Leadership Class

When I walked into the classroom, it was the same classroom as the Monday night class. The tables were in pods. I took a seat near the back. On Monday night, I was in a group that was at the front of the class. I don’t like that so much. I much prefer the back of the room.
A few minutes before class, some girls from my class last semester walked in and took a seat at the table with me. I was hoping my friend Julia would be able to sit at the table too, but she ended up sitting at another table. She got there right before class started. The instructor is my adviser. She had a TA with her. I was a little nervous.
Once we got settled in, the professor had us go around the room and give our name, our school, and whether or not we had a leadership class before. It seems as though there were a good number of people, who had some form of leadership style class before and may not need to be in this class in particular.
At one point, one of the girls at my table said, “I thought this class was supposed to be smaller.” The other girl said, “Yea, but I think she opened it up to more people.” I try to listen to chit chatter as much as I can. You learn a lot, by just listening in.
After introductions, which took a half an hour, because it was such a big class, the instructor went over the syllabus and I see that we have a 15-20 page paper due on October 10th. It is a group paper, so it shouldn’t be too bad, but it has to be written in one voice. Hopefully, she will assign groups next class, so we can get a jump on this paper. This class and Politics in Higher Education will be the death of me. I do remember feeling like this last semester, and I ended up doing well, so maybe that is a good sign. I just get so in my head.
Throughout class, we did some activities and assignments in groups. It was so fun. I used to hate those things, but now I enjoy them. I do like a lecture and high tel type style. I like a little of both I suppose.
For next class, which is not until after Labor Day, we have to think about three books off the list that we would be interested in reading with our group. We have to pick one book per group. We have to analyze a leader, and we can’t pick president Trump.  I am ready to start this paper.
After class, I felt drained and exhausted. I met up with Drew and we were on the way home.  We talked about our classes and what he learned in Slovak class, and how class went with me. We talked about the assignments and how stressed I feel already. He is so supportive. Once we got home, I got ready for bed. I about had it for the night. I am going to be so busy this semester.
