School Time

Heading back to school in September. Need to finish getting my BA in Studio Arts. Two classes left and one will be based on drawing cadavers. I suppose Leonardo Da Vinci would be proud since he spent his time doing such things. I took an anatomy class once. I didn't finish but spent the last class that I was there gagging in the bathroom - after they brought in some 20 bagged cadaver cats for dissecting. Anyway, to study for the first exam I found it so odd that we could check out a box of human bones from the school library. How would you feel about donating your body to science only to be put into a cardboard box and placed on a shelf in the library? I'm almost 95% sure they were real, but have no intention of ever going back to find out. Now, I know why library's feel creepy sometimes.
Leondardo's sketches
Jewelery design is the other class I will be taking. If I can just learn how to melt, pour, combine metals and maybe add glass in the mix I will be happy. If I have to pick up beads from Michaels, and spend my time stringing them, then I will be convinced that my student debt was all in vain.
