    Well as many of you all know I started school this week and things were going very well...until yesterday my bus was off schedule so I missed the first day that we had to turn in math hw in class, then this random theatre staff member came for my life because I was not there to help build sets that I had no idea existed...then today i woke up to a txt from an upperclassman friend who is at the other campus where i'm taking acting courses telling me that there was an orientation today.....great........so I now have to redeem my math grade on this quiz and hopefully make it out of my acting class unchewed on Monday...it's gonna be one hell of a Monday....but hey that's collegeicon_biggrin.gif I mean something like this was bound to happenicon_rolleyes.gif

    It'll all work out.

    In college there is no one to hold you by the hand and lead you through the things you need to do - you have to take responsibility for figuring it all out yourself, even if that means reaching out and asking. And if your bus is late, that's your problem. A great lesson in adulthood!

    No, the fucking comes Sophomore year, once all this stupid crap is easy and you find you have time for fun; coincidentally, the same time frame most drop out or lose any and all GPA.

    Sounds like drama programs are causing drama. I never understood the appeal if the theater scene. I was and am a math person to the core. Best of luck to you.

    It's your first week and there's always a learning curve. Speak to your math instructor and explain the situation. Professors are people too and sometimes they can make exceptions. Be apologetic and let him/her know that you will do your best to not let that happen again. I always tell my students to communicate with me. I can't work with you if you don't talk to me and let me know.

    As for the the other stuff - you know that theater people are "drama queens" literally. Take it with a grain of salt and don't let it get you down.

    It's been a hectic first week for a lot of people, but it will settle down and you will get into the groove.

    Best of luck!

    Time to grow up. Figure out where you are supposed to be and make sure you are there. Don't blow it off as. "well something was bound to happen"

    College is all about structure and planning.

    indeed, also if you can find anyone who you agree with, and will help with reminders then they're good to keep around ;)

    I thought it was about fucking off. I worked 20-40 hours a week with full time classes and an A average and somehow still managed to feel like I was spending hours doing nothing all the time.

    Take it in stride because your a freshman your not used to it but like everyone says its about being independant and working out your stuff now, because even later on in college you will be finding less and less support. Remember there's a first for almost everything so just take it bit by bit.

    Personally I'm a procrastinator so if I don't plan out all of my homework, reading, studying, projects etc I wont get it done in time. But then again I'm an ad major so every ad I make I spend about 15-20 hours on minimum. 9/10 times I don't do well on something it's because I did it last min or forgot.

    In college it is more about being organized and using your time effectively more/so than actually being smart. I was always a B student in H.S. and in college I am an A student. Crazy how reorganizing your time changes things around.

    My first college fuck up was forgetting to set my alarm for my 9 am business class and woke up and it was 8:47 am.... I don't know how the fuck I did it, but I made it there at 8:58 am.... almost had a heart attack though (and wore my clothes over my PJs!)

    You have to organize yourself. Get an agenda or print a monthly calendar and write down all your activities, homeworks, and exam dates. If you do this, you won't forget anything, and you'll be able to plan ahead. Like if I have a math exam next Wednesday,then I have to start reviewing on Sunday. You get the idea. Good luck!!
