We all hate signing up for classes, it's a stressful process that could give even Kristen Stewart anxiety. Sometimes, we have gaps in our schedules that need to be filled and these top ten are the way to go if you're looking to be interested but not overloaded. If you find yourself needing to add on an extra couple of hours, why not give these options a try?

1. Harry Potter English Classes

A great course option to take if you have been hit over the head with Beowulf a few too many times. Perfect for the burnt out English major, or just someone looking to go deeper into a series we all loved as kids. The biggest perk of this class is you've most likely already read the whole reading list.

2. Sociology 101

This course goes well with other humanities. All have similar theories, but this one will blow your mind. This information on how social groupings, social structures, and social change happen will help you with friends and family, and maybe, just maybe, lead to you changing the world some day.

3. Music Appreciation

Talk about culture! In this class, you can learn about the history of music, how it ismade, or even how to recognize certain composers. Mainly, though you will go to a lot of performances on campus and be glad you did.

4. Physical Education Classes

If you want to workout like aerobics Barbie taught you to, try these classes. You can choose a 90's staple, like step aerobics, or try something completely new like sailing or ice skating. Either way, you will likely end up with a nice ascot.

5. Introduction to Film Studies/ Film History

To be fair, this class and music appreciation are very similar, except you will spend time watching interesting movies instead of performances. Also if you are a "Star Wars" nerd like me your professor is probably one too and will make tons of references. So why not take it?

6. Introduction to Chinese

Or pretty much any other language. Other than teaching you the basics for your summer study abroad, it can help you connect with other people. Also, you may look just as awkward as "R-Patts" one day when your Grandmother tries to ask you how to say something in that foreign language.

7. Abnormal Psychology

Other than teaching you all about why Dexter needed so many plastic sheets, this course will enlighten you to the effects of drugs and alcohol on the brain, learning disabilities, and so much more.

8. Anthropology 101

If you have ever wanted to be Indiana Jones, grab your hat and your whip so you too can steal ancient treasures. You can learn about evolution and how humans have changed over time. By the end, you will want to crack out your whip and go on an expedition to another country.

9. Public Speaking

This class may actually help you get a job, improve your confidence, and make you more articulate. You will walk out a proud nerd, ready to look an employer in the eye and beg for a job.

10. Art History

Who doesn't love staring at pretty pictures all day? It's essentially old-world Instagram. You will learn to identify artists, time periods, and eras of art. It's a class that has passed the test of time.

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.


7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

An excerpt by Katherine F. Messina

Fear clawed at my stomach as my heart threatened to beat out of my chest. My legs were shaking from the exertion when the grass beneath my feet turned to concrete. Sweat caused hair to stick to my face. I stopped, looking around, my breathing harsh. A sudden flash of light blinded me as screeching filled the air. I backed towards the woods quickly, tripping over my own feet. My backside hit the ground with a thud. A metal contraption came to a stop inches from me. I took a deep breath, trying to steady myself.

What is that thing?

A tall man stepped out of the strange device. He had large arms and blonde hair. He towered over me.

"What the hell are you doing in the middle of the road? I could have killed you!" he shouted, waving his arms.

I tried to scramble away. His eyes swept over my ripped clothes and bloody feet, and his face changed into one of sympathy.

"Hey," he said in a soothing voice, "I'm sorry. I didn't mean to scare you. Are you okay?"

He held his hand out towards me, and I eyed it suspiciously.

"I'm Tucker," he offered, "What's your name?"

"Sh-shay," I stuttered.

Rustling in the woods behind me spurred me into action.

"Let's go, fast."

Tucker stood completely still and stared into the woods, drawn to the rustling. The Kurasa crashed through the trees, searching for me. Their black eyes landed on Tucker and lit up with malice. They stood a foot taller than him, nearly 7 feet. Their grey skin looked like mud. Tucker froze, and panic filled his eyes.

"In the car," he said, his voice tight.

I didn't argue. I jumped into the metal monstrosity. He was across the road and into the seat with the circular object in front of it in what felt like seconds. I could feel the iron throughout the car. The Kurasa kept their distance. Iron repelled them like most fae even in small doses. I was feeling sick, and I'm only half faerie. The tires squealed as he took off, leaving the Kurasa behind.

"You alright?" Tucker asked, "You look a bit pale."

"Yes, I'll be fine."

"I know that was scary, but it'll be okay. I'll get you far away from them."

"You seem oddly calm for someone who just encountered that," my suspicion rose.

"It's not my first time. Hopefully, it'll be your last. I hunt things like them. Or I used to."

Warning bells went off in my head. What would he do if he found out I was one of them?

"You can let me out soon," I said.

"Don't be ridiculous. I'm going to take you to my place and let you clean up. You'll be safe there, I promise," he gave me a warm smile.

Until you find out what I really am.
