The Difference Between Academics and Learning

By | June 23rd, 2020|Categories: How to Adult, How to Student|Comments Off on The Difference Between Academics and Learning

The Difference Between Academics and Learning I always rushed through school. As a kid, I’d calculate the rate of textbook chapters completion I needed to maintain to finish in April instead of May. I worked straight through any optional breaks so I would finish at noon instead of mid-afternoon. School seemed like a necessary evil. It was something I knew I had to do to be successful, but it seemed so pointless all at the same time. “Real life” had nothing to do with Earth Science, English Literature or Algebra. “Real life” was about solving problems and getting things done.

What I Wish I Knew As An Online STEM Major

By | June 2nd, 2020|Categories: How to Student|Comments Off on What I Wish I Knew As An Online STEM Major

What I Wish I Knew As An Online STEM Major When I decided that I wanted to be a 'scientist' when I grew up, I had very little knowledge of what it would take to get there. Sure, I loved every science class I could get my hands on in high school. Sure, I pushed myself to go places in math. I even went for that Introduction to Computer Science high school course, wondering why on earth everyone was talking about how the ability to draw red lines and blue dots with Java would be so impactful for my future.
