I need to register for next semester at school, and I'm waffling on what classes to take next. (Really, I needed to register at least a week ago, but whatever.) I need another science credit, and I'm trying to decide between these three possibilities:

MET 1010. INTRODUCTION TO METEORLOGY.
Introduction to study of atmospheric phenomena. Includes study of atmospheric structure, heat budget, winds, air pollution, and local and regional weather forecasting.

BSC 1026. BIOLOGY OF HUMAN SEXUALITY.
General, non-laboratory course designed to introduce students to various biological aspects of human sexuality, including sexual genetics and sex determination, sexual anatomy, physiology and development, processes of fertilization, pregnancy, birth control, sexually transmitted diseases, menstruation, menopause, and aging. Other appropriate areas may be discussed when time permits. Students should be able to complete college level reading, writing, and mathematics assignments as part of this course.

PHY 1020. CONCEPTUAL PHYSICS.
Prerequisites: High school algebra. An introduction to classical physics, including a study of motion, fundamental forces, energy and momentum, heat and thermodynamics, waves, electricity and magnetism, optics, and elements of atomic and nuclear physics. This course fulfills the general education science core course requirements.

Meteorology seems like a semi-decent transition from the Astronomy course I took this semester. Biology of Human Sexuality sounds super intriguing, but also like it could piss me off a lot depending on the professor. Conceptual Physics seems like it could be interesting, too, since I've never taken a physics course, not even in high school.

Poll #1990331 Help me choose!

Which course should I take?

Intro to Meteorology
2(33.3%)
Biology of Human Sexuality
2(33.3%)
Conceptual Physics
2(33.3%)


I haven't looked up class times and such, which will make a difference too, but we'll see.

I have a lot of other classes I still need to take, but I'm limiting myself to two in a semester, and I don't really want to break up my math much, so my second course is likely going to be Calculus for Business & Social Science next semester. SO THAT SHOULD BE FUN.

I still have to take US Gov't, too, and a speech course, so I'm putting those two off as long as possible, because I am dreading them both :/

If you're taking a math course, you might like breaking it up with something not so math-heavy as physics, though physics would be my choice for most interesting.
I was leaning towards physics myself, although I wasn't actually able to find that course at a time that works with my work schedule, so I might have to put the science course off for another semester anyway :/
Boo. Go for underwater basket weaving!

(Also seriously, maybe get speech out of the way.)
I am so unprepared for a speech class, it's not even funny :/ I don't think I'm capable of it right now. I did pull the trigger on the US Government class, though, since I couldn't get into a science course this semester.
Go US Government!
UM HELLO THINK OF THE WEATHER WARDEN FIC YOU CAN WRITE ME
YOUR PRIORITIES ARE NOT MY PRIORITIES
YOUR PRIORITIES ARE TERRIBLE THOUGH
GO FOR PHYSICS! PHYSICS IS AMAZING!!! I still sometimes wish I had become a physicist instead of an English teacher. Also, a course titled "conceptual" physics and only requiring algebra is not going to be math-heavy. It's for non-majors, right? If it doesn't require calculus as a pre-req, you won't have to do any of the crazy math shit. GO PHYSICS!!!
hahahaha I was leaning that way! And yes, it's for non-majors, I just need a basic science course to fulfill the requirement to finish my AA.
