Intro to Psychology

Today was an interesting day...
It all started out in the cafeteria with tater tots to a long discussion on text messaging. In the class we took it pretty easy and just went over the syllabus and met all the students. After, we broke up into the groups with our TAs. They told us about our upcoming project and we played some fun ice breakers. Each group had to come up with a unique name, so Brendan decided that our group should be the sexy pandas which I find hilarious (Meuy is also in my group). Courtney's group is called the crazy lions and Mercedes's is the orange oranges. Cynthia was with a different TA, but she probably did the same thing also except for the fact that her pen exploded and her hand was covered with blue ink.

Besides that we had a very interesting discussion on texting while driving, and how teenagers are somehow wired differently because of our influence on technology. Then they dropped the bomb, and announced that we have to read 86 pages and write a reflection email every night. Although the reflection is easy, it takes a really long time to read all the pages (tomorrow we have 100 pages to read). So that's why we are all blogging as a group because we're still attempting to do our homework. So now we're going to go back to our homework. Good night everyone!

Oh, how I love the way you all weaseled out of individual blogs! 86 pages of reading and an email on your first night so you don't have time to blog.

You may be able to get away with it this time but that's an excuse that may be tough to sell on day #2.

Not being a teenager or having it within me to even attempt a text message, I'd love to read about this discussion you all had regarding same. This might be a great opportunity for me to learn something new.

As you might have witnessed already, some of us have not embraced texting with quite the same fervor as some of you younger folk.
