Hello, loves! Just wanted to hop on here and jot down some of the thoughts I’ve been having tonight. Although this blog is mainly fashion and beauty related, these random little moments are a part of my life, and make this online collection of writings even more raw and authentic. Recently I’ve been struggling a little bit with one of my classes, that class being Chemistry. I know that’s probably a typical occurrence for a college student: struggling in a class you frankly couldn’t care less about. Especially since I caught the flu twice, I fell a bit behind in the class and missed some major assignments.
Chem is my very last general education requirement that I have to complete before graduating. If you’ve been to university, you’d know that most G.E. courses aren’t exactly ones you’d choose to take if you had that opportunity. However, even though it’s probably the farthest away you could possibly get from my major, I’m trying to look at it from a different angle. Finding appreciation in something that simply doesn’t spark your interest is an idea I want to work on in my own life. Every major and honestly everything in life has a purpose and I want to find the good in all of it.
At times in this college experience, I’ve found sometimes my artistic major isn’t exactly appreciated or understood. That has never hindered my love for art or my obsession with design. I’ve continued to grow and hone my craft regardless of what has been said to me or the opinions of others who simply don’t want to understand. I never want to be that close-minded. So although science has never been my “thing,” I’m trying to see it as a break from my hours of designing for my portfolio. Life couldn’t exist without chemistry, or in the broader sense, science, so I suppose I should be grateful. That sounds a little dumb, but my point is there’s good in every detail of school, life, friendships, families, etc, even if it seems minuscule or obvious.
I have such a respect for scientists, doctors, and anybody who works in that field. I certainly couldn’t be involved in it, so it amazes me to meet people who have a passion for it. Everything works in a system and society couldn’t function properly without the doctor, the artist, the writer, the environmental scientist, the sociologist, and all the rest! Looking at the world in this way, with a wide angle lens and not being judgmental towards things you don’t understand is vital to your own happiness, in my opinion. Respecting the passions of others is a great quality in a person, and something I want to strive to do every day of my life. So I think for today, I’ll apply this to Chemistry and see the good in these little atoms and molecules.
I hope you guys enjoyed this little rant and that it gave you some new perspectives. I love this community of positivity, so I can’t wait to read your guys’ comments about this topic! Let me know your thoughts below and we can have further discussion! Have a great night, everyone!
