The difference between me and my crazy roommate.
So me and my one roommate don’t get along with the third one; we’ve already had to go to mediation and had to get the school administration involved, it’s a terrible situation. She is super passive aggressive but always starts shit then leaves. Anyways, she left a page and a half long note complaining about everything and how awful and dirty we are. Which I am a clean person,...
When people ask me what I like to do in my spare...
I have to tell them that it is a 4-way tie between napping, watching lifetime movies, reading research articles, and flossing. With that being said, I don’t get that much spare time, but I feel when I do I make it time well spent.
I mean..at least I'm a productive procastinator?
Sometimes instead of studying or doing my homework I let my inner geek run free and find myself 3 hours later still reading research articles about anything science related. Good news is type 1 diabetes can be cured in dogs and dogs can be born from frozen embryos…bad news is I still haven’t started my physics homework…

Nothing like a big cup of warm pee
I had no problem dissecting frogs in physiology lab (I actually found it really interesting) but I have to draw the line when it comes to testing the production and concentration of my own urine in lab. With that being said you know URINE a biology class when a lab requires you to centrifuge your own urine then find the P-value on a graph about the differences on concentration….get it?
My advice to all those in ochem
Me whenever I get an almost perfect IR in orgo lab
If it had ever happened….
Shit my professors say
Physiology professor after his kid interrupted our lecture about the fetal heart in order to give him a truffle. “At some point fetal expulsion occurs and the fetus becomes a baby who grows up to be an adorable chocolate bringer.”
semperfideliskindoflove asked: Oh, awesome! Wildlife would be extremely interesting to learn about and take care of. I'm actually planning on going for equine medicine and specialize in equine physical therapy :) Haha oh man, I haven't actually taken biochem yet, I have it next year. I'm kinda scared lol
semperfideliskindoflove asked: You're pre vet bio!? I'm pre vet, but majoring in biochem :) What type of vet do you want to be, small or large animal?

Which of these ones is not like the other
I hate when all your friends are short (like 5’3” and under) and here you are in pictures at a NORMAL 5’7” and yet you look like the freakish giant..it gets worse when heels are involved.
Shit my professors say
Physics professor: Number one phrase: “That ain’t right.” Number two phrase: “I’m excited for the final, not to grade it, definteley not to grade it, especially if they look how the finals from last term looked, but to write it. I’ve had a couple of months to create some really juicy problems.”

Anonymous asked: So my roommates are a little ticked at me this semester because according to them I don't have time for the them. Excuse me but I'm juggling 4 classes, 3 labs, independent research, and work. They keep insisting that they're just as busy and yet they make time for each other (and I understand that each major comes with it's own set of difficulties but it's 2 music majors...
reallythatworked asked: Orgo lab made me hate lab work, so now I might be doing vet school after my bachelors instead of a PhD. It looks like a harder path, but I won't hate myself.
Spent the night with my physics notes, woot woot!
We got to play with frog legs!!
Anonymous asked: I was going through the same thing as you, I think. I had all of these guys in my life and each of them had some piece of what I was looking for but not the whole thing. It was so frustrating. And then, with some patience, I found someone who really embodied everything I ever wanted. That person will come along for you, and you should never settle for anything less!

I wish I could mold three people into one person, then I would have the greatest guy. I would take the sweet side of baby M, the fact that he is always willing to listen and talk; but then I’d take the smooth talking of J#1 he gets my sense of humor the best and handles my bitchy comments the best, and he has the capability of making me feel good about myself (but with that power also comes...

One of my biggest regrets as I wake up this morning, is making friends with the bartenders and bouncers at bars. You drink way too much but rationalize it as being ok because the drinks are free. At least I know they’ll watch my back AFTER getting me completely trashed.

Sorry for the lack of updates! I was on springbreak and super busy with everything but I’m baaaaaacccckkkkkk
One’s trash is another’s treasure. I hope one day you realize I did truly care for you. I promise you, you’re going to miss me being there, putting up with you and refusing to give up on you. You’re going to regret everything you’ve done to me, including all the damage you caused. Someday, you’ll turn back and I won’t be waiting for you any longer. I might have been worthless to you, but you’ll...

Thought of the day
So a couple of years ago, I was at volleyball tournament and me and some of my teammates got a room together at the hotel and the front desk girl was probably mid twenties and was so rude to us, and as she handed us the key card she told us not to break anything because teenagers always broke things. Later in the night, I was offended by Darcy’s (see I even remember her name) reaction to us,...
Do As I Say, Not As I Do
If you are doubtful about rooming with someone then don’t do it! The only thing worse then potentially hurting their feelings is being stuck living with them for the whole year. If you can avoid the situation, please speak up and do it. Don’t ruin your year because you are living with a monster when the situation could have been avoided. Best of luck with your roommates!

Anonymous asked: I'm sure you've answered this before but do you have any tips for studying both bchem and ochem? Half the time I feel like I know my stuff really well going into a test and come out with so-so grades, I'm not sure what to do! Also: you're awesome.
