Scheduling Struggle

How can fitting in 5 classes be so difficult?

Scheduling Struggle
Caitlyn Conner

In the last two months, I have not encountered anything worse than scheduling. Being a freshman, I get to register last so every day for the last week I have logged on and looked at my class shopping cart as my classes fill up. And even as I'm writing this, I am sitting in my lounge with six other people who are all stressing out and screaming because of schedules.

Although this is extremely stressful, there are a few things I have found helpful so you don't completely go insane.

1. Have back-ups.

2. Have back-ups for your back-ups.

3. Have a group of people around you that can help keep you calm.

4. Find the one friend in your friend group who is weirdly good at making schedules.

For my friend group, I'm that person that's unusually good at creating schedules. Sitting down and looking at list of classes is probably the most overwhelming experience there could be. But somehow sitting with other people makes it better. So breathe, suck it up and take the dumb gen eds.

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
