Whining About School Again

:note: The Presidents of the USA – “Kitty”

I am so overwhelmed. That new class I registered for? It has a 4-5 page paper due this Monday. I have to research something called Cascadia for one class, for another I must research some company and come up with new design ideas for their website, and for the remaining class I have to do four 8×10″ collages, write a one page paper on myself, write a 1-2 paragraph thing on how I would describe myself to a potential employer, come up with 10 or more concepts for my personal identity/branding, and then write a very specific and well-thought out creative brief. I will admit that I didn’t even know what a creative brief was until halfway through that class.

THIS IS ONLY WEEK ONE. Week one is supposed to be filled with meaningless self-introductions, some preliminary assignments to gauge your knowledge about the subject at hand, maybe a project. Not this.

Instead of being revitalized after break and returning with newfound vigor and enthusiasm, I am finding I’m wishing to retreat and get away from it all. I have absolutely no motivation to do anything and it’s incredibly frustrating. It’s like, I have so many things to get done that I don’t feel like I can do any of it. There’s just too much stuff.

    I am feeling the same way. 114 pages to read by wednesday….if only that was all I had haha.

    I wonder if it is because it is a shorter term, but is this not typical for a summer term?

    Summer terms are generally 10 weeks instead of 11, so we can have two weeks off in fall instead of just one. But yeah, I don’t know, this still seems like an unusually difficult week one.
