B.S. (A Meme)

Several weeks ago Tiggerlane tagged me with the education meme. The rules: Devise a list of 5-10 courses you would take to fix your life. It's more fun to be in classes with friends, so include one class from the person who tagged you that you'd also like to take. Tag five.

(1)The amount of time that has passed since I was given this assignment proves that I already have a degree in procrastination. However, a refresher course in time management might be helpful. I would probably call it Personal Time Space Continuum 365. (yeah, my own little universe) This class would provide an overview of the students one year journey around the sun. I just don't know if I can fit it in my schedule.

(2) Especially at this time of year, Making Payday Last Forever $101 is highly recommended. We've all heard the saying "So much month left at the end of the money," or "So long between Paydays, so short between Bills." Well, this class would apply the theories from Space Time Continuum so the financially challenged could change money for month and long for the short of it. If you understood that sentence you already have it figured out. Tiggerlane might appreciate this class because she is in the final stages of building, furnishing, and decorating a new house.

(3) Life Bucks. Often. Therefore Bumps & Dumps 1Õ1 is also in my required curriculum. The student in this class would learn how to climb on, hang on, and survive the ride. Unfortunately, most will have to repeat this class. Over and Over and Over.
Several mandatory field trips .

(4) Diet and Exercise While You Sleep €¿
. All my friends would join me in this class. It would be such a success story that students would have to bring their own blankets and pillows. You say, "in your dreams!" I say, "e x a c t l y."

(5) After graduating from Washington State University some years ago, Karmyn acknowledge that something was missing from her education.
"Mom," she asked, "You know how schools teach the three R's: Readin', Ritin', and 'Rithmatic?"
"Yes, dear."
"Well, they need to teach the fourth R: Real World."
So my final class offered, in my daughter's honor, is Real World 1©1. Basics would include how to read between the lines, decipher labels, be wary of signing the dotted line, differentiate between what is good and what is too good to be true, and talk with the animals. I just threw "talking to the animals" in for the heck of it.

All are welcome to create and post your life fixer courses. Let me know, so I can enroll as soon as possible.

I could do with all these classes but I would put 2 and 4 top of my list!

I totally agree with #5. So many people these days might have the book smarts, but they definitely lack the street smarts.

Hmmmmmm, decreasing the size of my hind end while I sleep?!?!? Brilliant! Sign me up for that class.

Great courses! I need them all but the one I will definitely show up for - like you didn't know! - is #4.
DesLily said…
I think the reason they don't teach "the real world" is because no one really wants to let go of their dreams and find out what it's really like.

Your daughter is so right...But then, everyone would drop outta college after that course.

May I sign up for class #4 please and pass on class #5 (it sucks sometimes) :)
mark said…
Excellent course offering. I think I could use all of them.

Fun meme! I'm sure I could benefit from each of these classes. Many I feel I've taken a time or two!

Real world. Hmmmm. I once took a class called "Alternate Realities." You think I'm kidding but I'm not.

Clean your house, Pam.
Karmyn R said…
Somehow there is a misconception that I actually said that - but to my memory, I never did. Maybe, but I can't remember. Perhaps I said it when attending the "Alternate Realities" class. ha ha

here's the thing: your body does lose weight while you sleep. a study came out of 5 things to do to lose 5 lbs in a week or something like that. one was to get 20 more min. of sleep a nite.
BarnGoddess said…
sign me of for 2 and 4!!!

I would LOVE to diet and exercise while I sleep!!
BarnGoddess said…
that was SIGN ME UP...geesh cannot type today.

also, along the lines of Karmyns observation..I am constantly preaching to my almost 14 yo son about having good credit. Nowadays, it means EVERYTHING.

They never taught me that in school...luckily, I am a quick study and learned on my own several years ago in the real world.
Tiggerlane said…
GREAT JOB! I need all these classes, thank you very much. And the tuition to afford them.

I wish ALL schools taught "Real World" - that one class would make my BBA and MBA much more worthy!
Kila said…
Are there still openings for Class 4?!
kailani said…
Making PayDay Last Forever? Sign me up please!

Shelby said…
loved the classes too!!
Christine said…
I definetly need to take classes #1 and #2. I was tagged to do this by Desert Songbird a couple of weeks ago and I'm just a big 'ol procrastinator,too.

#5, talking to my animals, it's almost like they understand me. They don't offer me any advice, just some good old fashion love.
