Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid
Some unknowing ASU freshman is going to be in for a big surprise when they go to their Geology 103 lab (Also known as Rocks for Jocks). Not only are they going to be subject to the fascinating world of rocks, they will have the joy of learning it all from "Josha Bear" as his family affecinately calls him. He is now the teacher's assistant for two basic geology classes. Nothing to worry about, you think, he is sure to have a real proffessor next to him to make sure nothing goes wrong. No, he is the only teacher for the lab. The professor won't even be there. I cringe at the thought of all the jokes they are going to groan at. (Geologists are the only true rockstars! I am a gneiss guy! The Grand Canyon is Gorge-ous! He won't give you any schist! Take a look at that cleavage!). Actually, he is really excited and I am sure he will do a great job.
