This week I am sharing some of my favorite chocolate inspiration. Recipes, nutrition, etc.
Today I thought I would share with you a question I get asked often…What do you do?
What do I do? Well, that is a good question! What does a modern day chemist really do and how does it pertain to this blog? Especially since I share so many different things on the blog, it appears that my taste is very eclectic. Which is very true, I have many passions, hobbies and things that bring joy to my life.
I studied chemistry and mathematics in college, but I never really knew “what I wanted to be when I grew up.” I just knew I loved math and science, and I was good at it. As a bonus, I also studied horticulture (gardening) and even ornithology (birds).
What totally fascinated me with chemistry though, was the fact that every process, every element and every living thing on earth is made up of chemistry. Our own bodies would fall apart without millions of chemical processes happening every second. On top of that, two of my most favorite things in the word, chocolate and coffee, are made into things we love all with chemistry.
That is why I chose chocolate as my final research project in college. I learned so many things about it, it is always one of my favorite things to share with you.
Anyways, back to what I do. During the last few semesters of school, I started tutoring other college students in advanced chemistry and math. It started out as just a hobby, buy I really enjoyed helping others. Since then, I have tutored for very large firms online and locally.
I also edit and write for an academic company.
A few months ago, I decided it was time to put all my academic consulting together in one place, so I started a website for all those services. You probably see that on my sidebar: Academic Consulting.
Blogging was something that has been in the back of my mind for almost a year. I always help friends and family garden, bake and work on projects. I decided it would be great to do the same for anyone.
Another thing I am passionate about is health and nutrition. I have shared with you now a few different posts on Rheumatoid Arthritis and health in general. Sharing and helping others who are also struggling with this is another thing I love doing on this blog.
This brings me back to chemistry…medicine, nutrition and health are all possible due to chemistry!
So, what do I do? I am a chemist, writer, editor, tutor, consultant and blogger 🙂
I love that chemistry is responsible for all the things we love to do. Especially in the blogging world of baking, cooking, crafting, gardening, and health. And just for fun, here is a picture of me walking across the stage 🙂
Have a wonderful day!
