A TON of people (almost everyone I talk to) is telling me to only take 3 courses while enrolled in IAT 233 because of the high workload. I’m really lucky to have people concerned about me and it’s really awesome to have so many people to draw advice from… However I feel that I can do it. Is it going to be busy? Yes. Is it going to be hard sometimes? Yes. Is it also going to be awesome because I LOVE everything I am committed to? HELLZ YES! I’m so excited for another year. I am a really hard working and motivated person.
Let’s do a little recap…
Last year I started university.
I took 4 courses first semester and was SUPER bored.
I volunteered as an assistant director/production assistant for two Theatrix show, “The Little Princess” and “Les Miserables”.
EDIT: I totally forgot I was in a show too! Rocky Horror went up during first semester. DUR.
I was also the TechOne Rep on the Surrey Campus Committee (SCC) but this required minimal effort.
I volunteered at a bunch of the university events as well.
I took voice lessons and competed in three categories at a festival which took some time to prepare for.
I took a dance class through the SFU Rec program.
Second semester I took 5 courses while still volunteering with the two Theatrix shows.
I found that this semester was a good workload for me.
I also commuted to all three campuses last year
This year I will be starting my second year of university and…
taking 4 Classes
being a Tech Teams Leader
being an Orientation Leader
being the Interactive Arts + Technology Student Union (IATSU) Communications Officer
acting in Into The Woods with Theatrix
Should be fine : )
I can’t validate only taking three courses and my Mom isn’t a big fan of that idea. I’m not working because my focus is going to school so I really want to immerse myself in the experience this year (something I could have done better last year). All my courses are in Surrey which will save me TONS of transit time. I am telling myself I can do it and I will do it. Everything will be fine, or better than fine. Everything will be wonderful. It’s all for the best : )
PS: As I was writing this I made friends with a racoon. Thought you should know. Yay for backyard blogging!
