wow, today i went to Chester Zoo on a psychology trip. We were meant to look at the behaviour of animals and then use evolution etc. to explain human behaviour- it fits in with our comparative psychology module.

what actually happened was we wandered around the zoo all day, had an hour's lecture (not too boring) and took lots of cute pictures of the animals. it was such a laugh- i feel about 6 again! didn't actually learn anything though... but it was a lovely break from lessons.

anyone else been on any educationally dubious trips recently?

we didn't actually get told to look at anything in particular me doesn't think (but the primate thing does ring a bell slightly). it was honestly such a random day, we just had a laugh.

only problem was, did anyone notice the temperature today? i feel i have *healthy glow* on my cheeks...

lucky, the only trip offered so far is a £2k trip to Belize. For some reason I can't seem to get £2k out of my £20 in the bank :/ anyone know of a 2000% monthly interest account?

I recently went on a history trip to the Imperial War Museum, where I spent most of my time playing hide and seek. Seriously.

errrm this thread is nearly a year old, i don't go to college anymore, i'm at uni now. if you have any questions about psychology try the academic or university subforums (depending on which is more relevant)
