Whether you want to admit it or not, life can sometimes can really dark. You have days where you wonder if anything will ever get better or if it is even worth trying anymore. I hope you can remind yourself that it is.

If you can't, here are some moments worth living for.

1. The day you meet your maid-of-honor/best man

There's nothing quite like meeting your partner in crime, your other half — the person who gets you more than anybody else does. They become one of the most influential people in your life, and with them by your side, you feel as though you can get through anything.

2. Traveling to a place that takes your breath away

Maybe it is standing in front of the Eiffel Tower or looking out from the top of the mountains in Colorado. Life is full of so many beautiful sights, and there are so many you've yet to see.

These moments really make you feel as if the world is so much bigger than you and your problems.

3. The times you laugh so hard your stomach hurts

Whoever said that "laughter is the best medicine" wasn't messing around. Absorb these times.

Truly, nothing feels the same as this.

4. The holidays

You never want to miss out on the holidays, especially when it comes to the warm feeling you get seeing fully decorated houses and sparkling Christmas lights.

During this time, everyone is a little kinder, everything tastes a little sweeter and everything feels a little more magical.

5. Eating crazy good food

You know that feeling when you were really craving a specific kind of food, and now you're about to eat it? Ohhh baby..

6. Watching a movie or reading a book that makes you cry

This sounds sad, but you know a movie or book is exceptionally good when it makes you cry. And experiencing things that touch your heart is a monumental part of life.

7. Meeting your future spouse

Do I even need to say more?

8. Doing something that scares you

This is the best feeling ever, though the joy usually comes afterward. It's always incredibly rewarding to do something you're afraid of, and it always brings the best memories with it.

9. Getting over something you never thought you would

This is another rewarding feeling. I know the process of it sucks, but getting yourself through something you never thought you would gives you so much pride and dignity. You completely change afterward.

Whether you have or have not experienced these things yet, they are all incredible moments to live for. Life is full of monumental and sweet moments you don't want to miss out on. When life sucks, remember that.

Another Kind Of Service: Research Study Participation

The compensation is just a bonus, I swear.

84
views

Attending a large research university like Emory, there are plenty of opportunities to partake in research. Most often, first-year undergraduates enter the institution eager to join a lab and partake in research. Wise upperclassmen know that is easier said than done. Once upon a time, I was an eager first year at Emory searching for the same opportunities. Along the way, I discovered that dedicating myself to a lab was not the only way to express my love for science or contribute to research. Volunteering my time as a participant in various studies around campus was a great way to feel involved and learn more about my own interests.

Labs and research groups advertise for volunteers all around campus. I was interested in the idea of contributing to a study that had the potential to help millions of other people in the future. Sometimes, service is not volunteering at the hospital or pulling out weeds at a community garden. Anytime you take time out of your day for a cause greater than yourself, it is a service to others.

Participating in research studies also helped me find what I was interested in studying. I found myself leaning towards many psychology and sociology based labs because I was intrigued by the research they were conducting. I learned about different conditions for which I was unaware of the symptoms and how they affect a person's life. Additionally, reading through the consent forms made me appreciate the thought and time it takes to set up an experimental design and have a project approved. All these research studies made me realize that doing research can be exciting, but the intensive background work was not the lifestyle or career I wanted for myself in the future. I was able to discover this earlier rather than later because of my participation in research studies.

Moreover, research studies provide a plethora of incentives to entice people to volunteer. A gift card or cash for a short thirty-minute survey or test seems like an excellent deal. Studies that have longer time frames for participation have higher amounts of cash. Sometimes, these studies can simply be done through your phone for a period of two weeks to months. We are all on our phones the majority of the time anyway, except this way you make money by answering a few questions. I have received plenty of money or gift cards that helped me buy books or food. Compensation is not only in the form of money either. Biological studies may require blood tests or vital signs. These studies are essentially a free check-up.

Depending on your medical conditions, physical traits, time constraints, and preferences, there will be a research study looking for volunteers of your demographic. Research and science are not only for STEM majors or professors. Being a volunteer in a research study allows you to be a part of the scientific process, not just the person reading the results in a newspaper article later.
