10 Easy-A Classes Everyone Should Take

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.

We all have a love-hate relationship with a 2:30 p.m. kickoff at Bryant Denny Stadium, especially when it's 94 degrees.

1. Immediate sadness

What do you mean I have to wake up at 9 a.m. to get ready?

2. Bracing yourself for the worst

It's a marathon not a sprint ladies and gentleman.

3. Accepting the game is going to happen

Rain or shine we are all in that student section screaming our heads off.

4. Trying to wear the least amount clothes possible without being naked on the Quad

Is it me or does it get 10 times more hot the minute you walk on to the quad?

5. Shedding a tear when you walk out your front door once you feel the heat and humidity on your skin

Is it fall yet?

6. Drowning your sorrows inside a Red Solo cup at 11:30 a.m. at a fraternity tailgate

Maybe I'll forget about the humidity if I start frat hopping now.

7. Getting in line to go through security realizing it'll take an hour to actually get inside Bryant Denny

More security is great and all but remember the heat index in Alabama? Yeah, it's not easy being smushed like sardines before even getting into Bryant Denny.

8. Feeling the sweat roll down every part of your body

Oh yeah I am working on my tan and all but what is the point of showering before kick off?

9. Attempting to cheer on the Tide, but being whacked in the head with a shaker by the girl behind you.

Shakers are tradition, but do we have to spin it around in a full 360 every two seconds? I have a migraine from just thinking about it.

10. Leaving a quarter into the game because Alabama is kicking ass and you're about to have a heat stroke.

I'll watch the rest in air conditioning thank you very much!

We may not love the 2:30 kickoffs but Roll Tide!

I Made Emma Chamberlain's Mediocre Vegan Cookies, And They're Pretty Incredible

Emma and her vegan cookies have made their way into my heart, and are here to stay.

One day, I went down the black hole that is 'YouTube at 3 am' and discovered my favorite social media influencer of all time: Emma Chamberlain. I started binge watching her videos every night for about a week, where I came across her "Cooking With Emma" series. I decided that I wanted to give her vegan antics a go for myself.

I've never cooked or baked anything with the intention of it being vegan, so not only is that new territory for me, but I've never even eaten a vegan cookie. The only reason I'm doing this is because Emma did, and she is aesthetic goals.

To start the journey of vegan baking, I took to Pinterest, just like Emma, and found this recipe to use. Although the video that inspired all of this used a gluten free recipe, I opted for only vegan, because I'm allergic to most of the ingredients that make things gluten-free.


In true Emma style, I used a whisk to combine the wet ingredients together, making sure to use her special technique.


Then, I did the same thing with the dry ingredients.


After that, I dumped everything together and combined all of the ingredients.


Once they were combined, I chopped up a vegan chocolate bar, because Emma and I like chocolate chunk cookies, not chocolate chip, there's a difference.


Now that everything is combined, I made balls of dough and stuck it on a pan, and baked them while I binged more Emma, because what else would I be doing in my spare time?



The recipe said to make the balls a lot smaller, but we aren't perfect, so I made them gigantic. In my head, I thought the worst thing that could happen was it turn into one big cookie, but that's a whole other video you need to watch.

I took them out of the oven, and they were brown on the top, but still a little doughy. At this point I was tired of waiting and eager to eat them, so I disappointingly set them aside to cool, which only lasted a minute or so before I snagged one up to try.



The taste was definitely one I've never associated with cookies, and came to the conclusion that if I decided to go vegan, it would be doable with these cookies and Emma Chamberlain by my side.



Emma inspired me to get out of my comfort zone, which is a reoccurring theme throughout her channel, and I'm happy to be apart of it. She taught me that even if mediocre cookies is all you have, eat them with pride because you made them yourself.
