So we are Psy-ing

So far Psychology has been ongoing, honestly I feel like I'm learning something from the class.
A bit in regards to the hefty book that covers the subject. And some insight from the instructor towards some of the subject at least most of the time. But most of the class feels a bit set aside, cruising along. Thing is I never let stuff get to me too much, but there's definitely a lot of kinetic energy. Gotta run

Dark of the Moon

Just made it home, after seeing Transformers 3. Honestly, I must admit its a bit better than "Revenge of the Fallen". Less examination from the humans, and more from our friends the Autobots & Decepticons. History collides with the future, and a huge roller-coaster ride takes it into overdrive.

On the plus side, Sam does redeem himself for recognition. Even though by dire means, and finding a new lady (I still miss Megan though). Plus a certain leading actor plays a perfect villain, (I won't spoil, but its definitely worth seeing). Oh and a must to check this out in theaters, don't wait for the dvd. Catch it on its matinee' run =D

Looking deeper

After beginning my psychology 101 course, I found out a few things about myself.
1) I do not connect with everyone
2) I find myself in a conversation with a select few classmates.
3) Most of them being of the opposite gender
4) I am starting to understand how Psy relates to the medical practice I'm heading towards.

Just a few keynotes I thought would be fun to share.

Re-examine a hedgehog

Just this past Monday, I started taking Psychology as a pre-requisite class towards my major being Massage Therapy. And it made me wonder, about the color grade concept. For the longest time I've wondered if Sonic the Hedgehog was intentionally made "blue". According to some studies, the color "blue" is stimulation, or free-spirit, always in motion.

Ever since I found myself interested in the medium of video games. Colors were always meant to express the development team's thoughts. What makes a hero? Or a villain? Since day one, the blue hedgehog was always non-stop, while a human (wearing a definitive red outfit, and boots) donning a menacing mustache and grin.

I may have found my subject for a final paper, although it may seem a bit off-beat going with a discussion towards a video game character's color concept. Maybe it might be worth trying, since I do have a lot to say about the topic.
