    A couple things
    I threw my back out over the weekend. I was lucky we had off Monday so I could lay in bed and recover. I thought I was recovered enough to attend today
    After driving an hour (sitting in car), walking across campus, and sitting in class...my teacher never showed up. I stayed with some other kids until 30 min in and then we just left.
    My back was already starting to hurt from the above.
    Also, all I had in my other classes was an open book quiz in my 3:30 class. My book hasn’t come into the book store yet so I was like why wait for 3 hours to fail a quiz when my back is already hurting soo basically I went home early. I feel like I drove an hour away for nothing. Ugh.

    Also I’m sorry @Dog with a Blog thats so disappointing! Honest mistake tho, not a dumbass.

    Haha I had to do a similar thing for a Spanish class once. I actually looked forward to it though because something would always go wrong, like issues with people's volume being way too loud, people talking over one another, all in terrible broken Spanish. It was hilarious

    Lol this pretty much describes my experience exactly. There was a lot of the teacher going, “can you please turn off your microphones.....please turn off your microphones” haha.

    Omg, this professor just went over the syllabus two class sessions in a row. Why am I paying for this

    Edit: This is a study of New York class. So far we've discussed the Big Bang, creation of Earth and Pangea. What the hell is this class

    Edit 2: In the next class and we are spending a half hour on how to structure an essay. I'm a senior. What is this

    Lol I dropped my Italian class. Kinda wish I had done it before I dropped $125 on the book/online code but it is just too much stress for a class I don’t need to take and I’m not a fan of the online format ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I just need any 1 unit class so next semester I’ll proably take archery or something

    That’s honestly always been a strong desire of mine but I get really anxious at the thought of doing that in front of people

    I felt a similar anxiety when I took intro to acting, but quickly realized that no one actually took themselves or any one else too seriously and it quickly became one of my favorite classes in college. Everyone in the class became pretty close and it definitely helped me deal with some of my social anxiety. I would definitely recommend it and would say that the thought of standing in front of people and acting is a lot worse than actually doing it.

    The thing is, there is nothing I would like more than to perform in from of people. Whether it’s acting or playing music, I’ve always felt a strong passion to do something like that. But then when push comes to shove I get hella nervous and back out. I’ve done a few open mics but I was so nauseous for like an hour before I went on lol

    I'm Emotional, I Hug the Block

    I had no idea how turn my shitty topic into a thesis proposal, when suddenly the head of the program approached me with a new thesis topic that is basically ready to go, the results of which will be part of an article that will be published in an academic journal, with me included as one of the authors.

    What. Finally something fucking works out :crylaugh:

    This poetry class is proving to be fairly challenging. I’ve written song lyrics before but that’s such a different process. I can just do what sounds right coming off the tongue, not really worrying about what’s actually being said. With this, I find it to be a lot more calculative and I’m worrying too much about whether or not it’s perfect. I prolly wouldn’t stress about it too much were it not for the fact that we have to read everything in front of the class

    had my first sociology test. It was half stuff taken from the textbook and half stuff from lecture. I didn’t read the book at all besides skimming so that sucked.

    I got a 66% and I felt like a failure but the class average was a 70% lol.

    luckily I now know what to study so hopefully I can make that the one exam he drops.
