First days are always a nervous, jittery one for me. The whole not knowing what to expect or what is expected of you scares me.
Today was my first day of classes and it absolutely didn’t help that I passed out pretty early last evening because I definitely woke up around 3am and couldn’t get back to sleep. All that were running through my mind was what I needed to remember to take with me in the morning and what I had to do and on top of that, just being nervous that I will pass out again and miss my alarm and be late. Luckily that didn’t happen.
So, how was my first day of classes?
It was different than any other type of classes that I have ever had. To be honest, this whole school is very different.
The school I am attending is a private college I believe and the way the program is set up is that, one course lasts about 3 weeks. So, you aren’t taking multiple courses at the same time but if you are doing courses in class, it is Monday – Friday for about 4 hours with breaks obviously. SO, the way this school is set up is already different than what I am use to. This can probably account for all my nerves and jitters this morning.
I got a quick orientation with another woman whom was also starting the program now and we were told that we were the two new people in the class. I didn’t really know what that meant but assumed that others have had classes together before. The class was pretty small about 9 people. I don’t think I have EVER had a class that small, I am sure that that will take me some getting use to.
Anyways, my first course is Introduction to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and I hope to bring you on my 3 week learning journey about the topic. What do you know about Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?
