Video of the Day

-- I subscribe to many vlogs (video blogs) on youtube and many of them center around healthy hair care, hair styling, fashion, dance, and sometimes make-up. This video of the day features one the vloggers I subscribe to. I felt like everything she was saying was on point, and very valuable info... so, I wanted to share it here.

Merry Christmas

Excited about gifts and spending time with family and friends, but let us not forget the real reason for Christmas and the greatest gift of all...

"...I come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."
John 10:10 KJV

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Evolution of Science Presentations

So, as these final weeks of graduate school wound down and I had to sit through countless hours of student presentations, I couldn't help but notice how much science presentations have changed since grade school. Here's my take on the progression of science presentations (based on level of education)...

Kindergarten: (show and tell)

Elementary School: (dioramas)

Middle School: (Baking soda volcanoes)

High School: (Science Fair projects)

Undergrad: (Poster Sessions)

These 3 pics are of the Wyeth Poster Session (Junior Year, 2009) my Organic Chemistry class participated in. My group and I did our poster on Bisphenol A. (left to right: Nigel, Red head-Greg, Me, Everett).
Graduate School: (Powerpoint presentations depicting the molecular pathways involved in disease progression)

Note: Some of these assignments do overlap a bit.

Hi, my fellow readers. I haven't blogged in almost a week (minus yesterday's Video of the Day post. That was scheduled to be posted from about 2 weeks ago).

So, alot has been going on. It's the end of the semester which means I have tons of work to do: papers, presentations, studying for exams... all which can be seen here. And to make matters worse, my 2-month old laptop decided to die on me last saturday (December 4th), so I've been living in the library since then. I count it a bit of a blessing though, because I have been able to get a good portion of my work done and was not distracted with facebook, twitter, checking my 2 hotmail accounts, blogging, youtube updates, etc. I made an extra effort to only do work and occasionally check emails and apply for jobs while I'm in the library and I stuck that commitment until now. But come on, it's a Friday night... My wrists hurt from typing so much (even though I'm typing now).

Anyhoo, all is well. I'm almost done with my first semester of graduate school, so that is definitely a plus! You'll see more of me around December 20th.

Be well. ツ

Happy December!

I can't believe it's December already. I vividly remember writing the "Happy November" post which seemed like it was not too long ago, although 30 days have passed since then.

I am quite happy about this month...
December means that the year is coming to an end and we're on the horizon of a brand new year. It's also the month that we celebrate Christ's birth, which is really exciting and humbling. December also means an extension (following Thanksgiving) of happy times with family and friends .

P.S. Thanksgiving was lovely. I have no pictures from that day, but 'twas good. Good food, no drama, and aunties bustin' jokes.
