Then I read chapter 2. OMG!!!! I have already been reading for about 4 hours over 3 days and I still have about 20 pages to go. The chapter was only 50 pages long. I have to read it with my laptop on so that I can stop to look up words that I am not familiar with. I do okay as long as there are no distractions (go luck with that one). There have been sections that I do understand (cell division, DNA replication), but there are other parts where I feel like my brain could spontaneously combust. We will be covering the entire book over the course of the semester. I am afraid to look ahead in the book for fear that I will just throw it down in horror and never pick it up again.
Well, I am off to numb my brain again. Wish me luck (and send me smart thoughts).
