5: Classes I would love to take
Are you tired of me talking about school yet?
01| A grammar class. I’ve been dying to since I’ve been in high school, but it’s never been offered! The first and last formal training I’ve had in grammar was in third grade and I feel like Mrs. Brown didn’t go very deep. Unless you count “Daily Oral Language,” which I don’t. (It’s when you check 2 sentences for grammar every day). You can tell, can’t you?
02| Personal finance. I took an economics class in high school and thought it was so fun and interesting. My law and government economics class is a start, but we’re focusing on policy.
03| Linguistics. One of my favorite classes I ever took. I took it my freshman year at Truman State where they actually have a linguistics major. Here at UW there are only 2 linguistics classes and I’ve never been able to take them. Linguistic is a fascinating, you learn so much about your language, everyone else’s language, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they made it a requirement if you’re majoring in a foreign language.
04| Drawing II\Life Drawing. After having a conniption about having to take Drawing I (because I’ve never really drawn before), I ended up really liking it. Especially doing portraits. This is a semi-obtainable goal, but I don’t anticipate having room in my schedule next semester since they’ve added a new graphics class. I also really just want to take life drawing (drawing people), but I think drawing II is a prereq.
05| Eastern literature. UW requires that you take “diversity” course. But by diversity they mean African America, Chicano, Native American, and women. I learn about the western world 24/7, come on! The religious studies department just got an eastern religious teacher, there’s a start (I was the Philosophy & Religious studies office aid last year) .
What class would you love to take if you could?
p.s. Never stop learning
