5 Things I'm Going To Miss About Online Classes

As many universities start to prepare for their fall semesters, they've begun to make announcements about what students can expect when fall semester does roll around. At my university, a majority of the classes and events will go back to being held in-person with some online classes and restrictions in place. While it's incredibly exciting to go back to a place of normalcy and to have the opportunity to experience in-person classes again, it can be a little tricky after adjusting to an entirely online schedule for over the past year. So while I am excited to return back to a normal state of classes, here are a few things that I am going to miss about online classes after we return to face-to-face classes in the fall.

1. Not needing to leave my bed to go to class

While most days I chose to actually get out of bed to attend my classes, I still have the option which is incredibly nice. It won't be the same when I am forced to get out of bed.

2. Not being able to wear my pajamas to class

Now maybe you don't wear your pajamas to class but it's still an option. Even if you don't go full out in your pajamas, it's likely that you still don't wear what you'd want to wear to an in-person class.

3. Not being able to listen to my online lectures in 2x speed

My favorite thing about online lectures is being able to listen to them in 2x speed. There's nothing better than being able to knock out your hour long lecture in half the time. Now I'm just not sure how I'm going to feel not being able to do that.

4. The inability to multitask during classes

Let's be honest, for the last year we've been treating our classes like podcasts we could just listen to. Seriously, think about the last time you sat down for the class and didn't do anything else during that time.

5. Open-note tests

I don't think this one really requires much explanation. Since going to online classes, I've been really lucky that all of my professors have made my tests open-note and I know that won't be the case once we go back to in-person classes.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
