  • Psychology
  • Art
  • Drama
  • Political Science
  • Sociology
  • International Studies
  • Comparative History of Ideas (CHID--because the acronym is part of the appeal)

my list includes history--i would love to be reincarnated as a barbara tuchman. and architecture--i'll never get over erector sets and plastic building blocks.

I could do either of those. And I totally forgot Comparative Literature (whose abbreviation is entirely too offensive for this Blog of Wholesomeness and Decency).

in one way or another i studied most of whats on your list. i just realized recently that i wish i had studied something the gave me a better paycheck.

things i would like to have studied now: architecture, neurological medicine, agriculture. i think i would make a marvelous farmer. i like the britches you get to wear and all that hard work makes one lean and hard...ahem...well, anyway. thats my list. and i'm sticking to it. :)

What about Comparative Religion, Masonry, and Being Spiderman?

Ooh, Comparative Religion is definitely one I should have included in the list. Masonry, not so much. I opted out of the Being Spider-Man degree in favor of the Being Batman degree, which I carry with pride.

Psychology is really interesting for the first 15 credits, and then you realize that once you understand Freud's, Jung's and Skinner's theories about childhood development, you can take a pretty good guess what their theories are regarding personality and motivation, and every class thereon gets more and more tedious. I switched to English at 21 credits.
