Hello everyone! How are you guys doing? As for me, I’ve been busy since the past week because summer classes have started and just last Monday, my priority enrollment for this coming fall semester also started. I’ve been stressing over finding out if all classes are really going to be online since I heard that the government is slowly allowing schools (but not colleges and universities yet) to reopen, so I’ve been bombarding the school with questions. I’m obsessing over this because I will have a completely different schedule for face-to-face classes. Ugh. Not knowing what’s certain makes it harder to plan sometimes.
So I’ve been spending more time than I normally would on rate my professor’s website to help me narrow down my choices. I’ve been using this website since I went to college and it was very helpful. First, I check all the professors that are going to teach that particular class and I would look up their ratings on the website one by one, then I will list all the ones that have very good ratings as well as the schedule for the class. I also put a star on the ones that are my top choices. After that, I organize them and try to fit into my schedule. I tried to do one that’s applicable for both face-to-face and online, but it’s not possible. Well, it’s possible if I take one of my classes with a professor that has a not-so-good rating and I tried taking one before and it turned out pretty well but right now is not the right time to take that risk since all the classes that I have left are all heavy and hard. There are also classes that are only taught by the same professor so I have no choice but to take it despite the reviews.
So back to contacting the school, the admissions office told me that all classes are online, but there’s uncertainty in laboratory classes. They said that some labs may be held on campus. If that’s the case, then that’s another problem. I also checked the school’s website and there’s a newer announcement that was posted just the other day about sticking to all classes online throughout the fall semester even if the government allowed colleges and universities to reopen. I thought I don’t have to worry anymore, but my professor in physics lab right now said that there’s still a possibility that labs will be held on campus and that they’re still discussing it. Just like that, I went back to zero again. I’m pressured to start registering for classes and starting next month, all students will be able to register and by then, it will be harder to change sections because classes will fill up quickly. I’m also pressured because this will be my last semester (hopefully) before I transfer to a university.
This is stressing me out. I feel like I’m losing my sanity. I want to know what’s certain, but the only thing that’s certain right now is uncertainty.
