I wanted to name this post “My Personal J-word”…but let’s play safe, just in case 😉
Sometimes, like right now, I hate the world of academia. I hate everything about it. I was born to be wild. You can’t chain me behind glass walls and ask me to learn how to integrate pressure and volume formulas.
I need to be doing something, I need to be someone. I need to get out of this cage that is killing my creativity.
Sometimes, just sometimes, I hate school.
But most of the time, I enjoy that bitter taste and horrible gut feeling of being screwed for an exam.
I truly believe I hate physical chemistry.
Physical Chemistry is my personal struggle. If I ever pass this course and become someone who has a say in university, I will not make it a requirement for biochem students. Because frankly, I don’t need to know how to differentiate del V over del T as S remains constant and relate it to some other crap I don’t know. What I do know is that I finished all the biochem courses they offer and I really don’t need this knowledge to isolate my proteins and test if the drug I used influenced the structure of the protein or not.
But, then again, with the right intention, I’m hoping for lots of ajer going through this personal struggle of mine.
