Random Thought of The Day: SCHOOL EDITION


Post whatever's on your mind (school-wise) so we can all commiserate/celebrate together!

---

Almost all of my classes this semester are really small, so participation is going to be key

First day for me is Tuesday evening. I just hope I won't be the oldest.

I actually left a message on my instructor's voicemail I have to leave 30 minutes early because of work. Just trying to show I'm a responsible student.

I might also add a third class but that might be too much at the moment. However, without this particular class I will have to wait until Fall 2016 for nursing program. If I do the class now, I can get in next fall.

For now, I need to study for philosophy but I am too tired. Thank goodness for the labor day weekend.

Depends on how ambitious you're feeling I guess, but if I were you I would start with all 3 classes and then see how it goes from there? Maybe you could drop the class if you feel like stuff is too overwhelming, but if not you'll be good to go for your program next fall! Just a thought =)

English sucks. Some of you might be aware of my issues with my previous English class (which I managed to pass with an A- lol), but my school requires a 100-level course and a 200-level course, which I want to get out of the way ASAP. So I'm taking this course and I'm just like... damn, really dude? 20% participation (AGAIN, god DAMN IT) and so of course I'm gonna have to inform my professor (well, plus one other) about my anxiety and stuff - gonna do that tomorrow.

Anyway I looked at the syllabus and we have to read a bunch of books I don't care about and yadda yadda English sucks. Funny to think I was considering taking a 300-level course for fun next semester because I enjoy writing (NOT TALKING)... but then I found out it was mostly about poetry. Man, **** poetry.

Wondering if I should I actually attempt to talk to people in my classes this semester, or if I should go into full-on loner mode.

School holidays here start in about 3 weeks and by then I need to have my work placement organized. That means I'll be working from 9AM to 5PM for 5 days on the HOLIDAYS.

Greeeeaaaat

This is gonna be a long, long 18 straight hours of no sleep. First class in a couple of hours, then working overnight.

I could do it if I could afford any passing grade(C or better) but I can't. I need A's or a minimal B+'s to get my GPA up so I can get accepted into the program.

I think I'll follow your lead. The problem is, the more I try to stay to myself, the more people seem to try to talk to me! Human logic.

Funny you both mention those because I was just buying textbooks for classes, wanting to die, because my textbooks are so expensive that I can't afford them even though I have to buy them but now I really need money to pay off the remaining fees I owe my school because my loan didn't cover it so I'm paying in installments. T_T It really sucks because it led me to think about all of the debt that's piling on me and I don't believe I do anything special enough to get scholarships or anything from anyone but I'm starting to think I have to attempt the process even if I get no money.

but then there's the problem of getting recommendation letters....lol i hate life

If they're trying to talk to you, then don't go into loner mode! D: Talk back. You can do it; just force yourself a bit.


All it takes is 20 seconds of insane courage to do something amazing.

I'm going into college and I'm scared that my roommates will be the exact opposite of me and we won't get along.
