My weeks

Monday through Thursday, first thing in the morning, I'm in a Psychology class that covers Research Methods and Statistics (really, it's two classes but they're both taught by one professor and he's joined them together). Friday mornings, I take a 3 hour lab for that class. We just got our first test back and, while I got one of the only two A's in the class, I only got the A because he curved pretty steeply. The TA who teaches the lab didn't get all the answers right when he took the test to see why the class did so poorly on it. It's been agreed between them that the questions were written poorly (on the questions I got wrong, 18 out of 21 students picked the same answers as I did). Next time, he's going to let the TA proof the exam before he inflicts it on us.

Mondays and Wednesdays I have Religion. I like this class. Good teacher. He's got a wry sense of humor and led a brief discussion today about Pope Benedict's adventures over the weekend. We're currently covering Judaism (just finished with David and are about to discuss Solomon.) I'm doing my usual Hermione imitation (raising my hand alot and being an insufferable know-it-all), but the scary thing is that everything I know about Judaism comes from various Passover sedars and reading children's fiction (All-of-a-Kind-Family, anyone?)

Tuesdays and Thursdays I have Biology. Loving this teacher. We've just finished covering the cell and will have our first exam on Thursday. Tuesday afternoons I go to a three-hour lab for this class. Last week we tested for protein, starch, reducing sugars, and lipids. Our mystery mixtures were sugar and starch. Tomorrow, we're looking at cells under a microscope.

And, of course, on Friday afternoons I have Hawaiian Dance. Still having trouble with those steps.

I'm in awe. How do you manage to do all this... and sleep? Do you sleep?

I sleep. My house is a disaster area, but I sleep.

I hope you'll have time for me when I'm off work for a while! (Yes, I intend to be a massive time suck for you.)

Holy cow! I tire just reading it!

APL, you're going to get tired of seeing my face. I promise.

I've been trying and trying to think up the name of those books and that's it-- All of a Kind Family. Loved Them!

Glad to hear your first professor is reasonable about how he's going to do the next test to avoid this problem!

I love me some All-of-a-Kind Family. Apparently there's a bio of Sydney Taylor (the author) in the works, and I can't wait.

Everything I know of religion I learned from musicals or Life of Brian.

Really.

And thank goodness my comment worked. I have been trying to comment for over a week and it wasn't working.

No, I don't know why. But it has HEALED ITSELF!
