Re: Comfort Movies

If I really want to get my mind off of work and studying, I tend to lean more towards suspenseful/thriller type movies--that way I get caught up in the movie and forget about all my troubles :)

Re: Study Tips

Using Youtube videos to help better explain the content really helped me out in chem 14a, so I plan on doing the same thing this quarter. I watched ALOT of The Organic Chemistry Tutor.

Re: Study Habits

After taking Chem 14a, I realized that I didn't fully take advantage of the extra help that was available--outside of lecture. So this quarter I'm trying my best to attend as many sessions as possible.

Re: Thoughts on Switching Majors?

I am currently on the pre-med track, but I started off as a Biochem major and when I realized that the course outlook for the major didn't fit me--I switched to just Bio. At first I was nervous to switch, but the process is so easy and welcoming-- so it was cool :)

I like to watch "coming of age" movies for comfort--so usually like, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Edge of Seventeen, Lady Bird, etc. I don't really know why, but films like this align my chakra lol. Especially on a cloudy day.

Re: Changing Study Habits

The UA sessions were such a big help with studying!! All the out of lecture sessions were helpful in general, hopefully I get to attend more sessions next quarter, in 14B. I also want to start watching Youtube videos in conjunction with the lectures, rather than waiting till review.

Look for existing Quizlets! Since this class has been around for a bit, it more than likely has a few pre-made review flashcard sets. Also, I will be reviewing the hw and text-book questions--and watching YouTube vids for topics that I struggle with.

Midterm 1 rocked me--definitely--and I found midterm 2 tough too, but I felt more antiquated with the format of the test and therefore felt more comfortable. It's very sus though--that we can only miss a couple of questions to receive a good grade, since there are only a few questions.
