Where was I?

August 28, 2007 at 2:39 pm (School, Stress)

It’s been so long, I almost forgot the login infomation to this blog!  I’ve been having quite the past month or so and things may have just got more difficult.  I started my next block of classes at school and I think I’m in for a bit of a rough time.   The classes are critical thinking and effective essay writing.  sigh…

Let’s just say that I’m in for a ton of homework.  There go my weekends.

I don’t know about the marks of my first block of classes.  I was doing really well until an assignment came back with the remarks “This assignment is not completed.”  It was the same assignment that I spent the whole weekend trying to figure out because the instructions weren’t clear.  I’m sure the whole class had issues.  Let’s hope my second block of classes go well.  Speaking of which, I have homework to do.

School… I appreciate you so much more now that I’m grown

July 30, 2007 at 9:58 am (School)

If only school were this good when I was younger!  I didn’t know the joy of getting 100% on an assignment until these two college classes.  Had I known how great it felt, I probably would have been an honour student in high school.  I was just so lazy. 

My laziness creeps up on me, it’s got stealth mode. 

School is going very very well.  I have risen to the challenge and I am loving it!  People become annoyed for me when I tell them that my degree will take four years.  I think that after I’m done this four, I might do another four!  Don’t tell Michael, he’ll probably rip out his hair in frustration!

Week One is Ovah!!!

July 2, 2007 at 4:07 pm (School)

Well, after a full week at school, I have done two things:

1.  I have received perfect scores on all my assignments (go me)
2. I have had an online spat with a 20 year old child from idaho who thinks she knows it all (stupid young girls who know NOTHING)

I won’t go into details, but this child (and I use that term loosely) had it coming.  We have class discussions in an online forum, kind of like a chat room.  She has about an IQ of about 50 (spelling and punctuation DO MATTER)  and doesn’t know how to type or formulate a sentence.  So her question actually came out as an attack – and not only to me.  She did it to another student.  Talking about how I needed to respect her opinion and I needed to respect her.  It was UGLY.  Needless to say, I don’t respect her and told her so – and also said that I will not be responding to any more posts from her.  Except, I wasn’t that nice about it.

Some of my classmates are using the forum as if it were Myspace.  Chatting where they aren’t supposed to, making the main forum ugly with lost posts that were supposed to be filed elsewhere.  It’s so frustrating because I want to clean the threads up.  Everyone needs to follow the rules!  grrr

The first week of school did end on a great note, I got all of my assignments back from my professor and she made wonderful comments on them, grading me with perfect scores.  That’s how I roll yo’.

Where am I?

June 27, 2007 at 4:04 pm (School)

School started on Monday.  I had two items due on the first day of school.  It gets better.  I had 3 assignments due yesterday and 3 due today.  I have 3 due tomorrow and 3 due on Sunday.  When am I going to see the light of day you ask?  Call me back in 4 years. 

I am tired, but I lay in bed wondering what is due for tomorrow and how can I keep everything straight?  I need a Palm strictly for school work!  Plus, I’m in class with people who can’t speeel (or spel), or know the meaning of proper punctuation!!,.! 

One way we are marked on participation in the class is by responding to threads posted by other students.  I had to search for 1 hour just to find a thread worth responding to.  Then, in order not to make enemies of all my classmates on the 1st day of class, I really had to take it easy on this person and choose my words carefully.  I have a feeling that this will not be lasting long.   Anyway, participation requires that I respond to two threads with 200 – 300 words 3 times per week.  Do you know how hard it is to respond to “I totally agree with you!”  Which happened several times.  It amazes me the people that are attending this class. 

Did I mention that it’s an online school?  Yep.  I don’t ever have to listen to a professor in a classroom setting.  It’s awesome!

As for me, if you don’t see me online or see a regular post for a while, it’s not that I’ve died – I’m in school.
