15 Problems All Science Majors Have

If you're attempting to receive your bachelors of science, you know its not a walk in the park. If the work is not already hard enough, we run into ANNOYING obstacles almost on an everyday basis. Here are just a few problems of a science major.

1. Typing terms like Acetylcholine and Aminobutyric into a word document and seeing (No Spelling Suggestions).

Get with the program Microsoft.

2. When you KNOW you got an equation right but MathLab says no.

That one space bar click that you didn't know you hit just cost you .4 of a point on the assignment.

3. Stopping yourself from getting all scientific when your friend asks you a question.

Going out with your friends turns into you becoming the Bill Nye of the night.

4. When you're lost in lecture and think "I'll just google this later and it'll make sense." BUT IT DOESN' T...

Just hope its not on the exam (which it probably will be for like 30%)

5. When others complain to you about their difficulties on finishing their one page paper due in 3 weeks.


6. A professor that reads directly from the powerpoint.

No, I don't have a Ph. D and those words are not in my vocabulary.

7. Better yet, Professors that draw their own diagrams.

Sorry, Ma'am, that squiggle that you call a sulci is actually just a poorly drawn line thats nowhere anatomically near what you're trying to get at. F for eFfort because thats just ANNOYING.

8. Dissecting things studiously but in your mind you really think everything looks the same.

*points to general direction and looks around to room to where everyone else is pointing*

9. Not writing/typing fast enough in lecture.

Daily mini panic attacks.

10. Watching T.V and justifying scenes.

NOPE. Thats a fully sterile procedure, that can't happen. NOPE NOPE NOPE,

11. Undergraduate Research Proposals.

I actually know nothing and don't even know what you're asking me to write in the directions but I'm going to write some scientific gibberish down hoping no-one notices.

12. Realizing how much the general public doesn't know.

How do you not know what mitochondria is?... No, it's not an organ.

13. People who judge you for looking ugly.

I don't even want you to look at me bc I'm probably already in a bad mood from something that has to do with my major. Looking good is not on my agenda today.

14. Dumb questions.

"Oh so can you give me a flu shot since you took pharm!" No?!????...... bye!!!

15. Everyone thinking that you like everything nerdy.

No thanks, I don't want a Star Trek DVD series Grandma Jean. ( I already have one but I'm not going to let you know that.)

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.


It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
