The strangest class experience -
And yes, UWM has a 2 credit Sports & Rec meditation class. It sure beats the pants off the 5 credit chemistry class I'm taking.
We meditate. We walk in circles. We discuss things nice and calmly. We even got a nap a couple weeks ago.
And the teacher was talking about today that sometimes our minds won't just settle down, and it just races.
And he went on to explain, legitimately, that the term for this is 'monkey mind.' And he said also that experiencing that is kind of
like having a song stuck in your head that you can't get out, like an ear mole. And everytime I got the song out of my head, he'd
casually bring up the ear mole thing again....
I was already having enough troubles today as I had my first chemistry test (which I did ace, it just takes a lot of extra studying
when the teacher isn't teaching) and numbers and formulas were just racing about in the noggin. That was quickly replaced
by Monkey Paw. Thanks, prof!
