Classes officially start tomorrow, but I don’t have to start until Thursday. The closer it gets to the start of the semester, the more I debate whether I want to drop a class. My advisor swears that I’ll be fine, but I’m feeling very apprehensive and it’s putting a damper on my school spirit.
As of now, I’ll be teaching two sections of Composition 101 and taking 10 credit hours. A lot of people have told me that it’s a lot, but it seems to be the norm here. I’m sure I could handle it. I’m not sure that I want to handle it though. (Yes, maybe I’m feeling lazy.)
Grad school just wasn’t the plan for me initially. Summer class wasn’t in the plan either. I’m feeling really burnt out after my summer classes too, so I guess I don’t want to overdo it. I guess I’m just worried that I’m being lazy and a bad grad student by wanting to drop a class. Or maybe I am just desperate to get out of taking Middle English Lit.
As of now, my schedule is alright.
Monday: Class 10-10:50; Class 6-8:50
Tuesday: Teach 9:30-10:50; Teach 11-12:20; Office Hours 2-3:20; Class 3:30-4:50; Class 5-7:50
Thursday: Teach 9:30-10:50; Teach 11-12:20; Office Hours 2-3:20; Class 3:30-4:50
It seems somewhat easy in writing (minus my hell-ish Tuesdays), but I’m afraid it’s going to be too much. In my defense, I am planning on tutoring and doing college prep activities at the middle/high school here on my days off. (Extra moolah is always welcome.)
Oh decisions, decisions…
I welcome any and all opinions on the subject.
