Going to Class for the First Time
My first class of the semester is in one hour. It’s a class for my major so I probably will know some of the people in the class. But for some reason, without fail, the beginning of each semester, I get SO nervous.
I mean right now, I have butterflies in my stomach. I want to vomit. I can’t stop tapping my feet or rambling to my coworkers.
Aagh! The suspense just kills me! Who is going to be in my class? Is someone going to be in there I don’t get along with? Are my friends in my major also in the class? Who am I going to sit by? What if I sit in that spot and then hate it but am stuck there for the whole semester because that’s what humans do? What if I don’t know anything? What if, when I walk in, I just stand there and everyone stairs at me with blank faces? What if I walk into the wrong class?
What if… What if… What ifffffff…. What………… if……………..
I have to go to class now. It doesn’t start for another half an hour, but I can’t wait any longer!
I totally understand. Before the first day of school I usually have to lay everything out on the counter like my spirals, books, folders, pens, etc. and count them 3-4 times to make sure I have everything I need! Then I pack them up and unpack them the next morning to count and recheck that it’s all there.
