7 Classes That Sound Easy But Are Actually Really Hard

Making your schedule in college takes almost as much effort as writing a ten-page paper or studying for an exam. You have to make sure you get the classes you need, and they all need to be at certain times so there isn’t any overlap (we don’t have Time-Turners in muggle world). One of the hardest parts about making a schedule is picking your “easy” classes. Those are the classes you pick when you need one more credit, but already have a packed schedule of the tough classes you need to fill your major’s requirements. You need these classes to be easy, because you’re either going to be slammed with work from other classes or because you don’t really care about the class, since it’s not a part of your major.

The worst thing about picking “easy” classes is when you think you’re getting a whole semester of take-home tests and completion assignments, but you don’t. The class turns out to be really hard, and suddenly you’re in jeopardy of failing your easy A class. Well fear not CC readers, because I’ve been through four years of college, so I know which classes to avoid when you’re looking to keep that GPA at a 4.0. If you want to coast through this semester, don’t take the following courses…

The Craziest College Classes Ever

One of the best things about college — besides getting out of your parents’ house, eating Easy Mac at midnight and dorm parties — is the classes. Sure, classes are the reason you have to roll out of bed before noon after staying up half the night finishing an essay, but they can be fun if you give ‘em a chance. Aside from the regular stuff like boring-history-with-an-ancient-professor and math-you’ll-never-use-again, colleges are now offering a few classes so crazy you might be excited to attend.

The New Extracurricular Activity: Learning How to Walk In Heels

Normal after-school activities include sports teams, dance lessons, and maybe a language class, but Chyna Whyne, a former backup singer, is switching up everyone’s preconceived notions and offering a six-week “Sexy Heels In The City” course for 16-year-old students at South Thames College in Wandsworth, Tooting, and Merton in South London. Every Monday night, classmates come together to strut around, learn the how-tos of stiletto walking, and practice pre-shoe-wearing exercises to stave off late-night foot pains. Chyna legitimizes the need for the class by saying, “At some point, girls from the age of 15 upwards will start wanting to wear high heels. The point, if it’s going to happen, the earlier younger ladies learn how to walk in heels, the better it’s going to be in the long run — with business and social lives. The statistics of women with shoe-related injuries and foot problems are unbelievable high.” At the end of the program, the girls put on a runway show on Liverpool Street’s Broad Gate Tower to show off their new pride and stiletto skill. Though some may see this as a frivolous class, if I could learn how to exercise my feet so they wouldn’t kill after hours of wearing heels, I’d sign up. [Telegraph] Keep reading »

Frisky Workouts: My New Found Respect For Strippers

I used to think strippers had it easy. They show up for work in the evening, shake their asses for a few hours, make their rent and grocery money in one shift, leave the club for the night, sleep through the morning, go shopping before work and then start the whole cycle all over again. I thought that as long as you had some rhythm while wearing five-inch heels, were reasonably flexible and had few inhibitions, you had it made as a stripper. You’d be rolling around in dough on Egyptian cotton sheets in no time. I was really wrong and it only took me 10 minutes to figure out that strippers WORK for all their money. More after the jump.

Lessons In Love

Like the pandas who are getting lessons in love-making, students at two polytechnic schools in Singapore can take a love elective worth two credits. The government is offering the class, which include watching romantic films, holding hands, and love song analysis, to boost the city state’s flagging birthrate. According to the CIA, the birthrate in Singapore is 9.17 per 1,000. To put that in perspective, the U.S.’s birth rate is 14.16 births per 1,000, and the U.K.’s is 10.67. Get busy, kids!
