As most dual credit students know, the second semester at Collin has officially begun.

For the first semester I signed up to take two dual credit classes, however they were both online. This semester however, of the two new classes I am taking, one of them is a face to face class. Hearing this news, I was incredibly excited. However, there was only one problem.

It’s at 7 a.m.

Twice a week.

I don’t know about you guys, but I am not a morning person. I can hardly wake for school every day which starts at 9 a.m., but now I have to get up at 6 a.m. every Monday, and Wednesday, and be at the Collin campus bright and early.

Honestly they could have made the class during the day, especially because my entire schedule is virtual. However, I do understand that the counselors wanted the class to be done before 9 a.m. when Liberty opens. I’d have been a lot more excited about this class if it were to have been during the day, but we’ll see how the next few months go. 

Not only is the class that I am taking very early in the morning, it’s also one of the only classes being held at that time. So it’ll be quiet, and dark, and I’m praying I don’t fall asleep in class. I’m used to having a blanket by my side at all times, but that won’t be the case anymore.

Anyways, if you’re taking any dual credit classes this semester, good luck! I’ll see you guys next week.
