It’s weird. I feel back at square 1 again.
…How did I become such an indecisive person??
Regardless of my lack of direction, school is what I need right now. I think my brain missed learning! Speaking of brains… my biopsychology professor (Anne Voorhies) is a ham. She talks fast but it is entertaining and all 300 of us are following her every step of the way. We recently learned that the prefrontal cortex (the area in our brain responsible for planning and “thinking ahead”) is the last area to develop (around age 24). Who decided to let us into college without fully developed brains anyway!?
My global geography of health professor loves to show random pictures from vacations he’s been on to various third world countries and ramble about seemingly unimportant things. The books for the class are supposed to be fascinating reads so this is what I am looking forward to. It is difficult to sit through nearly 2 hours of lecture watching him roll around his big fat tongue everytime he opens his mouth so all of us can see. A direct quote from ratemyprofessor.com about this guy… “Go to class only if you want a good laugh.”
My english teacher seems top notch. There’s no hiding behind our phones or computers here, as all 25 of us are crammed in a tiny room and sitting in a circular shape around one big table. There is a tiny whiteboard at the front of the room for her to scribble on. We spent the first hour of class yesterday brainstorming all the things we hate about writing college papers and why they’re so difficult. My #1 qualm being that if I’m not passionate about what I’m writing about… it will show in my paper.
I’m back on track. Unsure what I’m doing or where I’m going, but at least im going!!
