University Tips

Starting Off Third Year University

I haven’t written a post in a while, so I figured I should probably write one about what’s been going on so far, which of course is just school and work pretty much.

I’ve recently started my third year York University (the Glendon campus) and so far it’s been pretty laid back. I don’t know if that’s due to the fact that I’m used to the work load or just because I have a killer schedule (12-6pm on Mondays, 12-3 pm Tuesday and Wednesday, 9-12 Thursday). Whatever it is, I like it. I’m much more relaxed now and I feel that I have more time to span out my work load (and extra time for procrastination!)

The main thing is my courses.

English Speaking Theatre in Canada
Modern English
French
Restoration Literature in the 18th Century
Introduction to Canadian Literature

All of the courses (except for French) are strictly FOR my English degree, which I love because taking all the extra requirements and introductory courses were hectic. But now I’m taking more specialized and specific courses that are interesting to me (to a certain degree) and I think that will make a huge difference in my grades this year. That, and I’m basically a veteran at this so it shouldn’t be too hard. My only complaint is that I find everything to be repetitive (so far it’s been repetitive of the historical backgrounds I learned last year). But hopefully as we get into the course and really start, it should pick up and be more interesting!
