Thoughts of a Bio Major

Did anyone else arbitrarily choose a major of interest when applying to college? Yeah, I was one of those people.

Don’t get me wrong: I’m a bio major and biology is awesome. I'm studying biology with concentrations in global public health and social health disparities in relation to income, race, and more. I love it because everything I learn was and still is such a big part of my experience growing up in Boston’s immigrant community.

But there are always those days when I question not only my actions but my existence in general. I end up just watching Netflix… and then working on my genetics problem sets.

These are the thoughts that every bio major probably has on a regular basis, as told by some hilarious TV shows.

1. Did I actually choose biology as my major?

2. Okay… so what is DNA?

3. Time to spend another 3 hours reading this one chapter a million times to actually understand what they’re saying.

4. Would it be so bad to drop out of college?

5. How come NO ONE else is confused?

6. *after going to office hours or SI session once*

7. Maybe I should sign up for this lab research assistant position…

8. Walking into an exam that you are 110% not ready for.

9. When you have to do anything in bio lab (especially that gel electrophoresis thingy).

10. Getting mad at whoever decided you should study biology… then realizing it was you who decided you should study biology.

11. Remembering you chose this major for a reason and at the end of the day, that’s what matters.

Keep on keeping on, my fellow biology majors. And don’t forget that Bozeman Science on YouTube always has your back. #MrAndersen
