I went out and bought my textbooks on Friday, and just reading the titles filled me with a giddy, geeky, singing joy for several hours. Then the fear set in. This stuff is going to be *hard*. At a minimum, learning it is going to require hard work and discipline. Worst case, if it is truly badly taught, is failure to absorb the material entirely.
However, I'm going to spend a few hours taking notes on the physiology textbook this afternoon; I'm hoping this will reassure me. We'll see. I want my geekjoy back, damn it. (:
