8 A.M. Classes Are Not As Bad As People Make Them Out To Be

Just get the classes out of the way.

8 A.M. Classes Are Not As Bad As People Make Them Out To Be

Picture it: your alarm going off at 6 or 7 in the morning and it is time to get ready for class. You dread the thought of having to walk across campus or getting in your car and drive to class but it has to be done. The next 15 weeks, you think to yourself, will not be fun.

Get those thoughts out of your head. An 8 a.m. class is not as bad as people make it out to be. For most people, they will be working at 8 in the morning for the rest of their careers. So why is it okay then but not okay in college?

I took an 8 a.m. class a couple of years ago, and I do not regret it. While I wasn't particularly interested in the course itself, it allowed me to get the class out of the way early in the morning so I could worry about other things.

Would you rather have an 8:00 a.m. or be in class non-stop for hours? People who decide to schedule later in the day often have back-to-back courses with no break in between. That can be exhausting.

There is nothing wrong with an 8:00 a.m. class. So what if you have to get up really early in the morning, do not stay up so late if that is a problem. I am also taking a night class this semester and I look forward to it.

People always tell others to never take an 8:00 a.m. because they themselves thought they would not survive an early morning class. Do not listen to those people. Everyone is different. Just because that person says that you should not take it does not mean you should listen.

Some people might thrive in early morning classes. Some people are early birds, some people are night owls. Do not listen to people who dictate your schedule for you (except your advisor).

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
