Had my first day of classes today and I am already overwhelmed! The day wasn't horrible but it wasn't good either.
-One of my professors is requiring us to use a special program that is an extra cost to students but free for professors. That is alright but the program requires either a cell phone that texts or a laptop. "Everyone has a cell phone that texts," She said with certainty. Nope! Not everyone does! I have a laptop but looking at the screen for 2 hours is not idea for migraine sufferers. This program has to be used in class.
-I don't like my major and as a transfer student, it's kind of late to change it. It can be done though. It's Psychology and it's not for me! Just because you love an intro class does not mean you will enjoy the subject! Sometimes, you just don't know until you get into the higher level classes (and that's not possible at a community college.)
-The class sizes are massive. 100, 93, 300. That's the number of students in each of my classes. :O
-The college is on the quarter system. A quarter is 10 weeks. A Semester is around 5 months. All colleges should use the semester system. Nothing will ever change my mind. I hate quarters. It feels cramped.
The good thing is the campus is huge so you get plenty of exercise. There are lots of trees and a beautiful view of the mountains.
There is part of me that is just screaming "forget this" and another part that is saying "No, don't forget it!"
Too much stress=a bowl of ice cream at the end of the day. I did so well all day too! Oh well. There's nothing wrong with a little ice cream once in a while.
