Summer classes. You can't deny the appeal. They're usually easier, cheaper, and after taking five or six classes in one semester, you think taking one or two in the summer will work better with your schedule. Every college kid faces this dilemma at one point or another, and here are the seven stages of taking a summer class.
1. Trying to decide
Do I really want to take a summer class? Can I afford to take this? Is there a class I want to take?
2. Picking the right class
"Okay, this one sounds easy, AND it gives me the credits I need, sounds perfect!"
3. The first day of class
You wake up excited, thinking these next few weeks will fly by and you'll be a few credits closer to your degree.
4. Slight regrets
As soon as your professor starts going over the syllabus, you realize the class may not be as easy as everybody said it would be.
5. Even more regrets
Wait... I have to buy a textbook?? And all the exams are in essay format??? Oh no.
6. Working hard... or hardly working?
You commit to the class, even with all of the assignments, and push yourself as hard as you can for those next two to five weeks.
7. Crossing the finish line
Whether you're thriving, or barely surviving, you finally finished your summer class(es) and now you can enjoy the rest of your break!
