    Courtney's Bio:
    I'm an Elementary Education major at CSS. I also plan to minor in Spanish. Having done PSEO, I came to CSS with more than 60 credits. I'm part of Volunteers Involved Through Action (VITA), Students Today Leaders Forever (STLF), and other clubs! Dance has been part of my life for 10 years, and now I'm trying to fit it into my schedule again. I love spending time watching Supernatural and Once Upon a Time, and reading Harry Potter and other great books. I live in a suite with 3 other girls, and we are always finding something fun to do around campus!

Philosophy Course Novel

I am taking an online Philosophy course through my local community college to meet my second to last general. Have you heard the phrase, “saving the best for last?” Yeah, that’s not how I live. I save the worst for last, making it oh so unbearable. I saw that I had two books for this course, so one I’m renting an Amazon Kindle version of, the other I ordered for like $3 used. Well when the used book came in the mail, guess who was surprised that it was a novel, not a textbook? I think that means I actually have to read it………

Now, yes I know, shame on me, of course I should read the textbook!

But I’m telling you right now, a lot of people don’t. Sometimes the professor will only literally use the textbook for 8 questions divided into 3 different assignments throughout the semester. They are expensive and professors often use some presentation slide program for notes. Sometimes what the professor wants you to know in the class barely is even touched in dept in the text. So I hate textbooks and I hate reading for classes I don’t like. I don’t like Philosophy if you haven’t noticed already. So I pouted for the first few days. Then I had a shortage of actual books to read while tanning, so I jumped ahead and read 70 of the 500ish pages already. The class doesn’t even start til Memorial Day. Achiever alert!
