I guess I wouldn’t be Anna if I didn’t fall asleep in class every now and then…

Embarrassing?  Absolutely, but I was definitely not the only one who struggled through today’s first genetics lecture on complex diseases (they’re not as interesting as they sound).

I’m thankful for the small group sections spliced into every day.  Today was genetics, which I normally enjoy a great deal.  We’re assigned problem sheets, and then we go over them in a group of about twenty, everyone taking a turn to explain an answer choice and his/her reasoning to the group.  Nothing earth-shattering, but certainly a good break from lecture.  Today was all about the Chi-square test, log odds ratio, and gene mapping.  Lots of math.  I dig it.

Need to get over the caffeine addiction I only worsened on the honeymoon…
