Best Email Ever? Class Canceled

Every morning I wake up and immediately check my email. Literally, it’s the first thing I do. Why? Because there is always a shred of hope in me that one of my professors canceled their class for the day. For some, it is a common occurrence. For me, not so much (sad face). In some ways I am glad that class isn’t canceled a lot, because I am still paying the same amount of money whether I go to class or not. However, getting the email relieving me from the obligation to go to class is wonderful. It has happened to me twice this week. Well, actually, one class was scheduled to not meet and work on group projects instead, but still, I didn’t have to go and sit in class for almost 2 hours, and it felt great! Granted, I used all of that time to work on assignments and projects rather than sleep or watch Netflix like I wish I would have, but that’s okay. It seems like “Finals Week” is actually three weeks. I remember in high school when our finals would just be a paper, or regular test, or something else. It was never really cumulative finals. Well, in college it all changes. Test, papers, and projects are all fair game. One or all three. In fact, several of my classes are requiring us to do a paper, a presentation, and then a final test. It is a lot to prepare for, and I see a lot of my fellow classmates in the same boat, so I try not to complain. I have to remind myself how fortunate I am to be having these struggles, some people do not get the opportunity to even attend college, so I am one lucky girl that I do. Of course, not everyone is comforted by this fact, but nonetheless, it’s true!
