Is Majoring In Biology Really Hard?

I get few emails and DMs asking if pursuing a Biology degree is really hard. The fact is it all depends, let me explain. Majoring in Biology is something you must want to do and not something you kind of want to do. That should be applied to everything you do in life, but definitely when you’re talking about getting a degree in a science or engineer program. Why? Because getting a degree in these fields require a lot of dedication and self-sacrifice to get. If you’re more worried about partying it up in college every chance you get don’t even attempt to try to obtain a degree.

Biology is a subject that you must retain information that must be learn. You can’t go through college just memorizing stuff here and there. You have to be able to use your understanding to formulate or solve problems in hypothetical situations. On the college level, be prepared for very technical material and lots of hard work.

I can’t stress enough to put in the hours studying. Most likely you’ll only will have to take four or five test a semester for a class. If you’re taking a class and not doing the lab that corresponds with the course, you’re doing it wrong. I can’t tell you how many times I didn’t get something in class, but when I did it in the lab it all made sense. Also be active with your professors. They might have other learning material or references that will help you. Get involve in the biology club and other events. There you can meet new people and can form up study groups and be strong support system for each other.

Obtaining a biology degree is quite the challenge. It was for me anyways, but it’s so worth it. Now I’m working in a research lab while obtaining my masters. The truth is the learning will never stop. Science is always ever changing and you have to stay in top on things.

So relax, study hard, stay dedicated and continuing to dream of where you going to be after you obtain the degree. Choose easy electives to help bump up your GPA. People from all over the world from different walks of life are able to obtain the degree. There’s no reason you can’t. The biggest thing is to believe in yourself and dream of where that degree can take you.

Tips On Surviving Thanksgiving 2015

It’s November already. While you may already thinking about Christmas, you have to remember that you have to survive Thanksgiving first. For some Thanksgiving can be a very pleasant experience, but for some a couple of days back at home with your family can be very draining. Here are some tips for surviving Thanksgiving 2015.

Prepare Yourself: You know your family better than I do. You’ve been through many Thanksgivings before this one, so you should have an idea on what to expect. If you need meditation the night before, do it. Hide a couple of small bottles of alcohol or fill your flask with the good stuff. If you’re hosting the event make seating arrangements for the meal itself. If you have kids have them make cute name signs and have them place it. Adults usually are not going to change the seating if they know a child did it to avoid hurting his/her feelings because who wants an emotional child during Thanksgiving? Nobody. Don’t cook everything. Have members that coming to bring a dish.

Avoid Heavy Topic: When I say avoid heavy topics, I’m talking about politics or anything that usually get people fired up. Avoid it like the plaque. Break out into song or twerk if you have to.

Leave Social Media Alone: Not because it’s rude to your family, but because all you going to see on social media is your friend’s plate of foods and sadness. Also it’s Facebook law that 80% of your friends must complain about something.

Don’t Be An Early Bird: If you have the luxury of not having to stay with family during the night before Thanksgiving then stay your ass in bed till noonish. If you’re up watching the Thanksgiving parade with them you’re doing it wrong.

Keep the Kids Occupied: For the love of god have something set up for the kids. Have a game station set up for them or movies. Having a dedicated room for them would be ideal. If you have a teenager that’s perfect. Their job can be keeping the kids in line instead of staring into their phones all day long.

Get Out Of the Damn House: Nowhere it’s written that says you have to spend the day eating and just watching football. One of the things I actually like about my thanksgiving is that we actually get to play backyard football or go mudding. These events can bring you closer as a family.

That’s all I have for now. Have anything tips that I might’ve missed? Post them and your thoughts below!
