SOUND: ON 🎙 
The hydroxide ions in the acidic ACV reacts with the ANions in basic baking soda to create carbon dioxide (this is why I cough every time I do these treatments)- a useless byproduct, however, the second part of the reaction includes decomposition which has strong emulsifying properties. This reaction itself does not break down build up in locs. Paired with the right type of shampoo, given the new chemical properties of the unwanted buildup (most of the time product with Excessive amounts of Shea butter), the shampoo (negative charge) is now able to bind with the unwanted buildup (usually full of saturated fatty acids- which are extremely difficult to remove since they’re solid at room temperature) and be removed via a thorough rinsing. Is your loctician well versed in biochemical theory? Fact check @khrs.night feel free to add anything I might have missed.

Today's Organic Chemistry lab was quite interesting. We took our benzil crystals (after taking its mass, mp, and IR spectrum) and reacted it with a couple things (Dibenzyl Ketone, KOH & EtOH), waited, and made tetraphenylcyclopentadienone crystals! Phew!

Continuation of my Physical Chemistry Lab experiment. Next time, I'll complete setting up the vials/flasks and eventually make two more so I can titrate.

Happy hump day!  Did you know traditional tiramisu dessert 🍰🍰 is made with alcohol 🍷🥃? Alcohol and dessert sounded like a good combination for a mnemonic on a hump day 🐪. We hope this helps you memorize alcohol containing amino acids. Follow us at @biochem_101 to get more helpful tips before your exams.

Requested content coming through! Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide is an enzyme cofactor. NAD is a dinucleotide because it contains two nucleotides, nicotinamide mononucleotide and adenosine monophosphate, joined together through their phosphate groups. If you remember, nucleotides contain a base, a ribose and a phosphate group. Nicotinamide monophosphate contains nicotinamide as a base, whereas adenosine monophosphate contains adenine as a base. .

So this was Physical Chemistry: Thermodynamics Lab on February 6th - Conductance of Solution. I had to take a solution and dilute it three times (for a total of four flasks), each, I diluted to half its strength and found out how that changed the conductance. Then I had to do the mathematics/chemistry and prepare two other solutions myself; I likewise had to dilute it 3 times. So 12 solutions total, which took a couple of hours (at least). It was kind of fun... @Twitter: https://twitter.com/KenslowMatthew/status/1227067707796774912

👩‍🏫How to make a good impression on professors:👩‍🏫
I have great relatiosnips with my professors and wanted to share some tips I have so you can too!
📣show up on time and sit near the front.  I find that I am more involved in the class if I sit near the front. Obviously showing up on time makes a good impression
📣I only take notes on paper.  People have idffrent learning styles, so do whatever works for you.  The good thing about paper notes is that you can't distracted by notifications, and for me, I stay more engaged in the class.
📣Ask questions and go to office hourswhen you're stuck.  You shouldn't feel bad or like you're wasting their time.  They became a professor becaue they like to teach (hopefully). And seeking out help when you struggle shows perservence.  Plus it make great material for a letter of rec.

📚choosing a major as a premed: Myths and facts📚
❌you need to major in premed
📍truth: premed is NOT a major!! Being a premed student means that you are taking all the pre requisite courses required by medical schools!  This includes biology, chemstiry, math, engish, physics and others.  It's a collection of classes you need to have a background in to do well in medical school.  You can take them along with most majors
❌you need to major in biology to do premed successfully
❌...or at least a science
📍Nope, you dont need to major in biology to be a pre med student. It's a populat choice because a lot of the pre med pre reqs are also required to graduate with a biology degree, so many students like to be using their pre med reqs to work towards hteir major too.  However, it is totally possible to do almost any major!
📍so..... how to choose??
pick something youa re interesed in.  You'll be studying for four years, so hopfully it's something you like learning about.  I would also consider a major with related careers you would like if medical school does not work out.  AKA is htere a plan B your major allows??
❓What advice do you all have about picking a major?  How did you select yours?

📚my favorite classes📚
since it's the start of a new semster, i thought i would share some the classes I have enjoyed the most from both high shcool and college.  If your shcool offers these, take them if you can!
🔸 In high school my favorites were AP bio and anatomy.  I loved all htings human bdy related!
🔸 In college I have liked Brain and Behavior (intro neuroscience course). It also had a lab which was really fun.  I learned so much!
🔸 I love phsycholocy courses!  Intro pysch was intersting, but I liked child developmental much more.  And there are so many ones that sound awesome which I haven't taken, hence the reason I am minoring in psychology!
🔸My favorite biology classes in college have been immunology and physiology, I just find them so interesting!
🔸I am looking forward to anatomy and hoping I cna fit in a nutrition class! 💬What about you all?  Favorite class??
PS: I updated my highlight covers , and I'm real excited about it, go take a peek!

7 years ago today, I became Student of the Semester for Anatomy - a fun class I took in 12th grade. I miss it as much as my college mathematics classes (no joke).
This was a fun morning 7 years ago before school. We all met at the church across the street for a big celebration and recognition.
I was known for my unbelievable memory and art skills in that class.

This year was the year that I was supposed to graduate college. ( class of 2020’) When I first went away to college I honestly THOUGHT I had a passion for law. But my first year I flunked out and I was depressed. I decided to go back home to a community college and complete my prerequisites there (currently here now). But I honestly feel that it was God’s plan. My college journey was so confusing coming straight out of high school and thinking I had it all planned out and I was the first generation to go to college in my family. I had a lot of pressure on my end. But I am so grateful that I am sticking through it. And I am so grateful for where I am today. 2 years ago on this day I barley had any credits but now I am going into the semester finishing my pre-nursing preqs. How amazing is that. I am extremely blessed and grateful I am very happy that everything went the way it did💖 I am going to make this year rewarding for myself! I’m only 21 and I keep forgetting I’m not going to have everything together at this age #atiteas #prenursingmajor #anatomyandphysiology #microbiology #prenursing #premed #collegestudent #genchem #studygram #predental #medicalstudent #ochem #mcat #pcat #premedstudent #prepharmstudent #studyingdatdestroyer #chemistrymajor #biochemmajor #nursing #chemistrystudent #student #medicine #healthcare #prepa #study #futurenurse #nurse #tuc #antibiotics

I’m only 21 and I keep forgetting I’m not going to have everything together at this age #atiteas #prenursingmajor #anatomyandphysiology #microbiology #prenursing #premed #collegestudent #genchem #studygram #predental #medicalstudent #ochem #mcat #pcat #premedstudent #prepharmstudent #studyingdatdestroyer #chemistrymajor #biochemmajor #nursing #chemistrystudent #student #medicine #healthcare #prepa #study #futurenurse #nurse #tuc #antibiotics
Received my textbooks, lab manuals, and lecture notes for the semester! Luckily my professor sent over videos over the break so we can get a head start. Just organizing myself at this point. A lot of my classmates called me crazy for taking both classes (AP and Micro) but I am willing to take risks. These are my last to two classes why not knock them out. I created a study schedule over the break to help myself out.  #atiteas #prenursingmajor #anatomyandphysiology #microbiology #prenursing #premed #collegestudent #genchem #studygram #predental #medicalstudent #ochem #mcat #pcat #premedstudent #prepharmstudent #studyingdatdestroyer #chemistrymajor #biochemmajor #nursing #chemistrystudent #student #medicine #healthcare #prepa #study #futurenurse #nurse #tuc #antibiotics

Hey you guys my name is “D” I made a private page for motivational purposes for myself and others. I am 21 years old and I am a pre-nursing student! I start classes Monday I am pretty nervous about it but I have so much Faith in myself!!! I wanted to create a page to follow people who are very motivated and headed into the same direction I am going. I will be posting my experiences here throughout my journey. Praying that everything will go well!!! Good luck for those who starts school next week ! 🤓💪 #atiteas #prenursingmajor #anatomyandphysiology #microbiology #prenursing #premed #collegestudent #genchem #studygram #predental #medicalstudent #ochem #mcat #pcat #premedstudent #prepharmstudent #studyingdatdestroyer #chemistrymajor #biochemmajor #nursing #chemistrystudent #student #medicine #healthcare #prepa #study #futurenurse #nurse #tuc #bhfyp

Did I really want that 4.0? Yes, but a 3.92 for my first semester  @asuonline  with 16 units no less makes me feel accomplished. I worked my ass off and it payed off. P.S. 7.5 week courses that cover the same amount of material as a 16 week course are no freakin joke 😱 #biochemistry #biochemmajor #stemgirls #asuonline #asu #sundevils #workhardsleephard #exhausted #breaktime #chemistry #biology

Why did I start my own club?

In my freshman year as a STEM major, I was struggling. I struggled with confidence, my classes...I felt like an imposter. I began noticing that in many of my classes me and other girls easy stuck out in a sea of male faces. I realized that being a female STEM student made me different and made me feel alone...until I began talking to other female STEM students. I found that I wasn’t the only one having these feelings and then I knew I needed to do something to bring female STEM students together. I set to work with my best friend and Women in STEM was born! One semester later and we are a booming organization dedicated to the college, our STEM departments, and club members!

Stressed out about your finals? Not sure how to finish the semester strong? You and every other college girl out there. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In order to properly prepare and study for your final exams, you’ll need to be able to answer these five questions.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Question 1️⃣: What’s going to be on your exam?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Question 2️⃣: What’s the format?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Question 3️⃣: How will you study?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Question 4️⃣: What are your weak areas?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Question 5️⃣: When will I study?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You also need to know how to tweak things based on where you currently are - if you're semester has gone pretty well you'll be approaching the end of your semester differently than someone who is borderline passing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I dive into all of this on this episode of SheRocks@College LIVE!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Ever since I got my first planner in 6th grade I’ve been obsessed with color-coded schedules, simple organization, productivity and time management.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I was in college I was juggling 5,000 things and I’ve always had a planner to keep track of it all.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Planning out my week, getting things out of my head has always felt like such a sacred ritual for me. It’s grounding.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For me, it's less about obsessing over the need to follow the plan to a "T" and more about giving myself the space to consider what's TRULY important, what can wait, what needs to change and intentionally choose what I GET TO give my time to.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What's your relationship with planning like?

WHY YOU'RE NOT A GOOD STUDENT ANYMORE.
Most of the college women I talk to every week have similar stories. They were good students in High School but when they got to college it all changed. This is why good students do badly in college.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1️⃣Beliefs and Expectations: Good students often have this image, story or idea of what the college experience should feel like and look like for them and this is often based on their past experience or what they've been taught by family, society, friends, or religion. When these beliefs/expectations don't match what they're experiencing it leads students to do crazy things to try and make what they are experiencing match the beliefs/expectations they have.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2️⃣Misconceptions: Good students sometimes have misconceptions, which are opinions based on faulty thinking or understanding. These misconceptions can be around the role professors play and the role a student plays in education. Around what studying really is, around what should be on the test and what shouldn't, around the amount of effort things require, around how long things should or shouldn't take, around what it takes and doesn't take to succeed in the class. When students can't breakdown misconceptions, it becomes difficult to figure out and solve the problem of why they're not doing well despite their best efforts. This causes students to focus on changing or doubling down on the wrong things.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3️⃣Lack of Skills: College isn't high school and what happens to good students is that they believe the study skills, productivity skills, time management skills, test-taking skills and thinking skills they used in high school will transfer to college, and if they just put in more study time it will work itself out. But college is a whole different game. Which means you need a whole different set of skills.

College success is multifaceted. That's why I built-into The College Productivity Kit prompts, checklists and tools to help students in all of these 3 areas.

“My name is J. Kai Simmons, and I graduated college with a B.S. in Biochemistry. I currently attend the University of Kansas School of Medicine with aspirations to become a Head and Neck Surgeon. I was inspired to pursue higher education by seeing how hard my mom worked to earn her Ph.D. while raising 3 children. With a love for science and people, and a knack for working with my hands, surgery is a natural fit for me! Medical school has changed who I am for the better and I look forward to continually growing in the future.” —- So proud of you, J. Kai!!! Very inspiring!! Keep pushing and keep being great!! 💪🏾

Physics during my layover because I obviously hate myself 🙃 #biochemmajor #physicsisawful #womeninstem
Physics during my layover because I obviously hate myself 🙃 #biochemmajor #physicsisawful #womeninstem
I graduated 2nd in my class from a low income, inner-city high school where all you had to do to earn good grades was hand in your worksheets, not talk back to the teachers, flip over desks, start fights or show up high to class. So let's just say the standard was set real low.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Saying I was grossly underprepared for college is an understatement. I went to a rich ass PWI where I felt way out of my league both intellectually and financially and it showed in my confidence and grades. I did the best I could with what I knew but by the time I was a junior I had failed out of or taken a WD in over 7 classes.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I hid how much I was struggling for as long as I could out of pure embarrassment and shame. It took almost 4 years after I left that college before I could even walk back on that campus, that's how much it impacted my self-worth and confidence.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Junior year when my advisor asked me what my plans were and I told her Medical School, she told me I would never get in because intellectually I just didn't have what it takes. It was like she took one look at my grades and GPA and already decided which box I could be neatly packed into.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That was it, my 2.0 GPA predetermined all the potential I would ever amount to. That was the first time I realized nobody was coming to save me.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So I decided to save my damn self.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It started off at first with mindset books because my self-worth around academics was all kinds of messed up.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I taught myself how to read textbooks effectively, how to take notes I could later use to test myself and prepare for exams, how to actually talk to and build relationships with my professors so I could have them as a support system, and how to balance school, work, health, and an amazing relationship. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I grew so much during that time when I graduated nursing school at 26 with honors I was so damn proud of myself.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You're smart enough, capable enough and worthy enough of college and life success no matter your circumstances, background or past failures

5️⃣ Elements of a Study Routine you’ll actually stick to:

1️⃣ Goals: Get clear on what academic experience you’re trying to create. Keeping in mind the woman you want to be when college is over and you can’t use “student” as your identity anymore.

2️⃣ Study Schedule: When will you choose to Study today? At the end of the day it’s YOUR life and most things that are on your to-do list you put there. So get intentional about it.

3️⃣ Study Routine: What will you DO during that study Time. The reason why you waste time is because you’re not clear about the outcome you want at the end of your study sessions.

4️⃣ Mindset and Emotional Management: The most important thing to have down if you want to do what you say you’re going to do when you say you’re going to do it. DM if you want to know what I mean with this one. I’ll help you get your whole life. Because this is the number one reason why you struggle to stay consistent every semester.

5️⃣ Community and Support: Identify the people and resources you’ll go to for help when you need it. This is how you keep moving forward when you’re stuck.

Which one of these is missing in your study process? Tell me in the comments 👇🏾✍🏾

This semester has been easy except for Physics. I am so mad but for the first time in my college career I had to drop a class. Here's why. First exam average: 56%. 50% of the class got less than a 50%. I got a 44, which was better than a bunch of people who only got a whole 13% on the test. Seriously there was about 10 or so people. Anyway I have 1 more test today and another on Monday. Please send help.
