17 Things That Happen In Smaller Classes

17 Things That Happen In Smaller Classes

There is something different about being in smaller classes

As a freshman in my first semester of college I have had a wide range of classes - from really big to really small. Currently, my smallest class is 8 people and here are the 17 things so far that I have experienced in my class of 8 that most people in small classes experience as well.

1. First things first… there are a lot of awkward silences (in the beginning).

2. Your professor actually acknowledges you.

3. You will get a lot of attention.

4. You will probably pay a lot more attention since your professor is literally watching for almost every second of the class.

5. But hey you learn more. Yay!

6. Down side: your professor does know whether or not you do your homework.

7. You will actually talk to the people sitting next to you (unlike bigger in classes).

8. So eventually you will learn your classmates’ names pretty quickly.

9. Sometimes you might end up becoming great friends with some of them too.

10. Let's face it - in that class it is going to be to easier to form a study group. I mean the whole class could study together.

11. As the year goes on there is a point you become closer to your professor and learn more about them.

12. Because you know your professor more personally it’s a lot easier to get off topic in class.

13. You learn about your professor’s personal life and have seen at least a photo of their kids or pets.

14. If you are really lucky you end up in a group chat with your professor. Talk about getting help with your homework.

15. You might even be invited to go over to your professor’s house for dinner.

16. There is a special bond in that class.

17. But when the semester ends you will always remember the bond you guys shared.

10 Shows Netflix Should Have Acquired INSTEAD of Re-newing 'Friends' For $100 Million

Could $100 Million BE anymore of an overspend?


Netflix broke everyone's heart and then stitched them back together within a matter of 12 hours the other day.

How does one do that you may wonder. Well they start by announcing that as of January 1st, 2019 'Friends' will no longer be available to stream. This then caused an uproar from the ones who watch 'Friends' at least once a day, myself including. Because of this giant up roar, with some threats to leave Netflix all together, they announced that 'Friends' will still be available for all of 2019. So after they renewed our hope in life, they released that it cost them $100 million.

$100 million is a lot of money, money that could be spent on variety of different shows.

For The Grandparents You Lost Before You Were Ready, Because You Never Can Be

We weren't ready and there is so much I wish I could tell you.


You were taken far too soon. It's not fair, I didn't have you for long enough. Why do the bad things happen to the good people?

It's been nine years and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of you. When you left, I had to be strong for mom because she had to take care of everything. But when it was all said and done, I was curled up in the closet crying.

It's been nine years and you've missed so much. You didn't get to see me baptized, start cheerleading, graduate high school, get my first job, or have my first real boyfriend. It hurts to know you won't see me graduate college, get married, or have kids. But, I know you are watching over from Heaven. I can always feel your presence.

It scares me because Kylie was only 6 when you left us. I worry about what she remembers. I'm scared because I can barely remember your voices. But I am thankful because I remember grandpa's love for hats, grandma's love for scrabble, and a shared love of card games. I remember big Christmases, the mess of making chicken and dumplings, running down the hall away from the tickle monster, and most of all, I remember the love you showed me. Your love was overwhelming, safe, and unfaltering.

To you Grandpa and Grandma, Ray and Joy, I miss you, I love you, I hope I do you proud. I will show the love you gave me to as many people as I can. Your memory will live on through the stories we tell and you will never be forgotten.

I'll give mom a hug and kiss for you. I know you'd give us all one. Keep watching over, OK? I love you.
