My day today was so full of studying I totally forgot about this last blog but I felt the need to write it since it was the last one and I still have stuff to stay. First things first, we are all in line for a celebration since we are through with classes, congratulations everyone. However that also comes with some sadness because this class was the most fun class out of all the classes I've taken in my college career so it'll be sad knowing its over. Another thing I wanted to talk about was thank you to everyone in class who shared parts of their lives with us they normally don't tell people. This class has taught me more than anything that no-one lives a perfect cookie-cutter life. That was a big assumption I had about most people, this will bring change in my life because now I will start to explore people more in depth and let others confide in me and effectively help if needed, which I don't usually do to people I'm not very familiar with. After hearing some of your stories and having openly disclosed private information amongst each other I just wanted to let you all know if you need someone to talk to, no matter what it may be about I'm here for you and you can reach out to me at any time. I'm assuming you can reach me through here but if not reply to this post and we will figure something out. As for my final words on my final blog (probably the last blog on here): I just wanted to let you all know seeing how many of yall walked across for "being called fat" made me feel shitty to be a human, YOU ALL ARE BEAUTIFUL THE & ONLY PERSON WHO CAN TRULY DECIDE YOU'RE NOT IS YOURSELF. Have a great summer guys.

I had a wonderful time in this class. I'm super excited to be graduating but sad this class will be over. I hope I can take everything I learned in this class and use it in the rest of my life. I hope I can teach about sex and sexuality in a positive way. I think that I learned a lot to use in the future wen I become a child counselor. I have learn some good techniques to keep me from shaming children about sex and sexuality. I hope I can take all of it and use it in my personal and professional life. Thanks for a great semester Kelly Stone, it's been a blast!
Well I am sad for this class to be over. I have learned so much from this course. I want to thank everyone that has shared part of their lives for our sake of learning. I have gained an incredible amount of insight from the stories you have shared with the class. I hope everyone has a great summer. I am graduating, and it is a bittersweet goodbye!
I'm so happy to be done with this semester! Almost a college graduate feels awesome! I loved this class and would recommend it to anyone at texas state. I learned so much about sexuality and sexual behaviors that I didn't know before. The last activity we did in class was a great exercise and I taught us all to not judge everyone by how they look on the outside. We all are similar in one way or another and if we can all learn not to be so judgemental on our people look then we could get to know one another a lot easier. I was really surprised/impressed by all the people who crossed the line when she asked for people who's parents didnt have a college degree. For you people I applaud! That takes a lot of hard work and dedication to do because you dont have role models (your parents) to help guide you through it. I have been lucky to have both parents attend college and they know what its like therefore, don't put so much pressure on me. Great class and great people! Hope you all have a great rest of your life :)

I hope this blog can still count! I had a crazy day on Friday and I totally forgot to blog. I have to say I really enjoyed this class. I learned a lot not only about sexuality but about myself. My favorite part was definitely all of the panels. I know that people retain more information when they hear it in story form, and so hearing everyone's stories on the panels really allowed me to take in all the information we were learning. A lot of what the people said on the panels I know will stick with me for a long time. This class really changed my perspective on a lot of issues and increased my knowledge in many areas. I also think it's really cool that we were Stone's first class for this course. She was really excited to teach us and that made the class a lot more fun. I hope the new professor doesn't steal the course from her! Just kidding! But on all honesty I really enjoyed the class and hearing all of yall's stories was really a privilege. I seriously will miss coming to this class and I can not say that about every class I take!
Oh man! I feel like it was just yesterday I was setting up my blogger and now I'm writing my last blog. It's been an amazing semester being in this class. I will admit it was stressful at times but in the grand scheme of things I've learned so much in this class as far as how diverse we all are in our identity and sexuality... Things that I am sure will serve so much purpose in both my personal and work life. I loved having the panels throughout the semester. It helped me to view things from a completely different perspective as well as learning new things I probably wouldn't have otherwise. The panels also opened my mind to explore new things. Well it's a wrap! Good luck to everyone on finals!!!
I have really enjoyed this class! this has probably been one of the most fun and interesting classes i have taken at Texas State. i have learned so much about sexuality and gathered many valuable things that i will use for the rest of my life. i thought the activity we did in class on Wednesday was really cool. although it made many of us uncomfortable, it really put things into perspective and allowed us to see that we are not alone in the struggles we face. Even in a relatively small university class, we can see the diversity of our classmates, yet there are many similarities that do not meet the eye. if i have learned anything from this class it is to love all humans and be aware that people are facing struggles that many of us never even consider. you don't have to agree with or necessarily like another person's opinions or lifestyle but it is important to put yourself in their shoes and to treat other people how you would want to be treated.
THANK YOU KELLY, YOU ARE AWESOME!!!
