8:15 a.m Wake up! This usually takes a few minutes, as I am not a morning person, but eventually I make it out of the door.
8:50 am Morning walk across Mac Field. I do this every day so it signals to my brain that it's time to start academics—it's a little morning ritual that I really enjoy.
9:00 am Research Methods. It's a little bit of statistics, a little bit of psychology and a lot of experimental design. I'm not particularly research oriented, but I like this class because it teaches me to think outside of my comfort zone.
9:50 am Coffee Time! I take a quick trip to the Spencer Grill in between classes. I have two classes back-to-back in the same room, so it's nice to go for a short walk and stretch.
10:00 am Physiological Psychology. I really love this class. It's lecture based but never feels like that since everyone participates. Professor Rempel-Clower is always super excited about the topic, which gets everyone in the class really fired up. I always leave in awe of the human brain and body.
11:00 am Russian 221. I finally made it up three flights of stairs in Alumni Recitation Hall (or ARH, as everyone calls it)! Time to speak Russian! This is my third semester taking Russian and I love everything about the department. I'm hoping to go abroad to St. Petersburg in Russia next year.
12:00 pm Lunch. Done with most of my classes for the day so it's time to relax for a little while.
1:00 pm through 4:00 pm Miscellaneous. I like to do homework during the afternoon or maybe fit in some work for admission. After 4, I usually take a break and go to the gym, hang with friends or call my parents and then go to dinner.
7:00 pm Conversational Russian. I learn so much vocabulary in this class. It's also great to have a once a week class to practice speaking skills.
8:00 pm Student Staff. As a student advisor we have weekly staff meetings to go over things like study break ideas, or any floor/dorm concerns. We also get to play with our RLC's (Residence Life Coordinator) new puppy, Ginger! It's always an awesome time.
9:00 pm Free time. Back to hitting the books and hopefully getting to bed early!
