7 Thoughts You've Had While Taking A Summer Course

If you've ever taken a summer course you know how crummy it feels when you just want to go swimming and tan but you have an exam tomorrow. So much for summer vacation when you have two papers and tons of homework.

1. How am I taking a whole course in only five weeks?

How on earth can they fit an entire semester's worth of work in only a few weeks?! It doesn't seem possible.

2. Wow! It's gorgeous outside too bad I have school work...

Remember when you were little and summer meant no more school or books? Not anymore!

3. Will I ever get a vacation?

Yeah, no, you probably won't. Just accept it.

4. So much for a social life when I have school work and work work.

The demands are endless! So much for friends and family or relaxing!

5. At least I'm getting ahead!

You tell yourself that as you fake smile and hope that this class is totally worth the stress of a nonrelaxing summer.

6. Okay, time to lock myself in my room like in high school

This can literally feel like high school part two. You lock yourself in your room doing work and having your parents constantly nag you about getting it done.

7. But the beach is calling my name...

Oh well! I'll try again in the fall. Time to get that nice summer tan.

I have always heard sayings like "Why study art? Why not Engineering, Science or Commerce?", "Art won't get you anywhere," "Art is useless," "You won't get a proper job" etc. I have also heard of situations of the school board planning to cut arts in schools, thinking that students won't do well in their education.

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times.

That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.
