Excuse me while I go study my summer away...




Kurt: "Um, remember how we signed you up for that Independent Study Class?"

Me: "Oh yeah...."

Kurt: "Well, it expires in 6 weeks. And you still haven't started it."

No problem, right? 11 lessons, 2 midterms, and a final. I could probably wait a few weeks before starting it, and be fine.

Still, I decided to humor him, and check it out.

"Read the assigned chapters..."

"Turn in 11 journal entries..."

"Each chapter contains a series of instructor graded assignments that must be completed and turned in together..."

"There will be three exams: 2 midterms, and a final..."

"Finally, you will complete a Family Analysis Paper. This paper will be 33 pages long, and written in 11 segments. For each chapter you complete, you must write a 3 page paper and submit it to the course instructor."

Holy.Crap.

Maybe this whole "Graduating" and "Getting my Degree" thing isn't necessary, after all...

Online courses are so iffy. You never know if they'll be a breeze or if you'll have to work your butt off!

You can do it! Start now and you might even still be able to fit in sleeping for a few hours at night. ;)

Stopping by from LBS. I always said I wish I could just stay in college forever and I actuallly liked class. Reading this reminded me of what I don't like. I suppose working isn't THAT bad :)

OH NO! That sounds like pure misery.... I am so sorry you have to do that over Summer break. One of my best friends just took the bar exam and he was studying the whole summer away as well! Poor things!

Good luck. Let me know how it goes, I'm sure you'll do great. Maybe you can get Kurt to help you study

oh yuck!

I dreaded online courses because I always procrastinated on them. If I do them again they will have to have "turn-in" dates when things are due, otherwise I'll be doing what I did last time: Turning everything in at the last minute, ALL at once.

Good Luck! I'm sure you'll get it done on time!

EEPS!!! The good news is that you can google lots of things, but the bad news is that paper!

I'll be sending well wishes your way!!! :)
