Don't make me kick butt!

I don't wanna take two classes of Taekwondo-I don't wanna! Unfortunantely, I have no choice. In order to meet the minimum amount of classes to be full-time, I have to be enrolled in 13 units. So far includes PMB 135/135L, PMB 150/150L & IB 117/117L, if you guys are keeping track-that's 12 units. I can't take another science class, I just can't! I need to take brain-dead-dummy-sleep-getting-a-passing-grade-class-so-I-don't-die-of-science class.

So I'm trying to find something to fill in that last unit-but thanks to my Telebears Phase II just starting today-all the good classes were full!! So I'm left with two martial arts classes back to back. Hey, it was this or jazz dance. I can't rely right now on DeCal courses because it's too competitive.

I'm seeing there is a Directed Group Study for one unit, but how does that work? Is it just for freshman and sophmores, do I have to be enrolled in a certain class?

Why must I waste my time and effort on filler classes!??!

Josephine: You can always initiate your own 2 unit course with a direct group study course or supervised independent study. This is where you choose the criteria of study, get a faculty sponsor and study what you want for those two units of credit. It doesn't have to be PE or science, so long as the idea makes sense and you get a faculty sponsor.

Hi Josephine, just a couple of comments on your classes: PMB 117L will feel like lots of memorization but also very artsy, PMB 135/L is actually not very hard, I haven't taken PMB 150/L, which is why I'll be seeing you in class. But what else are you interested in? DeCals are also not very competitive, so everything is really dependent on what your other interests are. And the PB classes...just crash! If you have time, just "sit into" the class the first day and see if you can get in, even if the waitlist is full. Looking forward to meeting you sometime this semester!
