Health classes are some of the most important classes people can go through in their school careers. They teach students the basics of being safe and healthy — lessons which they keep with them their whole lives. However, health issues concerning the LGBTQ+ community have been excluded from these lessons. If health classes didn’t exclude LGBTQ+ issues, the amount of STD diagnoses would go down and mental health would improve within the community, and future generations in the community wouldn’t have such a strong urge to turn to substance abuse. All health programs must change to include LGBTQ+ issues in lessons so they aren’t left to unfairly figure everything out on their own.
As a child (now adult) of all things Theatre-darling, I have come to realize that many of the characteristics and actions I have picked up through years of actors training are not always regarded as "normal" behavior. I began the "I'm a performer" thing when I was around 5-years-old when I started ballet, then at 10 I found my love for all other things "performance" at Stagecoach Performing arts school. While I formed interests in many other subjects as I grew up, the strongest pull I have ever had was to being in front of an audience (I know, show off) and I went on to study PA at college and then at University. These kinds of courses are amazing for a person's confidence, but I now know that while the confidence is being drummed in, so are many other "theatrical" traits that are not so accepted when it comes to say, an office job.
Getting an education isn't cheap at all; in fact, it's pretty damn expensive. Many of us drop thousands and thousands to gain a degree and it's ridiculous because gaining an education is crucial if we want to work at a well-paying job and live comfortably. There are even workers to this day still paying off their student loans; that's how expensive college is. And the more pricey degrees fall under are the medical and science fields. Yes, science courses are a lot of money, and students struggle to pay them off. In class or online, these courses aren't pocket money.
If you are writing an essay and you don't know what to write about... throw in some left wing literary theory! I'm serious, teachers and professors everyone love it! There are tons and tons of different kinds of literary theories, but for the sake of this article, let's focus on just "queer theory" and "post colonial theory." Also, just to clarify the therm "queer" is considered offensive, so try to avoid using it in casual conversations. However, with that said...the name for this literary type of theory seems to have not been updated yet.
Not having time to go to a college campus to become a medical assistant is normal. Luckily, medical assisting courses can be taken online. All the education you need to jump start your career as a medical assistant can be taken online without having to attend a traditional college.
After a full school year of hard work, late nights, and stressful days, many people did not receive the credit they had worked so hard for. Despite the good grades many of them had, they simply did not fit the rubric of the AP® test in the end. I had managed to pass the exam, but I watched as many of my friends and classmates, who in my opinion were more deserving, looked at their score and found that they had not made the cut. In fact only 58.3% of my peers that I surveyed actually passed the test. I found myself wondering what the point of the AP® test was and why we even had to take it. We all had already worked hard for the grade we received in the class, what more was there to prove? AP® classes should be treated as equals to college classes; there should not be more work than college classes and there should be no more poorly conceived standardized tests.
I want to spend my first three years of Law school at Santa Clara University, never mind the three years or so I’m going to take to get my general education retaken, done, etc. I don’t have my transcript from my junior college yet, but I know which classes I need to do better in, because it is almost memorized. It is quite the long trip to my junior college by light rail, and it has to wait a touch until I’m ready to enroll in online psychology class. I also need my knee all the way better since my junior college has hills.
Theatre. Performing Arts. Words that don’t mean a thing to a lot of people, simply because it’s not taken as a serious job. As my grandma used to say: “You’re only doing theatre as an hobby, right? I hope you’re thinking about taking a real degree.” And I am. I am in college taking a real degree… in Theatre. I hope that is what she meant about real—seems real enough for me.
Five years ago the Art Professor, David Jones and I began a collaborative comic book unit that included my sociology class and his art classes that we never dreamed would evolve into a full class at the community college where we both teach.
