My Top Five Subject Recommendations

Anyone who’s been to college, or has ever flipped through a course catalogue, knows there’s a metric butt load of classes you can possibly take. Even if you’ve already decided your major, you might need some filler classes. If you ask for advice on what to take, you’ll probably get a different answer from every person, and those classes will customarily completely coincidentally coincide with their major.

Some people reason that grudges are a good thing because it helps ensure that your lesson is learned, that you don’t forget, and that you don’t get burned more than once. The logic here is that, by being continuously reminded of what happened, you won’t let yourself fall prey to suffering any of the same pain again.
