First order of business today was Marine Biology. I learned about vertical migration. Interesting thing, a lot of animals will actually switch between two zones, in order to enjoy the benefits of both. Some animals can manage it better than others however, because of the differences that occur the deeper you go.
Next up, Sociology. I learned about deviance. What I find kind of interesting is that social norms actually make life a lot easier. With social norms, you can expect certain things to happen, like going to the store and buying milk. People also respond to other’s actions through sanctions. There are negative sanctions, like gossip or criminal charges, and positive sanctions, like smiles or formal awards. People like it when others conform to norms.
Finally, English. I started working on my paper, and got the order of stuff down. Not much else to say, really.
