Slacker Classes

Good news, the passport came, along with my new pilot’s license, a very blue hawaiian shirt, and some dark chocolate.

At 4pm today I get to register for classes next fall. Has anyone here taken any finance or accounting courses? It was recommended to me by a guy in industry (VP of Governmental Affairs and Corporate Communications at Republic Airways) that it would really help my resume to take one or two courses in finance or accounting because it looks really good to companies like his. So I’m thinking about taking that advice, but I need to find an easy one so it doesn’t add too much to my course load. Any advice you can give would be much appreciated (even if it’s not by 4pm today). Also, I’m thinking about trying to take another fun class like Music Appreciation or Bowling if my schedule allows it, but I don’t really have any ideas at this point. Any thoughts on courses you’ve taken or even just heard of that are fun, interesting, and pretty easy?

I don’t know how many of you are familiar with the comic strip Get Fuzzy, but it’s one of my all-time favorites (tied with FoxTrot and topped only by Calvin and Hobbes) and runs in the Chicago Trib. I was doing some back-reading of it online the other day and thought this one was hilarious (you'll probably have to click the link to see a big enough version to read):

I didn't think at this point you'd lose your chance to go to Freiburg...

As for classes, FNR 240 - Wildlife in America is a traditionally super-easy course. I showed up to almost all of the classes and got an A (didn't study). However, I don't think Dr. Devault is teaching it anymore, but it should still be an easy class. (look at pretty pictures of wildlife). I wonder who is teaching it (Devault has a research appointment)... Anyway if you wanted to take that one I could very easily help you study (as if you needed it - it's a very easy class). I'm pretty sure it was the easiest class I've completed so far. (easier than COM 114 even because we didn't have homework) It is the FNR class for non-FNR people...
