In order to graduate from HWS, along without being a complete idiot, you need to complete 8 academic goals. These goals are part of the liberal arts experience meaning you can try a little bit of everything until you find what resonates with you.
This semester, my course load consists of "The Video Essay" for my MDSC major, "Grammar & Style" for my WRRH major, along with calc 1 and a geoscience course. The latter two are courses I am taking for my quantitate and qualitative goals before I head abroad next fall to Norwich, England. Despite not having done any math or science since high school, this post is still not about any of these courses. The hardest course I have ever taken is my Writing & Rhetoric class "Grammar & Style." As I mentioned, this class is for my writing major and it's one of the core classes, meaning pass/failing this class can't happen!
Even though we are only in week 3, I'm already feeling the pressure from this course. We started class by learning the 8 parts of speech, but now we're identifying sentence patterns and diagramming sentences and so much more is to come. This class meets several times a week and each day has readings and work due. I find myself getting lost as our professor lectures on the ideas from the readings. My notes are often incomplete as I'm racing to ask questions, copy the board, and still slide in the casual joke to my neighbors. While I may seem effervescent in class in reality I am being crushed under the existential burden of life.
Right now I should be doing my readings for this course, but I felt like I had to vent. And all my friends are in a meeting so I turned to the internet in hopes of finding you.
You are probably also busy with courses that are also testing your will to live, but know that you got this.
Where there is a Will there is a way, and this is Will's Script by Will, with so much Willpower in front of you there is no way you can fail.
