Our cohort was unable to take moral problems (SOC 221) together, so it was quite different not knowing everyone in the class. At first I didn’t know what to expect of this class because I have never taken a sociology course before and the professor was fresh out of graduate school. There was something unique about this professor though. She had two little pig tails in her hair, was rather short, and wasn’t very old, maybe late twenties. Come to find out she was a great professor because she made you think about what was going on in the world today and what caused it and how it could have been prevented or what it may or may not affect.
During the hour and 15 minute class we talked about trends that were going on in the current society. We mostly talked about in her words, “Things that were fucked up.” She got every person’s mind in the room thinking every single day. Everyone in the class had something to say about the certain topic we were talking about that day. Whether that be how our society views homosexual, heterosexual, and bisexual individuals or how our Earth is being destroyed at a faster rate than ever before.
At the end of this class it got me thinking more and more about how our society is changing each and every day. We can’t resist the change because we will never grow as human beings or as a society. Without change we are lifeless. I am going to take what I have learned from this class and use it in my decision making and how I treat other people. This world is all we have so by creating problems we are only shortening its lifespan.
