How to get over quiz anxiety

Quiz quiz quiz

What should I know for the upcoming quiz?

Everything that is related to show biz

Everything that I got wrong

This is my theme song

That’s what I need to review

And Then I’ll drink some brew

And once I have reviewed the material two times

Because I am in my prime

I don’t need to review again

No more pain

I will just glance at it

And then I’ll give it a spit

And move on.

Oh look it’s a fawn

That gave me a bad score on the exam

Now I will have to glance at my notes another time

Until I understand it

And then I will move on.

There are harder challenges up ahead

So I need to get shred!

How is bread able to survive for so long>?

Listen to my rhymes, listen to me spit and watch and learn, from the future master life science!

 

Bread bread bread

Why do you make me so red?

The most essential and basic ingredients to satisfy our meals

So much sex appeal

 

First, Throw some flour

From your 100 ft tower

Next, Throw some water

Taken from Harry Potter

Lastly, Throw some Yeast

But watch out for the Priest!

Don’t forget to add some salt

My writing procrastination

I spent 3 weeks trying to write a 200 word critical thinking paper on how bacteria compete with one another. But it’s getting nowhere.

Research Research Research

Write Write Write

Snooze Snooze Snooze

I think I’ve found an answer

That might give me cancer

But wait, let me stare at this article

For 3 more hours

Now I got sleeping powers

Perhaps I should start writing

Paenibacillus dendritiformis

Stares at the document for another hour.

What a fool I am

Perhaps I should just go with my gut

And become a spam robot

Antibiotics, Fratricide, Bacteriocins

An alternative to preserving food that is safe and efficient

without the use of chemicals

My topic is terrible

Waits another week.

 

procrastination
My number one weakness. Solution: Go with you gut and just do it. Find out what your missing and rewrite. Don’t wait too long

Back to the basics : Cornell Notes

I forgot how to study,

My notes seemed really muddy

I scribbled many things on my paper

Yet remembered nothing

Now I went back to basics

And I’m doing cornell notes now

Now here is something you can chow on

Viruses , viruses that’s what I’m learning

Some contain an envelope and some are naked

But if you keep checking them out

The filoviridae will latch itself onto your eyes

Soon You’ll be eating bloody pies

Inside a body bag

So  wear a biohazard suite and stay away

And be keep swaying your life until the day ends.

Difference between viruses and normal cells

Greetings fellow science enthusiast,

TOday I will explain the main difference between a virus and a cell.

Viruses and cells are two completely different organism.

A virus is very small and cannot be viewed with regular light microscopes. Electron microscopes are required for viewing viruses.

Virus’s do not divide or grow, whereas cells divide and grow regularly.

Viruses are acellular, cells are cellular.

The genome of virsues can be dsDNA, ssDNA, dsRNA, ssRNA, whereas a normal cell is only composed of dsDNA.

 

THank’s for reading yalll. See you next time!

What’s a dimorphic fungus?

A dimorphic fungus can alternative between both yeast and mold body types

They switch based on the environmental conditions that they are currently living within.

 

Examples of Dimorphic Fungi include:

  1. Aureobasidium pullulans
  2. Histoplasma capsulatum
    1. 20°C – 25°C = Mold
    2. 37°C = yeast
  3. Sporothrix spp

Take notes, Practice, Rehearse, Rinse, and Repeat

More of my boring pep talk to help me master a subject that is completely boring but rewarding all at once.

I must master a skill that completely boring

Yet the opportunities are inspiring

Thus I must move on to win this battle

Meiosis, mitosis, the words make me dazzled.

And which step produces genetic variation?

Anaphase II and Prophase I, what is this generation coming to?

It’s been so long since I’ve studied this,

who knew I would need to know it again?

No help is available but the answer is within

The internet that god forbids me from using

Now what am I going to do with this knowledge now that I know it?

Am I going to sell meiosis in the streets?

Yes come on down and meet me

You will see me in the streets

And when you see me in the streets

Just give me a holla

And hand over a dolla

and I’ll pull out some meiosis

To keep you focused

genetic perfection will be yours

To be a master at something

They say that to be good at something you must spend 3 hours a day everyday for ten years practicing until you mastered the concept by heart.

Why is it so hard? I suppose to make it less harder and more enjoyable there should be a reward for completing each task. People wouldn’t normally perform a hard task endlessly unless there is a reward at the end of the road right?

Some ridiculous examples :

Iron fist water slapping : Why do we do this? It makes no sense but the main goal is to build discipline to make our hands toughen over time. What’s the reward? Gaining that new skill set and building destructive palms.

Reading a book : Why do we do this? Nobody knows only god knows!

Reviewing for a quiz:  Can be accomplished by taking a practice quiz and looking up the answers to the problems you got wrong. Repetition works best until your brain is fried. Then reward yourself with some ice cream and get back to your other trainings.

So what is the reward for completing these complicating arduous task? Your reward is ice cream. Just remember, there is ice cream at the end of the road, enough for you to spend 10,000 hours on performing the same old task over and over again.

 

In conclusion I leave you with this image. Why did i get a 60% on this quiz even though I spent so much time studying? Nobody knows, only god knows! I’m assuming I don’t get any ice cream then :(.
