First Impressions

The dreaded first day of school.

I was actually looking semi forward to this happy occasion just because I wanted to get back into a normal routine. Well the morning started off with my roommate and I missing the bus! Parking is crazy here at Weber and I didn't want to buy a parking pass. So we both had to run back to the apartment, get in my truck, and find somewhere to park where we would be close and not ticketed. My first class was math...the last math class I will ever have to take!! It's completely packed...I am forced to sit on the very front row. My teacher is a little crazy, but she has spunk and I really like her personality. And she is making us do puzzles to "help expand our minds and learn how to think outside the box." Like I said a little crazy but she has potential. On to my next class, Geology, where we will be learning about the weather. The only thing I am looking forward to in that class is when we get to learn about lightning! I could sit and watch lightning all day. My teacher is awesome and is very knowledgeable on the subject. Should be a fun class. Now my next class, which is clear on the opposite side of campus, (I should've looked at that before I signed up for my classes...they are all over the place!) I don't really know what to think of it yet. It's Interpersonal Communications, and there are only 25-30 students in the class...which is how it's supposed to be. My teacher looks exactly like Dwight off The Office so do you think I will be able to take him seriously? Heavens no. But my class is so diverse I love it! There are 2 girls from Afghanistan, one from Japan and India, a set of very attractive twins, three boys just "fresh from their mission" and they are completely awkward to talk to. Let’s hope they break out of their bubble soon...for this is a communication class. After that class I get a little break before I make my journey to the other side of campus for my "I'm going to die" class. Bio Med. I am so glad that my roommate is also taking it with me. I force myself to sit on the front row so I will actually pay attention. It actually wasn't really that hard to pay attention though because the stuff we are learning is so fascinating. Basically Bio Med is a class that teaches anatomy, physiology, chemistry, and microbiology in one class. Talk about brain overload! But one thing that really caught my attention was the mentioning of a field trip! Oh how I miss fieldtrips. But this was no ordinary fieldtrip. He announced that our class would be going to the Body Worlds exhibit which is actually coming to Salt Lake. Now if you have no idea what I am talking about, please feel free to click on the link above. They stuff that they can do is amazing! Here is a little blurp from their website: BODY WORLDS features authentic human specimens preserved through a revolutionary process called Plastination. This remarkable preservation technique replaces bodily fluids and fat with reactive plastics, thereby preserving human tissue in its natural state. Visitors who embark on this amazing journey below the skin's surface will view an extensive collection including more than 200 authentic organs, systems and whole-body displays.

So that got me really excited. Well needless to say, I am really excited for things to start rolling along. I am a little overwhelmed right now but I think when next week rolls along I should have my routine down.

YOU ARE GOING TO THE BODY WORLDS EXHIBIT! I AM SO JEALOUS! Does it cost money? When is it? I SO want to go! It's great to hear about your life. Oh, and what are the twins names? Is it Ryan Wight and his brother....totally blanking on the name right now? Just curious. They're way nice for your info. Have a great day!
