Grad school

Remember how I pre ordered a copy of my grad text book so I could get a head start with the reading? Well tonight was my first grad class and I hadn't even cracked open the book.

Each week I have to read about 100 pages in the book along with 3-4 other articles. And even though I knew this course would be quite heavy I still DID NOTHING to prepare. Oh procrastination is still one of my less attractive skills.

So the only time I'll have time to read/ do assignments will be from 9:30 pm - whenever Monday to Friday. I put in 1 hour of reading tonight and it's already 11:30. I got through 12 pages in that time. I'm a slow reader. A very very slow reader.

In case you were curious about why my chapter is about, let me explain:

I'm reading about the 3 conditions (changing demographics, global economy, information and technology) characteristic of current sociocultural context that are shaping the learners needs of adults in today's world (Merriam et al, 2007).

Interesting hey? Yah, I thought so......

This semester is going to KILL me!

I have started my MBA with a specialization in HR. I have 3 assignments and 3 exams to do before October, and also a baby on the way in October, and a toddler to run around after. But you know what, I don't like having free time with nothing to do...you seem to be a lot like me. Fill all your time up doing productive things. It's stressful and a lot of work, but we can do it!!
