8 Thoughts That Will Cross Your Mind As A Science Major

A 60% exam grade? Sick I got the average score!


Hint: if you're in my 9 a.m. Friday discussion, I will be sitting in the back corner nearest to the door with an oversized hoodie and a plastic bag.

Being in one of the bigger programs, it's very easy to meet people experiencing your happiness as well as pain, and as a science major, I have plenty of both.

1. How is a 4 hour lab one credit..

Actually though, let me know the reasoning behind this.

2. Where do I even start in the real world?

I love science classes, but a lot of my time is spent doing work that has no push towards any one specific job. I've gone through half of undergrad and have less of an idea what I want to do when I graduate. Yay.

3. Yeah, I have a research position and ____.

Internships aren't as big of a thing, it's research position after research position. What am I researching? Honestly not really sure but that's what my job title says!

4. I got the average test grade!

We're just not going to focus on the fact it was a 61%.

5. I wish one semester I could have a decent looking Friday.

99% chance it's never going to happen. I guess STEM loves their Friday discussions, as I haven't had a semester yet where I can sleep in on Friday. Unless I ~forgot to set my alarm~, which oddly happened quite a bit.

6. What's my professors name again?

Me on the last day of school trying to do professor reviews. Big classes = never really meeting them.

7. When the hell am I ever going to use this?

Okay, so this one is mostly me in any math class ever. The word calculus alone gives me shivers, and even a basic statistics class had me throwing papers around. Let me know why I worked an hour on ONE problem, to come to the conclusion females ages 18-24 prefer vanilla ice cream over chocolate. Thrilling.

8. At least I can go and talk to no one.

Half of my classes are 300 people, so if needed I can come late and just blend in in the back. It's great

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.
