for the semester!
(You know that tune...Alice Cooper School's Out for Summer!)
And as of last Thursday I was done with my first two classes back in the books.
It was a learning experience on several levels: I actually learned a few new things; but I also learned what it was like to be a "non-trad", how hard it was to work full-time and keep up with my assignments, and what to expect from here on out. It was an experimental semester, if you will.
I got all my assignment in with good grades on everything. I even had an A++++ on an assignment and the professor asked if she could use a different project for a class example. I will get docked in one area though - the "class" discussions.
Both of my classes were online and we had to contribute our own answers to discussion questions and also reply to several of our classmates. I didn't do all of that. I was much more concerned in getting the high ticket items with lots of points in. So, I may not be a gold star student this semester.
Next week, I have to meet with an advisor to figure out a game plan for what classes I have to have in order to get a new degree - and a new career.
It's been nice to have some days off and a homework free weekend!
