  • "Never again a 7 AM class."

    I had an 8am Tuesday and Thursday statistics class my first quarter of grad school. I think I probably went it at most five times, and maybe twice actually on time. The memory of it fades, like some movie I only half-watched, but I swear that every day, I meant to go. And yet, something about getting out the door by 7:40 in any kind of Chicago weather is just not such a great plan, next to sleeping in.

    Going the other way, I had a 7-10pm Thursday night class once. Not so fun

    • 8:00 AM stats classes - that brings back memories.

      I got to mine about three times in the term - in each case I got to it because I was still up after an overnight programming session. The prof didn't believe I was in the class when I went to the exam.
      • Sometimes when my sleep schedule has me up at a weird hour poking at something or other, I hear my neighbor leaving the house for work at like 5:30. I have no idea what he does, but I doubt it's going to class. Maybe he's a baker or something.

        So anyway, one part of my brain says "sit in class at 7:30? HAH! Try doing hard manual labor at 6AM!". The other part of my brain says that the other half should shut up I can go back to sleep.

      • Well, last semester the 280 class was at the same time and my stats class was immediately after. Nothing says shock to the system like four straight hours of math, first thing, at 7 AM.

        You are what you think.
