Just dropped in to say "Hi!"

I have time for the quickest of quick posts before I dash off to write 500 words on three different topics for my Advanced Composition class.

I love school. LOVE IT! Statistics: We're doing sets. Who knew that developing databases would have useful applications in academia?

Advanced Composition: Lots and lots and lots of writing. Loving the class, fearing the work.

Psychology: Both the lab and the lecture look good so far.

Women & Work: I'm interested in the subject matter, but I wish it were less about the contemporary (which NPR has given me a good grounding in) and more about the historical. Though we are going to talk about the Triangle Shirtwaist fire on Thursday.

I don't have my communications class until Friday.

General impressions:

1. Lots of walking. I'd forgotten how much walking one does, going to and from classes.
2. COMPUTERS. Ohmigod, what a difference 16 years makes. Many of our assignments are being given to us on-line. We're e-mailing assignments in, chatting on discussion boards with our classmates.
3. As I'd already gathered from Scrivener and others, plagiarism is a big issue. BIG.

Again, to sum up, I LOVE SCHOOL. Me. I can hardly believe it.

Gotta go now, to write non-bloggy stuff. (Why is that always less fun?)

I'm so excited for you! What does Muffin Man say about you being in school?

Woohooo!

Scrivener said...

I'm so jealous! I wanna go back to school too. But I guess I'd have to leave it first, huh?

Hooray for you!

You're inspiring. As sson as these kids hit kindergarden, I'm off to hit the books!

Good for you. I can't help but say I'm proud of you and what you're doing.

Yay, school!

This year off has been torture for me. I ask my husband if he wants me to write his papers for him (alas, he does not), and I ALWAYS am up to edit anyone's anything at any time.

Marc said...

Hi Liz! Glad you are enjoying school. Every time I think about getting my Masters I remind myself just how much I hated school, so I admire anyone who would go back after being in the working world.

That is so cool that you're back in school. I am envious! :)
