I know me.
There is nothing more I appreciate than some quality time with myself.
Those are the positives. Where there are positives, there are also negatives.
Right now, I’m dealing with something I created. I did this to me. I’d like to blame someone else, but I also try to be honest.
I took a three credit class in July. It was the old-fashioned kind. The members of the class met every day, all day, for a week. Wham-bam, done.
I don’t know why I didn’t take more old-fashioned classes.
I am taking two online classes. Oh. My. Gosh. I am living a nightmare. My problem isn’t with the instructors. The book I needed for one course just arrived a few hours ago. I have seven lessons to do. I have a wedding to attend on Saturday, but otherwise, I’ll be working on Portfolio Assessments this weekend. I’m confident I’ll handle this.
My big problem is with Enhancing Instruction with Power Point. Yes, I understand the fundamentals, but in class I’m asked to step beyond fundamentals. I’m supposed to do a Pack and Go. I would just save the presentation on a thumb, but…
I am one of those people who often have questions. Without the presence of an instructor, there is a lag time between question and answer. I am also a visual learner. I need the item in front of me. I am one of those people who need a visual and verbal connection.
This problem doesn’t just exit in my classes. It is something that carries over with my writing. I am at war with myself. Don’t you just hate it when you are your biggest obstacle?
I make an effort to understand my process and work with it, rather than against it.
