Online Classes Require More Discipline Than I Thought

But at the end of the semester, it will all be worth it.

When I found out that classes were going online for the rest of the semester, I was sad and extremely nervous. I was sad because my freshman year of college ended a little earlier than expected (thanks COVID-19), and I was nervous because doing strictly online classes for the next month was going to be a challenge.

The day that online classes started, I spent a collective total of 10 hours doing school work. I completely underestimated how much time and effort were going to go into getting all my work done. That day, I realized that doing online classes was going to take a lot of discipline if I wanted to successfully complete all of my assignments.

I am a huge procrastinator and Netflix watcher, so forcing myself to get my work done every day is very challenging. Every night, I make a to-do list of what needs to be completed the next day, starting with the things that, with no question, have to be done. To make it even easier, I also try to do work for classes that I would have gone to that day if classes were still in-person.

There are days where I barely do anything, and then there are days where I grind and do work non-stop. It is a little harder with everything being online because it is all on you to make sure that you get assignments done by the due date. But at the end of the semester, it will all be worth it.

If you're in the same boat as me, keep going, you got this.

I have been wearing glasses since I was seven years old. When I was young, I loved wearing my glasses. Noticing each individual leaf on a tree or the distinct smile lines on my mother's face was an absolute dream. Now I prefer to take off my glasses at times, despite being considered legally blind. Twinkle lights glow brighter when blurred. It is easier to ignore the graying hairs when viewed in a softer light. All in all, the famous cliche "ignorance is bliss" couldn't be truer.

Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.
