Bye Bye Summer Classes!!!

Bye Bye Summer Classes!!!

Whatsupppp everyone and happy Tuesday! I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned how ecstatic I am to be done with my summer classes. I haven’t even bid them farewell with a BYE FELICIA, so it only seems appropriate to close the chapter of my scholarly summer with this post! Let’s do it:

To my summer classes: BYE FELICIA! You won’t be missed!!! Okay, okay that was kind of harsh and I can’t believe I’m saying this – but I actually really enjoyed my summer classes. If you recall, I took Sociology, Social Psychology, and a math course for ten precious summer time weeks. I learned so much from my Soc. and Soc. Psy. classes…not so much in my math class – but what can you do? 😉 The classes that I did like inspired me to consider a Psychology degree after my Associates so that gives me a lot to think about as far as my future goes! I ended both my Soc. and Soc. Psy. courses with a solid ninety-seven percent and because I’m prewriting this post due to my vacation, I’m not sure what I ended up with in math – hopefully with something good!!

I slaved away my entire summer on these fast paced courses that were jam packed with information but I feel surprisingly a-okay about it. Now I’m nine credits closer to my Associate Of Arts degree AND I’m a smarter person because of them! It sounds like a win win situation to me! I feel like every college kid completely dreads summer classes, I know I did. But I’m here to tell you that they really are not that bad. Alright, I lied…The first two or three weeks suck but once you get into the swing of things you’ll be totally fine. Summer classes are a great way to put you on the right track towards getting your degree and I am so glad that I took advantage of them.

I get a wonderful two and a half week break and then I will be back on the Tri-C grind for the fall semester. To kick start my sophomore year, I’ll be taking French, Ethics, Comparative World Religions, and Intro to Civilization. I’m already very excited for all of my classes and all I have to say is: bring it on!

Now that I’ve sent my summer classes on their merry way with a great big adieu, I can finally get on with my day! How is everyone’s week going? Who’s looking forward to the fall semester at their school? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

So Far So Good!

So Far So Good!

Heyyy everyone! So I know you’re all awaiting with baited breath to hear how my summer classes are going – and for the most part they’re all going great! I started my math and Sociology class on Tuesday, and apparently I won’t be starting my Social Psychology course until June 8th which came as a rude shock. (So now I only have eight weeks to complete that course. -__-) At first I was pretty overwhelmed by everything because let me tell you – it’s a lot! In all of my classes we’re going through about two chapters worth of work and information per week to finish each course in a ten week time period…it’s a bit much! (And by a bit I mean a lot.) Despite the excessive work load, I’m feeling pretty good about everything for the most part. I’ve been tucked in at the local Starbucks basically every day this week with a bag full of my textbooks, laptop, laptop battery, headphones, notebooks, planner, and writing utensils to keep me company. Each day I usually spend four hours at Starbucks, then I go home and take a little break to let my brain breathe, and then I start up again for another two or three hours. I’ll tell you what – by the end of the day I’m exhausted and my brain feels fried. I’m learning a lot of information every day and I swear my brain is running out of room to store it all in. My Sociology class is easy peasy, it’s basically just reading the textbook. But my math class is already a major frustration. I’m taking all of my courses online this summer and it’s just so difficult trying to learn new math skills over the computer. Yesterday the chapter we were working on had to do with subsets and yada, yada, yada and I was so confused. I read the chapter multiple times, I watched the videos about the subject, I looked through the Power Point presentations, and I “chatted” online with a tutor for a solid thirty-five minutes and I still didn’t understand a damn thing. That’s what I get for taking a math class online, I guess. Luckily, I posted a Facebook status yesterday asking for help from anyone good at math and one of my favorite customers from PacSun messaged me saying that he would help! So we’re gonna meet up for coffee tonight so he can try to explain things to me. Fingers crossed that I walk away with a new understanding on stupid subsets! 😉

On the bright not school related side, my 21st birthday is coming up very soon! June 7th, to be exact!!! So rest assured that this entire upcoming week will basically be me telling you guys how excited I am to turn the big 2-1 like a million times…Sorry not sorry! 🙂 And if you feel like sending Lil Red some birthday lovin, you can always get me a box of my Vidal Sassoon Runway Red hair dye from the London Luxe collection! I like to have multiple boxes handy at all times, so feel free to add to my stockpile! THANKS! 😉 ❤

^^^^ Study break jams! GETTIN DOWN ON FRIDAYYYYYYYY! #AYYYY

Well I must be off to finish my Sociology work and then I’ll be done with everything until Monday! Hurray! I’m so ready for a fun filled stress free weekend – god knows I need it! Does anyone else have a birthday coming up? What are you doing to celebrate? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Friendly Reminder!

Standard
Friendly Reminder!

Helloo everyone and happy Memorial Day weekend! So you guys might have noticed that I’ve been writing a lot more than usual this past week or so because I’ve been on a nice little break before I start my summer classes at Tri-C. Well my classes start on Tuesday, so you might not be hearing from me as much as usual, because I’ll have a buttload of classwork each week to take care of for three different classes. And in case you forgot, I’ll be taking Intro to Sociology, Social Psychology, and another math course. The best thing about the math class that I’m taking is that I’ll be officially done with anything math related if I pass the class – so keep your fingers crossed for me! My summer semester lasts for ten weeks, as opposed to the usual fourteen to sixteen week semester, so I’ll have a lot of work to complete in a short period of time. I’m slightly nervous about it, but I think that I should be just fine. I’m taking all of my courses online this summer so I don’t have to drive back and forth to Cleveland, so I’m looking forward to being able to hang out at the Starbucks down the street from my house to complete all of my work. So not only is this post a friendly reminder of the possibility of me being MIA every once and a while, but it’s ALSO a friendly reminder to make sure you follow my page so you can keep up on the latest and greatest once I get around to posting it! I can promise you that I’ll be up to a lot of fun shenanigans this summer since I’ll be turning 21 at the beginning of June (holla!), so you don’t wanna miss out on any of that good stuff! And as always, if you have any suggestions, questions, or concerns – you all know where you can find me in the comment section of my blog or via email! 🙂 ❤

^^^ It’s shameful how much I like this song and I’m so hopelessly in love with A$AP Rocky – HUBBA HUBBA!!!

How is everyone’s weekend going so far? Do you have any exciting Memorial Day plans? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! And pretty please wish me luck on all of my upcoming summer classes! Much love. -Sarah
