I don’t really have a proper Halloween costume but as a chemistry major I always have a lab coat and safety glasses around. Every day is a day for SCIENCE! 🌌💥📡 #me #halloween #halloween2015 #halloweencostume #costume #chemistry #science #nerd #sciencenerd #chemmajor #self #selfie #selfies (at Thompson Rivers University)

Never Ever Give Up

A self reflection:

I got a 75 on my first biochem exam last semester, tears were shed and I was sure I could never make it through 2 semesters…

I continued to work my butt off and got 75’s on the two following exams…

As the final approached a C was pretty much THE HIGHEST grade I could even imagine.

Then against all odds I got 105% on the final with the curve… And an A- in my first semester of biochem.

Now here I am a semester later approaching finals with a solid A & i consider biochem my easy A, favorite subject, pretty much my main squeeze.

Lesson Learned: if you want something bad, never never ever give up, be persistent, work your ass off, give it 100% every time, don’t let failure bring you down-learn from it, and defy the odds.

Sounds like a cliché, but as finals approach, I hope someone facing this struggle reads this, runs with it and gets that grade!

Best of luck!


great movie, greater advertisement!

I feel like I’ve been so busy I’ve barely had time to enjoy the pre-holiday festivities. With my sisters coming into town today I decided to take a break and whip out a last min gift inspired by @miniaturerhino. I got a little carried away with the stars because they looked like snow. :) #constellations #stars #stitch #embroidery #galaxy #sciencenerd
