Hello February!

21163d3wlkpi6ng[1]

It’s finally here. The end of January, the beginning of February and the start of another semester of classes (unless you’re one of the unlucky few who was stuck with a term in January). I was always excited to get back to classes. Maybe I just wanted the opportunity to put my new resolutions into practice. The break, as relaxing as it always was, is long. My family, as much as I love them, would be getting on my nerves just about now, and I couldn’t wait to get away from my … [Read more...]

Those Difficult Classes: Dropping Linguistics

Linguistics was a requirement. A course, which, despite my pleas, my advisor insisted I needed to take. It was also a difficult class to get into. There were two sections Ling101 and Ling102. My friends and classmates recommended that I register for 102. "It's an easy class," they assured me. But 102 was only offered once every semester. To get in you had to be the first person to register for classes, and I am not an early riser. So, despite my reluctance, I wound up in the afternoon … [Read more...]

The Chronically Late Student

waking up for class

Every once in a while it’s okay to be a few minutes late for class. Most professors allow a 5-minute cushion for students to arrive, and they don’t mind if you slip in quietly. But it is not okay to be the student who is perpetually late. The student who arrives 10 minutes after class started every single day. That’s an annoying trait that your professor is not going to forget and your classmates will not appreciate. I know it’s hard to get out of bed in time for your 10 AM class, … [Read more...]

The Perfect Schedule

There is no such thing as a perfect schedule, especially a universal one. Every individual has their own ideas about the best time to sit through a lecture and the best time to study. Honestly, experience is the only way to figure out what’s right for you, but here my thoughts just in case. Morning Classes I am not a morning person. I can barely crawl out of bed, even after my alarm has gone off fifteen times.So any class that begins before 11:00 AM is a class that I am not going to be … [Read more...]
