A&P

Anatomy and Physiology is a relativly hard class, not because the material is hard, or uninteresting, but because there is so much that must be memorized.  I am amazed at the funny little names that they put on the projections, dents and holes in the bones.  There is a name for every bone in the body and then ten names about the parts and things on every single bone!!!  Oh and then there is the inside of the bones and who knows what there will be when I get to the joints, muscles and organs.  And I just thought I had to learn all the bones and muslces. 

Going back to school has been exilerating and wonderful but also a big stress.  I spend more time than I ever did in any other class in college doing homework for these courses.  two papers due in a week or two, a test every week in Anatomy and massages to do daily and memorize the actions to.  Oh and did I mention that I have to memorize all the parts on the feet that correspond to the organs of the body.  All of this and there are only 7 weeks left of the quarter then there are the finial exams that I have to remember all the information for and spit it back out.  My memory has never been that great, and now I am asking it to recall forever all the things I am learning in this compact 10 weeks - ( then a year).  It is a bit insane!  But, I love it! 

I wish I could be one of those eternal students that I use to see up at USU that would go to school for years and years.  That would be my dream!  I would love to get a masters degree or even a phD!

Congrats on being back in school. I'm sure the social scene isn't what it was back when we were roomies, but it sounds really exciting.

It is interesting that you and Paul are learning the same things and that you are both discovering the mystery and majesty of the most incredible and amazing machine ever created - the human body. Who, understanding the amazing intricacies of the body, could doubt the reality of an all wise, all knowing creator?
