Well my super long winter break is officially almost over 🙁 In 24 hours I will be sitting in my second class of winter semester. Plus 3 part time jobs (whhhyyyyyyyy) plus regular life to keep up on.
This semester is WAY more time intensive (practicum) and I only had one of these three jobs last semester. I ran around today grocery shopping and cleaning and preparing for my own personal hell for the next three months.
So tell me about your crazy schedules and how you survive! I know I am so not the only one preparing to suffer 😉
Ready…set… Exhausted already!

@lalalyanne: 3 part time jobs? Omg 🙁 I go back tomorrow as well. What year are you? I’m a senior in my final semester and I’ll be working 24 hours a week. Thankfully I work on campus tho so hopefully my 4 classes won’t be too bad!

I go back on Jan 13th and I thought that was WAY too early. Most colleges in our area start on Jan. 21st or later. I am dreading those early morning wake-ups. Oh yeah, and I am the professor! LOL

Mine isn’t going to be TERRIBLE next semester, but still…
I’ll be in school from 9:30-3:30 Tuesday and Thursday. I’ll be going between my two jobs every other day of the week! Last semester it was worse. Had to be in school 11-7! I don’t think I start again until January 20th though.

I start on Wednesday and I’m totally not ready! That’s mainly because I’m sick and have no energy to do anything besides sit on the couch. I’m hoping my semester won’t be too bad…just taking 15 hours and I’ll be working probably about 15 hours a week plus 3 hours of tutoring. The only thing I’m really worried about is that I’m diving into my second major this semester – 3 of my classes are for my second major and I’ve never taken more than 1 per semester for this major before. It might be a bit of a shock to be completely switching tracks! My daily schedule should be about 9-5 which I love – last semester I was on campus every Tuesday from 8-8 and from Thursday from 8-6:30. Not a fan of that.
I’m entering my second to last semester, so this is my last spring semester!

Wow I still have 2 more full weeks of break left! I can’t wait to start my last semester of undergrad though! I finished my practicum last semester so I just have 4 classes this semester and working at the daycare everyday. I actually enjoy being busy, I just feel so much more productive. The worst part about this semster is being away from FI all semester and putting the finishing touches on the wedding hundreds of miles away since the wedding is right after graduation!!

@lalalyanne: I start tomorrow too. I just spent the day grocery shopping and getting things I needed too. Not super excited about it, But I’m not as busy as you!
I’m just tired from being pregnant and don’t feel like walking all over/lugging books around. Then I’m due Feb 22 so I’ll have the baby then be back in classes for 3 weeks. >:(

@PixelMePretty: oi vey. I wish you luck! That’s ultimate schedule filling 😉
@prettyinpink11: haha this is year one. It’s a one year certificate but I’m thinking of keeping on and getting a diploma or degree.. Crazy thoughts for me!

I am going back tomorrow too…maybe. We have about 8 inches of snow here, and looking to get hit with another 10-12 tonight (just for a little visual, we have an above ground pool and the snow is higher then that right now).
Anyways, I have classes Monday to Thursday and also hold 3 jobs. It’s tough, but this is my last semester. I’ll be out in the real world in 15 weeks!

@Scorpio88: What is up with the crazy weather back east this year? It has been absolutely nuts! I know you guys usually get some weird stuff but between the ice storms and now this?? My Grandma lives in Ontario and I hope she’s not too buried in snow right now!!
It snowed a few times before Christmas here but it’s been like around zero to right above freezing for the last week or so. Everything started melting and it’s looking brown out there already and then today: Bam. Return to the cold snap. I could have stood in the shower ALL day. It is SO cold outside.
I kinda wish it would snow a foot so we could have a snow day today!
2 hours until I will be sitting IN class. Le sigh!

I have 2 part time jobs and started 3 classes today. They’re online, but still take a good chunk of time. I have a 20 page paper (and 8 papers total) this semester. At least I know if I can get throught this the rest of my degree should be much easier

I have 5 classes and a full time job. I think what sucks the most is that I work all day and then have to go straight to school and my classes are back-to-back so I don’t have any time to eat or anything. It’s a long day! My lunch break at work is at 11am and then I don’t get out of school until 9:45. Last semester I ate least had an hour in between classes so I had time to run to the library and print things, get something to eat, and catch up on reading. Now on Mondays and Wednesdays it’s all I can do to get to class on time because they’re so far apart, it’s physically impossible to get there in 5 minutes! And they’re held in computer labs on those days, so I can’t eat! I’m going to end up buying junky things to scarf down on the walk over.
