I’ve always said that colleges should work on offering classes that are actually useful in the real world. Real talk: I’m not often asked to do math (other than when I’m attempting to split up a bill, and subsequently failing, but that’s what phone calculators are for), do a quick translation, or explain, in detail, Foucault’s theories, and those are all classes that I took. I would love to know how to send an e-mail that doesn’t have an excessive amount of exclamation points but still sounds friendly, how to force a boy to date me without having to pretend that I’m super chill and like beer, and it would’ve been beyond fabulous if I learned a trick to make myself go out in the world when there’s a Netflix marathon that I’m deep into.
Luckily, Ball State University has a class that’s actually useful. I have 0 interest in living in Indiana (unless it’s Pawnee), but I might take a quick trip to Muncie to learn how to land a date.
