Schoooool's out...

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!

  1. Now add 4 kids to the mix and then you will understand why it is too hard for me to go back to school. :) The thing I've learned about online classes discussion questions is to answer it quickly and immediately respond to two peoples with a couple sentences and then forget about it. It's done.
