I have a Biology lab practical on Thursday, followed by a Biology test next Tuesday (over a week away, not 2 days from now) and a Chemistry test this Wednesday. Wednesday is also Mike’s birthday. So I need to study for the Biology lab practical now so I don’t have to study on Wednesday night. I’ll still have to review, because we have to know a total of 35 phylum and class names for this unit. THIRTY-FIVE. I have issues with memorizing names like the phylums and classes. So far, out of the 35, I know phylum Mollusca and class Gastropoda. (Mollusks and Gastropods.) That isn’t going to cut it, so I am trying, hard. It just doesn’t “stick” for me though. Ugh. I’ll be SO GLAD when I am done with this Biology class!
I had to take a break, so I turned to the TiVo. I watched “Cheerleader Nation” and I’m totally hooked. It is about the cheerleaders of a high school in Lexington, Kentucky – which just so happens to be Mike’s hometown. His parents still live there. It is the public high school he would have attended if he had not gone to the Catholic high school. Every time they show the local scenery, including the trees changing colors in the fall, I point out that we should find him a job there and move. It is so beautiful there! Alas, the job is here, and he pointed out last summer when we visited that finding a job there in his field would not be easy.
But, man. What I would give to live somewhere with four seasons again.
Anyways, Cheerleader Nation is juicy but not too cheesy, with plenty of drama but not overly dramatic. Perfect for a study break. If you get a chance, check it out.
I guess I had better return to studying Kingdom Animalia now. Is it May yet?
