The Question Club
So, today my psych class was part of an experiment about witness identification. A man entered our classroom (which is a large lecture hall) and went to the podium and took the sign in sheet and stood over it. He then proceeded to run off with my teachers purse. We then filled out forms asking what the man looked like, and if we could recognize him again. We were then shown a photo array and asked if the man was in the photo array and to pick a number if he was. We were then asked to tell them how confident we are.|
My friend Erika and I were talking about it and the woman behind us chimed in about how we'd find out Tuesday (our next class) and how she should get Erikas name and possibly use her to be interviewed on the news. So after she took Erikas name, I told her "Oh, I can give you mine, too" and she took it. They then called 6 people up, Erika and I were 2 of them. We were interviewed for abut an hour and told we'd be on the news sometime in November. (We go to John Jay, which is a criminal justice school, so this was both a learning experiance and good publicity for the school, according to the head of the psych department)
Who wouldn't pass up 15 minutes of fame? (not the question)
When has being pushy or aggresive helped you get your way?
What's the best thing that happened to you this week?
Being filmed for the news, getting Colber Report tickets, meeting the head of the psych dept. at my school and getting an in with her (she said that if the theatre class i want to take is full to call her and she'll get me in, and that she needs a new stage manager so she took my number and said she might call), getting a 79 on my psych test, getting a check plus and a p on my english midterm (both of those will bump my grade up one third in the end. so if I were to get a b, he'd give me an a-), and I made dinner rolls and roasted potatos today.
i'm in a good mood, that's why i'm posting a lot.
