    How is college going?

    Oh wow, I'd love to be prepping for a presentation in class instead of writing this essay I'm writing right now. I'm sure you'll do fine, especially since you have experience with public speaking already. Good luck!

    How is college going?

    Yes! I think that is what I find nice about my going back to college as well. Probably helps that I have the experience of studying already, but I also feel like it's a challenge, but not something I can't overcome. In two weeks I have my first presentation in class. It's so stupid because I speak in public all the time for work. But I'm a bit stressed for this one. ??

    How is college going?

    Hi! I returned to school this fall to continue working on my AA after a hiatus and I'm taking a couple of classes this semester to start with. I'm taking an algebra and a composition class, and I'm enjoying my composition class even though it's really hard and emotionally draining sometimes. I feel like I'm being properly challenged and I'm not being crushed under the weight of it. Best of luck to everyone in school!
  5. Hello fellow studying FJers! I hope to revive this club with this first thread. I can start with my own situation. I am currently doing a come-back to college for a micromasters in teaching. I'm doing it part time, while working a fulltime job. Even if I finished my masters only 2 years ago, I was a bit anxious to go back. What was the most stressful for me was the idea of managing the class loadwork and my job. Time management was a struggle even when I was a full time student, so of course I was expecting it to be awful with my fulltime job. That is why I decided to take only one evening class. Turns out I am managing ok. Not as bad as I thought. It also is encouraging to realise I really like my class. I find the subject very stimulating (and it helps that my professor is pretty cool). Honestly, it tells me I'm doing the right thing in trying to become a teacher. I worked on my second paper this weekend, due later this week. I wish this can be a place to discuss the realities of being a student, the struggles and successes of furthering your education. Work hard and study on!

      I'm not able to update the logos to the fall ones today -- there's a bug that is solved in a recent update version to fix it, but I don't have the time to do that until next week. Until then, we are still living in an endless summer friends!

      Today is a "I ain't wearing pants" day. Yesterday was pretty shitty so today I'm doing as little as I can get away with.

      Second Covid vax is currently kicking my butt. Fever, chills, body aches, exhaustion, etc. 
      Miserable, but so so grateful to be vaccinated. Sure as hell beats actual Covid.
