What's Going On: August 2005 Archives

I just realized that this is the first college I have attended where I've stayed long enough to witness a new freshman class come in. It's funny how I forgot that I knew so little about the campus and how it works when I first came here. Strange how I almost feel like they're invading my space just by their presence. I do not want to have to get used to new faces, but I suppose that is the nature of things.

Something about what my psychology teacher said today in class bothered me. I could have sworn my psychology teacher said that society determines what mental illness is. Her example went something like "If we decided that only people with hats were sane, and only one person wore a hat in a class of 10, then we could say that 9 out of 10 people were mentally ill."

This really bothers me, as it seems to be saying that there are no absolutes when it comes to the human mind and society in general. It sounds like she's saying that we as humans decide what is right and wrong. Consider me bugged. If you're out there, what say you? Should I be worried about this class?

First Day of School


It's the hour between my first class and the next. I'm going to try to move my first class down an hour so I'm not taking a class at 8 AM and can use it for morning exercise. If I can't do that, I still have the afternoon available. From what I can tell, I have a lot of really good professors this year, so it's going to be a good semester. Please pray for a successful year in school.
