My first day of college!

So I had a very good first day of college. I am going to love it I think! There is a ton of work to do, a ton of assignments, but I think it is going to be a great course. I know I am going to learn so much. I will definitely come out knowing way more than I know now about mental illnesses, policy surrounding them, services which are available, etc. There are four modules to my course. Two before the summer, and two after it. We will work now from jan until may. Then there will be a summer break from June to September, and then we’ll work through until next January again. The lecturer said that the first module has the most assignments, there are 3 of them to do for that module. We have to review and summarise an article, do a presentation, and do a learning log. There are others for the other modules, like group projects, a visit to a mental health organisation, more presentations, etc. It sounds good, but like it will be a lot of work. I’ll definitely be busy thats a sure thing! I like that though. I like being busy. Today was basically just an introduction, an overview of the course, assignments, how to use blackboard etc. I found it helpful to go through everything. There are 25 students in my class. I already know a few of them as we’ve done courses together in the past. I am feeling good overall though about this. I think it will be fun and I am glad I signed up for it.

  1. Fantastic! I’ve loved *almost* every course I’ve taken in college. I was offended by the instructor the first day of speech 101. I was standing talking to another student, and she came over and said, “I’ve got news for you. Women are *not* impressed when they see a man with his hands in his pockets.” That’s actually a thing? I’d never heard it before or since. I didn’t like that course. I really loved English 101. I got to write all sort of things. We didn’t cover fiction though, I’m really sub-par in fiction. I’m sure nothing like that will ever happen to you, and you’ll love college.
