Spring 2012 class schedule



So this is my class schedule for 2012, but it requires a bit of explanation. First thing you should notice is that this schedule contains 21 credit hours, which is a death sentence. I'm not taking 21 credit hours. The next thing you should notice is that I'm waitlisted for a class, HPER-C 366,Community health. So I'm actually in 18 credit hours, and waitlisted for 3. I'm going to drop down to 15 for spring semester though. I'm not sure which classes will be the final cut though.

HPER-H 150 is children's health up to age 5.
HPER-F 317 class is a topical seminar over divorce and it's effect on children(I think.)
HPER-H 235 is obesity and health.
HPER-H 305 is womens health.
HPER-H 306 is mens health.
HPER-H 317 is a topical seminar over gender, communication, sexuality and health.

Harry Potter Marriage Proposal.


This is a really awesome idea. I think it's adorable- as long as it isn't my copy of Half-Blood Prince. If it's my personal copy of the Half-Blood Prince, I'm really shitty. My paperback copies of Harry Potter are littered with notes.

It's a love hate sort of game.

I find myself wishing I could blog things I can't or shouldn't. Other bloggers know what I mean, things that aren't ok for public consumption, or aren't the publics' business, or involved parties wouldn't like it if I published posts about it, or maybe it's something I just can't bring myself to tell the whole wide world about. It's usually a combination of the three though. Either way- these are things that I really wish I could blog about.

I think about these things and wonder how my little blog would be different if I didn't care and posted it anyway. I wonder if it'd make me a better blogger- or perhaps if it wouldn't help at all.

Rascism and Homophobia


I was reading this article today and feel free and read it for yourself- but I'll summarize it real fast for those of you who don't want to. This local church does a production every year of what they call "a glimpse into hell." It featured scenes about homosexuality, abortion, racism, and alcohol. I think it's really interesting that they did scenes about homosexuality and racism in the same production.

“We told him he was born gay,” the demon said. “Who in their right mind would actually believe that? Now he’s gone forever, into eternal fire, with all the other perverted, twisted, sin-infested souls. We’ve got your alternative lifestyle — in hell.”

“These simpletons actually believe that they are the supreme race,” the demon said. “All these fools have done is bought into one of my biggest lies: racial hatred and
prejudice."

Racism is as bad as homophobia. If you take a stand against one, you should take a stand against the other. Racism is denying a subset of society privileges or rights based on race and what homophobes do is deny a subset of society privileges based who they sleep with. Is there a difference?

There are people that say there is a difference is that homosexuality is a choice and because it's a choice they don't deserve the same rights- but they are wrong. Believing and practicing whatever religion you choose to practice is also a choice and yet you can't be fired from your job based on who or what you pray to. In the majority of states GLBT people can be fired just because of who they find attractive. So even if homosexuality is a choice- it doesn't matter. It should be protected and it's a damn shame it isn't.
