    Cynthia is usually not IMPULSIVE in selecting her college courses. However, she took one COMPULSORY class in GENETICS during last semester. She felt that REGENERATION was REPULSIVE. Once people EXPIRE, it was hard to imagine a heart would PULSATE and RESPIRATION could occur again. In another class, a professor lectured on GENOCIDE and theories of CONSPIRACY. Next semester, she plans to use her INGENUITY in choices that reflect her own personal SPIRITUALITY.
