    Are techs sometimes too hard on themselves?

    yeah we can be hard on ourselves sometimes, but we are all human and often forget stuff. I do what I can and let the teachers know, but then anything after that is on them. dont be hard on yourself and remember we are all in the same boat - you are not alone. have a good day :)

    Healthy Eating

    just seen this post and thought id let you all in on something that happened to me taking cod liver oil tabs about two years ago.
