15 Times All Science Majors Let Their Emotions Get The Better Of Them

It's all fun and games until someone mentions Organic Chemistry.

15 Times All Science Majors Let Their Emotions Get The Better Of Them

1. When you get too excited about that one concept you understand in your lab report ...

2. When someone tries to impress you with a random scientific fact that you already know, and you cut them off …

3. When you pass Gen Bio and consider yourself an expert in the field …

4. When you finally figure out a complicated problem by some roundabout method and try to explain your 12-page scratchwork to someone …

5. When you learn something actually cool and dangerous that you can do now that you have taken chemistry lab …

6. When you’re bitter because you think you figured out something new and interesting only to realize you’re wrong when you try to explain it out loud to someone …

7. When you finally crack because people are distracting you while you’re trying to study …

8. When you spontaneously burst into tears while staring at your lab report and nobody understands what exactly is making you upset …

9. When you get overly excited about pointless reactions you learn how to do …

10. When you laugh a little too hard at a science joke because you get it …

11. When you get sassy and use big words to hide the fact that you don’t actually know what you’re talking about ...

12. When you have a proud parent moment because a non-science major friend or relative is impressed by some random scientific fact …

13. When you daydream about (or secretly act out) a lab accident that leaves you with insanely cool super powers ...

14. When you have to try to stay calm while listening to someone make scientific claims that you know for a fact are wrong …

15. … Or aggressively cutting someone off and verbally overwhelming them with an in-depth scientific explanation.

I think science majors are all a little emotionally unstable; it's just a matter of finding that one thing that pushes them over the edge.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
