KEEP ON SCIENCING BROS!!!
Anonymous asked: I love science, a lot, but it doesn't come as easily to me as the humanities. My dream is to be a researcher, but where I'm passing my English courses with A+s without even trying I'm barely scraping through my science courses with B's.I feel awful, it's my passion but it just doesn't come as easy, and now I feel like I shouldn't be in the sciences at all because English is clearly what I'm good at. Any advice?
Personally, I think if you’re passionate about science you should definitely pursue it! Everyone has there strengths and weaknesses when it comes to studying and everyone faces challenges when it comes to what they’re passionate about; I think most people reaching a point in studying science where they find themselves challenged and have to get creative to overcome those challenges.
Perhaps you can find new ways of studying science which will allow you to utilize the strengths which have allowed you to succeed in English.
There are also definitely careers and avenues in the field of science that would allow you to also utilize your strengths, there are a ton of options when it comes to science and there are sure to be so many more and science continues to grow and advance.
Do what you love; do what makes you happy. That’s what matters.
(Also, if it makes you feel any better, I’ve gotten my fair share of B’s. Science isn’t always a walk in the park; it’s not always possible to do perfectly. I’ve always felt like the challenge science presents is a big part of why it’s so wonderful to pursue.)
Hopefully that helps!
itendswithe asked: Hey bros, I'm a grad student studying animal behavior and currently quite a stressed one at that - that you for making me laugh and reminisce about my undergrad days! Keep up with the science everyone! Grad school is awful and wonderful :)
I JUST realized we hadn’t yet gotten around to answering this. (Sorry guys, it’s been a rough semester)
Anyway, you are so welcome and I’m so glad this made you laugh and reminisce! You’re wonderful and good luck with grad school!
