I’m now registered in school for two classes, I am officially a student again, and I’m terrified. This morning I was looking over the syllabus for Web Design I, which I’m retaking because I got an F and I’m freaking out y’all. This instructer is serious about the concepts and ideas behind web design, I think she’s an artist.
I have to do a TERM PAPER! For Web Design??? Doesn’t that somewhat defeat the purpose, writing a paper about design? I have the option to do a one page paper and design a website, which I think I will probably do. I need to get more details. I have a lot of reading to do this weekend, and catching up to do. Classes started on Tuesday and I registered yesterday.
AND….I don’t even have my books yet! I will be getting that handled ASAP. I have a few more things to work out with the school while I get started, but they’ll work out. I still can’t believe I have to write a term paper. I’ve never had to do that.
So I’m a little worried about it, the classes I’m taking I won’t say seem easy, because that’s usually how I set myself up for disaster, expecting things to be easy. I keep telling myself that this semester I’m going to do better, take it more seriously and not think I can devote less time than everyone else because I’m SO smart.
Yes, I do get a little conceited when I become a student again. But truth is I shouldn’t really because I’d bet half my counterparts at least are doing better than I am in their careers. I wouldn’t even call what I’m doing a career because I don’t like it.
So wish me luck, I hope that this semester goes well.
