Biology Joyride

Biology has been a great ride for me!

I am trying not to exaggerate, but this class has been one of the highlights of my semester. With Prof. Victoria Olson and a group of great fellow students, I am enjoying the content of this class. To be honest, there is nothing thrilling that happen in-class. Although the subject matter that I get to grasp and learn keeps me fueled.

Learning about the intricate processes and systems within our bodies is not only interesting but enlightening to an extent. The fact about how complex each of these organs are, and how they all work together to keep this ‘machine’ running is absolutely mind-blowing. However, growing up, I bet all of us abuse our bodies and their systems to some degree or the other. It maybe due to over exerting, not maintaining a balanced diet, consuming alcohol, smoking tobacco, eating fatty and/or fried foods, and may other ways.

Since I am taking this class, I am able to see exactly what happens and how each of these aforementioned extremities can damage our body temporary as well as permanently. The affects of these conditions if not contained could range from minimal aches and pains to organ failures and worse.

I vaguely remember learning quite few of the topics from my school years. Maybe 8th grade or so. However, my comprehension and ability to wrap my head around these concepts has not only increased but also strengthened throughout life. This Human Biology class helps me open my eyes up to fragility of our ‘being’ that we feel entitled to. I thoroughly enjoy the content of this class!

I hope all of us take this course to reestablish some cores of life.
