Let’s talk Cells!

Video

Here’s another awesome video that helped me get psyched up for my lecture on cells today. I just love these kinds of videos, especially since they always seem to look like the trailer to some kind of blockbuster movie haha! Enjoy! 🙂

The Beginning

Video

So… let me introduce myself. My name is Kafi and this blog is the beginning of my life studying a Biochemistry course for the first time at UWI. Fun :)! I’m not sure how it will go, but I’m determined to make it as enjoyable as I can by watching videos (because I’m a YouTube junkie) and admiring artwork inspired by topics that I will learn along the way in my BIOL1362 class. Since I lurk Deviant Art regularly, I plan to combine these two hobbies to help me express how I feel and what I think of this course so far.  At first I just assumed that Biochemistry was just Biology and Chemistry combined (which it is to an extent). BUT after watching this amazing video (and googling some good definitions) to prepare me for my first biochem class, I’ve come to the conclusion that Biochemistry, in layman’s terms, studies the chemical processes and transformations in living organisms.  So far this course is really starting to grab my attention and hopefully each post I make on this blog will make you love Biochemistry as much as I do now. Watch the video, it’s filled with really cool graphics and has epic dramatic music. Enjoy!
