Last week was a really long week. I had a near meltdown on Friday night when I logged into the chatroom for a scheduled (and required) chat with my group. (Yes, it was scheduled on a Friday night. Don't ask.)
I logged in right on time, but I was still the last one there, and by that time responsibilities were doled out and I got stuck with taking notes and turning them into our prof. I was kind of annoyed because I had a 10 page paper due on Saturday to put together (the paper was in bits and pieces and basically outlined) and stuff to finish for this online class that was due on Sunday night. I was a sport though.
I'm not a fan of these online chats. It is hard to completely understand what people mean without hearing their tone of voice and they're just not that beneficial to me. I would rather post discussions like those on a discussion board and reply on my own time.
Luckily, after the chat was done, and the notes were typed up and turned in, I was feeling much calmer. Sometimes I just need the freak-out moment, ya know? By Saturday afternoon I had my paper put together and I was ready to proofread it the rest of the day and then turn it in by midnight.
Did you know I'm a procrastinator? It's a terrible disease. I'm trying to get better. Really.
So, now I am down from four summer classes to just one. I finished the first three successfully with few meltdowns and now I just have two more sections of this last online class to finish up then I will be done with the summer semester and will have a chance to relax until fall semester starts on August 27th.
I'm so ready for this down time and I'm really looking forward to a bunch of fun stuff coming up.
Did you take summer classes? What are you looking forward to during the last half of the summer?
