I am a junior in college. I am currently majoring in biology, and minoring in chemistry. I had origninally planned on going to medical school, but I'm not sure it's right for me. I am certain I want to go to graduate school, but am not sure how long after obtaining my bachelors I would like to persue more education.
I hear often that a biology major can be completely useless, unless I want to be a doctor. I am passionate about biology, so I feel as though I should continue with this major, especially since I am nearing the end of my bachelors.
I am not so sure about my minor now, however. What good will a chemistry minor do for me? I'm considering completing a buisness minor instead, because I feel it will give me more practical skills. I'm not sure how a biology major and a buisness minor will go together though.
My biggest fear is graduating, struggle to find a job, and feeling like I wasted my time and money on a worthless degree.
[Edit] Thank you! I am so grateful for everybody, bio majors or not, who came here to help set me straight and offer advice. I am also grateful for the individual who offered sugar daddy services. I think it might be spam, but I will consider it!!
I'm fucked. I have been going through a family situation since 2016. My dad has abandoned my mom to me, and I was supposed to be her meal ticket.
Currently I have $134k in student debt, my mom's $93k mortgage, and my credit card debt is going to be up $3k within 6 months.
I only have a bachelor's in Biology from a fine, okayish state university. I went directly into medical school afterwards.
While she can pay off my debt with the assets she gained from the divorce, I refuse to touch it as that is her retirement and she has nothing else to lean on. As an immigrant, her English skills aren't good enough and she does have an outdated nursing certificate and experience as a daycare assistant. She recently worked as a nanny, which she cannot continue to do because she has osteoarthritis and slipped discs affecting her ability to lift heavy things. She was recently laid off but makes ends meet as an occasional babysitter.
The options I'm looking at:
I'm seriously considering using the rest of my savings $40K to pay off the mortgage, leave a holographic will naming her the executor and beneficiary, and then killing myself in a location where my dad who disowned me can find my corpse.
DO NOT RECOMMEND ME TO SEEK MENTAL HEALTH. I HAVE NO HEALTH INSURANCE AND NO AMOUNT OF THERAPY IS GOING TO IMPROVE MY FINANCIAL SITUATION
Are you currently struggling to practice for your IB exams?
That's why my friend and I, two IB alumni from 2017, have been working on a way of enhancing your studying for your science paper 1 exams. We have put all past papers in the form of an interactive webapp so that you can practice wherever you are. You can sort by subject and topic and you also get some analytics about your recent performance and what you can improve on. We’re also working on writing explanations to the solutions for all the questions.
We have just finished creating the beta version of our web application for desktop and tablet! Feel free to check it out at pastpape.com
Please give us feedback and let us know your opinion!
since there currently isn’t a mega thread, how was the paper for those who took today’s paper?
