Live Blogging IB 117 Lec - 1st Day
Hello readers, I'm going to try something never done on this blog before. Something I've never done either. I am sitting in class right now and with my trusty netbook, I am blogging live what the first day of IB 117 - Medical Ethnobotany is like. Check back every few minutes to see updates!
4:16 - 400+ kids have packed into the Chan Sun Auditorium, Prof Carlson has told has where to buy the reader and is currently explaining his syllabus.
4:18 - Kids still walking in late-CRAZY!
4:19 - Ooh, hallucinogens! Man, wish I knew how to hook up a twitter account to this so I wouldn't have to wait for the blog to reload.
4:21 - My midterm is worth 45% of my grade?!!?!! Final is 55%??
4:24 - Final exam is not cumulative! Hooray!
4:26 - Have spotted one of my friends from jr. college! Should I wave my arms around like crazy to get her attention? Am thinking against it.
4:27 - Thought against it.
4:28 - Yay, she spotted me! Ooh, the lecture begins.
4:29 - Botanizing - awesomest verb.
4:36 - Apparently anthropologists love ethnobotany.
4:45 - CA is a global diversity hotspot. Ha, my bio teacher in jr college already told me that!
4:57 - Prof is showing slideshow of different healers he's met around the world.
5:06 - BREAK!!
5:15 - Break over.
5:24 - Funny how 80% of the world considers western medicine the alternative health care option.
5:29 - Quickly checked email tab, have friday's lecture powerpoint for PMB 135. Talk about efficient.
5:35 - Cocaine derivatives are used numb the eye during surgery...cooool.
5:39 - Someone wants coca seeds.
5:54 - Wants a curare plant!!!
5:56 - Class is over!
**edit - I forgot to include that during the lecture-I had raised my hand and asked how long the potency of the curare plant poison lasted-I was too stoked from speaking I forgot to blog it!
