Geology & College

If you were wondering where I found out about the giant quartz crystals, it was from my geology class. However, the information about this amazing discovery is a couple of months old, April 9 of 2007, which shows you just how much out of the loop I am. Now considering that my major is geology, I need to work on being better informed about this kind of thing.

A couple of weeks ago I started a class that I didn't think I would like that much. It is American History and Culture. It sounded like all the other boring history classes that I have taken in my life. I have been pleasantly surprised at the information that we as a class are covering, some I have never heard of or even thought about before. For instance, did you know that in the Native American culture before the Europeans came over was mostly a Matriarchal society? Meaning that the women were more in charge of things than the men. For example when men the women were married it was the man who would change his name, and their lineage was traced through the female side rather than the males side.

Kind of interesting.
