Now back to my graduate coursework I'm supposed to be doing -- reading up on Educational Psychology (right now concentrating on Cognitive Theories of Development). Actually I do enjoy this part a lot better than the last module on the History of the U.S. Education System. *YAWN* But I've always done well in Psychology/Behavioral Science type classes. If I hadn't majored in Math for my undergraduate degree, Psychology would definitely been the next choice. :)
