    Philosophy. Or I would finish the Semantics course I started at UF.

    something to do with chemistry would be interesting, or perhaps psychology/philosophy...

    If it's for one semester, I don't know. I'd want access to something that I can't get any other way and I'd want to write a paper on my research or to invent something that requires research that I could only do with the course. Or something that entitles me to an internship where I want to be an intern. If it's just for the sake of book learning with assistance from a teacher, I don't want to bother with a course for that. I'd learn from books on my own.
    I will accept no further friend requests. This doesn't mean I don't love you or anything so don't be offended.

    I loved lit theory, and The Modern International Novel, but skipping any real philosophy courses is self-flagelation worthy.

    I was also interested in neuroscience, comp sci a little, and geology. In grad school I was criticized for being too "flighty."

    Forestry or botany. Some kind of environmental science.
