omgomgomg ASKA! It was so stressful I almost cried (I cry to relieve stress and my friends always make fun of me). I was SO ready for it like “BRING IT ON” but wow was my confidence kicked real hard in the ####!!!! Psych is really popular with the crowds huh? -.- I also ended up taking ANT110H1 which was my LAST resort because I had/have noooo idea what the course description is trying to tell me. Think you could shed some light? GAWD last night was so stressful! T^T #cantgetoverit
heY THERE FRIEND,
there are a lot of exclamation points in this question and i’m kind of intimidated. also, i’m not sure i can actually find the question buried in all this panic. so – i know it’s hard, but do your best – try and get over it. you’re all grown up now and you can handle this. aska believes in you.
okay, motivational poster time over.
yeah, psych is pretty popular. you just have to take a look at this site’s psychology category to see that. it’s one of only a few POSts with its own category here. a true honour – i’m sure the psych department knows and is delighted.
now, ANT110. this is the course description. i’m not an anthropologist and i have never taken a class on anthropology, but it says pretty clearly that it’s going to be a class that examines different cultures’ and different thinkers’ perspectives on nature. pretty cool.
so, for example, you might look at the difference in perspectives between a North American career-mum who thinks that her lawn exists to best the other mummies’ lawns, and a Mongolian steppe warrior who’s never seen a lawn in his entire life.
obviously, one of those people is a bloodthirsty war machine, while the other is a member of an Asian ethnic group that dates back many centuries, so there’re bound to be some interesting differences.
but enough guesswork from me. if you really want to know what the course is about, wait for the course reading list to be uploaded onto the bookstore’s site. that should give a good idea of course content. also, reading up on the research done by the prof who’s teaching the course is a good way to get insight about what they’re likely to focus on.
anyway, i hope you like the class!
P.S. i can’t believe i made a panic! at the disco reference. i’ve regressed back to age 14. god help us all.
