my major, interior design, is unfortunately in the family and consumer sciences department at baylor. why? i don't know. while i fully support being well rounded and taking a variety of classes, i do not support borderline/full on MRS classes. there are a number of university required courses for my degree that have nothing to do with i.d.
my top three least favorites:
theories of family development
family and individual financial management
last semester i had to take theories. TERRIBLE. one day we talked about mate selection.
ummm what? really? well i thought those days were gone. apparently not.
in financial management, we talked not only about mate selection and how that relates to financial decisions, but then watched scenes from the notebook. yes ladies and gentlemen, i am a senior in college and my professor is showing scenes from the notebook.then today, we filled out a worksheet estimating costs for having a child, from the moment you find you're pregnant. ok. i get it. most of us in the class will have a kid at one point or another. but come. on. are you kidding me (no pun intended)? i just spent an hour discussing the pros and cons of buying maternity clothes? timing your pregnancies to coincide with the seasons so as to not have to buy more maternity clothes? using cloth or disposable diapers? what vitamins are good?
I AM NOT PREGNANT NOR CLOSE TO BECOMING PREGNANT
PLEASE. STOP. WASTING. MY. TIME.
this would be completely appropriate and highly suggested as a class/workshop for couples thinking about having a baby. since i am neither a couple nor thinking about having a baby, this activity is not applicable or appropriate.
to summarize: want to really piss me off? use my tuition money to "teach" me about selecting a husband and budgeting for a kid.
p.s. the real kicker? this activity will be continued on friday (yay!) because apparently one day just isn't enough.
