This is your brain on college home work...

This Mercedes Benz ad is sort of a good depiction of how I feel right now.
It's my new desktop.

I found this image in a google search (for psychology class) looking for images of the right and left hemispheres of the brain. I saved it to mu computer, because I thought it was really artful, though it had nothing to do with what I was searching for.

You can click the above link to see it enlarged but the captions on either side say this:

I am a scientist. A mathematician
I love the familiar. I categorize. I am accurate. Linear
Analytical. Strategic. I am practical. 
Always in control. A master of words and language.
Realistic. I calculate equations and play with numbers.
I am order. I am logic.
I know exactly who I am."

I am the right brain.
I am creativity. A free spirit. I am passion.
Yearning. Sensuality. I am the sound of roaring laughter.
I am taste. The feeling of sand beneath bare feet.
I am movement. Vivid colors.
I am the urge to paint on an empty canvas.
I am boundless imagination. Art. Poetry. I sense. I feel.
I am everything I wanted to be."

My summation?

this is my brain on college courses.
this is the smart half.

this is who my brain is the rest of the time.
this is me.

Love the art and how it applies to you :)

I feel like my left brain has control of my right brain. I love to do creative things like write, draw, and photograph, but I have very organized rules to follow because everything has to be JUST so. It's not really a "free" creative.

It's not necessary for you to know that much information about me, I just thought you might like the analogy.

I want that picture on my wall. Seriously. :)

I love this image, such a brilliant ad design (even for a car company) :)

I'm just wondering HOW I wasn't following you before this!

I love this picture, all the right vs. left brain stuff I'm learning in psych just makes me even more convinced I'm primarily right brained.

Side note... I stalked you a little (unashamed) and I was homeschooled too! WOOOT! And come from a huge family with adopted kids (go figure...).
