I am still here, sort of

Okay, school is kicking my ass this semester!

I have been learning so much though. hehe. For instance:


This is the Frontal Lobe - Front part of the brain; involved in planning, organizing, problem solving, selective attention, personality and a variety of "higher cognitive functions" including behavior and emotions and evidence is strong that the brain does not cease to mature until the early 20's in those relevant parts that govern impulsitivity, judgment, planning for the future, foresight of consequences, and other characteristics that make people morally capable.
So I had a talk with my daughter on the dangers of drinking and doing drugs until her frontal lobe is fully developed. hehehe. And thinking to myself no wonder I am on the edge of 40yrs old and just now going to school. I needed someone to have this talk with me, I mean at least I would have known I was altering my future because I doubt it would have changed anything I did. It is a good resource to blame tho.
Lesson for the day. Okay going to try to play catch up.

I think my Frontal Lobe and the one behind it is still developing. It's either that or they don't exist.

Stay focused on that school stuff...use your Front Lobe, but blog just a tiny bit to keep us informed.
Oh, yeah, and just say no to drugs! (gotta remind all college students of that)

I do say no these days, but not always the case, like when my frontal lobe was developing. Damitalltohell!! That's probably why I have to take the extra time to learn this stuff.

The new car is a pathfinder.
I DO know where the brake peddle is....I just don't want to wear them out!
And I'm coming to town at X-mas ......so prepare yourself to do some front lobe cell killing!!!!!

I'm still waiting for my entire cerebral cortex to develop. I think I breathed in too many Aqua Net fumes in the '80's. Worse than drugs.....

Wow... talking to Peepers about not drinking and doing drugs? What is she, like 5 or something? Don't you think that's a little soon? ha..ha..ha.. just kidding! :)

Whew...going back to school at your age? I think that's great. Did they give you a senior citizen discount? :P

This explains so much in my life, lol. In addition to underage drinking, my brother hit me in the forehead with a brick and I had eight stitches in my forehead where the hairline begins. Every time I do my hair, I think of him, and not in a good way.

I really admire you for going back to school. I never finished college, but then, I never wanted to, lol. Must be that frontal lobe thing.

I truly have no idea what you are talking about. None. I am, however, glad you're still blogging.

I need somthing new to look at. :(

Grandma J said...

School must be going great because you haven't had time to blog. Which might be a good thing....for you.

Wow, school MUST be kicking your ass. LOOK how long it's been.

Grandma J said...

OK, put that book down...just for ten minutes and update this blog. You will still get an A, and I'll even send a note to your teacher.
Now I feel better.
