What I'm learning in school this week

Psychology (lecture and lab) - Correlational regression testing and Standard Error.

Religion - Renaissance and the Protestant Reformation. Once again, I seem to be the only person in the class aside from the teacher to have ever heard of, say, Martin Luther.

Biology - Mitosis and Miosis. Sythesis in Miosis is so! totally! cool!

Hawaiian Dance - we just had our mid-term on the meaning and history of and movements for the first verse of 'Ulupalakula. Then we learned the meaning and movements for the next two verses. Beautiful song, beautiful dance. It. Is. Kicking. My. Ass. I most likely got an A on the meanings. I know I only got a B on the movements. Crap.

My Biology lab will be having a mid-term on Tuesday. Biology and Psychology lectures have mid-terms Thursday. We may or may not get a mid-term in Religion on Wednesday, it depends on whether we finish up Christianity on Monday.

So, if I don't seem to be around much this week, you'll think of me chained to my books studying until my eyes bleed, won't you?

As a recovering Catholic, I heart Martin Luther.

Although I recently was reading in a book about early modern England that when the Prots took over, they forbade women and midwives to practice appealing to the Virgin Mary for help in childbirth. Instead, they were supposed to thank God for the pain, since it's the curse of Eve. Boo Protestants!

Wow, it all sounds so fabulous to me. It sounds like you're doing great. "Only a B." Heh. You go, girl!

At my previous institution, a large percentage of my students were self-described evangelical Christians (mostly Baptists) and would regularly attempt to preach to me in or oout of the classroom. Nonetheless, when we discussed various texts of American literature--Mary Rowlandson, say, or John Winthrop--it always astoudned me how few of them knew anything at all about their own religious history.
