Intro to Psych has been both interesting and somewhat boring for me so far. I think that most students came into this class expecting to jump right into the fascinating facts about the human mind and human behavior, like I did, but it turned out to be something else. Studying the very basic yet detailed information about the human brain and all the little strings attached to everyday brain processes is not very appealing to me, so I find it challenging to be motivated to do anything in this class right now. I'm expecting for it to turn around soon and start going on an uphill climb as far as the level of how interesting the things we learn will be in class. Psych lecture is also quite a challenge for me to stay focused in, since there are over 700 other kids in this class. It's really easy to zone out and start focusing on other things that have nothing to do with Psych. But nonetheless, I'm still reading and keeping up with quizzes, taking my own notes as I read and also taking notes in the lectures. Psych discussions are a lot better though, I can ask questions and there's more of a one-on-one dynamic in psych discussion, which I enjoy. I'm just hoping that the chapters will get more interesting as we go along.
