    Courtney's Bio:
    I'm an Elementary Education major at CSS. I also plan to minor in Spanish. Having done PSEO, I came to CSS with more than 60 credits. I'm part of Volunteers Involved Through Action (VITA), Students Today Leaders Forever (STLF), and other clubs! Dance has been part of my life for 10 years, and now I'm trying to fit it into my schedule again. I love spending time watching Supernatural and Once Upon a Time, and reading Harry Potter and other great books. I live in a suite with 3 other girls, and we are always finding something fun to do around campus!

Being Sick & Trying to Keep Up

So I’m still feeling a bit off and sluggish since Friday. But today I had to keep chugging on. I explained to my first professor about my late assignments, only to realize I forgot another assignment as well. She really understood because I had been sick and was out-of-state, so she simply asked me, “what can I do to help you succeed?” It was so awesome that she was so understanding. It made me feel a lot less pressure. I explained to her that I do have a plan to step up my game. I’ll be cutting Thursday work study time out, so even though I’ll be losing 5 hours of work, at least I’ll be surviving school. My Tuesdays and Thursdays will be dedicated to her field experience class, her homework, and my other homework. I also have to commit more time to the PIFT with it coming up. Apparently we were supposed to have the whole trip planned before this past weekend conference, but no one had told us. So now I have 2 weeks to get all of that in order. ¬†Plus I have to finish my painting for my Jamaica trip. This is all so hard, trying to get a balance of everything, plus self-care and chores like laundry and dishes. I’m really thankful though that people are understanding of what’s going on and are cutting me the little bit of slack I need to catch up.
