10 Struggles All Freshman Science Majors Know To Be True
Huffington Post

Majoring in any subject related to science is a wild roller-coaster ride and as a freshman, it is even more intimidating. You have amazing days when you feel like you can conquer anything and then you have really tough days, when you question how you even became interested in science in the first place. You sometimes wish they told you what to expect beforehand. But in the end, you will always agree that you are going into the best field out there, even if you have to complete those terrible, ten page lab reports. Here are some things all freshman science majors can relate to.

1. You think you will get straight As at the beginning of the year, but then you realize there is just no possible way.

2. In your free time you --wait, what free time?

3. You try to balance lecture notes, recitations, lab reports, and all of the work from your gen-ed courses.

4. Having more than one midterm exam for each one of your science courses.

5. You sit in most of your classes wondering when you will ever use that information, again.

6. And at some point, you realize you have no idea what the professor is talking about.

7. Being overly excited about barely passing an exam.

8. So, will there be a curve?

9. You constantly re-evaluate your decision to go into this field.

10. You make inside jokes that your non-science major friends don't understand.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
