Several colleagues have asked me recently what's going on with my adventures in geology. Apparently, I haven't been talking about it much. I guess that's because I've realized, in spite of my lack of background in the science, that there's a reason it's a 1000-level class. It's easy. Go to lecture, take notes, go to lab, take a quiz, take a test every now and then . . . I'm learning a lot, don't get me wrong, but this class is just dead easy.
Perhaps things will be different in the spring when I take chemistry. But it also is a 1000-level class, so I'm not sure.
In the meantime, last week was advising week. Advising week is hell, aside from the entertaining moment when one of my advisees described her major (majors changed to protect the innocent):
"Well, I'm a science education major, with a minor in German. And I'm thinking of getting a double major in engineering."
Focus, grasshopper. Focus.
