Information Overload

Well, I survived the first day of classes---my last first day of my undergrad career.  How weird is that?  And I made the mistake of scheduling all of my classes for Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, with the majority of those classes being only Monday-Wednesday classes, which means they're half again as long as Monday-Wednesday-Friday classes.  Not that I had much choice---there was only one class that I could have moved to a Tuesday-Thursday slot, and that wouldn't have made much difference to my overall stress levels on Mondays and Wednesdays.  But all choice aside, the fact of the matter is that I got a double whammy yesterday, because I had to go to every single one of my classes in one day instead of half one day and half the other.  So let's just say that there are two words to describe my mindset by the end of the day: information overload.

Thankfully I went to the temple this morning (which always helps with any problem), and because I don't have any classes today, I've been able to kind of re-group and get things organized so I won't go completely insane this semester.  A word to the wise: don't ever schedule all of your classes for two days of the week unless you have a very good reason for doing so.  Or, at least, if you do...don't pay too much attention the first day of class.  :)

  1. Then there's me. I do everything I can to get all my classes on two days -- makes my work schedule SO much better. Information overload, sure, but it's worth it to me.

    Of course this semester I only have 1 of 4 classes at the school -- the rest are online. So that should be interesting.
