Gotta love being assigned a poster project, not having any criteria beyond a vague grading rubric (copy-pasted from a completely different assignment), being given masters/PhD posters as examples, having had our experimental design dumbed down because it "wasn't supposed to be complicated," and then making us present them. Because there's so much mystery involved in what salinity of water a mealworm prefers to drink I swear, if they try dragging this out tonight I'm going to lose my mind.
This Press Release assignment in my Biology Lab class is killing my writer's soul. The sample of a "good" press release is filled with grammatical errors and atrocious sentence structure. I really hope this is just a one off, because I may need to change my personal mission in life to "pushing for scientists to polish their papers prior to publication" otherwise.
You know your prof is really horrendous at their job when you feel completely panicked about the midterm until you read through the textbook and go "Oh... this is easy." It takes skill to make something as logical as physics so incredibly confusing in class.
"If you were to ask friends and family what carbohydrates do in your body, they would probably say something like "They give you energy." And you'd agree, but only after pointing out that carbohydrates are also used in cell identity, as a structural material, and as a source of carbon atoms for the synthesis of other complex molecules."
And this ^^^ is why you don't have any friends, Karen.
Funny how I felt totally wide awake right up until I had to crack open this biology textbook to study lol. "Is it 10pm yet? Can I go to bed and cram some more tomorrow? Oh... it's only 3:45pm? I see...."
