    May the LORD bless you and keep you;

    and give you peace.

    When your shared disdain
    of Orgo forms a friendship
    Life lessons learned at Rutgers:
    1. Life is not a sprint, it’s a
    marathon
    2. Don’t compare yourself (or
    your grades to others). You’re
    unique in more ways than
    you realize.
    3. Orgo isn’t as scary as it looks
    but go to office hours.
