Yeah, school starts next week. I'm taking, among a *load* of other classes, Integrative Biology 140: Human Reproduction.

I am looking forward to this class 'cause this seems to be strong suit (hormones, cycles, and the mechanics of it all ).

Anyone else taking anything interesting? Any other colleges have interesting classes about sex? We've got a few here at Berkeley.

suggestions:
Psych 136: Human Sexuality
and those deCal classes about Male and Female Sexuality
and there's some Women's Studies class about porn, I think.

At OCAD (Ontario College of Art and Design) You can take "Queer Theory: Sexuality and Representation" as a course that overviews the major themes in development in queer studies from 1980 to the present.

cool, eh? I never got to take it, because it's always full!

I also start. I go to SMC (Santa Monica College) next week. Hopefully major in graphic design. I want to transfer to Cal State L.A. I am very happy, because all I've been doing is working so now I get to change my schedule and have some time to myself and school. The cool thing about my job is that you can make your own schedule. Woo-Hoo

Jenny kissed me when we met, jumping from the chair she sat in;
Time, you thief, who love to get sweets into your list, put that in:
Say I'm weary, say I'm sad, say that health and wealth have missed me, say I'm growing old, but add,
Jenny kissed me.

Gumdrop Girl another interesting class that I have taken at Berkeley was "Alternative Sexual Identities: A Historical Evaluation"

As far as my class load goes I am taking
Chem 3A
Bio 1B
ESPM 114
Rhetoric 1B

That is 16 units and then I am working 16 hours a week. 16 is obviously not my lucky number this semester!!!!! Just kidding I really like my job because I just got a raise, a promotion, and a new computer!!!! Yeah for jobs!!!!!

You college gals are so lucky I wanna go to Brown University, yay!

Well, I'm still in high school, but I get to take some college courses since I did well on this test, hehe I'm taking a music class (music is my strong suit.), and the other class i'm taking is called "The Turbulent Years: American History of the 1960's and 1970's", which I'm thinking should be really cool, since I'm completely obsessed with the 60's and 70's because I'm a neo-hippie, lol

Well, since I'm going to be a freshman this year, in high school, my classes are not so interesting. The only thing close to sex or sexuality is health, which is more of diet/bones and stuff like that. But I like telling everyone my classes so I'll do that anyway.

PE
Health/Careers
Algebra 2 Honors (I took algebra 1 H in eigth grade)
Spanish 2 Honors (I took spanish 1 H in eighth grade too)
English 1 Honors
Biology 1 Honors

Yeah, just boring freshman classes.

sunflower: i've done chem 3A and bio 1B already.

when it comes to chem, i rocked 3A synthesis (3B is something else entirely, uggh!) so if you ever need help with that, drop me a line.

bio 1B was a lot of fun. i had an excellent GSI.

and if you want to keep your sanity, don't do bio 1A with chem 3B together in spring. both classes kicked my arse!

You are all giving me the urge to return to school (I already have a couple of degrees). I was sick of it all, but I guess things can change.

Man, I'm crazy. I'v got a work load, and I'm only a sophmore.

Biology 1-2
Computer Animation
Pre-calc
Geometry
English
Advanced Placement Euro History

Why I am taking 2 math classes, I do not know. Its all screwy because I skipped geometry and went straight from pre algebra to Algebra 3-4. Made my parents happy...
Through all of this I still have to make time for the play I'm in and my friends and my boyfriend, and Jobs Daughters. Thank god I'm good at time managment.

It's sooooooo unfair, in the UK we have boring classes and don't get to choose anything interesting. When I go to college I'm taking a course in Theatrical make up, which is basically doing all the blood and gore etc....cool eh! That's what I want to do when I get older!

Wow, we started school back August 3rd!! I have IB French 5, IB World Area Studies, IB English 4, IB Calculus, and IB Theory of Knowledge (philosophy). Next semester I add psychology =) IB is just short for International Baccalaureate, which means that my classes are not based on the typical American school system but rather a combination of the best European systems. It's really difficult and time consuming, but I think it'll pay off!

Winter, I want to go to Brown also =) I'm visiting it at Fall Break in October, along with a bunch more.

We don't have any specific sexuality classes, but interestingly enough in TOK we read a Greek play by Aristophanes about a few Greek women who were so tired of their men always leaving them behind for war that they refused to have sex with them until they signed a peace treaty =)
