More to do, less time to do it
So I started my online classes a week ago. Of course the first week is easy. Basically our only assignment in most classes was to read the syllabus, introduce ourselves, or provide basic info. But this week the work starts. I spent about 3 hours Saturday reading textbooks. Every Thursday I have a madatory live chat with my English class from 6:30-7:50. I have 2 assignments for English this week, one of which is a 3 page rough draft. My only CIS assignment is easy this week and I've already done it, signing up for the online coursework program we will use. No assignments due for COMM this week, thankfully, but I do have some chapters to read once my textbook shows up. I hope is shows up soon cuz I don't want to get too far behind. I'd forgotten that going to school is like having a part-time job with how much work needs to be put into it. I'm just worried that time already seems to go by so quickly, I'm afraid it'll go even faster and I'll feel bogged down. I hope that after a few weeks I won't feel so overwhelmed just thinking about it. I'll have to see how I do this semester before I decide whether to take 2 or 3 classes next semester when I have a new baby to take care of too.
