First Week of Summer Quarter: Done

Sure, I only have two days of school during the week but my Mondays and Wednesdays are jam-packed! I go from one class to the other to the other. I kinda like it. It keeps me focused. Besides, I'll always get a break on Wednesdays on Activity Period. Summer activity periods are really relaxed so I'll get to go outside for some fresh air and maybe catch a bit of color before heading back to the grind of an International Business class.

If you have the opportunity to come to school in the summer, I suggest you do. If you think about it, 3 months off school is pretty dramatic. You can lose a lot of what you've learned all semester in one summer. It's not like I'm missing out on summer fun by going to class. Half of my friends are still asleep by the time I'm done with all my classes. (You know everyone sleeps in during the summer.) I'm glad I've been coming to school in the summertime. Not only do I get to graduate a year early (think about it, 4 summers equals one year of school), I also get to keep all my classes fresh in my mind. I won't forget important skills and information I've learned from prerequisite classes because of a 3 month intellectual hiatus.

Also, summer quarter is only 11 weeks. So why not?

Right now, I just finished my first set of summer assignments. I will admit that professors are a little more lenient on homework in the summer. We get to work in class though. Most of the work is done in the classroom. The nice, cool, air-conditioned classroom. :-)

Now, I'm off to get my free Slurpee. It's July 11th (get it? Seven Eleven?) and most 7-11's are giving away free slurpees. Don't believe me? Check out this link and run to 7-11!
