The Night Before the First Day of School

No matter how old I get, or how many times I’ve gone through it, I will never not have jitters the night before the first day of school. I am taking all new classes, will be on the receiving end of new expectations, and, most importantly, it is my last first day of school… possibly ever. Tomorrow, I have to sit in 300 minutes of class, and work a few hours. Tuesdays and Thursdays are by far my longest days, but Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays make up for it because I only have one class on those days. The first week is usually referred to as “Syllabus Week,” where professors go through their syllabus and talk about the semester, but I have never really had a class where we don’t do anything that first week. My prediction is that all of my classes will assign at least some type of reading for the next session. I also will have to start thinking about what I want to put together for my senior portfolio. I always like to touch base with my advisor early on in the semester, too, just to make sure that I have everything set in order. Unfortunately, my advisor is on sabbatical this year, so I will have a different one. I am so excited for everything that is to come with the school year, but I know it will be a lot of work, and a lot of late nights. I hope everyone has a great first day of school; the year always goes by really fast!
