Syllabus week is a roller coaster of emotion. New school supplies, new classes, new professors; it can all be very overwhelming! So what better way to describe it than with the most dramatic show on television? If the characters of Grey's Anatomy were experiencing syllabus week along with you, I imagine this is how they might react.
When your professor e-mails your class before the first day, saying you might want to get an "early start" on the reading assignment.
When the only incentive to attend informational sessions is the free food.
Being more inclined to turn up on a school night because there isn't actual work yet.
When your professor hasn't posted the syllabus yet and you're worried about not being able to plan out your life.
Being bored af in class and suddenly rethinking your entire career choice.
When the bookstore cashier tells you your total and you're trying not to have a breakdown.
When you have no friends in any of your classes and can't find anyone to sit next to.
When your parents ask you, "How was your first day?"
Looking over the syllabus and already knowing that this class will ruin your life.
By the end of the week you're not sure how much longer you can keep it together.
But then you give yourself a little pep-talk and force yourself to think more positively.
And then you remember how smart and capable you are.
You've got this!
