Am I going to do?
Welp, I started my 4th term and I think I’m getting the hang of it! 😀 The class I’m most excited about is my Literature class. We’re studying mythology! My favorite! I keep wanting to read ahead. I can’t stop reading it! One thing at a time, I know.
I’m not sure how I feel about math history just yet. Right off the bat, we were assigned a 10 page research. The professor gave us 5 topics to choose from: history of math, fibonacci golden ratio, kepler’s snowflake, infinity, and tesellations. I chose tesellations. Yep, not sure how I feel. Maybe once I get all the resources it’ll be easy to go forth.
While I like the convenience of the online classes, sometimes with everything going on, I wish I could go to a class. I have no one to take care of everything if I was to do that. So, while those who think online classes are easy because we can “go to class” when we want, it really isn’t. I have to hold my toddler while I’m sitting at the computer. Typing with one hand is not easy. Especially since my mind is faster. I get a lot of typos. Thank goodness for automatic correction in word. As soon as I sit to do my work someone hollers for me. Or I hear I’m hungry or I’m thirsty. Yes, I do try to make sure they’ve got eveything they need taken care of and make sure they have plenty to do. It doesn’t always work.
It takes more focus doing online classes than when having to go on campus. Going on campus you have no one but you to worry about. You can sit in class and take notes without being interupted. Can study and focus. At home I have loud, rambunctious, onery but pretty awesome boys. They, at times, can be needy and demanding. I’m the one they depend on. It can be overwhelming and that doesn’t help my anxiety at all.
Online classes, for me, isn’t easy by any means. It may be easy for others that know how to do multiple things all at once. One of my friends, she amazes me at how much she can do at once. I think I would end up in a corner, sucking my thumb, mumbling to myself and rocking back and forth with all that she does. It stresses me out just watching her. I have no idea how people do it. I have tried. And it fills me with rage and raises my anxiety levels so bad that my blood pressure spikes. Nope, multitasking is not my forte.
Other than that I do enjoy learning something new everyday. And I do find time, as small amout that it may be, to do some work without the toddler. Like right now my little one is in my lap asleep as I’m using my mobile phone to type this. There is no way I can move him to bed without him waking up. He’s an extremely light sleeper.
Anyway, I’m going to jump off here. I hope y’all are doing well.
Until next time. . .
