Various Types of Nervousness

In Genetics the professor asked of the class of 200+ a very, very simple question, and I found it funny that I was fully prepared to be nude for a life drawing class in a few minutes, but was intimidated to speak up with the answer. I guess that just goes to show that when you conquer one nervous fear there will always be plenty more. It kind of sucks though that courage from one facet of life doesn't naturally transfer to others.

It turns out that my services weren't required in Life Drawing (scheduling mix-up; their fault) so I sat in on the class. It was a female model and I was struck by how differently she was treated than I normally am. No one ever talks to me after class! No people practically line up to show me their drawings! In fact, if after class I walk around to check out the drawings people usually flip their pad pages. Jerks.
