Why Early Classes Are Better In College

They aren't as bad as they seem.

Why Early Classes Are Better In College

When college planning, the perfect schedule is a very important part of being successful. This could change your level of stress, daily mood, enjoyment, and bring satisfaction to your semester and self.

Most people try to stay away from getting those early morning classes. I know my first semester I thought I didn't want to have those early morning classes and tried to stay away from them. Then one semester I had to have an 8 a.m. class because that's the only time it was offered. I was so not looking forward to that. Then I had the class and it wasn't that bad honestly. It made me ready to start my day earlier and I was done with all of my classes by like 11 in the morning. Other people were just then starting their day and I was starting all the fun stuff for my day.

Some pros to having morning classes are you have more time during the day to do other things than going to class. You have more time to do homework but also hang out with friends. You will get used to going to bed and waking up earlier (I promise), which is good because you will get more sleep in the long run. Waking up earlier also helps because there will be days when you get to sleep in and having woken up so early the other mornings of the week the later mornings are just so much sweeter.

One good perk is that the early classes normally do not fill up, which means there will be empty seats and also more one-on-one time with the professor. This time with the professors is important because you are more likely to get better and more personalized help on assignments. No one ever tries too hard to get those 8 a.m.'s Waking up earlier will also help with your concentration because later in the day you are more tired and it is harder to focus.

Early morning classes also help you get prepared for when you graduate and have to get a full-time job. Most full-time jobs are like an 8-3 job, which means you have to go to bed earlier so you can wake up earlier and be able to have time to get ready and drink your coffee before you leave.

Naps are one of the best things about taking morning classes. You go back home after class and take one of the best naps of your life and guess what - when you wake up, it's still earlier in the day and you still have time to do homework or any other activities.

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.

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.
