Hi! My name is Jane Uy. I was a student at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo majoring in chemistry. In fact, I just got a job in San Diego at Arena Pharmaceuticals. I know Chemistry sounds like a really hard major, but I love it. I owe it all to my high school AP Chemistry teacher Mr. Gonzales. He was the one who introduced me to fantastic explosions with magnesium! :) I never knew chemistry could be so much fun! But don't get me wrong, it is definitely hard to master. In fact i'm still trying to figure it out! Chemistry is a great thing to learn because it is involved in so many aspects of our everyday life. Here are some links to get you started:

Chemistry isn't my only love. I have a lot of hobbies. I like to cook. I like to sew. I'm a really crafty person. My friends call me an asian Martha Stewart.I suppose some would take offense, but I actually kinda like Martha Stewart (even though she is a little strange!) I used to run track in high school. My event was the 100m and 300m hurdles. I still run occasionally, but I'm just not as motivated anymore. I love to write. I love writing long letters to old friends and new friends. I like imagining a person's face as they open their mailbox and find a letter stuffed with thoughts. I write in my journal as a release. It's really therapeutic, you should try it sometime.

oh and if you didn't already guess, Chococat is my favorite Sanrio character.

love life
we are mistaken in thinking that falling in love is a rarity...
actually, it happens all the time.
we fall in love whenever we give ourselves to the moment
and experience in our hearts the pure essence of joy.
for in that moment, we fall in love
with life.
