Dear Tiff and Earl,
What happened to Syllabus Week? It’s one day into the semester and I’m already feeling the burnout. Help.
Going Downhill Fast
Now, now, always remember that you MUST put yourself first. If you feel that you need to, take a self-care week. Don’t worry about your professors, your classes, your roommates, or any other responsibilities. Write a syllabus on YOU, and make THAT class your first priority. You can’t graduate without fulfilling YOUR core requirements!
Dear Going Downhill Fast,
When I find myself in times of trouble, I pull out my handy-dandy binder full of printed copies of all of Dean Sears’ emails from the past few years. Stop whatever you’re doing, go to your nearest printer (use your precious printing money if necessary—this is worth it), print the email of your choice, and carry it with you wherever you go to remind yourself that no matter how rough of a start your semester is off to, you are part of one heart. One heartbeat. One community.
Your dean of advice/vice president of Tiff and Earl affairs,
