Ok, so the first week back to classes is over. WINNING! 🙂 We got through all the uncomfortable feelings and the meeting new people and professors. The Professor I have this quarter for my dreaded Statistics is actually quite amusing and I think I am actually going to get through this class easier than I thought. He reminds me of Einstein with that statistician look. (See Below). LOL. In my opinion having a great Professor can make all the difference in the world. As older students, we cannot handle people talking down to us or like we are children. Think about it, most University Professors are used to students who are between 17 & 25. Now there is a segment of
students returning to college who have life experiences, raised families and have been successful in their careers.
A I don’t know about you but I always feel nervous when I enter a new situation. I make sure that I am there early and I now sit at the front of the class. I learned in previous math classes that I took on campus that even though it is college, the people who really do not care sit in the back and play on the computers or chat to one another. I cannot afford that. I take my education very seriously ( I mean afterall you are paying a lot of money, right?)
Now the weekend is here and it is homework and study time. The way I usually handle it is I allow myself to sleep in a little longer, usually to 8 am – WOW that’s late huh?! 🙂 Then I drink a much-needed cup of coffee and read or listen to the news. Take a shower and then get my books together and go to my quiet place (right now it’s my room because my 3-year-old granddaughter id FULL OF ENERGY!) and I begin with my work. Right now I only have my final class so I won’t have to spend the entire weekend studying. If I pace myself, I will be done between 4-6 hours and then it’s PLAY TIME! 🙂
Remember to not overwhelm yourself, remember to breathe and EAT. All of this is manageable and you will be successful. Have faith in yourself and remember to smile! 🙂
