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:

"LEFT BRAIN:
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."

"RIGHT BRAIN:
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?

LEFT BRAIN:
this is my brain on college courses.
this is the smart half.

RIGHT BRAIN:
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 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...).
Awesome.
:]
