bad beginnings

    Two weeks into the new semester and we've hardly started our online classes. The chat platform for class was impossible to access Monday night until 45 minutes into one class. The other was simply an orientation chat, so this week we will cover three chapters in discussion (the two from last week and the one for this week).

    At this point, I'm not too crazy about these online courses. I feel very disoriented, like I am always forgetting to do something . . . LIKE GOING TO CLASS!?!?!

    I am keeping up with the reading. That's not a problem. I do have to concentrate to keep the different due dates and chat times straight for the two classes, and what's associated with which class! I spent an evening integrating the syllabi into one schedule, which should help keep me more organized.

    Did I say how boring the texts are?? The extra readings are interesting, though, so that's something. The texts, however . . . I just keep thinking, "What is your point, mister??"

    For today, I'm going to try to split my day between pleasure, chores, and papers/reading. We've had only two days of sunshine in two weeks of rain -- and now the rain (and cold) is back. Blech!
