“The purpose of learning is growth, and our minds, unlike our bodies, can continue growing as long as we live.” ~Mortimer Adler
Well at least that's what I'm aiming for.
One of the perks I have with working at Wash U is that after a year of service, I can take any courses at no cost. I've always wanted to take Anatomy and Physiology but it was never a requirement in my majors so no such luck. Well my year here was July 22nd, and July 23rd I was in the system registered as a student for the fall semester. Now that it's here.....literally; I am leaving to go to my first lab in 5 minutes....I'm really nervous. All of my insecurities and fears of failure rear their ugly heads. It's so silly, I know I'm going to enjoy it, I know I will learn it easily because of my interest, and I know if I dont get something, I have 3 MD's I work with daily that can help me jump the hurdle.
I get to dissect a rat tonight. I hope the professor doesn't tell me we aren't allowed to name them because I already picked the name Clementine. :-) Ok I just shoved the fear and nerves out the window. Tonight's gonna be fun. I'll let you know how it went in tomorrows post.
