And You Say I’m Not Competitive

by Alumni Posts December 2, 2013

I’m not athletic. I don’t relish in the idea of a trophy room. I’d rather see everyone who sincerely tries succeed instead of seeing the same few people being successful all of the time. However, all of that being said, I’m definitely excited to have taken home first place from my microbiology lab’s first Thanksgiving […]

Inspiration from a Hot Sauce Packet

by Alumni Posts October 6, 2013

I love inspirational quotes. They bring a smile to my face on a dreary day, they make me laugh, and they remind me to keep believing in myself and progressing toward my life goals. Generally, I find inspiration in quotes from movies, books, plays, and musicals. However, I just recently found an inspirational quote located […]

The weather is saying that fall is soon upon us, classes have been in session for almost a month, and my favorite holiday of the year, Halloween, draws ever closer. This semester is […]

Potpourri

by Alumni Posts July 17, 2013

I’ll proudly admit that I love watching the classic gameshow “Jeopardy!”. I’ve actually taken the online quiz twice in an attempt to take the next steps to be a contestant on the show. One of the categories that always befuddles me, however, is called “Potpourri.” This category, which is in play in extremely random intervals, […]

It’s All Coming Together Now…

by Alumni Posts June 20, 2013

I just returned home after a day devoted to all things science. Today, the lab where I’m an intern hosted an open house/networking event at the Helix Center, a biotech incubator in Creve Coeur. “What exactly is a biotech incubator?” you may ask. Well, basically, it’s a place where small, start-up lab companies can begin […]

What’s YOUR Animal?!

by Alumni Posts May 30, 2013

It all started this past December before exams. Fellow blogger Carly and I were discussing the ever-important question, “If you were an animal, which animal would you be?” (I should mention here that, yes, we both understood that we, as humans, are animals in the evolutionary sense; hence, we were referring to wild animals during […]

For Good

by Alumni Posts May 28, 2013

“I’ve heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason, bringing something we must learn. And we are led to those who help us most to grow, if we let them…” The above lyrics are from the final song in my all-time favorite musical, “Wicked.”  I’ve been thinking about these lyrics in […]

Back to Work

by Alumni Posts May 23, 2013

It’s official – as of 11:45 this morning, I’ve been on summer break for one week. And what have I been doing? Working. But not in a bad way. I’ve been having a lot of fun working on projects that I’ve put aside during the school year. I guess it would be better to give […]

Life.

by Alumni Posts April 7, 2013

Today’s weather was gorgeous. As in, practically eighty degrees, a nice amount of sunshine, and very low humidity. And what did I do today? Homework, as usual. And as I was looking at my planner, I realized that I misunderstood my friend and fellow blogger Carly when she said that we have five weeks of […]

I Wish You Could See the Thoughts in My Mind.

by Alumni Posts March 18, 2013

I’d like to take a moment to acknowledge the fact that we’re, what?, a week past the halfway mark of the semester? The sheer amount of stuff I’ve learned in the past eight weeks is kind of really mind-blowing. I’ve learned, for example, what a derivative is. I’ve learned how to take the derivative of […]
