Psyching Out

Update: Seminar was great. Our professor was in the middle of explaining the etymological significance of the Greek word for "busybody" when I looked over at my friend across the table. He had his fists interlocked, and was examining how his knuckles fit together. And I thought that was the most fascinating part of class.

People when they're just being people are so incredible. Human beings are rather amazing. We retain this marvelous sense of curiosity and delight in the simplest discoveries. Adbhuta is the Sanskrit word for it. Adbhuta is why a young college-aged man still finds the way his knuckles fit together a mystery worth exploring. And in fact finds his knuckles more interesting than the Greek word for busybody.
I love it.
Psych major, here I come.

Just kidding.

Or am I?

ACK. Indecision.
