Hello there folks, J.P here again with another blog. As you can tell by the topic, I think Tuesdays are the new Mondays. In high school, we all hated Mondays because that was the day we went back to school, which meant our weekend finally came to an end. Well, for me, in college, I dread Tuesdays! I have a majority of my classes Tuesdays. Let me give you guys a run down of my schedule on Tuesdays so you guys can feel my pain. haha.
7:30 AM- I wake up. I take a shower, brush my teeth, the usual morning stuff. But, I am not a morning person at all, so waking up this early is basically torture for me. I usually go to bed early on Monday night since I have no classes.
8:00 AM- 10:00 AM- HEALTH CLASS! This is probably one of my favorite classes at Azusa Pacific thus far, mostly because I have an amazing professor called Don Lawrence. He used to be the director here at High Sierra a few years back, but now teaches Fit For Life and Health here at High Sierra. I highly recommend him as a professor because he is a totally rad and personable “dude”. haha. Where does breakfast fit in you ask? Basically after I finish getting ready, I grab my note book and text book and rush to the dining hall, and grab some food and carry it to Health class. Don doesn’t mind us being a couple minutes late, and he doesn’t mind us eating either.
10:00 AM- 11:30 AM- PLENARY CLASS- right after Health, I walk to Plenary class, which is just a class where all of the professors here give a lecture of their class and insight on their classes. It’s kind of hard to explain, but it’s like an introductory class
11:30 AM- 12:30 PM- LUNCH- Right after plenary class, I head to lunch. It’s pretty self explanatory. It doesn’t take me a full hour to eat, so I use the rest of my time prepping for my next class or just chilling or calling my parents.
12:30 PM- 2:00 PM- GREAT IDEAS CLASS- It’s a philosophy class and it’s probably the class that makes my wheels turn the most. Dave Williams teaches this class, and he’s a genius when it comes to Philosophy. I highly recommend you take his class whenever you come up to High Sierra. This class never fails to bore me. It’s engaging, and we have friendly debates and conversations about what were learning. We’re reading the Republic by Plato right now, and it makes me think a lot. I love this class
2:00 PM- 6:00 PM- FREE TIME! I am free for four hours basically for all of my Tuesdays. I usually kick it back and relax, start on homework, hang with friends, or just procrastinate. haha. 4 hours can really fly by past.
6:00 PM- 7:00 PM- DINNER – Self explanatory. We just have dinner and get to chillax and have much laughter at our dinner table.
7:00 PM- 10:00 PM- CHRISTIAN CLASSICS- I am burnt by this point, so Christian Classics is a hard class for me to pay attention in because I’m so exhausted from my day. I usually drink a coke for caffeine to keep me awake. Michael Robbins, aka DJ Robbins teaches this class and he is also amazing! He is a great guy. His voice is very relaxing and soothing, almost makes me want to fall asleep. He is really passionate about his teaching and it reflects the way he teaches. Christian Classics is a humanities class.
10:00 PM- 12:00 AM – WASHING DISHES- I have an on campus job here at High Sierra, where I have to wash dishes with another dish washer. We wash all of the plates and other stuff from dinner that night. It’s pretty fun cause you get to listen to music and talk with your other dish washer, but sometimes I hate it because I’m so tired, and ready for bed.
So basically my Tuesdays start from 7:30 AM and ends at midnight. But hey, I only have two classes on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and no classes on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, or Mondays. So I have it easy. But my friends here at High Sierra want to go Raccoon Hunting so I will see you guys later! We just spotted a lot of raccoons running all over the place so this night shall be fun!
Much love and God Bless, J.P!
