Nemesis #1: Zoology 2320. A.k.a. Anatomy...
Yes, it's that time to retake this class so that I may earn a better grade! Despite my own best efforts I lost sleep, suffered anxiety attacks, and yes, even cried in lab the last time I took this course. I admit it; That all sounds very childish.
However, this is a class which many people take by itself and sometimes quit their jobs for. (I've heard of this on more than one occasion.) It's the best anatomy program in the state of Utah. The time demands are enormous and the sheer volume of information you are required to analyze and explain (NOT just regurgitate!) is enough to make you pee your pants a little.
Do I enjoy the subject, however? Yes. In retrospect, I did enjoy and appreciate the miracle of the human body and all of its wonders. I simply need to learn this time around how to take this class "one day at a time" just like anything else in life. Last time I took it, I was incredibly stressed due to working 20 hour weeks and having a full credit load along with Trent, who was in the same boat. It felt like we were precariously balancing on a life preserver while being tossed in an angry storm over shark infested waters.
