Survivor: Grad School Edition
Virtual pomp and circumstance
Put a fork in it, because I am DONE! I had to run full throttle through most of March and April, but nary an assignment, discussion, project, or survey remains. My grad school experience is O to the V to the E to the R! As I’m basking in the afterglow of academia, I thought I’d share a few things I’ve learned. Don’t worry, no pedagogy will appear in the content of this post!
- For a woman who puts the PRO in procrastination, I finished surprisingly early…over a week ahead of the final deadline. I just needed to rip the rest of that coursework off like a fused-on Band-Aid. It smarted, and took some of the hide, but I’m glad to be shet of it.
- Only a fool would take three grad classes during Standardized Testing Season. Only an idiot would take them online. Guilty on both counts.
- Speaking of online learning…a more accurate description is online doing. The convenience of not having to drive to campus comes with a price. Call me old-fashioned, but I just feel better about live-action learning.
- I’m pretty organized as it is, but I took it to a whole new color-coded level these past few weeks.
- Digital textbooks do not give me joy.
That’s it for this week, Gentle Reader. I need a little time to clear my head from all that theory and stuff. I’ll be out by the steel pond reading a book…for fun!
