I said this two semesters ago when I tried taking an online history course and hated it and switched out of it two weeks later and that other time I took a blended public policy class and hated it. I. hate. online. courses. I don’t know why I even bother taking them. I thought it would be beneficial to take Career Exploration online this semester for three reasons 1- the teacher was my career counselor and he is a cool guy 2- with taking 20 credit hours this semester, I figured it would be nice to have one class that I wouldnt need to attend so many times a week 3- I needed a easy class this semester and I thought this would be both benefiting to myself and easy. It meets all of my expectations except- I dont know how to contact my teacher EVER. I’ve had to go in and see him personally twice because the communicate section of the course NEVER WORKS and I don’t know his email address because I fail to ask him for it every time I see him and he didn’t put it in his syllabus. He never posts our grades. He never posts the due dates to any of the modules so I have to guess when I’ll be closed out of one. Since he completely closes the modules, I can never go back and refer to previous assignments which is annoying especially when he is asking me to reference something already done. He closed a module that had the instructions for our second big assignment of the semester and now I don’t know what to do for it/how to go about setting up my interview. He never answers the questions tab even though he says that’s the first thing he checks when he signs on.
So in conclusion, what the fuck was I thinking? I would so rather be sitting in a class getting lectured at, being able to talk to the teacher whenever I have an issue, getting all of my assignments back and being able to reference all of the material we’ve gone over.
-Early morning walk
-Cleaning my room forever
Sounds wonderful to me!
Now that we are neighbors again I hope to see you before the weeks over.
This weekend in Saratoga was actually really nice. The weather was beautiful and I didn’t have to work at all this weekend, so there was no way I wasn’t going to enjoy myself. The conference was basically one big pitch to try and get new regional officers which didn’t apply to any of us since we’re all transferring so we took the opportunity to skip all of the irrelevant stuff and wonder around Saratoga, mostly eating. They had a wonderful Olive Oil Company where I bought pineapple balsamic, Putnam Market that had a bunch of fresh foods/deli/bakery/CHEESE/salsas/etc., green freshly made kettle corn for St. Patrick’s Day, Cantina a wonderful Mexican restaurant where I enjoyed fish tacos and best of all, Forno Bistro that had the best Italian food in NY outside of Endicott.
We went on walks through Skidmore, admiring all of the historic homes and read in the park. I should have taken some pictures, but stupidly I didn’t.
It was a very happy weekend for sure.
Its a good thing I got more hours at work.
Ok so I got two acceptance letters this week and now I’m stressing out realizing that I can’t even make a decision about what kind of bagel to get from dunkin donuts some mornings without thinking too hard about it and some days I pick the one that I really didn’t want and should have just gotten the other one and now I’m realizing I’m going to have the same problems with picking a college but if I make the wrong decision it will be more terrible than having a disappointing breakfast and really I did well with my decision to go to BCC and even if I could go back in time I would still pick BCC so I hope I make another good decision when picking my next school.
Back when I was first becoming really good friends with Katelyn and re-becoming friends with Alison I remember driving up to Katelyn’s house and them and Court doing a cheer in the yard for my twitter name laur_fior and they said “underscore” out loud and did like a squat with their arms straight out and that was when I knew we’d be best friends but anyway that’s what’s inspiring my url at the moment
This week would be excellent if I get just ONE acceptance letter.
