First confusing post.

My name is Ricardo Beer. I am from San Diego, California. I love the beach but to be honest, I love being at Penn State more than anything. I am a public relations and advertising major. I enrolled into SC 200 because I heard that Professor Read is an awesome guy. I know a couple of people that have taken this course and every single person has something great to say about it. photo.jpg
As a non science major, it is really comforting to know that the professor understands that I am not inclined nor mentally wired to be a scientist. I feel like that can sometimes be a huge problem with other professors. 

The picture I chose to upload is of me, my brother, his friend Avi, and my best friend Eitan. We have grown up together our entire lives and I love them all. My brother Ari is actually really good at science. I have a twitter, it is https://twitter.com/iamRicBeer
 and I also have an instagram @mrCervesa. I hope to read some of your comments for this class. I am really excited to take this class.

Professor Read? WTF is that?
-- Andrew

-I agree it is comforting to see that there is a science class for non-science majors here at PSU. I like that Andrew included in his syllabus that this is a course for non-science majors who possibly have a loathing for science. Similar to Michael Darby
, I have always wanted to pursue a career in the business world. Despite being semi-interested in the science world, it just wasn’t for me. I do not expect this class to be easy, but I hope that it will become easier because the information seems more relevant to my life (unlike last semester’s astronomy class). I had heard rumors of a science class for non-science majors, but did not believe them (until later confirmed by my advisor) because it sounded too good to be true. I am excited to be able to say I’m looking forward to my science gen ed!

I also happen to be a Public Relations major who is not mentally wired to be a scientist. It's great to have found a professor who understands that science doesn't come easily for everyone and I'm glad a good portion of the course is blogging, since I don't mind writing at all. The course and the professor seem very open and flexible in that Andrew is open to any topics of interest to the students.

Since you said you were from San Diego, here's a list of reasons why San Diego is awesome, which I'm sure is no surprise to you. My dad is from Los Angeles and has friends down in San Diego. I've visited there a couple times and loved it.
