I did some reading. I did some listening/watching. I even submitted some writings. That’s enough schooling for today. Good night all. Do try and be on your best behavior. I’d say behave…… but yeah – right. That ain’t going to happen.
I have been running. I just have not taken the time to upload the stats from Runtastic. And now that my classes have started, I will not be doing so anytime soon. I will keep running, but my time otherwise will be spent doing some very writing and reading intensive classes. One is Abnormal Psychology. The other is Science Fiction & Fantasy. This semester is going to be very trying for me.
Yes, I was cray cray and went for a run this morning. Stats will be posted later.
The other update is about college. I saw my academic advisor today. He gave me the proposal guideline I’ll need to write for my bachelors. I’m blending my addiction studies with psychology. So I’m actually going to be attending two colleges. Well, sorta.
I’m supposed to write about where I came from, where I’m at, and where I want to go. That way the two colleges can suggest classes for my bachelors and any further academic courses afterwards.
I’m excited. I’m getting closer to my goal.
All in all a good day.
I had three response assignments needing to be done by 11:59 PM. And they are all now completed. I can rest for the remainder of the night.
I had to interview a teen between the ages of 13 and 17. As I’m a 57-year-old man, that age group is not one I interact with often. My choices were slim to none. But, one of those choices was my 17-year-old niece. The interview was around her online social media use. I managed to write a 3 and a half page (Arial, 12 pt font, double-spaced) paper. I feel pretty confident about how I did. Now, I have to read someone’s post for this week’s subject and write a response.
I should be reading and completing a quick assignment for one of my classes, and instead, I’ve been surfing Facebook and playing chess. But, that’s enough of that, time to get to work.
Me, not you.
Update: Okay, okay. I successfully avoided school work avoidance. My assignment due Friday night at 5 to midnight has been completed and turned in. Now get off my back about it. And get off my lawn!
I managed to read the last 10th of one chapter, the full next chapter, as well as watch two videos, ace my quiz (Yeah Me!) and get two posts in the discussion forum all within two hours. I made it with 9 minutes to spare. And the kicker? I never felt under pressure once.
While one of my classes gave me the Thanksgiving weekend off – that means no assignments – the other class decided to double up and have two assignments due this week. Yeah, it sucked. And the class is not all that great. It started out with all sorts of technical glitches that put us behind. Plus, a lot of what we are doing doesn’t match with the book we had to buy. And the software program for planning a start-up is a piece of crap. It does not allow for simultaneous editing by a group. Only one person at a time can get in to edit. That’s bogus. There is supposedly a second part of this class. I am not taking it. Too much financial stuff that I just am not educated to deal with. Nor is it what I want to learn.
Okay, okay. I finished all my assignments. Including an extra one. I didn’t think one of the classes had a project for today. Thankfully it wasn’t that hard.
Now, how about you all just get off my back about homework, okay?
What is this homework you speak of?
Yes, I am supposed to be working on my school assignments. So, that means cleaning my office and desk.
I blame you.
