This Week: Week 2 Assignments

In class, we are learning to format Word documents, using boldface lettering and  the centering option. I think I like the 2003 version of Word better but it is only because that is the program that I used when I wrote all of my past papers. I took two quizzes and got good grades on them both. One was on plagiarism and the other was on different features of the Word 2007 program. It is imperative that we learn how to use this program because we will use it in every class we take here at Shorter. This course will be a good refresher course for me.

Week 1: Classes I am Taking

These are the two classes that I am currently taking. So far, the Economics class is more daunting to me than the Introduction to College Learning class because I have had a class like the Intro class when I was at another school. I am concerned about the level of reading and technical things to learn because I have so much going on at home. I am a full time caretaker for my mother and sometimes she can be more than a handful. I think that there is no assignments that can be accepted late here at Shorter, and that concerns me because oftentimes I end up at the hospital or at doctor's offices all day. I know that other people have difficult situations and some (maybe even most) are more difficult than mine; I am merely explaining my situation. I  know that if I apply myself I can do anything, so right now the anxiety I am feeling can be based upon new school jitters. I look forward to learning and I hope that I can continue to be a good student as well as a help to my fellow students. Well, that's all for now. Have a great weekend everyone.

Welcome to my blog. In this blog I will attempt to discuss some of the things I am learning at Shorter University and give you a snapshot of what my life is like as a student. I hope that you all will find this interesting and I will try my best to make it worth your time to read. I will also post musings and poetry, but if there is anything that you would like to see please feel free to email or leave me a message and I will try to accommodate you as best I can. Again, thanks for taking the time to read my little corner of cyberspace.
