long 4 weeks...

Term B is going to be a LONG 4 weeks!
I have probably mentioned before that I loathe online classes.
You do triple the work and do not learn anything.
I would much rather have to actually go to class every night.
If you have not guessed yet my class this term is online.
I am taking International Business.
I did not want to take this class online but that is the only way they offered it.
Now, I am actually getting a concentration in Int'l Business.
So, this class should be a piece of cake, right?!

Well, it would be if the prof was not trying to fit all of the material of a regular semester into FOUR WEEKS.
In 4 weeks, we have:
10 quizzes
2 negotiations
3 small papers
1 20-pg research paper
& any "extra" assignments necessary

That does not seem like a terrible amount of stuff until you see what actually goes into those assignments.
For 1 quiz we have to read 3 chapters, go over corresponding powerpoints w/ audio, & watch 2-4 videos.

So, if I drop off the face of the blogging world for the next 4 weeks just know that I am literally glued to my computer.
But the one GREAT thing about summer term is that it is ONLY 4 weeks.
So, in 28 days this class will be over!!!
{I am not promising to be a very nice person during those 28 days though!}

This is how I feel somedays...then I remember I hate public speaking;)


  1. I'm not a huge fan of online courses either, but unfortunately the whole program I'm doing is online. We have to do group projects through messageboards and e-mails - ugh. I hate group projects anyway but trying to organize things online? It's awful! Good luck with your course!!!

  2. You can do it! Thanks for the well wishes for my hubs!
