actually what this blog was founded on! Descarte's proposition of "I think, therefore I am." I'll probably upload another post about what I think about this proposition and how Descarte's thinks this is the most valid argument/realization, what have you, in the world. At any rate, this class has been interesting thus far and my professor and GSI are very knowledgable woman — that's an understatement. 
I'm adamant to learn more! That's all, and I'll be posting soon about what classes I hope to be taking this Fall, and whether or not I get into them. Stay safe and wear a mask!
