OK I have decided I am a danger to myself and everyone around me. Went to bed at midnight last night and kept waking up about every hour or so. Some of it was thanks to Betty, she thought she needed to take up about 3/4 of the bed. Grrrr. Overslept for classes, got up, took shower with no water pressure whatso ever and of course ran out of hot water. Got dressed, scheduled a ride to class since it's about zero with the wind. Got to class, twisted my ankle on ice, couldn't type in class, fingers just wouldn't work. Went to lunch where they didn't have my dish of choice, overfilled soda and then proceeded to spill soda on me and Betty. Not good, not good at all.
We talked about babies in psych and how they learn. It was interesting to read how psychologists test babies to see what they learn from their basic senses. But I would love to research blind babies and see if they can't see, how they adapt. For example, my dad told me that when I was a baby I used to touch people's faces a lot. I wonder why I did that? Was it to figure out what people looked like? Or was I able to identify them by their faces? Psychologists have done studies with babies and have shown them pictures of faces, but with the facial features mixed up, like their mouth was where the eyes were supposed to be, etc. Apparently the babies reacted negatively, basically freaked out. Wonder if blind babies would react the same way? Hmmmm.
