We spend days working on our perfect schedule, only for our dreams to be crushed at 12:01.

Thoughts We All Have While Scheduling
Josey Wheeler

It's that time of year to start making your schedule for the next semester. You spend hours, days, weeks even, trying to come up with your perfect schedule (that does not involve Friday classes). Only for your dreams to get crushed by the time you schedule at 12:01.

It all starts when you get the dreaded e-mail telling you it's time to meet with your advisor:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F01%2F636136153691337258319398224_200_s.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=594&h=8430770f55e39b42a3a2b19b66cb32341627a921e2b414ce9aff86239c1378ba&size=980x&c=2027952533 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F01%252F636136153691337258319398224_200_s.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D594%26h%3D8430770f55e39b42a3a2b19b66cb32341627a921e2b414ce9aff86239c1378ba%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2027952533%22%7D" expand=1]

And they make you think you are on track to graduate:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F01%2F6361361598285564741431267458_tumblr_inline_mt0jim8F231qz4rgp.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=337&h=f74a5cdc1285cb09b9376345ca5c95f70da7809baf69d6e5c4e370533b451a9b&size=980x&c=1558691984 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F01%252F6361361598285564741431267458_tumblr_inline_mt0jim8F231qz4rgp.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D337%26h%3Df74a5cdc1285cb09b9376345ca5c95f70da7809baf69d6e5c4e370533b451a9b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1558691984%22%7D" expand=1]

Then you take hours to create your perfect schedule (without Friday classes):

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F01%2F6361361547140950802014107103_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=621&h=bbd29163365d41c3e8461730a81043284f647d02d83ea7285b5d047a4d182119&size=980x&c=3745982220 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F01%252F6361361547140950802014107103_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D621%26h%3Dbbd29163365d41c3e8461730a81043284f647d02d83ea7285b5d047a4d182119%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3745982220%22%7D" expand=1]

And you stay up until midnight to make sure you get your perfect schedule:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F01%2F636136161156573511-1351025796_tenor.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=411&h=0d6a941f220b36ad0226bbf19f54ab81b5879c747dd318fad056d4ca55830c55&size=980x&c=323098099 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F01%252F636136161156573511-1351025796_tenor.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D411%26h%3D0d6a941f220b36ad0226bbf19f54ab81b5879c747dd318fad056d4ca55830c55%26size%3D980x%26c%3D323098099%22%7D" expand=1]

Only to get locked out of 3 of your 5 classes:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F01%2F6361361562034490252068834113_giphy-1.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=1017&h=1137ff25f5d9693c0b82a2994d9d5983533039e8ebec517fadbc99c9f06ed5cb&size=980x&c=1262650615 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F01%252F6361361562034490252068834113_giphy-1.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D1017%26h%3D1137ff25f5d9693c0b82a2994d9d5983533039e8ebec517fadbc99c9f06ed5cb%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1262650615%22%7D" expand=1]

Then you have 15 minutes to make a whole new schedule before you get locked out of your classes again:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F01%2F636136163534697695776783858_gifs%252F1399482729819-nthgt9wbm1oo5hfr-e50db1cc597e6436ed87d2c31eb52571%252Fblob.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=812&h=a9164a6084971945b297425e1eef952c00e393a147c0706a9c232137683cee8c&size=980x&c=2266185815 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F01%252F636136163534697695776783858_gifs%25252F1399482729819-nthgt9wbm1oo5hfr-e50db1cc597e6436ed87d2c31eb52571%25252Fblob.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D812%26h%3Da9164a6084971945b297425e1eef952c00e393a147c0706a9c232137683cee8c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2266185815%22%7D" expand=1]

You finally make your schedule:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F01%2F636136165622517531355792889_rbZYW.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=393&h=7d33de7528f8fb83ceacd8c2c0f20639c3f89238b65e23f01d2a544edd30d5fc&size=980x&c=3714281422 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F01%252F636136165622517531355792889_rbZYW.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D393%26h%3D7d33de7528f8fb83ceacd8c2c0f20639c3f89238b65e23f01d2a544edd30d5fc%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3714281422%22%7D" expand=1]

Only to realize you have to do it all again next semester:
