I started a grad class this week, and I'm feeling a little bitter about it. Not because I don't appreciate higher education, but mostly...it's cutting into my blogging and social online time.
Right now, as the clock is nearing midnight and I'm slogging my way through my first paper, I'm beginning to feel grouchy and whiny. Those of you who are teachers or parents of school-aged children will probably recognize these particular brands of whine:
I don't get it.
What are we supposed to do?
Is this for a grade?
Do I have to put my name on it?
When is this due?
I can't find my pencil.
Can I turn it in late?
Why do we have to do this?
I need to go to the bathroom.
And that just about sums up how I feel right now! So wish me luck, as I gripe my way through class and long to blog instead.
OK, time to buck up and get back to business...
