so this class sucks because there are tests and lectures? I will try to avoid classes that involve those elements.

I don't know anyone around here well enough to formulate any personal attacks like that. :lol:

No, the class sucked because ALL there was was tests and lectures. Which the professor specifically warned us about. No discussions, no assignments, just lectures and tests.

A philosophy class without discussion?

That should be against the law. Punishable by keelhauling.

Drawing classes? Since there's very little to draw in an auditorium, I'm pretty sure it'd have to be held somewhere smaller.

Hey! College is a once in a lifetime experience. And I feel my experience lacks girls and some more general socialization. :lol: I'm just trying to make the best of my last semester of college. :P

I've spent years already studying with other guys for hours straight often studying past midnight and pulling all nighters (haha, that kinda sounds sexual in retrospect) and sitting in computer labs cranking out shitty engineering reports that can often exceed 30 pages. After pulling a 30 page report out of your ass every two weeks for just one class you start to envy the political science majors.

I'm just asking for a piece of what everyone else is experiencing ... an easy class where the ratio of girls to guys is ACTUALLY around 50%.

It's not like I'm going to try actively wooing girls during class every day. Honestly I would be happy just having something to look at while I daydream during class.

You're just jealous I thought of the idea first. :wink:

TL;DR: Yea, im a pervert :lol:

I thought about that, but I'm not good at drawing so I wouldn't get a decent grade in the class. (I want an easy A :P)

That's kinda what turned me away from taking a philosophy class. It just seems idiotic to me to study the theories of past philosophers without any kind of discussion.

Dude, why waste time? You need to be taking a yoga class. :P

srsly, I'm not kidding.

of course, your brain might melt and run out your ears, but hey, that's why you're there.

And (same with the drawing class) it doesn't matter how good you are at it-- you will improve, and probably have fun. The prof just wants to see you take a real interest. Plus it'll make your back feel better in the next ten years after all the hours you'll be spending at a computer.

Alot of people seem to be saying that i need to take an art class ... I'm not sure if thats because I'm posting in artist dominated boards or because i genuinely should take one though

Art is also relatively easy, and in my experience there isn't much homework. There are art history and theory classes, of course, but writing an essay for a drawing, still life, life-drawing, watercolour etc course would be silly.

yeah, I think we are a pretty art oriented crowd here, being interested in games from both a player's and a maker's view.

I didn't see classes listed, but if you ever want to do anything game related on the moving model end, I would strongly recommend an anatomy-for-artists class... also a color theory class will change the way you actually see, so that's fun. Both classes will make you really look at your subjects, and again, a strong base of drawing skill is not necessary for grades.

...and as a fan of smart, creative girls, I strongly endorse art classes. :wink:

...mmm, smart girls...

Just throwing this out there, but the lowest grade I've attained in post-secondary school was in an elementary design class. It also had the most out of class assignments by far. It was also very fun, interesting and informative, though.

additionally, when meeting girls in an art class you can tell how crazy they are and avoid them just by looking at their art! if only they had indicators like that in the real world, I could avoid fifty percent of all relationships!

Oooh, yeeah... I don't think it's such a great idea to count on this method. :roll:
Not as reliable as you might wish... *ahem*

but it's the same risk you take with any other girl, so why not? And who's to say you aren't crazy?
