Next week I get to look forward to giving a presentation presentation of the Endocrine System for Medical Terminology. I like languages, and Med Term is no exception. I really like working on my weekly workbook assignment. I have a lot of fun with my flash cards. I’ve done well on my quizzes. But every Monday there has been a student led presentation on the week’s topic and honestly I HATE this aspect of the class. I am so bad, I don’t relish listening to my fellow students butcher the words. They just regurgitate painfully boring slides of root root and prefixes/suffixes. How i wish there was an online version of this class, even if it was more challenging. Thankfully the final is next week and we can move on to Law/Ethics. I can only hope that it won’t be student led format.
Let’s take a break from bitching, I would like to share some shots I took yesterday. Zena decided to get involved. The rest were taken at Desert Forge.
Of course, with all this bitching, I will go and make an ass of myself on *My Part* of this group led presentation. I like the people that I’m working with. I just dislike group projects so fucking much. I‘m not saying I’m an expert. On the contrary. I guess the point I’m trying to make is that I want the teacher to be doing the teaching. That is my idea of a good educational experience I have been having fun preparing my powerpoint slide show, looking for a cool youtube introduction video has been fun. The more I contemplate the endocrine system the more I want to understand how asana practice affects it.
The endocirine system is is a pretty cool system that I want to grok. I’m not exactly sure if I want to be a PTA as this point. I continue to aspire to be the best yoga instructor I can be, that much I know. It is my dharma, the little grasshopper that I am. Yet with my scientific training, plus years as a yoga practitioner/teacher plus training at PMI, I really hope that I will morph into a knowledgeable bodywork educator. I want to excel at it!
Ok, time to take the Basenjis on a walk – it i a gorgeous day. Then I need to focus on this stupid presentation and do my homework assignment for physics. Yipee.
