I don’t have enough patience for science

Hi everyone! I’m Heather and I live in Warrington PA. Since I’m a freshman I’ve been introducing myself to a ton of people. I typically say that I’m from “outside of philly”, but I quickly realized that people legitimately get annoyed if you respond with that answer. I knew that a lot of people from that area went here, but I didn’t know it was the last place people wanted to hear when they asked where you were from.

0492202fbc407df6ac4336d276f2d2e0Im currently undecided, but I am leaning towards a business related major. Personally, I have always liked science. It was one of my favorite subjects throughout middle and high school, but I realized that I am not interested in any profession that has to actually do with science. I don’t have the patience to sit in a lab and hold experiments. I’m the type of person that likes to see immediate results. If I had to conduct an experiment for a year I would grow extremely impatient. For a while I thought that I could go in a different direction of science and try to be in the medical field. I realized after taking anatomy my senior year how that was not going to be an option. My stomach couldn’t handle all that comes with working in a hospital.

I took this SCM 200 because my advisor said that this was a really different class. I have always loved present day science and learning about the innovations that we don’t necessarily hear about everyday. I thought it would be really cool to take a class that doesn’t have the words “bio” or “chem” in it. HERE Is an article that I read in anatomy class about electronic skin. This was one of my favorite present day science break through that we discussed.

    Hey Heather! I’m Ashley and I am freshman as well. I am from Allentown, PA which is also near Philly. I always would say that I lived near Philadelphia because what are the chances someone actually knows the town you are from. Everyone knows Philadelphia so it was always a safe bet to say. Coming to college I was quickly shocked to learn how many people despised hearing that like yourself. Also as I was scrolling through all the blog posts to comment on yours got my attention. The title of your blog “I don’t have enough patience for science” grabbed my attention because I wrote about the same issue in my blog post. Heres a link that might help the two of us out in the future to deal with our inpatient nature. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/09/19/patience-tips_n_5843928.html
