How To Sign Up For College Classes

July 16, 2010

It’s that time of year again: picking out classes for the next semester of college.

Step 1: Pick out the classes you like and want to take.

Step 2: Discover that almost all the classes you like are either filled up, won’t fit into your schedule, or aren’t required for your degree.

Step 3: Pick out classes you only sort-of like.

Step 4: Sign up for classes.

Step 5: Have one thing go wrong. Re-do entire schedule.

Step 6: Sign up for classes.

Step 7: Have a blissful 3 weeks of a semi-perfect schedule ready. Right before classes start, discover some have been canceled due to lack of enrollment, or because God hates you.

Step 8: Scream.

Step 9: Desperately attempt to re-arrange your school schedule to coincide with your work schedule, your degree track, outside obligations, and attempts at sleeping at least 5 hours a night.

Step 10: Fail miserably and spend the semester balancing second-choice classes and a crippling social life.

    Before I go to work, I like to spend some time stroking my college degree and crying.

    It’s depressing how much this echoes my own college experience. Booking classes this week, in fact. Or trying to. Fail.
