One Of My Favorite Things . . .

Is the day after an assignment is due – when I usually take a day off from school. It is such a wonderful feeling to be done, even if it is only for a little while. I got quite a bit done today including a good workout. Now, I’m going to go have some of my birthday chocolate – and then I expect to get a good night’s sleep. Yeah for Monday, November 13th!!

  1. Well, ok, churches have Low Sundays following major holidays… it always irked me when students wouldn’t show up for class, after All I’d Done, but I can see the point of a day off.

    Wow! I hadn’t really thought about what I was saying when I wrote about taking the day off from school. What is utterly fascinating to me is that although I have only been taking classes online for four semesters, it has totally changed my view of going to school. I was never one to skip class – especially when I was paying for it. I have found in an online environment (because of my own school habits), I am always working on school work. There is generally a set amount of work with due dates and students are responsible for having the work done by the due date. There are no face-to-face meetings, so there isn’t as much accountability throughout the semester. My life in the online environment is much more consumed with school work than in the traditional educational environment. I find it much more difficult to get time away – and ususally try to make certain that I take some time for myself after something is due (unless something else is due right away).

    So, in effect, on Monday, I didn’t think about the in-basket exercise that is due on November 26th, the final for ILS565-Library Management, read any textbook or work on the semester-long project for ILS530-Information Systems Analysis & Design. I did print off this week’s lectures and skim through them briefly – to make sure that I had the time to forget about them for the rest of the day.
