Earlier this week, I received an email about a new class that was going to be offered during the fall 2006 semester titled, “Sex and Addiction.” Of course, I had to sign up, especially when I read that the course will include:
a mixture of discussion, lecture and experiential content for this course which will focus on:
- The effects of drugs on sexuality and relationships
- The effects of sexuality and relationships on addiction and relapse
- Sexual addiction: definition, causes, levels, relationships with drug use
- The core issues that are usually shared among people addicted to sex, drugs or relationships
- The addictive nature of some relationships
Good stuff, no?
Last week, I decided to reschedule one of my classes that I had dropped earlier this summer. Guess what? The class is full, and they don’t offer it in Spring. So now, I’m reviewing every class that is being held at 11am or 3:30 pm on a Tuesday and/or Thursday – as this is the only time that “fits” with my schedule. What is really crappy about this, is that up until recently I had the perfect schedule that would have enabled me to graduate in December. So now I’m looking at taking a History Class and looking for an English class. Let’s hope I can actually register for them.
Update: Well I finally figured it out. No minor, but classes that I might actually enjoy. Just waiting on feedback on one of the other classes that I am looking to drop (just to see if it will be available next semester).
It's my first day of classes full-time at UNT. Yay! Yay, for two reasons. First, they have Internet (who would have thought that a university would have access to these Internets). Second, classes have not been totally disgusting (I still have one to go in just under three hours). I think I'm going to enjoy this (check back in May to see if I'm still thinking this way), and hope that I'll do well in all of the classes that I have so far been too.
Oh, I just received an email to say that my I-20 (the thing that keeps me legal in this country) has been finalized and now waiting for pick up, so I'll wander down to that office to collect that shortly. I'm hoping that they have extended it long enough for me to do my masters program, but I'm guessing that it will be till August this year. We'll see.
I had a good lunch with Layton, and caught up on life in the str8 UNT man's world (I'm fast beginning to realize that it's not much different to the gay UNT's man world). He was kind enough to expose me to the world of the University Union and the cafe … bonus! I think I'll start to bring my lunch with me to school, so I need to remember to buy some brown paper bags on the way home (or maybe I'll just stop off at a friends to collect some of theirs [reference to alcohol and brown paper bags]).
Random thought: I'm sitting in Wooten Hall near the stairwell, and discovered a major hottie walking the stairs. While it may be -25F outside (at least with the wind), he was wearing just a t-shirt, and had oh-so-nice arms.
Random thought No. 2: And then there are som enot so cute things. I guess it's that ying and yang thing.
Well my final semester is over at Collin College and I have my grades – yay! Two “A's” (Intro to Sociology and Concepts of Wellness and Fitness) and one “D” (Statistics). I'm not overly proud of the D, but I earned it, and am grateful that it's not an F. As for my UNT Class – Sociology of Marriage and Family – my first UNT “A” – which means I'm back to being a 4.0 (GPA) student! Woo hoo!
Comparative Religion, Fall 2004
Christianity is always a subject for interpretation. How does Søren Kierkegaard interpret Christianity in “The Anguish of Being a Christian”? How does his interpretation compare to your own? Or, if you are not a Christian, does his interpretation of Christianity repel or attract you? Explain.
