I had more honor than that, and I actually tried to learn the material, but that got in the way of actually succeeding in the class.
    I've had lots of classes like this. I *am* enjoying graduate school more, but if I had to do Life again, would do graduate school on its own without adding a full-time job in as well.

    Carl Sagan is awesome. That is all!

    Archaeology would have been my 2nd choice for a major. I *love* studying ancient cultures/civilizations. I went with computer science/software engineering because I figured I would be able to make enough money to go to all these different places, whereas if I did Archaeology I'd probably get stuck focused on one thing.

    During my masters, I worked full-time and went to school full time, because I'm fuckin' insane and just wanted to get it done ASAP but I also wanted to get some experience. During the Ph.D., I'd slacked off a bit--I took two classes a semester. Life was better!

    Our GRAs have it pretty good, and we let them have flexible schedules. I'll be damned if I'm going to get in the way of their education..

    I love all sciences. I'm a Polymath wannabe.
    But specifically I love Psychology. The human brain is simple for me to understand. Behaviors and social motions are as clear as fish in a river to me. So... Pretty natural that that'd be my place of expertise.

    I can't believe this thread got more response than my gene splice thread. What's wrong w u ppl?
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    It depends on the science. I don't care for biology and chemistry. They give me a headache. As a nurse, I surprisingly hated anatomy too. Anything concerning really small details or requiring too much microscope was a big no-no for me. I really really hated microbiology as well. Thank GOD they are over. I did tutor this nice ESL lady in chemistry though. We got through it together. I liked pathophysiology and pharmacology the most. Out of school, I LOVE like those popular quantum physics books that talk about how the universe works and potentials for alternate realities and stuff but only because it gives me something to think about, I'm not too hardcore on that. Popular neuroscience. (Well, not TOO popular, the books have to be somewhat informative/ challenging at least.) Right now I'm reading something about beliefs and how they shape your reality of the world. I forget what it's called. While psychology and neuroscience go hand in hand, I feel like the neuroscience just gives a much more solid, full, awesome picture of what goes on with people. I wish it was a faster advancing field though.
