8 AM Classes

I have managed to go my entire college career without ever having to take an 8 AM class… until now. Every Tuesday and Thursday I have to head to school for class at 8, and it’s a struggle. It’s not that I’m not an early riser, but going to work is different then going to class at 8 o’clock in the morning. Going to class requires you to do a lot of intellectual thinking, especially if it’s a difficult one. The class that I have an 8 AM is A Women’s and Gender Studies seminar. It is definitely a very interesting class, but it takes at least 15 to 20 minutes for me to get really into it. We discuss all sorts of things like what femininity and masculinity is, violence between partners, and other social issues that are really problematic in the world. Some of the conversations that we have are hard, but it’s necessary for people to talk about these issues in order to bring to promote change. I’m hoping that as the semester goes on I am able to get into a better schedule and can be ready to go for the class right when it starts. It doesn’t help that I have 200 more minutes of class throughout the rest of my day as well. Good thing coffee exists, right?!
