It’s surprising that no matter how many times you’ve been through your first week of classes, you still get the nerves, fret about what you’re going to wear (at least I do) and hope you don’t end up in a physics class when you should be in an art class. Luckily, I crossed all of the T’s and counted my steps correctly enough, over and over, so that I didn’t break my first day luck streak and end up in the wrong class.
In honor of the first day back, here are…
Seven thoughts you’ll have during your first week back on campus
1.) You know what kind of semester it will be when the professor tells you to bring coffee to class as if it’s a required class material.
2.) You wonder what the squirrels have been up to while you were gone. You might even take the time to smile and wave at the first one you see.
3.) You walk into a class for the first time and recognize a few lab partners from last semester. You know it will be either a magical reunion or an extremely awkward semester…depending on how fast you can remember their names.
4.) You realize that your Baseline/Flexline has been granted another life almost overnight. Now you can buy muffins and coffee like they’re going out of style and not worry about it… for a while at least.
5.) For the really organized people: you’re excited about your fresh notebooks, planners and calendars and you feel like you can conquer the world with them.
6.) For the not-so-organized people: you have your syllabi, you know when your finals are. The rest will work itself out.
7.) You’re excited to be back at UW-Stout with friends, start new classes and accomplish new goals… goals like binge-watching all seven seasons of Parks and Rec.
