It's occurred to me that perhaps I didn't blog about a fascinating research project for one of my classes a few semesters ago. This class was a bit strange and I can't even explain the concept of the class to this day, but the professor was great so that's a plus.

My group decided to explore the tourism of hot springs. And the closest hot spring just so happens to also be clothing optional.

But it gets better. It was hot that day, I hadn't eaten all day long and I accidentally ingested some of the magnesium rich water. During the drive home I puked all over my classmate's car. (Because I had bought a bottle of water on my way out since I was feeling so ill. I thought I was dehydrated. Instead I spent the entire 60+ minute drive home trying to keep the water down until I couldn't no more.) Oh how embarrassing. I felt like crap in so many ways.

But in the end... I got to experience a research project in which I viewed nekkid people. Last day of class the professor asked if these projects were fun or not and I exclaimed "Yes! I got to see nekkid people!"

And now for something completely different

As I was studying for my finals this week I remembered an incident, or rather 2 incidents, during my first year in college. Even I have a hard time believing this happened and I was there!

I was in math class taking a test. It was deathly quiet which made the next event seem that much more loud: a girl farted. Really. There was this woman in the first row who just kept passing gas. The first few times she said "Excuse me" but then she just kept going on and on with it.

Ok. So it was just an awful isolated event... or maybe not. It happened again during the next test too.

The thing was, each and every time it happened it would break your concentration. I had a hard time trying not to laugh as well. I was so shocked the first time I heard this happen. I went from shock, to holding in laughter, to being annoyed, to having to refocus each and every time it happened to anxiously and fearfully anticipating the next attack.

Anyhoozlebees. It's funny, and it's even funnier now looking back upon it, but it was annoying too.

I'm done with finals too, yippee! I hope to recover some of my brain which was pretty fried this week.
