The Title

The title of my blog comes from the joke that those who have "really easy" majors take made-up classes. More commonly the phrase is used to mock the course loads of division I athletes who take random classes in order to be eligible. As a Physical Education Major, I have encountered many who have mocked my choice of career path and say how easy I must have it. But, as many of you know, that is not the case. Phys. Ed. is a very challenging major with classes like Anatomy and Physiology, Exercise Physiology, Educational Psychology, and Motor Behavior (just to name a few). Not only do we take hard classes, but we also have to be passionate about teaching and have a love for helping kids. Some things cannot be taught in college classes, they are learned through experience. Some people are born with the characteristics that make a good Physical Educator and I encounter them every day in my "not so easy" classes.


  1. Kelsey! What a dead fab first entry that is very well written. Can't wait to read more from you.

  2. One question, one comment. Q: Wouldn't you think that weaving baskets under water would be difficult? C: Don't let yourself be judged by others, even those with the majors that are recognized as "difficult", things like Physics or Biomedical Engineering. Excellent thoughts.
