Time Management and Organization in Online Courses

Time management and organization, especially when it comes to independent classes such as the ones offered through VTVLC, can be incredibly tricky.

Why I Chose VTVLC

I have always been an exceptional student, earning straight-A’s and taking advantage of honors and Advanced Placement options wherever possible. At the beginning of my sophomore year, though, my grades started to slip.

I knew I could not continue at a brick-and-mortar school and achieve the success I knew I was capable of.

Managing School and Mental Health

When you were a child, did you ever read the book ​Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day ​by Judith Viorst? If you didn’t, that’s alright. I’m pretty sure you can conclude the plot from the title. When I was young, I really liked this book. I thought the character of Alexander was pretty funny. As I’ve gotten older, though, this book has become more important to me. Before I go any further, I should probably let you in on a secret. I’m a bit depressed.
