Many people dream of being able to go to school in their pajamas. While many college students do show up to campus in fuzzy slippers, it is not considered professional. If you have a professor who demands that you dress up for class, this is not an option for you at all. However, if you go to school online, you can show up for class in whatever you want.
Don’t Worry About Taking A Shower
You will never have to meet with anyone in person while you take classes online. This means you don’t have to worry about getting dressed or other personal hygiene rituals in the morning. If you do have to meet with a group, you can do so on Facebook or through a video chat. When you are on camera, you can simply put on a nice shirt because no one will see anything below your waist.
What Time Is Class?
Gong to class in your pajamas doesn’t mean that you are going to class in the morning. You are in complete control of when you complete your coursework. This means that you can do your work at night in your pajamas before you go to bed. If you want, you can even do your work while sitting in the tub. All you need is your laptop and an Internet connection that can go wherever you go.
Everything Gets Transmitted Online
Quizzes, tests, papers and anything else that you need to send to your professor will be transmitted online. All you will be given is a deadline for completing your work. Most professors will give you a list of tasks that need to be done by the end of the week. You may have a quiz that is due by Wednesday, a reading assignment due by Thursday and a test due on Friday.
However, you will never have to stop by your professor’s office to hand anything in. If you need help with your work, you can schedule an appointment for an online chat or ask your classmates for help via the class forum. This means that you don’t have to spend time getting dressed just to meet with your professor for a few minutes to go over your paper.
Nobody Will Judge You By Your Looks
There is something calming about not being judged by your looks when you are in a classroom. Older students don’t have to worry about being judged by younger students simply because of their age. People who are just generally self-conscious about their looks may drop out of school because of social anxiety. Online courses allow you to sit in your pajamas without anything saying anything about it.
There Is No School Shopping That Needs To Be Done
If you are short on cash, you don’t have to worry about school shopping stretching your budget. You can wear the same thing every single day if you really wanted to. While your friends are fretting about what looks appropriate for a classroom setting, you will slide over to your computer chair to get your day started.
The next time you are on the fence about taking classes online, think about what you just read. You don’t have to worry about what you look like, fancy clothes are optional and no one can judge you by how you look or dress. Those reasons alone should be enough to finally get you to commit to taking classes online.
