Totally looking forward to Halloween, it's my favorite day of the year! And October has all the good stuff, i.e. pumpkin spice flavored EVERYTHING (coffee, cappuchino, donuts, beer, waffles, etc).

ChaCha - I hate those types of discussions. It seems like people misinterpret and jump to conclusions a lot. I hate know-it-alls too. Here is something interesting for you though. In anthropology, we learned that a small percentage of people are immune. It has to do with having two copies of a particular allele. It occurs in people who's ancestors survived the plague. Anyway, the gene makes it so the immune system cannot be "tricked" by the virus. The virus tricks the immune system in much the same way the plague does.

During that same year, competing scientific groups made a series of discoveries that could open a new chapter in treating -- and preventing -- infection by the lethal organism. For the first time, the treatments would be aimed not at the virus itself, but at a portal through which HIV enters white blood cells and attacks the immune system.

Scientists in 1996 identified the portal: It was a large protein called Chemokine Receptor 5, or CCR-5, which is a normal part of the cell produced by a gene having the same name.

When this gene is mutates, it produces the protein incorrectly. In fact, when people inherit two copies of the mutant CCR-5 gene, the cell fails to make the portal protein at all. It simply does not exist, and the cell is like a house with no front door.

I was SO excited last night. I got to hold an owl last night and she really seemed to like me. I was a bit annoyed though. This was an outreach thing and there were families there. The kids kept asking if they could pet "my bird". We're not supposed to let people pet her so I said no, she might get scared with little hands coming at her. Problem solved. The issue was the parents. Several of them just walked up and tried to touch her! Didn't asked or anything.

Tanlover and Hazel - I bet you're right

I caught up on some of the curriculum today. Have my first exam in November already, and I do not feel ready. I'm studying psychology and so far it has all been about biological development, neuro science and more psysiopsychology than anything else = not very exiting. I'm not good with scientific subjects. However when this exam is finished, we are starting up on mental illnesses, psychological traumas etc. That will be very exciting!

Svandis I had a really hard time with Intro to Psych when I took it because it was all new concepts and a bunch of stuff to memorize. I ended up drawing tons of crazy pictures to help me remember the synapses, re-uptake processes, etc. It's so bad though because I can't remember any of it now! xD

Zoologist That map class sounds awesome! Where do you go UCF? They have this basket weaving class at USF and we always joke that they're going to turn the class into an underwater basket weaving class to make it more challenging. =p USF has some crazy odd classes. Hahahaha.

So Skipper has decided she wants to be a little terror lately. This morning I had Skippy out and I keep a sliding door to another room closed so she can't go in there and mess things up in there because it's not bunny proofed. The door must have been open a smidge and she decided she wanted to try to squeeze her way out because I was cleaning her cage and had the vacuum going (to suck up the hay she threw around). All I could hear was this odd rattling noise. I thought it was something that that the vacuum had sucked up. But I turned around for a second just in case to make sure it wasn't Skipper. Sure enough she was trying to squeeze her head through the crack and scratched at the opening. She didn't know I was watching and kept at her antics. The minute I shut off the vacuum to stop her, she turns around and gives me this look like, "But Ma I wasn't doing anything wrong". Of course she was caught so I called her and she came running up to kiss up to me. xD It made me laugh because for a while I thought she didn't know her name. NOPE she just ignores me! Hahaha!

Svandis - are you majoring in psychology in school/do you want to work in psychology in the future? I remember taking all those psychology courses..the neuroscience can be pretty confusing but it helps a lot when you get to the "interesting stuff" .

Mimz - wow, best wishes for everything going on! I hope all turns out for the best.

Haha I'm 23 right now..does that count as mid-20's? Weird! I don't feel like it...

What is everybody dressing up as for Halloween? Time to start thinking about those costumes! I'm probably going to re-use a costume from college and go as Yoshi, since nobody at my current school saw it haha. It's just a Yoshi plush hat with kelly green shorts, leggings, and t-shirt on which I sewed a white belly and red shell/saddle on the back.

Skippers Mama - Yeah, I try to draw up some of the information to memorize better, and so far it has worked, but only so much haha.
We'll see how everything goes. I need to stop spending so much time here on BB but I can't help it haha!
And haha Skipper is just adoreable!

Peppypoo - I'm taking a one year class in psychology, which counts as the first year of a bachellor if I want to continue studying psychology I haven't really decided yet if it is what i really want to work with, but I've always found psychology very very interesting. If I get through this year with okay grades and I still feel interested, I'm going to try and make it into a carreer.

Wow, that is so interesting I heard earlier this year about a man that no longer have HIV due to bone marrow transplants. Science is amazing, I love it so much

 

Yes, those know it all people.. we have discussion boards in other classes and we have a bunch of light hearted people and their replies make it fun. That 'know it all' always posts 'I agree' or 'I disagree.' Sometimes, we just WANT TO KEEP IT fun, HOWEVER it is always a debby downer to read his replies

Yay it's fall! Everything is orange and beautiful right now. The weather is even holding out! Unfortunately this won't last long as my local forecast is calling for snow starting on Thursday... Winter weather is absolutely horrible where I live so I'm hoping the fall weather lasts as long as possible (its not uncommon to drop below -40C)!

ChaCha - I HATE people like that. For the last two years I've had a classmate who not only corrects other students, but tries to correct the profs at my university (unfortunately he's usually wrong, or its just minor things like when a prof is simplifying a complicated concept and he's all "actually no, you're missing steps"). Not only is this rude, it's incredibly disrespectful. Every time he put his hand up the entire class would audibly groan but he never seemed to hear it.

Svandis - it's funny that you say that the neuroscience stuff is dull. I loved that stuff compared to the other subjects within psychology, but I was definitely the minority, haha. At my university that particular stream is called Biopsychology (biological psychology) and it was my major for my first degree (when i say that i feel really old so I'm going to add that I'm only 24) Overall psychology is a fascinating field. I especially love the psychology that attempts to explain or manipulate human behaviour (I'm taking a behaviour modification course as an elective this term and love it!). Plus it's applicable to SO many other things. I'm in the final year of my human nutritional sciences degree and my psychology background has definitely helped.

i turn 29 at the end of the month and can't believe i'll be THIRTY next year! i don't feel nearly that old!

i have a ba in psych. i really didn't know what i wanted to do with myself so i majored in psych because i was interested. i knew a lot already from personal stuff, too. i loved the classes, but still don't know what i want to do! i've found a lot of stuff requires a masters degree, which means more school...ahh.

First of all, no one under the age of 68 is allowed to use the word 'Senior' except in saying that they are in their final year in high school or the year after Junior in college.

Second, twenties, You feel old? - bwhahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!! Mid-twenties starts at 25. Age anxiety starts at 29. Realization that you are smarter, more fun and definitely more relaxed yet energetic begins at 31. In your 20s you are sure you know everything, but in your 30s you realize you were wrong about that, and it is a great relief.

After 50 is when you realize that you see yourself as yourself, but the rest of the world is starting to use inappropriate words for you like 'senior'. I am there. I have no grey hair yet. (OK, 3 in my cowlick that I pull out once every 3 months.) I am short tempered and less patient, mostly with people who think I am too old for anything, but especially good jobs. I DO remember the 80s, and we Star Trek watchers called our future selves 'grups'. I admit I am now a Grup.

Enjoy your 20s. They are mostly confusing. 30s and 40s are THE BEST. Remember the expression, "If I knew I was going to live this long, I'd have taken better care of myself."
Happy Birthday, Everybody, and many, many more.

Seconded RabbitPam... But I am grey (especially as I have not been able to find my favourite Ash Blonde Camoflage lately) I remember Star Trek when it wasn't repeats and William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy were still considered hot. MacGyvers mullet was still sexy and The Brady Bunch was forward and progressive. Also Sanitary pads before they were compact and adhesive (girls you have no idea how primitive the 60's were we are talking 3 foot long contrivances that required belts, plastic panties and were the size of an antique Long Board, don't even get me started on the alternative) Man walked on the moon, Rock Hudson had not yet come out of the closet, Gilligans Island was still innovative and the national and state awards still separated by gender as well as age and you could not have elective surgery without your husbands or fathers consent. Bobby Sherman and David Cassidy were heart throbs and "Me and You and a Dog Named Boo" was number one on the charts, Cat Stevens was still called Cat Stevens and The Carpenters had "Only Just begun". For beauty treatments you tried washing your hair with beer, mayonnaise or lemon juice, heated rollers were juice cans, ironing your hair was the best way to straighten it, wedgies (shoes) were a new idea and Disco was just being born. A guy in skin tight flairs was considered as a fashion legend and mobile phones were the size of a large over night bag and cost the national debt. Bra's were burnt, Helen Reddy voiced an anthem, Germaine Greer penned the Female Eunuch and Twiggy caused a riot by wearing a mini to the races. There is so much more but basically I am saying the 60's - 90's was a pretty amazing journey. I wish you could have been there but you have your own horizons, enjoy and treasure them.

Sounds good Peppypoo!

I'm so old I don't dress up for Halloween anymore!  We just sit at home, eat the candies we were supposed to hand out and complain about the noise outside...

My Dad: Enjoy your 20's.

My parents had my older brother when they were 22-23, and had me when they were 30-31. I intend to not have a kid (or if it even happens) until I'm in my 30's. My boyfriend (future husband, haha) is fine with that, his mom had him when she was 35. Chacha is my baby child

I went to the Resident Evil 6 release and the assistant manager of my department gave me a Red Bull. I don't drink energy drinks usually, but I might need it today. I am dead tired
