About two weeks into the redemption of classes at York, and I have realized that it’s been ages since I wrote here. Schulich classes went last week and all of York is back in class this week. The biggest challenge is getting back into routine and the habit of studying and waking up before 1:00pm :).
Many professors just assume that you have been doing your readings and staying on top of the work during the strike which is so not the case, I mean you are barely motivated to do the readings while you do have class, let alone when you don’t and you don’t even know when you are going back so how would you be motivated to do anything!
So they just pick up where they had left it so it’s just like this last monday was monday November 11th or whatever. Everything is the same and they start the following lesson except there has been a THREE MONTH gap in between the two lessons, and that is a big challenge, for example I have a statistics course and the new lecture after the strike builds upon a lesson that was given before the strike over 3 months ago!
For those of you who are wondering how things work , and how we are going to finish the school year with a 3 month break in the middle, basically everything is pushed back a month and two weeks and they have cut one week from each semester and they have also cut reading week! We went back last week and we are having exams in ten days and then right away we start the winter semester which is going to end in JUNE!
Overall I am very content to be back, and I guess once you are deprived of an education you have paid for, for three months THEN you start appreciating school and not complaining quite as much about the amount work and such because AT LEAST you are getting an education…
