When hearing about psychology at The U, the first thing said is how much work and reading it is. Although excessive reading can take its toll, I think interesting reading is a wonderful thing. And I also believe that psychology can provide me with some extremely interesting reading and discussion topics. The human brain is so complex and theories about its functioning is ever changing. Psychology is a contemporary study, while it also maintains ideas that arose centuries ago. Many ideas that psychologists have today could be dropped in the future due to them being disproven, while others will continue to thrive. I hope that by this course's end i have a better idea of not only how brains work in general, but of how my brain has grown into what and who I am today. When we are being lectured in class, we aren't learning about some people that did something at some time. When we study psychology, we are studying ourselves, and that is so rad.
