Hello There

All right, guys, I'm gonna tell you a little bit about my schedule it. As you might know, I have mentioned in my previous videos. I am a senior. So with that comes the priority with picking classes and all that. So this year, I'm actually on ly taking class in person, two days a week? Uh, yeah, I know that sounds terrifying and crazy and so threatening, but I'm actually super busy here. I'll show you my schedule here. If you don't believe me, Let me see if you guys could see that. So back to my schedule. Sorry, It's a little bumpy. Be a two days a week, but the reason I have this is because I am taking three classes in person and then another three online. So I'm actually taking eighteen credit hours, and the max is nineteen. I'm actually having a really big workload this semester. And then when I'm not doing my online classes during those days, I have all I'm either involved with. All my clubs at a man are my sorority or my job, so I'm definitely super super super busy. But, yeah, it's just like all about time management in college. You're definitely not in class as much as you are in high school. I know I talked about that briefly and other videos, but it's all about managing your time and figuring out what works for you. I know some people are so bad with online classes, and it doesn't work for them. But for me personally, I have a learning disability. So sometimes it's hard for me to pay attention and lecture, so is actually kind of beneficial for me, too. You know, we have an online class so I can go at my own pace. Whether, then, feeling rushed tryingto juts out everything My notebook during lecture. So it's been pretty beneficial for me. And it's just nice for me to make my own schedule that way. So I can work and balance all my other extracurriculars. Excusing, Yeah, I'm senior years. Definitely not as traditional as my other schedules have been. Traditionally, they've been Monday through Thursday, all in class. But, yeah, I tried this out this year and I'm Hey, guys, as walking past my sorority house, coming back on the school social X.
