6:00 am Get ready for my class at the Elementary School.
I usually want to punch the snot out of my alarm before getting up at 6 am… but the class is always full of important discussion over content that I love (elementary major for ya). My teacher is the principal of the elementary school in the community, so my class is automatically networked with a community member in education. All the while having the experience of being taught by someone who is living my dream job.
8:00 am Music Appreciation
Now that I have taken this class, I no longer have to pretend to be cultured about the different music eras.
10:00 am Chapel
Most people will say the best days are Fridays because of praise chapel, but I like the days where students get up there and share everything they believe and their personal story.
11:00 am Work study
As a tutor, I usually get to chat with my best friend while we work and help others complete their homework. This is another one of those clichés that YC people will tell you about: connections and opportunities. YC offers tutoring to students for free and whether you are the tutor or tutee you make a connection with a new person.
12:00 pm Lunch
30 mins for lunch before choir. Usually I scarf down a turkey burger but occasionally I will take time to perfect a bowl of cinnamon toast crunch.
2:00 pm Comprehensive School Health
This is the class that surprised me because I ended up being so interested in school health. It’s fun to be in classes that I can make connections to my future dream job.
6:30 pm Supper
Eat supper REALLY REALLY fast to make it on time to cheer.
9:00 pm Homework time. Yay!
But for real, I do love getting work done though, I’ll admit that.
11:00 pm Walmart run
Usually I burn out from doing so much homework, so I find my friends and we go to Walmart until curfew. I literally end up just wandering around and finding food that I don’t really need but want in the moment so I buy it but I have no idea why to be honest.
12:00 am Curfew Checks.
Every night the RA’s will go around the dorm and check in on all of the residents. Usually when I check rooms people are already knocked out sleeping. It’s honestly really relaxing to see everyone else calming down for the night. I love this part of being an RA; I love seeing everyone at the end of my day.
