Hey anon. Big breath in: relax. Be as this lioness.
There is literally nothing you can do about your schedule until you get here. Let the future be the future. We’ve got processes in place; it’s possible to drop as many classes as you need to drop, so long as you’re savvy about replacing them. It’s awesome that you want to get out of your comfort zone like this, so I’d say go for it. On the flip side, no Bennington class is going to be like anything you took in high school. Go for it anyway, though. It’s a good impulse. Just — go for it in a few weeks, and let yourself enjoy summer until then. When you get here, your adviser and various others will support you through whatever changes you need to make. If you find yourself really stuck, talk to your house chairs. They’ve navigated add/drop many a time before. Heck, come find me personally. I’m pretty good with schedules. And just keep looking at that lioness. That lioness has got it all figured out.
Seriously, Ray has been nailing it on the Facebook group and Tumblr. Awesome responses.
Like the planet itself, human history goes round. There are dawns of hope and sunsets of sorrow, springs of aspiration and autumns of despair.
