demanding classes

Hi all, please explain to me the meaning of the bold one in this context. It's from Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick.

Sixty nights closer to the end of summer vacation, when I could once again throw all my energy into school. I’d already decided to pack my schedule with demanding classes. I could handle homework in every shape and form, but heartbreak was entirely different.

    The classes do the demanding; what they demand is a lot of work. Demanding classes are difficult classes she will have to spend a lot of time studying for. Apparently she hopes that this will keep her from thinking about whoever broke her heart.
