If you`re not in college yet, you`re probably wondering what will it be like? Will I be able to wake up for those early 8am classes? (prob not). The truth is, high school and college are very different. The schedules are very different and you probably wont have someone waking you up in the morning. Here`s how my Tuesdays (My busiest and most stressful days) go as a full time college student and student worker.

  • 8:15AM- Wake Up Call

    An accurate representation of me getting up in the morning

My day starts off at 8:15AM on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. I wake up and shower then I try to eat a big breakfast because I dont really get a break inbetween classes on these days. I usually try to go to sleep before midnight because if I dont I find that its so much harder to actually focus on the things being taught in class.

  • 9:30AM- Psychology

My first class of the day is Psychology. I`m really interested in this class so its not as hard to pay attention to everything going on. This class lasts until 10:45AM since its a 2 days a week class which is the only thing that sucks because it feels like it kind of drags on.

  • 11:00AM- Political Science

  • We`ve been learning about Hamilton in Political Science so this seemed appropriate 🙂

My next class of the day is political science which is also my favorite class that I`m taking this semester. The professor that teaches this class is really funny and she makes the class fun. This lasts until 12:15 since it is another one of those 2 day a week classes.

  • 12:15pm – Break Time

After this class I have a 2 hour break before my next class so I usually go and get food with my roommate. We`ll usually bring the food back to our dorm and eat it there while we gossip and work on homework.

  • 2:20- Physics Lab

My lab lasts until 5pm but once we get done with the lab we can leave. We usually have a quiz at the beginning and then afterwards we work on the lab and we can go. My partner and I usually get done around 4:15 or 4:30 depending on how long the lab is and how much work we did beforehand. I dread going to my lab everyday just because I feel like its so much work and sometimes it just drags on.

5:15- Work

After my lab I usually grab food and then head to work. At my office job in my building, I can work on homework which is the best. I usually get a lot of my work and studying done at my job.

8:00pm- Relax

I get off work at 8:00 on Tuesdays and at this point Iv either finished all my homework or Iv finished most of it. Usually by now though, I`m tired and I want to just relax for the night. If I haven`t finished my work ill probably just cuddle up in bed in my pajamas and try to finish it all before midnight or Ill watch Mind Hunters on Netflix.

Wednesdays I start work at 9AM so I usually go to bed around the same time so I`m not exhausted at work.
