Lots of Work

Last night, I sure was feeling that beginning-of-the-semester overwhelming tiredness! I had my 2.5 hour, once-a-week class yesterday afternoon (Native American Women and Religious Change), and I already have 80+ pages to read AND a paper due for this particular class. I was momentarily overwhelmed when she told us about the paper, especially since she wants it no more than two pages (I tend to get wordy, and sometimes it's hard to keep within such a limited number of pages). But then I realized that it should be fun to write, considering what she told us she wanted out of our papers. And to top it all off, our professor told us that this is her favorite class to teach. I love having a professor who is so enthusiastic about the subject!

This 2.5 hour class that I had yesterday had a reading assignment due for our first meeting (yesterday afternoon) - this was the one where I'd checked the online course management system on Monday, but the reading hadn't been posted yet. She actually got it posted sometime on Monday afternoon (or early evening); I'd checked after dinner and there it was! So I actually had plenty of time to read it before today's class; I had nothing to stress about after all. (I guess somebody was a little too impatient eager to jump in on the readings!)

Anyway, I've got my other class this afternoon (the anthropology one about Native American peoples of North America). 50 minutes and then I'm heading home. I've got to start reading in preparation for this class. Good thing it's in the afternoon - that leaves me time to get the reading finished (and take notes).

So this will probably be the last of the "daily" posts . . . for the rest of the semester, I'll be back to my usual "a few a week."

That sounds like a really fun class. One of the nursing classes I teach is 6 1/2 hours long!! I give them a lunch break to break it up but still!

Sounds like an interesting class. I would love to learn more about Native American cultures since I'm in the area to do so. I just don't like homework ;)
