The first week of classes is a whirlwind of so many different things. You’re still settling into your dorm, and you’re definitely still struggling to get out of your terrible summer sleep schedule.
If you’re a freshman, you’re probably still recovering from the chaos that is welcome week. You’re an odd mix of dreading going to class and being excited about your new classes.
You’re most certainly not emotionally prepared to get up, get ready, and go to class in the mornings. You might even still be missing home, or at least your dog, a little bit. But whether we like it or not, classes have to start, and it’s just something we have to deal with.
1. Picking out that perfect “first day of classes” outfit.
2. When somebody rudely reminds you that you have class in the morning.
How dare your roommate remind you that you’re gonna have to drag yourself out of bed and to class in the morning? Does she even realize how hurtful that is to your very fragile emotional state?
3. That first look at your syllabus freaks you out just a bit.
4. Finally getting the hang of where your classes are is the best feeling.
Sure, you might have gotten lost about thirty (or fifty) times before this moment, but at least you have it all figured out now.
5. When you see a cute guy in one of your classes.
You’ll probably never actually introduce yourself to him, but it’s still nice to know he’s there. Just in case.
