Wait…what?

Hey everyone! My name is Marvin Barnhill and I’m a sophomore majoring in Labor and employment Relations. I hope to one day become a Human Resources executive or even a Lawyer. I’m taking this class to fill my requirements but also to give science one last attempt. In high school the practicality of science was never taught, and i struggled incredibly just to get B’s. However, my sophomore year in high school I had the best chemistry teacher who was able to give us real world examples of the things we were learning as well as give us great learning tools. Unfortunately, every other teacher was not that dedicated to the education of their students, as a result, science and I just don’t mix well.

I used to sit in class and try my hardest to put things together, but in the end I would end up saying/thinking “Wait…what?” And no matter how many tutoring sessions or extra work I received, I still couldn’t get with science. I have however found a passion for people and interactions. The liberal arts is just where I need to be. Everything liberal arts has been teaching me are things I actually want to learn and are truly eye opening. If only the same could be said for math and science courses. I will say that I took Math 034 (Math with money) and loved it. Maybe a similar story can ┬ábe told of this class. I’m excited to find out!

P.S. I love music, here’s chance the rapper

    Hi Marvin.
    As I was scrolling through the course blog trying to find someone to reply to, your image immediately caught my eye. When I read your post, I saw that your story and mine were the same. I struggled doing well in high school science, besides my physics class because my teacher truly put in the work to make the other students enjoy it in real world examples. Science for me was always a drag. Chance the Rapper on the other hand is my guy. I have been a fan since 2012/2013 with the releasing of his own mixtapes 10 Day and Acid Rap and have followed him ever since. Here is a link talking about the creating of his most recent work, Coloring Book.
