So today i brought 2 of my docile rosies to school, and did lessons on arachnophobia for all the psychology classes. I went really really really well. It went better then i thought, the people were really interested, some peopl freaked and had to leave the room, only 2 though, out of the 60 some people i gave the lesson too. They asked alot of questions, about everything, it was really great, then i asked if anyone was even slightly interested in holding one of the rosies, to my suprise, over 30 people held my rosies today, I made them sit on a blanket i set out on the floor and keep their hand against the blanket on the floor, to prevent any accidents, i took alot of pre-causions and told them alot about tarantulas and it just went really well, i'm doing it again next year when the pyschology classes get to the Phobia chaper again, so it should be fun! I also noticed the precent of girls willing to hold the tarantula was probably about 60% and 40% were males, that was a surprise, but the girls who were really scared, actually cryed and had to leave... so it was weird. all in all it was a great day.
