help, I need advice! - January 17th 2012, 03:53 AM

So, all my classes are online except for one. and I will only be at the actual college monday and wednesday. However, It sucks because I will spending 90 percent of my time at home.This will grow to be depressing and I will get cabin fever really bad. I will not have any spare time at all. If I go to a friend's house, I will be afraid I may not come back home for a couple of days because I will grow so sick of being at home it will be completely pathetic. Even though the classes are online, I still have deadlines to meet which sucks. I am afraid I will go stir crazy and on top of that, since I will be at home more, that means I will have to deal with 10 times more drama. What should I do to avoid going insane? I really wish I could go to the college for these classes but they were only available online and they are classes I have got to have. any advice?

You could always go to the library or cafe at your school. This way you can be away from home, at your school, and maybe you can even meet some people, hang out.

Yeah, definitely going to the library at school to study is a fantastic way to get out of the house while still being productive. In addition, you might want to talk to some people in your online classes and maybe form some kind of study group that meets on campus (once a week, once a month, before exams, etc. - whatever you choose).

I'd also recommend getting involved on campus. Just because most of your classes are online, it doesn't make you less of a student - so be an active one. Get involved with student council, a club, a sport - something that satisfies your interests. This is a great way to not only get out of the house and the habit of studying/doing school work all of the time, but it also gives you the opportunity to meet new people who share what you like to do.
