3. Great Books
Although I would not classify this class as “easy”, for non-English majors, this class gets you to read novels, short stories, and poems that you might normally read in a Great Books class; which can be a nice break from your normal coursework.
Another of this weeks reads was Her Nightly Embrace by Adi Tantimedh! . It had been a while since I've read a good mystery and this one peaked my interest as it's been optioned for TV. . In the book you read about Ravi Chandra who falls accidentally into being a PI. But Ravi has a special talent. He can see Gods. . While reading HNE you can definitely tell that it's been optioned for TV. It almost reads like a screenplay. You'll read about 4 different cases that Ravi investigates. . Overall I enjoyed Her Nightly embrace. But it was the lack of character development and a few plot wholes that caused me to give the book ⭐️⭐️⭐️ . Full Synopsis from Goodreads: Ravi Chandra Singh is the last guy you’d expect to become a private detective. A failed religious scholar, he now works for Golden Sentinels, an upmarket London private investigations agency. His colleagues are a band of gleefully amoral and brilliant screw-ups: Ken and Clive, a pair of brutal ex-cops who are also a gay couple; Mark Chapman, a burned-out stoner hiding a great mind; Marcie Holder, a cheerful former publicist; Benjamin Lee, a techie prankster from South London; David Okri, an ambitious lawyer from a well-connected Nigerian immigrant family; and Olivia Wong, an upper-class Hong Kong financial analyst hiding her true skills as one of the most dangerous hackers in the world—all under the watchful eye of Roger Golden, wheeler-dealer extraordinaire, and his mysterious office manager, Cheryl Hughes. . Thrust into a world where the rich, famous, and powerful hire him to solve their problems and wash their dirty laundry, Ravi finds himself in over his head with increasingly gonzo and complex cases – and the recent visions that he’s been having of Hindu gods aren’t helping. As Ravi struggles to stay ahead of danger, he wonders if the things he’s seeing are a delusion – or if he might, in fact, be an unrecognized shaman of the modern world.

6. Water Aerobics
Water Aerobics can be challenging at times, but for a PE class, you get a good workout and there is not much to it besides showing up and keeping an activity log.
7. Power Reading
This course provides students with skills to read different texts as efficiently as possible to help retain more information.
A much needed latte and quiet moment with my book on a hectic Monday ☕️. . Thoroughly enjoying Daughter of The Forest 🙌🏻 I'm really getting into the story now and am captivated by each new little detail. There's just something about a fantasy with an evil witch type antagonist who enchants an entire family that really is perfect for fall reading📖. . What type of villain is your favourite? I'm pretty partial to ones that aren't as common anymore, like a witch from ancient Irish lore ☘️. .
8. Dinosaurs: Then and Now
In this course, you will examine how dinosaurs work within the realm of geology and biology, study the history of dinosaur science and their prevalence in popular culture. Who doesn’t want to take a class on dinosaurs?
