The amount of pressure that college brings is stupid. It’s a growing experience no doubt, but there is no reason we all have to be under immense pressure to go through college in four years or less just to graduate and move on.
Our professors can result in a lot of pressure and stress. Especially when you disagree with them. In my experience sitting in lectures and realizing a professor has more pride than compassion and grace to give, my disagreement with professors has been with how they teach, and not what they teach.
Sometimes they just didn’t make sense or weren’t clear with their information. The last thing I wanted to do was go to their office after class and ask more questions. There was this feeling of “why should I go the extra mile to clarify what the professor should have in the lecture?”
As an introvert, I want to learn the things I need to know and then get the hell out. My solution; online classes. I was very hesitant about them in my first three years of college. I thought I would procrastinate and not get the work done.
But with the pressure on me to do my job, it was the best fit. I could make my own schedule when it came to doing the work. All that was given to me was the assignment and a deadline each week. No lectures, no miscommunications and no time wasted. I was able to have all my work done in one day and have the rest of the week to do what I want. All this to say, if you haven’t considered online classes, give it a shot. It could be just what you’re looking for.
