My Life in Perspective
The summer of 1999 was spent hanging out on the sands of Brighton Beach in Brooklyn, New York dreaming about how my life would change when I entered my freshman year of college later that fall. The college life excited and intrigued me. Lying under the warm sun, I made big plans for my future. In just four short years I would be teaching America’s youth and inspiring them, as so many of my teachers had inspired me. Never in my wildest dreams would I imagine myself 27 years old working at an animal hospital struggling to pay my bills.
The aspirations of being a teacher and owning my own home by the age of 25 has been... View More »

Our relationship was wonderful but early in my junior year my mother called to let my know she was going to have to go through chemotherapy. I faced the decision to stay in New York to finish the last year of college, or move back home to help my mother with her family during the 47 week round of therapy.
I moved back to the Dallas area after completing my junior year. I was living with my mother, her husband, my 2 year old half sister, and my two preteen stepsisters. The strain of the long distance would soon end the relationship I had with Herman. I was under tremendous pressure trying to replace my mother and take over all of her responsibilities. She is a wife, mother, homemaker, and practice manager of her husband’s family care clinic and I was not prepared for this level of responsibility. The discovery of the abusive actions my mother’s husband showed towards her and his children was also a shock. Due to my strong will, I was very vocal with my feelings, and shortly before my mother’s therapy was completed, I was asked to leave the house.
I lived with friends for a while and then after saving some money, I acquired my own apartment. This is when I truly had the feeling that I as grown up. I lived in a one bedroom apartment so I was responsible for all of the bills and had to fend for myself. Since there were harsh feelings towards me from my mother and her husband, I got no assistance during my move. I spent a lot of time by myself with my two dogs in that apartment. Although, there was no one to talk to, during that year and a half, I did a lot ...

    Biological Sciences Initiative HHMI Student Activities Measuring Antibiotic Resistance (Kirby-Bauer) Introduction: You might be aware that antibiotics were once thought of as a “magic bullet;” a nearly perfect drug for combating bacteria. We should have known that things are never that simple. If we use the three domains model for classification (bacteria, archea, and eucarya), then there are more than a dozen different kingdoms of Bacteria. Thinking this way, we readily see that bacteria are too diverse for any one drug to kill them all. Some antibiotics come cl

    Molecular Weight

    ABSTRACT The effect of molecular weight and time on the rate of diffusion was resolved using the agar-water gel test. A petri dish containing three wells was used in the the agar-water gel set up. One drop of each of the three substances, potassium permanganate (KMnO4), potassium dichromate (K2Cr2O7) and methylene blue, was placed to each well at the same time. The potassium permanganate, having the smaller molecular weight of 158 g/mole, resulted the larger diameter (1.44mm) and the fastest rate of diffusion (0.029 mm/min) while the methylene blue, having the larges

    Membrane Physiology And Cell Structure

    1181 words - 5 pages

    The cell membrane is a fluid structure that is made up of phospholipids and proteins. Its main function is to allow osmosis and diffusion to occur in a cell. It protects a cell from taking in molecules that are too large and other chemicals that are not permeable without energy being used. The cell membrane is considered to be selectively permeable because it does not allow the non-fat soluble chemicals and the larger molecules in, but it does allow fat soluble chemicals and small molecules to pass into the cell. In order for the larger molecules and non-fat chemicals to enter the cell pr
