May I be excused from the table?
As of today, I've started taking classes online toward my BSN. It's great that I can do the work whenever I want (like in the middle of the night), but MAN is it a lot of it! Lots of reading, hours of lectures to view, and (the HORROR!) a paper due in two weeks.
I just finished taking notes on the first two chapters (out of four) of this week's assignment. I would begin viewing a lecture but I think it would bounce off my eyeballs without sinking in at this point.
I've visited our class message boards and I can tell just from the few posts there who I would be flicking spitballs at if we were in a regular class. People have started asking dumb questions ("does this count towards our final grade?") and are already not following the professor's instructions: for example, answering a "roll call" on the message boards after the professor sent everyone an email stating to reply to the roll call via email and NOT ON THE MESSAGE BOARD.
Gach. Wish me luck. And now, I'm going to have a beer and make some meatballs.
