Why Syllabus Day Scares All College Students

"We've been waiting for you."

Why Syllabus Day Scares All College Students
The Odyssey Online

When it comes to syllabus day, it can go one or two ways. It can either go fantastic, or it can go "Why did I sign up for this class?". It went both ways for me on the first day of classes. The first day was a Tuesday so I had only two classes. My first class went amazingly. I loved the professor as soon as I met her, which is really rare as college professors are usually hit or miss. Her class will be difficult, but I think her sense of humor and overall demeanor will make the class a lot more bearable than with another teacher.

My second class of the day came after lunch, so I was already ready for a nap. I walked into the class, and was ready for it to be over with. Now, I'm typically a pretty eager learner but there was something telling me that something wasn't right when I walked in. As soon as I walked in, two girls turned and looked at me and said, "Hello. We've been waiting." I turned back and said hello and sat down. To be honest, I was quite terrified when this happened as it slightly reminded me of The Shining. So, I sat at my desk, refusing to make eye contact with that entire side of the classroom.

Here are my thoughts as this class droned on:

Why am I in here?

Out of all of the sections of this class, I picked the creepiest one.

Do I dare look over there?

Oh no, I almost made eye contact.

Where's the professor? I need a saving grace!

Then, the professor walks in. The classroom is dead silent. You could hear a pen drop. As I sat there waiting for the class to begin and for us to go over the syllabus, it feels like someone is staring at me. I sit there, trying to not give into the will to look. I look over at the girls, and they turn their heads quickly to the professor. So, naturally I turn my head too.

Nothing happened after that for the rest of the class. The only other terrifying event was that the professor gave a lecture on Syllabus Day. *sigh* And it was after I walked out of the classroom that I pulled out my phone and dropped the class and picked up another section. Hopefully a less creepy section.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.
